Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson from left guard Stephen Curry and forward Kevin Durant celebrate after Game 5 of basketball’s NBA Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers in Oakland Calif. Monday

Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (23) celebrates after the game against the Cleveland Cavaliers in game four of the Finals for the 2017 NBA Playoffs at Quicken Loans Arena.

After joining the Warriors in July 2016 - a decision which caused shockwaves in the National Basketball Association world among talk of a GSW "super team" - it took Durant just one season to win his first championship.

Golden State's championship-clinching victory in Game 5 of the NBA Finals was watched by more than 25 million viewers on ABC, wrapping up the most-viewed series since Michael Jordan's last title in 1998.

Golden State beat Cleveland in the 2015 Finals only to lose to them previous year, squandering a 3-1 series lead. "Coach puts us in position to maximize our strengths".

Warriors fans had to suffer through watching their team blow a 3-1 series lead a year ago. "If you want to win, it doesn't matter".

"I just wanted to lay it all out there. So you have a clear sense of what matters when you go through that stuff". While fans in the audience chanted "say you're sorry!" at Smith, he conceded and offered a good-hearted "I'm sorry" to Wanda while she smiled and laughed.

"Not one time did I feel like we were overmatched until probably like I looked up, there was like a minute 20, and we were down 13, I believe, or something at that point", James said.

Two playful superstars who found a way to coexist through all the questions and constant scrutiny, together and smiling as champions.

One moment late Monday captured the camaraderie that evolved. They learned from each other every step of the way, they pushed one another through fierce shooting competitions that were pure entertainment on a practice floor.

That would be his mom, Wanda Durant, who he proclaimed was the "real MVP" immediately after winning the award of regular season MVP in 2014. "What we've built here is truly special, it's unique, it's something that you don't want to see end at all", Curry said.

". As we go into the talks and this whole process, which is obviously new for me, I will approach it to get the most out of it I can as an individual, as a player, and something that I've been working for for a very long time".
