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

Durant, in his first season with the Warriors, led the way in a 4-1 series win over the Cavaliers to capture his maiden National Basketball Association title.

Durant won himself the honor of Finals MVP with a team high of 39 points along with 7 rebounds and 5 assists, and clearly, his mother couldn't be prouder.

The Golden State Warriors - still relatively young, still in a growing phase, immensely talented and the latest super team, in the parlance of the day - had just dispatched James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in a five-game championship series, establishing themselves as a dynasty in the making and a target for the other 29 teams to shoot at.

"I'm not the GM of the team; I'm not in the front office, but I know our front office is going to continue to try to put our ball club, put our franchise in a position where we can compete for a championship year in and year out", James said.

And because that was not enough for the Warriors, they absolutely had to woo Kevin Durant in free agency last summer. "So, I do not anticipate any issues with him staying".

History will always note that Durant's first championship came against James.

"I [heard] all the narratives throughout the season that I was hopping on bandwagons, letting everybody else do the work", Durant said.

Some reports have suggested James, the best player on the planet, may head to California to join the Lakers or Clippers in 2018, likely bringing talented players along in an effort to topple the Warriors if the Cavaliers fall short again next year.

As expected for Cleveland, LeBron James came in as the leading scorer with 41 points.

Durant was named the Most Valuable Player of the NBA Finals on Monday after claiming an elusive NBA championship over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

"We don't need or want to be talked about", Danny Green once said.

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

Durant also becomes the first player since Shaquille O'Neal back in 2000 to tally five consecutive 30-point games in an NBA Finals series.

"We were thrilled how the ratings were after the series", says Julie Sobieski, VP of programming for ESPN, which produced the Finals telecasts for broadcaster and Walt Disney Co. sibling ABC. "But we were able to keep our eyes open to someone who could make this whole thing complete".

Monday night's episode of Jeopardy!, which was nearly certainly pre-recorded weeks or even months ago, ended up being well-timed for the Warriors' Game 5 win to become the 2017 NBA Champions. Draymond Green is under contract, Klay Thompson is the wild card but his chance at more titles rest best with staying in Golden State, and finding other role players to fill in the roster shouldn't be all that hard given the franchise's allure. "I bet with the homies, one of the homies back there is sick, he can't even get home". "I can't wait to celebrate with my teammates in the locker room".

"We had a moment", Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said.
