Warriors fans celebrate National Basketball Association title with rowdy street party

Kevin Durant Warriors join Bulls, Lakers, Celtics on list of NBA's greats

And they could thank Kevin Durant for that.

"I don't believe I've played for a super team", LeBron said after his Game 5 loss.

Kevin Durant capped his spectacular first season with the Warriors by bringing home that coveted National Basketball Association championship he joined Golden State in July so determined to get, scoring 39 points in a fast-and-furious, Finals-clinching 129-120 victory over LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday night.

"Love you, girl, but I got to do it", Durant told USA TODAY Sports as he clutched the MVP trophy.

"Everybody for the last 10 years knew how good he was but until you break through and win that first championship there's still something there".

"We were able to hit the switch, but those games in January, November, games people think aren't important, they're important to me and they would have been important to our ball club".

Green had sat out Game 5 of the Finals a year ago, suspended because of flagrant-foul point accumulation.

Durant averaged 35 points, eight rebounds and five assists per game, but the impressive part is he did it shooting 56 percent from the field.

Durant picked up two fouls in the first quarter while the officiating crew tried to eliminate some of the physical play that was apparent in Game 4. The streak continued as he scored 30 points in game 3 and went 6-11 from beyond the arc.

Despite Durant's impact in The Finals, Lue is confident in the Cavaliers' abilities to contend again in the future.

"It's hard to compare to what that feeling was the first time, but it's pretty darn close", Curry said. They stepped up. The entire season they were great.

"I'm not happy he won his first".

"The toughest challenge was to come in here and see how I can help my teammates get better - that was more important to me than anything", said Durant. "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".

"I have no reason to put my head down", James said. Just a proud moment, something you'll never forget.

"I left everything on the floor every game, all five games", he said.

History will always note that Durant's first championship came against James.

"It's fueling me inside right now", he added.

But a stone-faced LeBron James refused to be drawn on his plans. So I probably will be back in the my gym in the next couple days just because it's just who I am.
