Cavaliers return to Cleveland after NBA Finals

TV Ratings: Most-Watched NBA Finals Since 1998 Finish Strong

The Golden State Warriors said they have not yet made a decision whether to visit the White House to celebrate their 2017 NBA Championship win.

Finals most valuable player Kevin Durant, celebrating his first National Basketball Association title, waved to fans and point guard Steph Curry held aloft the Larry O'Brien trophy as the vehicles filled with team and staff rolled through throngs of cheering fans.

Less than 24 hours after winning their second NBA Title in three years against the Cleveland Cavaliers - at least two members of the Golden State Warriors ahve gone on record to state they would not be visiting President Donald Trump at the White House.

Golden State beat Cleveland in the 2015 Finals only to lose to them past year, squandering a 3-1 series lead.

Kerr still found time to crack a joke on the stage afterward: "Well, we had very little talent, actually, it was mostly coaching".

Golden State went 67-15 this season in locking up the top seed in the Western Conference.

Earlier in the day, the Uttarakhand Government has imposed Section 144 in Dehradun's Clock Tower and nearby area. From Fakhar Zaman to Hassan Ali and Shadab Khan , Pakistan has shown the world its rich talent and pedigree.


He walked away from a city, shoot, an entire state that treasured him, and a franchise committed and close to winning a title, to join an all-star team nearly guaranteed a championship. "If you want to win, it doesn't matter". "You don't want anybody to have to sacrifice in that sense, you don't want to force anybody to take that approach but at the end of the day we know what's best for us as a group going forward".

"Somebody asked me about it a couple months ago, like a hypothetical, if a championship were to happen what I'd do and I think I answered 'I wouldn't go, '" he said.

But assembling great players has never been a guarantee of instant success as too many star players can sometimes create issues with how the ball should get distributed.

One moment late Monday captured the camaraderie that evolved.

The two playmakers were dynamic at times, but Cleveland's lack of depth ultimately sunk their attempt to repeat as champions. Along the way, it will be hard to retain key role players like Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston. They learned from each other every step of the way, they pushed one another through fierce shooting competitions that were pure entertainment on a practice floor.

"I played against some really, really good teams that were assembled perfectly, and they're right up there".
