"They assembled a great team", James said.
Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James also took exception to the "super team" moniker. "I think we handle (the White House situation) when it gets there". ". I'm sure we will have a conversation about it pretty soon".
"I couldn't sleep for two days", Durant said.
The Warriors, who beat Cleveland in the 2015 Finals only to lose to them a year ago after squandering a 3-1 series lead, went a record-setting 16-1 in the playoffs, their only loss coming in Game Four of the best-of-seven championship.
At the time, Durant called the leadup to his decision the most challenging few weeks of his National Basketball Association career, and even said it was not about winning titles but about personal growth and quality-of-life choices.
"Y'all been riding with me and it feels good to see it come full circle", he told reporters from Oracle Arena where the Golden State Warriors beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 129-120 in game 5 of the NBA Finals.
James could opt out of his contract after next season, so he will want to see some progress.
"Teams and franchises are going to be trying to figure out ways that they can put personnel together, the right group of guys together to be able to hopefully compete against this team".
The parade wound through downtown Oakland, where fans in Warriors shirts and hats cheered their favorite players.
Since that moment the team went on its incredible 31-2 streak and thus the internet was quick to point out the significance of the toaster which is now of the most valuable pieces of sports memorabilia going.
We're going to do everything we can to keep this team together.
And Durant knows James will soon be working on new ways to dethrone the Warriors.
