Never Played For A Super Team? Twitter Roasts LeBron's Post Game Comment

"We make each other better and it's not about who gets the credit", Durant said.

Kevin Durant of the Golden State Warriors was named the NBA Finals MVP for 2017 on Tuesday.

"I can't believe we're getting this question already, but you know, honestly that's something we'll worry about at the time".

After coming out to a flawless 15-0 in post season, the Warriors dropped game 4 in Cleveland against the Cavaliers and finished off the series Monday night in Oakland with a 129-120 win.

Looking back on this season, people will forget that before The Finals, LeBron and company were 12-1 in the postseason.

But Durant was quick to congratulate last year's champions. He scored 41 points in game five and averaged a triple-double for the Finals.

Overall, the Warriors are 207-39 during Kerr's tenure as coach. That's something I talked about coming into the league, wanting to do it year in and year out. "We'll see how long".

The Warriors would have made the NBA Finals this season without the services of Durant. How does he not compromise the squad needed to fight past rivals to reach the finals?

"The last couple of days I've thought about it", he said.

Kyrie Irving added: "We understand how special that team is down there".

"That's what Andre's been doing all year". After the Game 5 loss in the 2017 NBA Finals, he stated that he was never a part of a superteam. The different kind of ceremonies and traditions that have happened around championship winning teams, we don't want that to taint what we've accomplished this year. It's such unselfish nature that has helped the Warriors flourish.

"We're gonna party", said Oakland resident Achebe Thomas, while celebrating the win. "That's the culture that we built and it's an incredible thing to see".

This is a mantra that Silver has been sticking with since the Warriors first signed Kevin Durant away from the Thunder.

Curry and Durant also heard from former President Barack Obama with congratulations, though Durant said he was most excited that among 200 messages was a text from a high school girlfriend he didn't realize still had his number. "But then all of a sudden you're faced with the reality that the man who's gonna lead you has routinely used racist, misogynist, insulting words".
