Kevin Durant named NBA Finals MVP

Warriors' Game 5 win wraps up highly-watched NBA Finals

Warriors' Game 5 win wraps up highly-watched NBA Finals

This video features five facts that will shed some light on the newest NBA Finals MVP.

The NBA's new collective bargaining agreement, which will start July 1, could help Golden State keep its superteam together for the next six years, according to SB Nation's Tom Ziller. "They're assembled as good as you can assemble, and I played against some really, really good teams that was assembled perfectly, and they're right up there".

The Finals MVP averaged 35.2 points, 8.4 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 1.6 blocks, and 1 steal over the course of the five-game series.

The Lakers certainly qualified as a "super team" with Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and James Worthy and a strong supporting cast.

- LeBron James became the first player ever to average a triple-double in the NBA Finals.

"They're going to be here for a while..."

The Lakers now seem to have a better chance to have more cap space given that president of basketball operations Magic Johnson has spoken numerous times about saving cap space for 2018, while the Clippers might have to commit big money to Paul, Blake Griffin and J.J.

Dismissing haters is not such a big deal to Durant as they might imagine.

James can hardly leave a game for fear of his team falling apart while he rests.

One year after completing possibly the greatest comeback in NBA history by coming back from down 3-1 to defeat the 73-win Golden State Warriors, the #Cleveland Cavaliers were defeated 4-1 in this year's NBA Finals.

The announcement comes after the council began a review over the weekend of its housing blocks. We will be writing to residents living in these properties directly to offer reassurance.

But James did not want to weigh into the discussion about whether the necessary pieces needed to build a true challenger to the Warriors are out there. 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. The Golden State Warriors are arguably going to be regarded as having the best playoff run of all time after barely surrendering one game to a star-studded Lebron James team.

The truth will likely be that James gives little thought to his future as the season unfolds, then gauges the competitiveness of the Cavs and what his personal goals and interests are at that time. King James has made it to the Finals seven straight seasons, making him (and James Jones, of course) the only two players in National Basketball Association history not on the '60s Celtics to make the Finals that many times in a row.

"I just try to put in the work", James said.

". All I know is I personally will do the right thing for me".
