Will the NBA Champion Warriors Visit the White House?

Will the NBA Champion Warriors Visit the White House?

American NBA star Kevin Durant can finally call himself an NBA champion (and Finals MVP!), but did he and the Golden State Warriors purposely lose Game 4 so that they could win on home court? 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's had an unbelievable career, but he just took it to the next level", said Warriors head coach Steve Kerr. I think it's just the ignorance, the convenient ignorance.

Durant did indeed join a ready-made contender by teaming up with two-time reigning league MVP Stephen Curry on a team that won it all in 2015 and were runners-up past year after a season in which they had a record 73 wins in 82 games.

That all spells trouble for the rest of the league, who saw the Warriors capture a title in 2015, win a record-setting 73 games the next regular season before Durant moved to the Bay Area and the team became a juggernaut.

Among the other first-time National Basketball Association champions was Warriors center Zaza Pachulia, the first player from the nation of Georgia to win an National Basketball Association title.

Trump delegates troop decisions, to praise and concern
The United States now have about 8,400 troops in Afghanistan in addition to about 5,000 North Atlantic Treaty Organisation forces. Another option is to hold off on the troop numbers until the new strategy is ready, which Mattis has said would be in July.

After helping the Golden State Warriors win the 2017 NBA Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday, the 28-year-old athlete squashed his alleged (and hilarious!) beef with the "Love on the Brain" singer. He had an awesome series, just dominated.

One more note from the Finals: Jefferson was the leading scorer among the four former Jazz players, although he couldn't repeat his title-winning effort with the Cavaliers. 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".

"Brown will get all the money guaranteed him, with the amount he's paid as part of his Golden State Warriors contract being deducted, and the Cavs pay the balance", Windhorst wrote after Game 1.

Game Five wasn't all Durant; Stephen Curry scored 34 points, Iguodala added 20 off the bench, and Klay Thompson and Draymond Green scored 11 and 10 points, respectively. [It's] not to say that people aren't aware, but they just don't want to address it [because] they don't want to be attached to it so they ignore a lot of the bad things that happen. "We're going to keep you safe". But Durant is reportedly willing to take less than the max to re-sign with the Warriors. "I'm just so happy for him to be able to realise his goal and be my teammate".
