Kerr was hired as the Warriors' coach on May 19, 2014 and guided the team to a 67-15 regular-season record and an National Basketball Association championship in 2014-15. It all changed after that.
"That's what we needed". The bedrock trio of the team - Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green - were selected from rookie drafts, and not acquired from other teams via overpriced trades or the promise of inflated salaries. Kevin's journey, our team embraced him. A fabulous first one with and for Durant.
"There's going to be a lot of teams ... trying to figure out ways to put personnel together to try and match that if they're able to actually face them in the playoff series, both Eastern Conference and Western Conference".
Durant was named NBA Finals Most Valuable Player after averaging 35.2 points and 8.4 rebounds a game, and he became the first player since Shaquille O'Neal in 2000 to make 30 or more points in five finals games. And if you watched the final, the Warriors did need Durant to win.
A key contributor to the Warriors win Monday was sixth man Andre Iguodala who scored 20 points off the bench on 9/14 shooting in 38 minutes of action.
Well, what James is really saying is: It's because of me that my teams won championships, not super teams, and the reason we lost is because of my teammates and because the Warriors are a super team. It's about winning. I think he knew that. The team also said that it hasn't received an invitation to visit the White House, and that it will make a decision on whether to attend "when and if necessary". "So you have a clear sense of what matters when you go through that stuff". "All the pieces that we have are important to the equation of winning a championship and competing for a championship every single year".

Casey, who played in the afternoon, said he drew inspiration from watching Fowler's round on television in the morning. For most others, like Henrik Stenson, it was being careless off the tee and facing the rigorous test of recovering.
"Experience is the best teacher in life, and he's just experiencing and experiencing and experiencing", said James.
David West finally got paid, but not necessarily in cash.
There will be a parade Thursday in Oakland to celebrate Golden State's win. Yes, Bryant is ahead on the ring count, but team achievements are just that, and LeBron lapped him in individual accolades years ago.
West could have cashed in somewhere else, or stayed in Indy for more money, but he knew which teams gave him the best chance to win.
"They're going to be around for a while", James said. They played by the rules, will pay the luxury tax on their bloated payroll, and adding Durant certainly doesn't look like a bad move right now.
Wanda was front and center in all of the ceremonies, and you can see nearly every member of the organization pay respect to her throughout the celebrations.
