Cleveland and Golden State are the only teams with single-digit odds. Golden State in 2015, the Cavaliers previous year, the Warriors again this time.
"I couldn't sleep for two days", Durant admitted. "I'm just so happy to be a part of it". "We battled. I told him, "We're tied up now" - and we're going to try to do this thing again, but I'm gonna celebrate this one tonight".
High-profile recruit Durant was the difference as the Warriors wrapped up a 4-1 series triumph on home court in Oakland.
The Golden State Warriors are no longer a super team in name only.
The only real drama in the Warriors' path to a championship this season was Kerr's health. "It's a combination of talent and an unselfish nature".
Fouled Out-None. Rebounds-Cleveland 40 (James 13), Golden State 42 (Green 12).
The Cavaliers shot 53.4 percent overall and 45.8 percent from 3. Irving added 26 points and six assists. "LeBron was the only person I've looked at that could look me eye to eye".
The win is the Warriors second title in three years while on the other side, James goes to three wins and five losses in the NBA Finals.

"The way that he embraced the opportunity in the Finals, it was unbelievable", Curry said. To be back here, bring ol' Larry back home, I'm just excited to do something special.
The run helped the Warriors win the second quarter by 15 points.
The superteam kept the Cavaliers from accomplishing their goal of defending the 2016 championship, and James took a question about how he viewed Golden State in terms of what it might mean for his own future in the league.
From there, the Warriors defense stiffened and the Cavaliers congratulated the Warriors as the finals seconds ticked off the clock and the crowd went wild.
"It's just a great group of guys, great community, great arena, great fans", Durant said. The lanky forward averaged 35.2 points, 8.4 rebounds and 5.4 assists to take home the Bill Russell Finals MVP trophy.
