Durant fulfills destiny with National Basketball Association title win

On 4 July, Kevin Durant - a former league MVP, an all-time great scorer, and 2016's hottest free agent target - left Oklahoma City Thunder to join Golden State.

In Game 5, Kerr shortened his rotation.

Just three days after his team fell to the Golden State Warriors in Game 5 of the NBA Finals, LeBron James is back in the weight room. LeBron, it seems, has finally shaved his head.

This was Durant's second Finals appearance. And in these Finals, it was well-earned.

After the blue and gold confetti rained down on the court, the NBA didn't waste any time to start selling commemorative 2017 NBA Finals gear.

Now, Smith used the ESPN platform to revisit those comments thanks to Durant's mother, Wanda. "I was anxious, I was jittery".

They beat us tonight. But I've gotta tip my hat to Cleveland. "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. Durant, Curry, Kyrie Erving and James.

On the way to his first NBA Championship, Durant scored 39 points on 14-of-20 shooting, including a five-of-eight performance from three-point range, to go along with seven rebounds, five assists and one steal. Superstars want to team up with one another to chase titles, and they're getting the results they're seeking. You could feel the nervousness circling the building.

GOP lawmaker Scalise still critical though doctors 'encouraged'
The round fragmented into hundreds of pieces and did "substantial damage" to bones, internal organs and blood vessels, Sava said . Mr Scalise was shot in the hip when a lone gunman descended on the baseball practice in a Washington , DC suburb on Wednesday .

"We're going to do whatever it takes to keep Steph here and happy", Warriors co-owner Joe Lacob told The Mercury News. And if Hart were smart, he won't bet against Durant and the Golden State Warriors any time soon.

Green wore a t-shirt at Thursday's championship parade and rally in Oakland, California that read, "Quickie", with the "Q" styled to mimic the Cavaliers arena, which is referred to as The Q. Green told NBC Bay Area the shirt reflected the Warriors quick win over the Cavaliers.

Kyrie Irving followed up his 40-point gem in Game 4 with 26 points but shot 9 for 22.

No, these Warriors didn't win 73 regular season games like last year's squad; they merely "settled" for 67, still the best record in the league and one of the most impressive regular season outings in history.

In the case of the Cavaliers, there is no magic wand they can wave to miraculously add the missing pieces needed to inch closer to the Warriors. And though the Cavaliers crawled and LeBron played unbelievably, they were helpless to Durant's lethal efficiency in the game's biggest moments, impossible to contain him amid the other stars the Warriors already had.

Curry, who is signed with Under Armour through 2024, made comments critical of President Trump in February, after Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank called Trump an "asset" to the country. "These guys are so gifted and so committed and so unselfish".

Kerr said he was proud that the team "came back from the heartbreak of previous year".
