Kevin Durant And His Mom

Kevin Durant And His Mom”

Warriors forward Kevin Durant, 28, was named the Most Valuable Player of the Finals. "I was anxious, I was jittery". "But tonight was a little different, just based on the things I've had to go through during this time". Against Golden State, he met an army of players constructed just to stop him, and LeBron still put in a superhuman effort the likes of which we've literally never seen before. He was incredible in the Finals, he was really good in the Finals two years ago for which he gets no credit. The Warriors took the first matchup in 2015 and looked like they were going to secure back to back titles in 2016, only to lose in 7 games in what was one of the biggest finals collapses in National Basketball Association history.

Durant's decision to join the Warriors from the Oklahoma City Thunder ahead of the season was met with acrimony from fans and pundits alike.

The first-time title victor scored 39 points as point guard Stephen Curry posted 34 at the Oracle Arena in Oakland. Stephen Curry added 34 points and 10 assists.

Durant - drafted as second-overall pick by the Seattle SuperSonics in 2007 - was an easy choice for the Finals MVP.

He walked away from a city, shoot, an entire state that treasured him, and a franchise committed and close to winning a title, to join an all-star team nearly guaranteed a championship.

- Kevin Durant became just the sixth player to score 30+ points in every game in a NBA Finals series, after Elgin Baylor, Ricky Barry, Michael Jordan, Hakeem Olajuwon and Shaquille O'Neal (twice).

But in the end, the 32-year old couldn't corral back-to-back championships.

"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. "But we prevailed, we're champions and it's fantastic doing it on our home floor". David West fought for the ball with Irving, then they got tangled up and Tristan Thompson entered the fray and he and West went at each other face-to-face. "I don't believe we're a super-team here".

LeBron James has 33 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists for the Cavaliers, who have fought valiantly but have not been able to find an answer for Durant.

But three-time champion LeBron said he had no reason to feel sorry for himself. I have no reason to look back at what I could have done or what I shouldn't have done or what I could have done better for the team.
