While it was a huge win for the Warriors - it's the franchise's fifth championship win and second since 1975 - it was arguably an even more meaningful win for Nike athlete and Finals MVP Kevin Durant. "We want to keep this thing together and see how we can continue to keep getting better".
"I do know me and KD had a conversation along with Draymond and Klay and Andre a year ago before he even showed up that that was kind of the identity of who we are as a team that we understand how important it is, the guys that are here", Curry said.
"In the record books, there have very few players who have ever done that in the history of the game. and it wasn't just that", Barry said a day after Golden State won its second title in three years.
The series, the first that matched the same teams in three straight Finals, averaged 20.4 million viewers, Nielsen said Tuesday. LeBron James and the Cavaliers put up a fight against the Warriors as James became the first player ever to average a triple double in the Finals.
"There were many nights that I didn't know how we were going to make it", said Wanda Durant.
But Durant was quick to congratulate last year's champions.

New York's PIX 11 news reports the bus hit at least six cars and caused thousands of dollars in damage. The bus then rolled backward down the street, smashing into 10 parked cars before striking a church.
These are the first Finals where four players averaged scoring 25 points per game. 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. After all, the teams collectively wrote the rules of the game the Warriors are playing so well.
"I left everything on the floor every game, all five games", he said. We kept the lead at 6, 8 points, or the deficit. But consider: Draymond Green placed a call to Kevin Durant in the parking lot of Oracle Arena in the immediate aftermath of last year's Game 7 loss. Add it all up, it was not the greatest officiating performance, but in time, we'll probably forget about.
This is the Warriors' fifth National Basketball Association title in franchise history and its second in three years.
When James left his Miami Heat team to sign with the Cavilers again in 2014, he was joining another team that analysts felt would go on to subsequently win a championship, which they did in 2016.
"I'm just happy for him".
