"I remember exactly where I was this time previous year, and it wasn't a great feeling", Curry told the crowd at a rally after the parade. Their eventual point differential over the 17-game post season run was a scintillating +13.53, second only in history to Milwaukee Bucks in 1971. The Warriors shifted the way the game was played, but as is the business of trailblazing, sometimes you get blazed yourself.
What made them great: Just missed following through on Malone's "Fo', fo', fo'" vow while delivering Erving's long-awaited first National Basketball Association championship. It is a business. "So we will see, but I will get away from the game a little bit". The statement added the organization would make those decisions when and if necessary.
Two days after capturing the franchise's second title in three years against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Warriors prepared to part ways for what will be a busy offseason for general manager Bob Myers and the front office.
After the Warriors defeated the Cavs on Monday evening, Lee Jenkins wrote about the significant exchange Green had with Durant a year ago. Former Finals MVP Andre Iguodala, Shaun Livingston, Zaza Pachulia, David West and Ian Clark all stepped up to support Golden State's play-off motto of "strength in numbers". "I came in and tried to help my team. It looks like it was easy, but guys like Steph Curry welcoming him and kind of let him shine - it worked out like it should", Myers said. That's a realistic thing to say though, right? If I could bottle the feeling I had on Monday night and sell it, no one would ever have a bad day again. Their core of Durant, Green, Stephen Curry, and Klay Thompson seems to be in place for the near future.
"Obviously, as a team, we're going to have a conversation", Curry continued. Come on-you know King James better than that. "I don't believe we're a super team here".
"I'm just excited to do something special", Curry said during the presentation of the Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy on Monday in Oakland after his team beat the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals. Several members of the team, including head coach Steve Kerr, have condemned Trump since he was elected president in November.
"I still feel like that today". "And we are going to move forward with that when we have a chance to". "This is a moment we all need to enjoy together", he said. We struggled at first, then, as a smart team does, that plays together, that's unpredictable out there, they figured it out, and when I was hurt, they took it to another level.
Presidents have hosted world champion sports teams for decades, but the tradition has become a hot-button topic for athletes in recent years.
