And now, 29 teams will start chasing the champion Warriors

Meet the gay man who helped the Golden State Warriors win their 2nd NBA title in 3 years

Draymond Green, whose suspension last year opened the door to a Clevland comeback from a 3-1 deficit to steal the title from Golden State had clearly not forgotten that feeling from a year ago.

Before the start of the 2017 NBA Finals, the Westgate SuperBook tipped Warriors as a minus-160 favourite to win next year's championship. "Do you think it's a good thing for the National Basketball Association to build these teams how they brought in Kevin?"

A combination of head and body blows possibly dismantling this team from the current form we know it. "And I was like, OK, we left everything on the floor, and it still wasn't enough".

James teamed up with All-Stars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh on the Miami Heat to win his first championship in 2012.

While the Warriors haven't formally met to discuss whether they will visit President Donald Trump's White House as is customary for championship teams, Curry said his mind hasn't changed from when he was asked earlier this year about the possibility. 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.

But just like they were in 2015, the Warriors were too hot to handle.

Golden State finished the playoffs 16-1 when they beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 129-120 in Game 5 of the NBA Finals. "I kept building on that from day one", Durant said.

Curry hopped and shouted as he gave high-fives to the crowd after getting off a double-decker bus during the Thursday parade.

However, Iguodala assisted a Durant dunk and added one of his own off a Curry feed, reopening a double-digit lead and making the final 7:42 an extended celebration among the Oracle Arena fans. I'd be honored to welcome the team to the U.S. Capitol.

As the 2016-17 season draws to a close with Golden State's historic championship run, it's time to stamp this franchise's place in history. After the Cleveland Cavaliers lost the first two games in Oakland [sort of expected] then surprisingly lost at home in Game 3 in a close game, every National Basketball Association fan expected a sweep, even the die-hard Cavaliers fans.

The parade wound through downtown Oakland, where fans in Warriors shirts and hats cheered their favorite players.

The Warriors made one of the great playoff runs of all time.

Sometimes lost in all the chatter about a possible Warriors' dynasty is the fact that Golden State plays lovely, often unselfish team ball.

"LeBron and Kyrie, I've never seen nothing like them", Durant said.

Curry was great in helping the Warriors take a 3-0 lead in the 2017 Finals, but some of those demons came back in a rough Game 4 performance that saw him only score 14 points on 4-of-13 shooting.

Oakland is also losing one of its other beloved teams, the Raiders, to Las Vegas, and the city is still reeling from a police scandal and mourning a deadly warehouse fire.

Several media outlets, including CNBC and the New York Daily News, reported that the Warriors plan to skip the visit per a unanimous team vote.
