Watch the Golden State Warriors Championship Parade

Wojnarowski added that the Miami Heat, with whom James won his first two NBA Championships, could also be a possibility.

And so, at that locker, in that uniform, less than an hour after the most excruciating loss of his life, Green punched up Kevin Durant's number.

After the Golden State Warriors knocked out the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals Monday night, James was asked if he believes the league benefits from superstar players joining forces to chase titles.

Capturing a second title in three seasons in historic fashion has put the Golden State Warriors among some of the NBA's greatest championship squads, overcoming a heartbreaking setback to become even better.

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.

Before you knock LeBron for his 3-5 NBA Finals record, take a closer look at the teams he took there.

With Thompson playing in his third consecutive finals, this gives Washington State their 4th straight NBA Finals appearance and three Championships over those four years.

After the Warriors defeated the Cavs on Monday evening, Lee Jenkins wrote about the significant exchange Green had with Durant previous year.

"We make each other better and it's not about who gets the credit", Durant said.

"Just the camaraderie, the togetherness, that's what it was about". Critics have called the Warriors a super team with the addition of Kevin Durant a year ago. They had to be flawless even to win a game in these NBA Finals.

One thing is clear - if no one can assemble a truly special team, the Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy could very well reside in the Bay Area for years to come.

After joining the Warriors in July 2016 - a decision which caused shockwaves in the National Basketball Association world among talk of a GSW "super team" - it took Durant just one season to win his first championship.

She's still the real MVP.

Here is a map of the parade route.
