Durant capped his spectacular first season with the Warriors by bringing home that coveted National Basketball Association championship he joined Golden State last July so determined to get, scoring 39 points in a fast-and-furious, Finals-clinching 129-120 victory over LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 5 on Monday night.
It was the second parade in three seasons for the Warriors, who wrapped up their latest crown by finishing off a five-game victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday.
When the Golden State Warriors rocked the landscape of the National Basketball Association by signing Kevin Durant last summer, National Basketball Association commissioner Adam Silver was one of the first to say he did not think the move was good for the league.
James responded with a "that's what she said" joke on Instagram.
Jefferson then began to remark, "The one thing I will say ..." but Frye interjected with, "Is that he's ugly?"
Golden State won the series in five games and Green displayed a shirt that said "Quickie" with the Quicken Loans symbol.
After the blue and gold confetti rained down on the court, the NBA didn't waste any time to start selling commemorative 2017 NBA Finals gear.
"I've been feeling good", James added, pointing out that he had been planning on shaving his head for some time and not just because of the Warriors.

May said those living in similar high-rises "also want answers" and ordered local authorities to complete urgent safety checks. Protesters are descending on Downing Street chanting "May out" as she becomes the figurehead for much of the outrages.
Durant's decision to depart the Oklahoma City Thunder and join the Warriors was criticized by many, and the title was a bit of redemption for the long-time superstar. "Thank you for the support".
Durant absolutely deserved the Finals MVP.
Authorities are prepared for fans to start gathering in the park around dawn, as the Warriors repeat their 2015 championship celebrations, which were marred by a nearby shooting that injured three people.
"I put in the work individually, in the film room, in my mind, my body every single day to prepare myself for whatever obstacle that this ball club entails", James said. He went from his rookie deal into an extension before he hit restricted free agency years back, signing a deal - four years, $44 million - that would prove to be far under his value.
Wojnarowski added that the Miami Heat, with whom James won his first two NBA Championships, could also be a possibility. But I don't look at it as - I definitely didn't start the super team, as that's what he's trying to say.
"No", James said when Green's superteam comments came up in the episode released Friday. "No". "But, obviously as a team, we're going to have a conversation".
Presidents have hosted world champion sports teams for decades, but the tradition has become a hot-button topic for athletes in recent years. That's what Joe Lacob was referring to when he said the Warriors are light years ahead.
