Oakland triumphant as parade set to celebrate NBA's Warriors

NBA Free Agency Rumors: League sources consider LeBron James 'likely' to leave Cavaliers for Lakers or Clippers in The Cavaliers would do anything to be down 3-1 again

The Warriors prevailed with a score of 129-120 at Oracle Arena in Oakland, California, bringing the Larry O'Brien Trophy back to the Bay Area for the second time in three years.

Last year, the newly crowned Cleveland Cavaliers stopped for a few hours in Las Vegas to party on the way home to Northeast Ohio after winning the title in Oakland. For the third year in a row, they were facing the Golden State Warriors.

It is a tradition in the United States that professional sports teams visit the White House as the Chicago Cubs did in January when they spent time with President Barack Obama after capturing their 2016 Major League Baseball title.

Instead of working together and trying to resolve all challenging situations, Stephen Curry and the Warriors would just add one more problem to the whole situation.

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.

The actress's mother Debbie Reynolds , who won moviegoers' hearts as a star of " Singin' in the Rain ", died the day after Fisher. He told Associated Press: "I would tell you, from my perspective, that there's certainly no news that Carrie did drugs".

Finals MVP Kevin Durant declined to say whether or not he would accept an invitation to the White House. But speculation has centered whether the Warriors would refuse a meeting with Trump.

"I remember exactly where I was this time a year ago, and it wasn't a great feeling", Curry told the crowd at a rally after the parade. But obviously as a team we're going to have a conversation.

Come on. It's to the point now where someone will argue that the All-Star teams aren't super teams because Jimmy Butler and Kawhi Leonard weren't lottery picks.

The defending World Series champion Chicago Cubs chose to visit the White House in January to celebrate their historic 2016 title with former IL senator and outgoing President Barack Obama before he left office. Usually Durant lets these criticisms from random people on Twitter go unanswered, but dude was in celebration mode on Thursday during Golden State's championship parade, so he made a decision to fire back.

"Give everyone credit. We didn't have a No. 1 (overall) draft pick", Green said, his words clearly directed toward James.
