Somebody give Wanda Durant a microphone.
"And so, at that locker, in that uniform, less than an hour after the most excruciating loss of his life, Green punched up Kevin Durant's number".
The "super team" lost the championship a year ago against the Cavaliers when Kevin Durant was not yet in the roster. But in reality, the road to the NBA Finals 2017 for the two teams will not be easy. Following Golden State's 2015 National Basketball Association championship, the team visited the White House in February 2016, when former president Barack Obama, an occasional golfing partner of Curry's, was still in office. Smith called Durant's deal with the devil a weak move. Charles Barkley made an over-the-phone appearance, congratulating the Warriors and their fans by telling them "I told you a jump-shooting team couldn't win a championship".
A lot has to happen, but this would be the right move for the Cavs.
What does the shirt say? Green danced onto the stage, told the crowd he'd keep it shorter and more contained than two years earlier because he was a "much more mature, more sane individual", but then went long anyway.
The 2017 National Basketball Association champion Golden State Warriors are one of the greatest rosters ever assembled, but one of their star players doesn't believe they should be considered a superteam. Join us in a conversation about world events, the newsgathering process or whatever aspect of the news universe you find interesting or important.
James is now three for five in Finals appearances. It may seem like a daunting task, but there is an answer for the Cavs this summer: Paul George.
Durant just upped the ante.
Jennings goes on to detail Durant's sometimes awkward acclimation into Golden State's locker room and culture, revealing stories that most haven't heard about Durant doing his best to fit in and be one of the team rather than Kevin Durant - egomaniacal superstar.
On paper, the Warriors appeared risky and capable of outscoring any team ever put together.
"It was good to see him", Thompson said. MVP candidate James Harden averaged a league-high 11.2 assists this season, along with 36.4 points, but without any notable help, he was unable to lead them to glory despite recording 22 regular season triple-doubles.
This is the Warriors' second championship in three years.
Cleveland made potentially one of the most unsafe win-now moves in dealing Andrew Wiggins for Love. "They want to talk about super team this, super team that". For the first time, guys like Kyle (Korver), D-Will (Deron Williams) and Flight (Derrick Williams) being a part of the Finals they never experienced before. His 39-point outburst in Game 5 was an exclamation point on an MVP-worthy performance. Much was also made about the match-ups with Kevin Love and Draymond Green, and Kyrie Irving and Steph Curry. But in a recent podcast with Bill Simmons, Durant spoke about the challenges the Warriors faced in the playoffs, specifically noting the difficulties the Jazz presented. You can make an argument for it.
Sixers will acquire No. 1 pick to draft Markelle Fultz
That's how highly I think of Fultz. "I had some stuff going on with my knee - I don't really want to address it", Fultz said. Fultz ended his freshman season averaging 23.2 points, 5.8 assists, 5.6 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.1 blocks per game.
India win toss, elect to field
But Amir's very next ball saw Kohli, aiming legside, get a leading edge to point where Shadab Khan made no mistake with the catch. He was reprieved on three, caught behind off a Bumrah no-ball, and went on to carve, slice and belt his way to a 92-ball century.

But he continued to sputter at Erin Hills, shooting a 4-over 76 on Saturday with a round that included four bogeys and a double. He needs to finish the job today. "It's been an off-week for me with the putting", said the former world number one.
