Kevin Durant Received Text from Former President Barack Obama After Finals Win


Durant and the Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers, 129-120, in Game Five, winning the series 4-1.

"I mean, come on, you got a bunch of guys who are talented and can shoot and pass and dribble, and they're unselfish", Kerr said.

General Manager Bob Myers, who helped assemble the Warriors lineup after the franchise spent years as the league's laughing stock, and savvy owner Joe Lacob fill out the rest of the team.

There seems to be a question about whether the newly minted NBA Champion Golden State Warriors would decline a visit to the White House. The Warriors just wrapped up their second championship in three years and were one win away last year from three-peating.

The Warriors are now in line to form a dynasty.

"I couldn't sleep for two days", Durant, who was named the Finals MVP, said during an on-court interview. In making his point, he directed attention to the organization's drafting prowess and recruiting targets rather than just focusing on the fact that the team has four All-Stars in himself, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.

"I did not want to go back to Cleveland (for Game 6) and deal with that again".

Some would argue that Kevin Durant took James's super team strategy when the superstar forward left his initial National Basketball Association squad, the Oklahoma City Thunder and signed with Steph Curry and Klay Thompson's stacked Golden State Warriors team. "I put in the work individually, in the film room, in my mind, my body every, single day to prepare myself for whatever obstacle that this ball club entails". So, sorry I went on a little rant, but that's how I feel about the team. "That's the plan, so I just got to keep pushing forward". What will often be brought up when talking about James is his record in The Finals. He also scored 30 or more points in each game while shooting better 53 percent in all, but one contest.
