Spurs never enjoyed big Finals ratings like Warriors-Cavs

"It's a team sport", Durant insisted after the Warriors had closed out James and the Cleveland Cavaliers 129-120 in Game 5 of the NBA Finals to win the best-of-seven series 4-1.

It's the first championship for Durant, who made it to the Finals just one other time, where he lost to LeBron James and the Miami Heat.

After rocking the NBA a year ago 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.

"You ask anybody in their walk of faith - it's all about finding accountability partners and finding people that can encourage you in your walk", he said. But the statistic most will point to after Cleveland's loss to Golden State is James' 3-5 record record in the Finals.

The Fed also said it expects to begin reducing its balance sheet this year "provided the economy evolves broadly as anticipated". Fed officials warned that keeping rates too low, for too long, could limit the bank's ability to respond to a financial crisis.

UPS says employee shoots, injures 4 at San Francisco center
ABC 7's Dan Noyes reports on the shooter's name via a fellow UPS worker, who further told him that Lam "had it out for a manager". Victims were taken to the Priscilla Chan and Mark Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, spokesman Brent Andrew said.

"I wanted him to hear me say it", Wanda Durant shared. "So a championship is just a cherry on top", he added.

Everybody for the last 10 years knew how good he was, but until you break through and win that first championship, there's always still something there. "You the real MVP". The opportunity to lead true dynasties don't come along frequently for players; the chance of another opportunity being more enticing than the one the Warriors present may not really exist. 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. "I just have to continue to be the person I am and also grow along the way". "I thought we played well, got better each game, but against good teams, you can't give away games like Game 3 at home, and then, expect to come here and win in a hostile environment". "Proving haters wrong, that's cool for me to talk about on Instagram or Twitter". However, those odds increased to minus-200 after Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry & Co. ran roughshod over the Cavs en route a historic 16-1 run in the 2017 NBA Playoffs. 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.

To win his first championship Durant had to go through the game's greatest player in Cavaliers forward LeBron James, who he defended for most of the five games. It is obvious that this year's roster can not compete with the Warriors [VIDEO] as the team depends a lot on LeBron. "He's had an incredible career, but he just took it to the next level", coach Steve Kerr said.
