A year ago, Golden State squandered a 3-1 lead to the Cavaliers, as Cleveland mounted the biggest comeback in NBA Finals history. One is that Golden State has to re-sign Iguodala and Livingston because Durant is giving up money in order to allow the Warriors to keep their championship roster intact.

The Warriors figure to sign Curry to a five-year deal for about $205 million since he has taken less money in recent years to help finance a strong supporting cast.

"Experience is the best teacher in life, and he's just experiencing and experiencing and experiencing", said James.

"And that last 3 minutes was a blur just of pure emotion and energy. I don't believe we're a superteam here".

The Cavs absolutely dominated the Eastern Conference to the tune of a 12-1 record, as they made their way to the NBA Finals to face the Golden State Warriors for a third straight year. "It's easier said than done obviously, but that's the goal".

While the Warriors haven't formally met to discuss whether they will visit President Donald Trump's White House as is customary for championship teams, Curry said his mind hasn't changed from when he was asked earlier this year about the possibility. Kerr returned for game two of the Finals and wins his second title in three years.

"I really hope that, before our career is over, we can all play together At least one, maybe one or two seasons-me, Melo, D-Wade, CP - we can get a year in". He's the first player ever to achieve that. "It's different just because of what happened previous year". "It was unbelievable to just see that all year, and right now just to be here with these guys, it's wonderful".

"The team we had, we were great, right where you want to be", said Warriors forward Draymond Green. Just as Kawhi Leonard gets credit for being the best "two-way" player in the game, Iggy is clearly the best "two-way" sixth man in the game. "When he turned that corner, we became nearly unbeatable".

According to Monte Pool of NBC Bay Area, Kerr told them in November that if the Warriors won the championship he wouldn't accept an invitation to the Donald Trump White House.

"He has had an unbelievable career, but he took it to the next level". They always change. The Warriors won't be the same when Commissioner Adam Silver hands them their rings next October (when the league's longer season created to give more rest over the 82-game span) begins. "He had an awesome series, just dominated", Kerr said. KD added an NBA Championship and an NBA Finals MVP trophy to his still growing trophy room. "Coach puts us in position to maximize our strengths".

Observers of both basketball and politics, you see, are watching to learn what happens next with Golden State. "That's when you see how precious these moments are". "And you can't describe it".
