Curry, Durant committed to keeping Golden State on top

The growing up of the Thunder has been one of the NBA's great stories in recent years, the Warrior's buying another championship and Kevin Durant selling out for one, is the worst story in recent years.

Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank made the comment to which Curry shot back later: "I agree with that description", Curry said, "if you remove the "et" from asset.

"I think the proof is obviously in what we were able to accomplish from that point on in the regular season, being 16-1 in the playoffs, everybody being the best version of themselves and putting all the puzzle pieces together".

Despite coming up on the losing end of The Finals for the fifth time in eight trips, James averaged a triple-double over the five games, a first for the NBA's championship series.

Beating Cleveland two out of three in the first rivalry to be featured in three consecutive finals didn't hurt the sense of drama the Warriors aroused all season. "He's had an wonderful career, but he just took it to the next level", coach Steve Kerr said.

Curry embraced Durant's arrival after the Warriors dropped last year's finals to Cleveland in seven games, an unselfish attitude that reflected Durant's desires and created an inside-outside pairing that was almost unstoppable.

Tens of millions flocked to social media in anticipation of this year's NBA Finals, the third straight year the Warriors and the Cavaliers fought for the championship.

Women's semifinals feature long shots and favorites
Simona Halep is coming off a three set win over Karolina Pliskova that took 28 games to decide. "I'm just happy. After Halep controlled the first set, Pliskova found her range on her big serve and forehand in the second.

"It's a special team, a special group", Durant said. And then when I came back, we just kept going from there.

"I can remember that conversation on my sofa, the look in his eyes", Wanda Durant said.

Meanwhile on Twitter, James, Durant and Curry were among the top names mentioned on the social network. "I'm so happy Kevin has broken through and there's more to come from him". Warriors general manager Bob Myers disputed the super-villains notion.

"But we were disciplined, we had a message everyday - it was always just about us". I'll have that mindset, KD's going to have that mindset, I know Dre, Shaun, all the guys that are up for negotiating a new contract.

"I can't believe it, but I have to", Durant said recently of where he is after a decade. For those guys in the Hamptons recruiting Durant that day and all the others, they can't wait for more. "I've been so lucky to be part of so many championship teams as a player and now as a coach, and it never gets old".

We got better when I got hurt.
