A parade to celebrate the Golden State Warriors' second National Basketball Association title in three years is underway in downtown Oakland. "So you don't know what's going to happen".
It was an unprecedented third consecutive meeting between the clubs in the finals and both appear ready to continue their domination of conference rivals on the way to an annual showdown for the crown.
Anyone hoping to reach the Warriors parade and events at Lake Merritt in Oakland is asked to take public transportation to Jack London Square Stateion in Oakland and walk 15 minutes to the parade. They signed Klay Thompson and Draymond Green to extensions and were still able afford to bring in free agent Kevin Durant for more than $26 million this season.
Durant's non-foul looms large in Warriors' game-deciding run
With the off-season acquisition of Durant, the Warriors, arguably, have the NBA's best collection of players in recent decades. He scored 30 or more points in six of the last seven games , including the last five.
No decision has been made yet over whether the NBA Finals champion Golden State Warriors will visit President Donald Trump at the White House, a team statement reads. Whether or not the Warriors will join those teams remains to be seen.
In addition, LeBron became the first league MVP to lose five Final series (3-5) in his career. But now, it appears that Danny Ainge and the C's will need to find a way to beat him and the rest of the Warriors in the NBA Finals.
The Warriors" "super team' were enacting revenge on LeBron James and the Cavaliers after losing to them in the 2016 Finals. He picked it up in game 2 when he shot 8 of 12 and scored 22 points. But speculation has centered whether the Warriors would refuse a meeting with Trump.
Durant came back late in the regular season from a 19-game absence with a left knee injury, then dealt with a tender calf early in the playoffs. It's such unselfish nature that has helped the Warriors flourish. "That's the culture that we built and it's an unbelievable thing to see". In his lone season with the team, Durant said it's the selflessness that stands out to him.
