3. Allen Iverson after the Warriors won the title
“That’s the only reason I was going for Golden State. I wanted Durant to feel what I never got a chance to feel”. Said Iverson. “I wanted Barkely to feel it. I wanted Ewing to feel it. Because LeBron is gonna win some more. He’s gonna do it.”
2. LeBron James says he has never played for a super team
LeBron James and his Cleveland Cavaliers failed to defend their championship title. The Golden State Warriors ran over them in only five games. Most of the games in the series weren’t even close as the Warriors’ Super Team showed their absolute dominance and superiority over the Cavs.
While the Warriors are undoubtedly the best team in the NBA by a large margin and their super team is unstoppable, LeBron James believes that he has never played on a super team. Despite winning two championships and going to the NBA Finals four straight times during his tenure in Miami. But he doesn’t think the Heat were a super team. He also doesn’t think that the current Cavaliers are a super team, despite them having two other superstars beside LeBron.
Even before they signed Kevin Durant, the Golden State Warriors were a super team. A year ago, they finished the regular season with 73 wins, which is the best regular-season record in NBA history. By Durant, the Warriors took their game to a new level, loosing one game in playoffs this year.
1. The Golden State Warriors Enjoy Trophy Parade In Oakland
Oakland, California was a sea of royal blue and gold on Thursday. The Golden State Warriors basked in their second NBA championship in three years.
The Western Conference powerhouse were crowned basketball kings once more on Monday, when they defeated Eastern Conference rivals the Cleveland Cavaliers 129-120 to clinch an unassailable 4-1 series lead in the Finals. That victory on home court at the Oracle Arena prompted mass celebrations that were replicated ten-fold just three days later in the Bay Area.
NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant rode on a different bus with his mum as the whole star-studded roster, including Klay Thompson and Draymond Green enjoyed the special day.
‘I was expecting more,’ said head coach Steve Kerr told KTVU-TV, joking about the size of the crowd, while adding that he was proud that the team ‘came back from the heartbreak of last year.’
