Stars want to keep Warriors together

(They said) he couldn't play in the league, he couldn't start in the National Basketball Association.

"You don't want anybody to have to sacrifice in that sense", Curry said.

"This is a moment we all need to enjoy together and nothing should distract what we were able to accomplish together".

None of this is surprising to Wanda Durant.

The Warriors beat LeBron James and the Cavaliers in five games in the Finals.

William and Rizal's father, Ray Cahambing, said it was unfortunate Oakland was losing the Warriors, "but the diehard fans" would make the trip across the Bay to San Francisco to see the team.

She paused about 15 seconds, holding back tears.

"And in the time in the valleys, he really showed the fortitude for who he was as a man". And so I don't know as far as me personally right now. It was about the dream. Cleveland will have to navigate both internal and external financial limitations, but with the Warriors looming as the only team above them, they'll feel as much pressure as anyone to keep spending until they find the winning formula. I'll have that mindset, KD will have that mindset, I know Andre, Shaun, all the guys up to renegotiate new contracts - we'll see what happens - but it's the beauty of what I know of this team. A title felt inevitable - and anything less would be a colossal failure. Those picks would also be inherently less valuable because of where the Cavaliers project to finish in upcoming years.

With the league's current projection of a $102 million salary cap for 2018-19, the Lakers could have approximately $27.3 million in cap space-about $8.4 million short of James' $35.7 million maximum salary. "That's all I wanted". They're going to be around for a while. from my eyes, they're built to last a few years.

"I don't believe I've played for a superteam", James said after his Game 5 NBA Finals loss to the Golden State Warriors.

This was not a title Durant won by riding anyone's coattails. If anything, Golden State was riding his. "I feel like I'm part of this city now". We needed him to win this championship.


Durant had heard the criticism, of course, and apparently brushed it aside.

Not only is there no guarantee he's coming back, I'm not sure there's an expectation he's re-signing there. Even in his league MVP days with the Oklahoma City Thunder, Durant famously called his mom "the real MVP".

To those who share the court, locker room and trips across the country with him, Cleveland Cavaliers small forward LeBron James is a special player that turns an uncommon desire and drive to succeed into real-world results.

"He's always had that fire about it. he doesn't want to be No. 2".

People aren't going quite that far just yet. "I ain't doing no slaying". "We played like we did", Durant replies with a smile.

Also, James has obviously shaved his head since Game 5. In claiming its second National Basketball Association title in three seasons, Golden State somehow managed to out-deliver last year's thrilling seven-game Finals, which averaged 20.3 million viewers.

James' legacy as a Hall of Famer is surely already secure but aged 32 his window on a fourth Championship may be closing. Then he turned his attention to the fans. Well, unless you're me. There are decisions that need to be made every single year and you've got to assess the situation as it is.

" 'You did it your way".

"I was just trying to take it all in", Durant said as he got off the bus at Oakland's Henry J. Kaiser Convention Center for the post-parade ceremony.

"It has been a insane year for me".
