Warriors' Game 5 win wraps up highly-watched NBA Finals

The best ever?

The best ever?

Warriors Coach Steve Kerr missed several games this year with back issues. "This whole day, this whole atmosphere, is unbelievable".

Iguodala said that the Warriors would ultimately follow the decision made by star player Stephen Curry.

He also produced what will likely go down as the signature moment of the Finals when he hit the three-pointer over James with 45 seconds left in Game Three that gave the Warriors the lead for good and all but sealed the Cavaliers' fate.

"I don't see a big gap", Lue said. "This is the best job in the world".

There is no doubt the Warriors are a super team, with a roster that features Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant - both league MVPs - as well as Klay Thompson and Draymond Green. "I'm trying to build a second part of my life as a man living in a different part of the country, just trying to do different things", he told The Washington Post earlier this year. "Hopefully we can keep it going. Thank you for the support".

Golden State has a cumulative 207-39 record in the last three regular seasons.

"I couldn't sleep for two days", Durant said. "Going through this year was so much fun".

The most-watched NBA Finals since 1998 wrapped on a high note.

That may be the case, but in the end it's Durant who got the last laugh as he finally made it to the National Basketball Association promised land.

The team noted they had not even been invited to the White House. I'd be honored to welcome the team to the U.S. Capitol.

"It's just a great group of guys, great community, great arena, great fans", Durant said after the Warriors clinched the title.

He walked away from a city, shoot, an entire state that treasured him, and a franchise committed and close to winning a title, to join an all-star team nearly guaranteed a championship.

The Bay Area is a well-known hotbed of civil disobedience, as it served as the birthplace of The Black Panther Movement and has been a place where protests live to fight against a corrupt system.

Regardless the team is hoping to be celebrating another title next June.

According to USA Today's Sam Amick, before the Warriors' championship-clinching Game 5, Andre Iguodala was asked if he would accept an invitation to the White House and said "hell nah".
