Warriors' Game 5 win wraps up highly-watched NBA Finals

Kevin Durant celebrates with his mother Wanda Durant. Despite the fact that they were a much better team in the Finals, LeBron James shouldn't think of his Cavaliers any less.

Now that the Finals are over, the next step for the Cleveland Cavaliers is to evaluate how far away they are from the Golden State Warriors and make adjustments.

What stood out the most to me, however, was watching Wanda and Kevin Durant take in everything that comes with winning an NBA Championship for the first time. "Like I said, tried to be myself, be aggressive and sacrifice as well".

"We're going to do whatever it takes to keep Steph here and happy", Lacob told Tim Kawakami of Bay Area News Group when asked if the Warriors will offer Curry the maximum $205 million over five years this summer. Curry, who's been vastly underpaid his whole career - there are 81 players making more than him this season - will likely seek a max contract, which will be five years and about $205 million.

Boston has the No. 1 pick in the draft to add to a team that went to the Eastern Conference finals this season.

Even from six rows back, 9- and 10-year-old brothers William and Rizal Cahambing were not going to miss a chance to see their favorite Golden State Warriors player, Stephen Curry, as he rode atop a double-decker bus during Thursday's parade to celebrate the team's latest championship.

"I knew it was going to be a battle I just tried to challenge him - you can't stop the guy".

No one is questioning Steve Kerr's coaching abilities nor the Warriors' drafting success. They always change. The Warriors won't be the same when Commissioner Adam Silver hands them their rings next October (when the league's longer season created to give more rest over the 82-game span) begins. "It was fantastic to just see that all year, and right now just to be here with these guys, it's awesome". "Blessed to be able to know I'll be playing at least in the National Basketball Association for four years and see where it goes from there, '" he tells Kawakami. "I just wanted to come in there and just be me".

Durant is so dedicated to winning multiple championships that he is reportedly considering taking less money from the team in order to free up space to re-sign key reserves like Shaun Livingston and Andre Iguodala. He can't do it alone.

At the rally, Green mocked James' contention that James had never played for a super team. "I'm really proud where I am right now as a player and being as consistent every year as I've been".

And if he and the rest of the Warriors have their way, for years to come. I've been able to accomplish that individually.

The Cavaliers will be searching for answers in the off-season after being dethroned, the Warriors avenging last year's loss when they squandered a 3-1 finals lead.

This is a major start. They got rid of Harrison Barnes, Andrew Bogut, Festus Ezeli and other minor bench players to bring in Durant. "Love you, girl, but I gots to do it. GOTS to do it, you understand me?" "And he showed that".

The below image of Neymar appearing at the NBA Finals a week ago has received over 609,000 "likes" and almost 1,000 comments to date. "Doesn't get much better than that".
