Rather, Durant credited draft choices and team chemistry for Golden State's superb 2016-17 season, in which the team won 67 games before cruising to a title with a 16-1 playoff record.
The Warriors went 15-1 in this year's postseason, with sweeps in the first three rounds before beating LeBron James and the Cavaliers in five games in the Finals. Superteam? No, we just work extremely well together. "He had an unbelievable series, just dominated".
Were those teams as super as this year's Warriors?
And as Sports Illustrated writer Ben Golliver noted, LeBron James will certainly need something more to compete with the Warriors, who have Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green all remaining with the team for years to come and all at their peak.
"The way that he embraced the opportunity in the Finals, it was unbelievable", Stephen Curry told reporters. "But obviously as a team we're going to have a conversation".
In his recent Instagram clip, the comic and former Men's Fitness cover model admits that he still didn't think the Warriors would win it, but then goes on to congratulate Durant on finally getting his first championship ring. "So a championship is just a cherry on top".
This was Durant's second Finals appearance.
"He was sitting there with his dog in his lap", Myers said. "Guys like Steph Curry welcoming him and kind of let him shine, it worked out like it should".
Durant is so dedicated to winning multiple championships that he is reportedly considering taking less money from the team in order to free up space to re-sign key reserves like Shaun Livingston and Andre Iguodala. "You don't force anybody to have to take that approach, but at the end of the day, we know what's best for us as a group going forward and we're going to do whatever we can to keep this team together". I'm happy for him. The play was liked more than 2.8 million times. "Tonight it did for him". I hadn't thought about it until I heard yesterday. But you don't concern me.
"He's the only one I've been looking at since 2012". I came in and tried to help my team ... be aggressive and sacrifice.
There is always some negativity attached to the idea of a super team, and maybe that's the reason why Durant and James are equally as defensive about their teams being described in that light. But, Facebook says the most "Wow'd" post was James' outta nowhere self alley-oop off the backboard in Game 4.
Durant's 28.8-point playoff career scoring average ranks fourth all-time, trailing only Michael Jordan, Allen Iverson and Jerry West and ranking just ahead of James at 28.4.
