Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant look to build a Warriors dynasty

The Warriors are poised to dominate the league over the next several years, especially if Kevin Durant agrees to take less money to keep the team together.

To win his first championship Durant had to go through the game's greatest player in Cavaliers forward LeBron James, who he defended for most of the five games.

But first, Durant embraced another special someone too.

In our opinion, fully deserved.

"I ain't got nothing left to say", he said, flashing his trophy.

- Kevin Durant became just the sixth player to score 30+ points in every game in a NBA Finals series, after Elgin Baylor, Ricky Barry, Michael Jordan, Hakeem Olajuwon and Shaquille O'Neal (twice).

In the decisive match, he scored 39 points along with the astonishing shooting percentage 14 of 20 in 40 minutes on the floor.

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver sees no problem with the construction of the Golden State Warriors and said his goal as commissioner is to help make ways for teams to catch up to the newly crowned champions.

At the time, Durant called the leadup to his decision the most challenging few weeks of his National Basketball Association career, and even said it was not about winning titles but about personal growth and quality-of-life choices.

LeBron James and Kyrie Irving tried their best to extend the series.

This time everything was flawless for KD. And I'm like, 'Bro, we're about to win the title'.

Durant said he wants his faith and humility to guide his life.

"They're going to be the highest favorite we've ever had going into a season, any team in any sport", Jeff Sherman, NBA oddsmaker at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, told ESPN.

His Herculean effort was never more evident than in the first half of Game 2, when LeBron went Super Saiyan and basically chose to drive the ball and get his points no matter who was guarding him.

On NBC, the season premiere of "American Ninja Warrior" averaged a 1.4 rating in the 18-49 demo from 8-10 p.m., down 18% from last year's premiere, and 5.4 million viewers. "So for us to be able to do it in front of our home crowd, something I'll remember for a very long time". We weren't supposed to be here.

"Is that why you kept pushing him so hard?" You put clothes on our backs, food on the table. You sacrificed for us.

Durant was baptized at Hillsong New York City in 2013, but he said his faith journey started when he was 16.

This story is more than sports. Do you think this was a more powerful reaction than in 2015?
