Many congratulated Golden State on its title.
Durant - drafted as second-overall pick by the Seattle SuperSonics in 2007 - was an easy choice for the Finals MVP. "Love you, girl, but I got to do it", Durant told USA Today Sports. "I was anxious. I was jittery".
"I got nothing but love and respect for him and I can't wait to compete against him again next season", he said.
Kerr still found time to crack a joke on the stage afterward: "Well, we had very little talent, actually, it was mostly coaching". I'm not playing golf, I'm not playing tennis.
"The way that he embraced the opportunity in the Finals, it was unbelievable", Curry said. The Warriors crumbled a year ago after taking a 3-1 lead, walked out of Oracle Arena bruised, wounded and devastated after a Game 7 defeat, agonizingly unaware that something much more than a silver lining awaited. Finals MVP, 4-1, world champions.
Star player Steph Curry, who has an endorsement deal with Under Armour, has been critical of Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank's support of President Trump.
The answer: An emphatic no. Scorned and scrutinized from every angle for that decision, Durant triumphantly raised his arms and an MVP trophy Monday night all these months later- beaming as a first-time National Basketball Association champion, just as planned. Moses Malone did it with the Philadelphia 76ers in 1983, and Magic Johnson accomplished it in his rookie year with the Los Angeles Lakers in 1980.
While the Warriors were 73-9 without Durant, they needed him for the NBA Finals against James. I put in work, I just had to trust in it. "But then that was far from the truth. This is a team sport and I just try and do my best with the team".
"Last year we got beat by a better team". I think they were great.

"I'm thrilled, man, to win a championship". He had 10 points, 12 rebounds and five assists in the clincher. Iguodala added 20 points.
Others just had to let out a good cry.
The Warriors also did much of this without their head coach on the sideline for an extended period of this postseason. Even though Kerr returned, he still had some complications.
After guiding the squad to its second championship in three years, Kerr was visibly emotional with tears. There were times I was just stunned, looking at the talent on the floor, on both teams.
Monday's loss denied the Cavaliers a chance to repeat as champions and for James to get his fourth championship ring. I'm like, I'm going to bash everybody. "They're going to be around for a while. Because they're built for - from my eyes, they're built to last a few years". He averaged a triple double during the NBA Finals.
Kyrie Irving had 26 points while JR Smith had 25. I felt like RJ [Richard Jefferson] was talkin' junk the whole series, then the media, J.R. [Smith] said some things. "You have to give those guys a lot of credit". And that's all you can ask. "If you want to win, it doesn't matter".
"I credit our guys".
"LeBron and Kyrie I've never seen nothing like them two before".
