Kevin Durant's non-foul on LeBron James looms large in Warriors' run

This isn't the first time Durant has sent some love Rihanna's way.

They beat us tonight.

"To go up against somebody I view as like a rival, personally, is an wonderful feeling to beat him", Durant claimed.

"No, I don't think that, not one time I felt like we were overmatched until probably like the last 1:20 and we were down 13 or something like that at that point".

Kerr was hired as the Warriors' coach on May 19, 2014 and guided the team to a 67-15 regular-season record and an National Basketball Association championship in 2014-15.

"I had a letdown past year", Green said. But the win won't really change the minds of people who believe Durant took the easy route to a championship by joining the already-stacked Golden State Warriors.

You can add the makers of Jeopardy! to Durant's growing list of critics. ". Getting that first championship for me was like having my first son". "That's when you see how precious these moments are".

"The toughest challenge was to come in here and see how I can help this team get better", Durant said.

So when you have them beat, you have to beat them.

On Monday night at Oracle Arena, Durant had 39 points-the difference-maker in the Finals as teammate Draymond Green had predicted-and walked off as Finals MVP.

A year ago, these Warriors fell short after a record-setting season that included a 24-0 start and 73 victories at the end to break the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls' wins mark. Early in the second half, the Cavaliers managed to narrow the Warriors lead, but were never able to draw level.

As LeBron told Kyrie Irving after the Finals ended on Monday, the Cavaliers will likely try to become champions again next season.

"I couldn't sleep for two days", Durant said. "I was anxious. I was jittery". "I have no reason to look back at what I could have done or what I shouldn't have done or what I could have done better for the team".

"We battled. But we did it. So for us to be able to do it in front of our home crowd, something I'll remember for a very long time".

"I'm just happy for him".

"A lot of guys cried because they wanted it bad", Lue reported of the postgame scene in the Cleveland locker room. Then it was Golden State's time again, with Durant as the prized addition.

"We did it", Durant said to his mom, the only person in the world he listens. But you don't concern me.
