Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant committed to keeping Golden State on top

Galeno Paniagua | 17 Junio, 2017, 09:38

So it's no surprise that the sense around the Warriors is that they would decline an invitation to the White House, if invited.

Curry earned a $12.1 million salary for the 2016-2017 season, rounding out a four-year contract for $44 million he signed in 2012.

On the way to his first NBA Championship, Warriors forward Kevin Durant scored 39 points on 14-of-20 shooting, including a five-of-eight showing from three-point range, to go along with seven rebounds, five assists and one steal.

The offensive success left many wondering why the Warriors didn't run the play more often - especially with assistant coach Mike Brown telling ESPN's Zach Lowe that he prefers to run it more than Kerr.

Curry has become the posterchild for the Golden State dynasty-and we can call them that now should they capture another title with the prospect of more on the way in the years to come.

Durant won his first championship and Finals MVP award, solidifying himself as one of the greatest players in league history. A lot of people doubted Steph, saying he wasn't going to be this good. And on Thursday, they celebrate their title in the streets of downtown Oakland. With Stephen Curry, a two-time MVP, Klay Thompson and Durant at the helm, the Warriors were projected to be unstoppable - and they were.

While talking about Sara's film debut, Saif said that she should have opted for some stable career instead of going for acting. He also reminisced about the first time he understood that Sara Ali Khan made up her mind to choose a life in films.

The most vociferous response came from small forward Andre Iguodala who said, "Hell, nah!" when questioned by journalist Sam Amick from USA Today.

That brings me back to the Celtics. Letting Game 3 get away from us and then coming back to this gym, we knew it was going to be tough, but I thought our mindset was right.

Thompson reminded him he had a bad shooting night that game and respectfully asked Myers to think twice before paying him a home visit again.

Oakland recently learned it's 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.

Last summer, James signed a three-year, $100 million deal with the Cavs with a player option for the third year in 2018.

But Thursday was a rare chance to celebrate.

Ryan To Critics Of Special Counsel: 'Let Bob Mueller Do His Work'
President Donald Trump said Monday that the president is considering whether to get rid of special counsel Robert S. He expressed concern that the public is losing trust in institutions put in place to handle the investigation.

"Oakland represents all of us", Kerr told KTVU. "This is a moment we all need to enjoy together and nothing should distract from what we were able to accomplish together".

Durant's move to the team he couldn't beat will forever be criticized. Glasgow held posters of Durant.

"It's still in the Bay", he said. "No matter where they go, it's still in the Golden State".

Still, before he officially commits to Golden State for more than one year, don't tell me Durant doesn't see the elephant in the room: his legacy.

With talk of the team being an National Basketball Association power for years to come, the brothers and other kids may grow up in an era of Warriors dominance that could make this year's celebration a regular occurrence - although not one that takes place in Oakland much longer.
