Over 1 million expected at Warriors parade in Oakland

"In the context of keeping the team together, if there are decisions that need to be made, we'll talk about it for sure". "This whole day, this whole atmosphere, is unbelievable".

It seems a foregone conclusion - Golden State and Cleveland duking it out anew for the Larry O'Brien Trophy. "I still feel like that today", he said. The Cavaliers play in Quicken Loans Arena. Green didn't disappoint - within minutes he dropped a word you can't say on TV. "It definitely was a Quickie".

In 2015, an estimated 500,000 fans were waiting in the streets of downtown Oakland along the parade route to cheer on their team, with some showing up as early as 3 a.m., per ESPN. Fans and critics first thought that the Warriors were going to sweep the Cavaliers in the series based on the impressive performances that Durant, Curry, Thompson, and Green were presenting throughout the first three games of the series.

Listen very carefully to what I'm about to say: Kevin Durant is the reason the Warriors are National Basketball Association champions right now. He has been among the top three best players in the league for years, and nothing he did in the final should surprise us.

Police said on Friday they were looking at possible "criminal offences" behind the fatal fire . And London Mayor Sadiq Khan joined a congregation at a church service near Grenfell Tower .

As Kevin Durant delivered his emotional speech after receiving his first NBA Finals MVP award, fans were reminded of the cinematic comparisons made between the NBA Finals and the popular film Space Jam, especially when you consider the "out-of-this-world" odds that the original NBA legend wearing jersey No. 23 faced with an ensemble of Looney Tunes by his side to form the Tune Squad.

"I remember exactly where I was this time previous year, and it wasn't a great feeling", Curry told the crowd at a rally after the parade. "Hopefully, we'll keep it going", he told the crowd. "Thank you for the support". He's expected to decline his player option and re-sign again with the Warriors, which makes sense financially.

In a much-anticipated first-round clash against the Thunder, Harden's former employers, Houston brushed Oklahoma City and Russell Westbrook - the first player in over 50 years to average a triple-double - aside 4-1, but they disappointing slumped to a 4-2 defeat to the Spurs. If you were looking for any guarantees of titles to come, the two owners provided the most noteworthy comments.

So does it really make sense for everybody else to chase the fantasy of building their own super team?

Firefighter feared Grenfell Tower would collapse like World Trade Centre
Newcastle City Council is carrying out checks on residential buildings over 18 metres high in the wake of the Grenfell Tower fire. On Friday, Mrs May visited survivors in hospital before meeting victims and community leaders at a church in Kensington.

"First of all, if everybody wanted Steph, he would have been the No. 1 pick", Durant said Wednesday of Curry, the No. 7 pick of the 2009 National Basketball Association draft. "They have raised [the benchmark] and that's now what everyone else has to get to if they want to be the last team standing".

There are several individuals among the Warriors who are not the biggest fans of Donald Trump, and beside Stephen Curry coach Steve Kerr and Andre Iguodala were the loudest. That sparked Golden State's push to sign Durant, who chose to leave his original team, the Oklahoma City Thunder. Three of the franchise's five titles have occurred since the team moved to the Bay Area from Philadelphia. "I'm sad the next parade will be in San Francisco". Corey Wong flew all the way from Hong Kong, braving a 16-hour flight, to celebrate with his team.

"It would take a massive upset, if they're not there each and every year", he said.
