Curry's comment came two days after Golden State defeated Cleveland 129-120 to wrap up their series in five games and earn their second National Basketball Association championship in three years.

"We're going down as one of the best teams ever and that's a special thing you can not take away from us", Warriors reserve Andre Iguodala said. Curry had been saving the cigar since last year's finals.

Kevin Durant's 28.8-point playoff career scoring average ranks fourth all-time, trailing only Michael Jordan, Allen Iverson and Jerry West and ranking just ahead of LeBron James at 28.4.

Yet the two-time reigning MVP and new NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant said Wednesday they would consider taking less money to keep the core of the champion Golden State Warriors intact.

"The way he embraced the opportunity in the finals was unbelievable", he added. “But obviously as a team were going to have a conversation.

Monday night's Game 5 conclusion of another Warriors-Cavaliers series rose to an average 15.3 rating among metered market households for ABC, a almost 10 percent lift from the comparable Game 5 overnight score in 2016. We were the most disciplined team all year, we preached teamwork and togetherness all season, and it's hard to do that with a bunch of egos in the league, and we peaked at the flawless time. "The backstory to this is, after Game 7 last year, I told one of my close friends to save this for a year from now", Curry said.

No team had a winning record against Golden State this season - five were.500 against the Warriors - and 16 of the 29 other teams in the league didn't beat them even once. In his lone season with the team, Durant said it's the selflessness that stands out to him. "Guys like Steph Curry welcoming him and kind of let him shine, it worked out like it should".

"As long as they stay healthy and stay together, this team could be a dominant force over the next five or six years, without question", Barry said. "Proving haters wrong, that's cool for me to talk about on Instagram or Twitter". "I think it's important, but it's also important for the players because it's really about them to make the decision whether they want to go or not".

For the second time in three years, the Cavaliers fell short of their goal of an NBA Championship against the Warriors, but despite Golden State having a younger roster with players in their primes, small forward LeBron James knows Cleveland will continue shaping the roster with the goal of competing for a title.

James should know better than most. "It was just a proud moment, something that you never, ever forget".
