Rihanna, Snoop Dogg, Others React to Golden State Warriors Victory

It all added up to Golden State's second championship in three years.

For James, already a three-times champion, the loss puts him in rare company as only the fourth player to come up short in five NBA Finals.

After rocking the NBA past year with his decision to leave Oklahoma City as a free agent and sign with the Warriors, Durant's dream came true Monday when Golden State beat Cleveland 129-120 to win the best-of-seven NBA Finals four games to one. Lakers president of basketball operations Magic Johnson has said he's looking more toward next summer's free agency than this summer's free agency.

Courtesy of a 129-120 victory over the Cavaliers in Game 5 of the 2017 NBA Finals, the Golden State Warriors earned their second championship in three years and third title since the franchise relocated to the Bay Area in 1962.

"They have an incredible team". "I know I'm a very important role model in his life and a really strong voice in his ear and he needed to hear me say it". "You just pick yourself back up and you keep pushing and you keep going". He has had a great run with the Los Angeles Clippers, but that team's window - whether they want to accept it or not - has closed. "Pretty much all their guys are in their 20s".

Did LeBron have a case for Finals MVP?: This may be a stretch with how dominant Kevin Durant was. "Adding (George) to the mix might be the closest thing we could see to another team challenging (Golden State) next year", Sherman said, before adding that the Warriors would still be the favourites. "It's fun to be part of this. I feel like we've grown from that". Now we are left to an offseason of people wondering just how long this dynasty could last.

Maybe Thompson or Curry would have hit those shots if Durant never came to Golden State; maybe the Warriors would have won the title without him; maybe Durant didn't actually alter National Basketball Association history in any meaningful way. But instead of celebrating Golden State's greatness, former players are poking holes in the Warriors' historic achievements. "I don't know. I can't explain it". "So there's going to be a lot of teams that's trying to figure out ways to.match that if they're able to actually face them in the playoffs".

With no other options, James simply tucked the ball to his side like a running back hitting an A-gap and drove to the hole, daring someone to stop him, knowing no one could.

She grabbed the eight-time All-Star by his chin hair, through cameras and fans clamoring for his attention, and said to her son, "Look at me!"
