Kevin Durant says Warriors 'work extremely well together,' but aren't a superteam

Parmenio Sano | 19 Giugno, 2017, 03:53

Following the victory Monday night, warriors' fans danced in the streets in downtown Oakland and wildly honked their horns in San Francisco.

A native of Seat Pleasant in Prince George's County, the small forward thanked "everybody" in the town, Prince George's, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia.

The Warriors took the championship title away from the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday night, winning Game 5 129-120 and the series 4-1.

But whether his hometown gratitude makes up for him not signing to the Washington Wizards is up for debate.

"Not one time did I feel like we were overmatched until probably like I looked up, there was like a minute 20, and we were down 13, I believe, or something at that point", James said.

Golden State cruised to its second championship ring thanks to Kevin Durant, who claimed Finals MVP honors after posting the most efficient scoring performance in Finals history.

As for Curry, Business Insider reports that if he decides to stick with the Warriors, he'll be eligible for a five-year, $207.4 million contract, which would boost his salary to $35.7 million for next season.


"I couldn't quit, and there were times I wanted to quit, and I often said the sacrifice for me was not dying, that's what I sacrificed for my kids, not checking out on them", Wanda Durant said.

The Warriors won in 2015, but then blew a 3-1 lead in the Finals a year ago and lost the title to the Cavaliers after posting the best regular-season record in National Basketball Association history.

Green addressed the super team chatter while addressing the crowd just days after Cleveland's LeBron James - who played with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami - referenced that he had never played on a super team. It's the first championship won by a Bay Area team in their home arena, since the 1974 Oakland Athletics won the World Series.

"From my eyes, they're built to last a few years".

"You can talk about whatever happens on the outside, but inside those lines, I come to bring it every day", Durant said. A two-time league MVP in addition to being a two-time National Basketball Association champion, Curry will become eligible to receive a five-year, $205-million contract extension from the Warriors this offseason. "I'm really happy for him and his mom, all the garbage he had to put up with - and he got the last word".

They went 15-1 in the postseason, with sweeps in the first three rounds before beating LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in five games in the finals.
