Kevin Durant capped his spectacular first season with the Warriors by bringing home that coveted National Basketball Association championship he joined Golden State last July so determined to get.

The hoards of Warriors fans outside Oracle Arena Monday night, celebrating after the team brought home the National Basketball Association championship, were dealt a surprise when Kevin Durant stepped out of a vehicle, hoisted his MVP trophy and cheered alongside with them. Every time James and Kyrie Irving kickstarted a run and got their hands on the ledge, Durant was there, rising up for a three and stomping his landing right on their fingers.

"To go up against somebody I view as like a rival, personally, is an unbelievable feeling to beat him", Durant claimed. "I feel like we've grown from that".

"We're obviously just getting started", the two-time NBA Most Valuable Player said. If you're looking for a great way to celebrate Durant and the Warriors win, customize a pair now while you have a chance from nike.com.

He also produced what will likely go down as the signature moment of the Finals when he hit a three-pointer over LeBron James with 45 seconds left in Game Three that gave the Warriors the lead for good and all but sealed the Cavaliers' fate. "No matter what anybody said, you did it".

"He felt like he needed to reassemble and reassess his career and come here", continued James. "That's something that they are always going to speak about, about you". That could involve moving forward Kevin Love, who was only 2-for-8 for 6 points in the final game. "Keep your cool. Don't argue with the refs, '" Green revealed after winning the 2017 NBA Finals in five games over the Cleveland Cavaliers. They couldn't throw it away again, could they? "I was anxious. I was jittery. So for me personally I have no reason to put my head down", he said.

"We battled. But we did it".

"But we're champions and it's wonderful doing it on our home court". "He's put the time in and I'm just so happy for him to be able to realize his goal and be my teammate".

"A lot of guys cried because they wanted it bad", Lue reported of the postgame scene in the Cleveland locker room. Then it was Golden State's turn again, taking the title in five games.

However, Iguodala assisted a Durant dunk and added one of his own off a Curry feed, reopening a double-digit lead and making the final 7:42 an extended celebration among the Oracle Arena fans. "I told you when I was eight years old".
