Warriors owner willing to do 'whatever it takes' to keep Stephen Curry

KD had 39 points, seven rebounds and five assists, but more importantly the Warriors were a plus-18 over his 40 minutes of play. "So, you wouldn't hold your head down, but you would be like, OK, it's just not my time". They finished one victory short of the NBA's first ideal postseason, but bounced back from their Game 4 loss to Cleveland in the NBA Finals with another high-scoring performance.

The early betting odds are already out for the 2018 National Basketball Association season, and the Golden State Warriors are already heavy favorites - less than even money.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - After a night of celebrating the Golden State Warriors latest National Basketball Association title, fans snapped up victory shirts and hats Tuesday, while Oakland crews were busy hanging championship banners along the parade route.

He will be an unrestricted free agent in 2018 but no matter where James decides to play it is unlikely he can steer clear of a Warriors team positioned for greatness.

Durant drove left, right and down the middle, knocked down 3-pointers, dished and dunked. The Warriors won a league-record 14 consecutive games during this year's playoffs and went 16-1 overall in the postseason. Is it going to be Steph, K.D., Klay?


And they're probably going to stay that way. "Pretty much all their guys are in their 20s".

Monday night's Game 5 conclusion of another Warriors-Cavaliers series rose to an average 15.3 rating among metered market households for ABC, a almost 10 percent lift from the comparable Game 5 overnight score in 2016.

After disappointing starts to the series, J.R. Smith and Tristan Thompson performed decently after the Finals returned to Cleveland.

For a little while, LeBron James will take a break.

But the Warriors look like they're on the brink of something dynastic. He won a championship, and then we were close and didn't win one.


The Cavs have LeBron under contract through the 2017-18 season. Either way, the future of James in Cleveland will once again hang over the game's greatest player. The core group will return.

"We're obviously just getting started, this is something that we want to continue to do", Curry said. And there is still all the awards that need to be handed out, like settling the Russell Westbrook versus James Harden race for MVP. Seriously. I've said this before, but he is my favorite person in all of sports, anywhere.

The Golden St Warriors have had an incredible run, but its not over.

Golden State Warriors' Kevin Durant is seen in the second quarter during Game 5 of the 2017 NBA Finals at Oracle Arena on Monday, June 12, 2017 in Oakland, Calif. He'll take his mind off the game. Or as Tyronn Lue said about the team's Game 3 loss: "When you have them beat, you have to beat them". There will be no significant upheaval to the roster during the offseason.

Durant then replied by saying, "I don't think it's fair to minimize what Kevin offers Golden State, and what they offered him, to say that it was the weakest move in National Basketball Association history".
