Golden State Warriors parade set for Thursday in Oakland

Overall, the Warriors are 207-39 during Kerr's tenure as coach. The Cavaliers brought their A-game in Game 3, which they could have won if not for an open missed corner 3-pointer by Kyle Korver and Durant's heroics.

He was the first player since Shaquille O'Neal in 2000 to score 30 or more points in five-straight finals games.

"It was about damn time, for all of us to really see what playing well as a group looks like against a great team like the Warriors", he said. "And I did that from day one, and I just tried to stay with that".

It makes the latest crown much different than the 2015 title, the first in 40 years for the club and in the careers of most of the players.

"I mean, come on, you got a bunch of guys who are talented and can shoot and pass and dribble, and they're unselfish", Kerr said. Even with all their talent it wasn't easy, as Boston needed seven games to beat Philadelphia in the Eastern Division finals and then seven more in the NBA Finals - the last going to overtime-to beat Los Angeles.

"Experience is the best teacher in life, and he's just experiencing and experiencing and experiencing", said James. Back in February, guard Shaun Livingston was asked about visiting the White House, but he told a local radio station, "I definitely wouldn't go". Unlike last season, there will be no jokes about blowing a 3-1 lead; the Warriors took care of business in championship fashion.

Durant shot 14 for 20 and Curry - the two-time reigning MVP who took a backseat as the new big star got acclimated - finished off a brilliant postseason. The 7-foot (2.13 m) small forward and 2017 Finals MVP has said that after his controversial decision leave the Oklahoma City Thunder and join the Warriors last offseason, he is not eager to move again. "I'm so happy Kevin has broken through and there's more to come from him".
