The victory marks Curry's second championship with his team in the past three years. It was behind their unselfish style of play that they were able to put together arguably the most dominant run in the playoffs in league history. "And I did that from day one, and I just tried to stay with that". "I was anxious, I was jittery". I told LeBron, 'I wanted to quit.' In the height of my career, I wanted to quit.
"Just the camaraderie, the togetherness, that's what it was about".
While the Warriors pick at the end of the first round now every year and they aren't in position for the prime picks, they have still done a tremendous job of finding value.
As a player, Kerr won five championships and was a member of the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls team led by Michael Jordan that won a then-league-record 72 games and beat the Seattle SuperSonics in the Finals.
"We make each other better and it's not about who gets the credit", Durant said. Ever since landing KD in the free agency the team had been compared as one of the greatest if not the greatest team of all time. Critics have called the Warriors a super team with the addition of Kevin Durant a year ago.
They are apparent references to James' reign as the dominant player in the National Basketball Association ending, now that Kevin Durant is on the Warriors and their team is set up to potentially win multiple championships.
Durant averaged 35 points, eight rebounds and five assists per game, but the impressive part is he did it shooting 56 percent from the field.
Curry hopped and shouted as he gave high-fives to the crowd after getting off a double-decker bus during the Thursday parade.
"With another championship", Wanda Durant said with a laugh. "You have to tip your hat to Cleveland", he added.
"I heard about how I was hopping on bandwagons, I was letting everybody else do the work, but that was far from the truth", Durant said after the Finals. "But we prevailed, we're champions and it's fantastic doing it on our home floor". "I'm just happy to be a leader on this team that can understand the goals that we set out for ourselves and try to get it done the best way we could".
"They got us where they want us", James said.
When you think of a legendary sports team, its star players obviously come to mind first.
