Golden State Warriors parade set for Thursday in Oakland

Golden State Warriors parade set for Thursday in Oakland

The Warriors, powered by 39 points from Kevin Durant and 34 from Stephen Curry, beat defending champions Cleveland Cavaliers 129-120 Monday to win the best-of-seven NBA Finals four games to one, avenging their loss to the Cavaliers in last year's final. He was given the Bill Russell trophy by Bill Russell himself.

Kevin Durant #35 of the Golden State Warriors reacts after a basket against the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 5 of the 2017 NBA Finals at ORACLE Arena on June 12, 2017 in Oakland, California.

A dramatic end to a dramatic series, but one that the Warriors and their fans can be proud of.

Monday night's episode of Jeopardy!, which was nearly certainly pre-recorded weeks or even months ago, ended up being well-timed for the Warriors' Game 5 win to become the 2017 NBA Champions.

After making the hard decision to leave his National Basketball Association home in Oklahoma City to join the team that eliminated the Thunder team he lead in the 2015-16 season, Durant received criticism on all fronts.

On his own team's efforts, he added: "We got to the post-season as a 2-seed and we were able to punch our clock and reach the finals, that's what you want as a ball-club".

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer immediately praised the deal, urging the House to also pass it quickly. It would affect "key sectors of Russia's economy, including mining, metals, shipping and railways".


The parade, celebrating the Warriors' 4-1 NBA Finals victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers, will start at 10 a.m. Thursday at Broadway and 11th Street, team officials said. "No", he added. "But like I've always told myself, if you put in the work and you leave it on the floor, then you can always push forward and not look backwards".

But seriously, we're all here for Curry and Durant's bromance.

Durant was named finals MVP after scoring over 30 points in each of the five games - he averaged 35.2 per game across the series. "I'm just so happy to be a part of it". When it was over, James went straight to congratulate Durant, who got revenge for losing the title with Oklahoma City to James' Miami Heat five years ago. "It's different just because of what happened previous year". Cleveland enjoyed a 41-33 lead in the second quarter Monday before the Warriors ripped off a 28-4 run. Head coach Tyronn Lue said he "broke down" and couldn't even finish his speech in the locker room.

Green was determined to be there for his team in Game 5 this time around.

Golden State's near-perfect post-season run - they finished the playoffs with a remarkable 16-1 record - will go down as one of the best playoff performances in National Basketball Association - no - sports history.
