Curry, Durant committed to keeping Golden State on top

And the different kind of ceremonies and traditions that have happened around championship-winning teams, we don't want that to taint what we've accomplished this year.

Durant has said that his decision not to play for the D.C. team had nothing to do with the fans or the city.

The two-time US Olympic gold medallist scored more than 30 points in each of the five games - the first player since Shaquille O'Neal in 2000 for the LA Lakers - and averaged 35.2 per game across the series.

That may be the case, but in the end it's Durant who got the last laugh as he finally made it to the National Basketball Association promised land.

"I'm sure as a team we're gonna have a conversation (about a potential visit)", he said.

Fans who gathered in Oakland, California, for Thursday's parade celebrating the Warriors Finals victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers said they expected more championships from the team in the years to come.

"You can talk about whatever happens on the outside, but inside those lines, I come to bring it every day", Durant said. "So we will see, but I will get away from the game a little bit".

"Pretty much all their big-name guys are in their 20s, and they don't show any signs of slowing down". Warriors Coach Steve Kerr missed several games this year with back issues.

The Warriors completed the most dominant performance in postseason history, sweeping through the Western Conference playoff picture before defeating the Cavaliers in five games.

LeBron James was remarkable in defeat, however. On average, his Finals opponent have been on average 3.28 points better than his teams. Durant, Curry, Kyrie Erving and James. Need I say this Warriors group is special?

Durant signed with the Warriors as a free agent in the summer of 2016 after the Celtics had made a hard push to get him.
