Golden State became the first team to score at least 100 points in every game of the playoffs, and Curry was clearly delighted when he joined NBA TV for his postgame chat with a cigar. "This is something that we want to continue to do, but for us to have these conversations that we had nearly a year ago and now being in this position, worth every shot we took in practice, fighting through injuries that he had this year, and it's an unbelievable feeling".
"We hadn't talked about it much, probably some side conversations here and there", Curry said.
However, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-San Francisco, will gladly welcome the Warriors to Washington, D.C. In a tweet Tuesday morning, she said, "I'd be honored to welcome the team to the U.S. Capitol".
As unforgettable for the rest of the National Basketball Association was the way the Warriors attacked the season, blending Durant's inside power with Curry and Klay Thompson's outside shooting to create a deadly combination and potentially long-lasting one. If you want to win, it doesn't matter. "To experience this with her; she knows how important it is to me". He won a championship, and then we were close and didn't win one.
Outmatched by the Warriors, James and Irving nonetheless put on an offensive spectacle for the second year in a row, scoring 67 combined points in Game 5 after scoring 71 combined points in Game 4 and 77 combined points in Game 3. You went to sleep hungry.
Takeaways from Cavaliers vs. Warriors NBA Finals Game 5
With the off-season acquisition of Durant, the Warriors, arguably, have the NBA's best collection of players in recent decades. Although he did not have the individual game high numbers, Thompson averaged 16.4 points per game over the finals.
"Most recently six members of the New England Patriots publicly announced they would not be attending their championship White House visit, with defensive end Chris Long being quoted as saying, "[When] my son grows up - and I believe the legacy of our president is going to be what it is - I don't want him to say, 'Hey dad, why'd you go when you knew the right thing was to not go?'" Whatever it is, the big-money contract will be a hefty raise from the $12 million he earned on the way to a 16-1 postseason.
Durant didn't really need a hard sell that day in the Hamptons.
"As far as this season, I'm proud of our guys for being a resilient group and staying the course, even when it didn't look great", Lue said. To be back here, bring ol' Larry back home, I'm just excited to do something special. As a grinning Curry held daughter Riley in his arms, Durant stood next to them with his left hand on the point guard's head. Whenever he is asked about his own accomplishments, he is always quick to offer a reminder just as he did with a new National Basketball Association champions hat on his head: "It's a team sport".
Curry entered the game midway through the run, but didn't take long to make his presence felt. They learned from each other every step of the way, they pushed one another through fierce shooting competitions that were pure entertainment on a practice floor. Golden State went 11-0 during that stretch before Kerr returned for Game 2 of the NBA Finals. And as Warriors small forward Andre Iguodala said to USA TODAY Sports heading into Game 5, there's a chance the invite will never come. "And when Steph turned that corner, I think it was after Christmas Day, when he turned that corner, we became nearly unbeatable".
