Oakland triumphant as parade celebrates NBA-champion Warriors

Oakland triumphant as parade celebrates NBA-champion Warriors

"I spent all day yesterday on the phone with countless people at Under Armour, countless people in Kevin Plank's camp, my team, trying to understand what was going on and where everybody stood on the issue", Curry said at the time.

Then 2017 Finals MVP Durant signs a deal that maintains the ear-to-ear grin he's been wearing since Monday night.

Andre Iguodala will get offered a new contract, maybe not at his current $11.13 million rate but something respectable for the Warriors sixth man; he'll get a new deal. The Vets like Zaza Pachulia and David West will be asked to come back. Critics have called the Warriors a super team with the addition of Kevin Durant a year ago.

In short, the core of the Warriors will be back - that's a pretty safe bet. Nobody wanted him. A lot of people didn't expect these guys to be where they are today.

"You can talk about whatever happens on the outside", Durant said, "but inside those lines, I come to bring it every day".

"What we've built here is truly special, unique, something you don't want to see end at all", Curry said.

And it came a year after an epic disappointment when the team blew a 3-1 lead against those same Cavaliers despite the best regular season in National Basketball Association history. "Now you've won two".

Other teams, like the Seattle Seahawks and Chicago Cubs, have embraced mindfulness in recent years. Mills, 28, says the NBA's new benchmark team deserve a lot of credit for their record-breaking campaign. The usual suspects - the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers - will tussle for the fourth time with missions of their own.

Kevin Kline picked up his third Tony Award for his portrayal of a preening actor in a revival of Noel Coward's Present Laughter . Midler's co-star Gavin Creel won the Tony for Best Featured Actor in a Musical, as well.

Obviously, the Warriors have both movement and elite talent, which is why they're the prohibitive favorites for the next few years. If he is willing to take a slight cut - say $4 million from the than the $35.4 million he's eligible to be paid next season, the Warriors will then have the space to keep their rights to Iguodala and Livingston. The Wizards have one or two more seasons to build their victor.

And if the past two years are any indication, there may be more parades in Oakland's future yet. The transportation planner bought his tickets a year ago, anticipating a Warriors title and researching when the last parade was and how quickly he thought the Warriors would beat the Cavs. The Warriors will gun for third win on their epic Finals series with Cavs, and the latter will attempt to equalize.

But for some teams, there is a harsh reality that no matter how much they do, they won't be there. The Phoenix Suns could be one of those teams too.

As Kerr said, most of the time, he'd prefer the Warriors run plays with more passing and screening to get everyone involved and scramble the defense. Those teams have to decide to double down on what they have or sell it off for pennies on the dollar.

They would have to win four games in a row or their season would be over.

". All I know is I personally will do the right thing for me". And as we have reported in the past, studies have even linked mindfulness to concrete improvements on the basketball court, such as better defense and a higher free throw percentage. He described himself as a Warriors fan since elementary school. As of around 12:30 p.m., BART had recorded almost 242,000 exits from their stations, roughly the same as in 2015, when the Dubs broke their decades-long drought and clinched the title for the first time in 40 years.

Golden State Warriors fans are waking up early to secure a spot along the team's parade route in Oakland, California. "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".
