The Golden State Warriors dropped a 3-1 series lead in the NBA Finals a year ago to the Cleveland Cavaliers yet were considered the championship favorite going into the 2016-17 season.
The team rode buses along the parade route before players and coaches spoke to the crowd at a rally. Steve Kerr reportedly decided in November that he wouldn't accept an invitation to the White House if the Warriors won the championship, and Andre Iguodala told USA Today that the Warriors would follow the lead of Curry. "This whole day, this whole atmosphere, is unbelievable". It had a big capital "Q" on it - signifying the logo of Cleveland's Quicken Loans Arena - which spelled out the word 'Quickie, ' in reference to their five-game ousting of the Cavaliers. "I'm petty", Green said. "It definitely was a Quickie". "I'm very proud to be a part of it along with all of us", Lacob said. He's the best basketball player in the world right now, but critics like to talk about him "chasing the ghost of Michael Jordan".
Durant's decision to depart the Oklahoma CityThunder and join the Warriors was criticized by many, and the title was a bit of redemption for the long-time superstar.
"I feel as though I'm going to be back here - no question", Durant said.
If we face facts, it's obvious that Canada's only team are not going to go to the Finals while the Warriors and the Cavs exist in their current form. "Thank you for the support".

He also does a wonderful job of highlighting just how much hard work Durant put into preparing for this season, from the late night shooting sessions, to the constant stream of information and study, to keeping himself physically and mentally prepared to go.
Green addressed the super team chatter while addressing the crowd just days after Cleveland's LeBron James - who played with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami - referenced that he had never played on a super team. Curry and Thompson ended up complementing one another perfectly, are now the best back-court in the league and the greatest shooting back-court in National Basketball Association history.
They have a lot to cheer for.
The comments came just moments after Kerr gave this assessment of Green.
Carter said this season that he wants to play for two more years last season, which would mean that he's preparing for the 2017-18 season to be his last.
And assuming they do escape the Eastern Conference, would they stand any chance against the Golden State juggernaut? THREE. And after being an incompetent franchise that made awful front office moves, they were rewarded with LeBron James. "It's still in the Bay", he said.
Michael Brown, an unarmed 18-year-old, was fatally shot by a white officer, Darren Wilson, in August 2014 in Ferguson, Missouri. Yanez was also cleared of two lesser charges of endangering Castile's girlfriend Lavish Reynolds and her daughter.
The group that recruited Durant in the Hamptons that day last summer has the same philosophy about winning more championships. James teamed up with All Stars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh on the Miami Heat to win his first championship in 2012.
