Kyrie Irving Reveals Special Bond With LeBron James In Inspiring Tribute

The Golden State monster that devoured the Cavaliers in five Finals games, culminating with a 129-120 victory Monday, is not going into hibernation.

The Golden State Warriors beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 129-120 to win their second National Basketball Association championship in three seasons and cap a near-perfect run through the playoffs.

"It would have been great to see us at a full unit throughout the whole season so we can continue to build and build the camaraderie and build the chemistry out on the floor so you don't have to wait until April to see what you're capable of doing", LeBron said. "It was unbelievable to just see that all year, and right now just to be here with these guys, it's wonderful".

After averaging a triple-double over the five games, James knew there was little more he or his teammates could have done to beat a Golden State Warriors team that proved too talented this year with the addition of Finals MVP Durant.

He has in effect taken the reigns from Kevin Durant as the most accomplished, still-got-game talent in the National Basketball Association without an National Basketball Association title to list of accomplishments. "I'm just so happy to be a part of it". I came in and tried to help my team ... be aggressive and sacrifice.

Myers realizes adding Durant might not have worked so well with anyone but the Warriors.

The win spelled redemption for the Warriors, who brought forward Kevin Durant over from the Oklahoma City Thunder last offseason to bolster their already high-powered offense. "Some teams wouldn't embrace a guy who came into a situation like ours. Guys like Steph Curry welcoming him and kind of let him shine, it worked out like it should". But such comments made the moment of triumph only sweeter. When asked about his future in the league, he said: "For me personally - I don't know". "We all carry weight".

"We have grown closer and closer as the year's gone on and as the playoffs have started, and he's - we're always encouraging each other", Durant said. "And I'm like, 'Bro, we're about to win this title'".

He hugged mother Wanda many a time. "Tonight it did for him". Because they don't own Durant's Bird Rights, the team would have to create cap space to sign him to a deal worth a max of about $35 million.

"I got nothing but love and respect for him and I can't wait to compete against him again next season", he said. "Proving haters wrong, that's cool for me to talk about on Instagram or Twitter". He is only 28 years old. So I probably will be back in the my gym in the next couple days just because it's just who I am. I put in work, I just had to trust in it.

"I don't believe I've played for a super team", James said. The Duke product averaged a career-high 25.2 points per game this season, and James' guidance both on and off the court was a big reason why.
