Golden State cruised to its second championship ring thanks to Kevin Durant, who claimed Finals MVP honors after posting the most efficient scoring performance in Finals history.
This video features five facts that will shed some light on the newest NBA Finals MVP. "And when Steph turned that corner, I think it was after Christmas Day, when he turned that corner, we became nearly unbeatable".
The 2017 National Basketball Association champion Golden State Warriors have not yet decided if they will visit the White House to celebrate their title.
Durant did indeed join a ready-made contender by teaming up with two-time reigning league MVP Stephen Curry in a team that won it all in 2015 and were runners-up a year ago after a season in which they had a record 73 wins in 82 games.

He wrote: "Not everyday the wonderfully grounded and caring Adele pops into Chelsea Fire Station for a cup of tea and a cuddle". May has come under personal attack for failing to meet residents during her first visit to the site.
But as the Warriors sealed a 4-1 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers - gaining revenge having collapsed from 3-1 up against the same opponents previous year - Durant's switch has been vindicated. The Golden State Warriors are arguably going to be regarded as having the best playoff run of all time after barely surrendering one game to a star-studded Lebron James team.
That's a 10-year period in which the Lakers won three titles and the Celtics won two, they faced each other three times and the Lakers played in seven Finals.
No one seems to want to own the super-team categorization, with both LeBron James and Kevin Durant evading the association with such an arrangement this week. "She's seen how I come home after losses and how tough I take it ... it feels good to see it come full circle", he said.
"I just wanted to lay it all out there".
Curry and Durant also heard from former President Barack Obama with congratulations, though Durant said he was most excited that among 200 messages was a text from a high school girlfriend he didn't realize still had his number.
Minute's silence for victims of Grenfell Tower blaze
Are there other buildings with that cladding? "The response of the emergency services, NHS and the community has been heroic". Officials are using dental records, fingerprints, DNA samples, tattoos and scars to try and positively identify victims.
"I think it was a typical closeout game", Golden State head coach Steve Kerr said.
You couldn't help but wonder what Kevin Durant was thinking last night as the clock ticked down to the NBA Championship.
They are called the Golden State Warriors, but they don't belong to all of California.
He also added 8.2 rebounds and 5.2 assists a game. "All the pieces that we have are important to the equation of winning a championship and competing for a championship every single year". The NBA, after all, is an entertainment industry and last I checked, like any movie or book, it's harder to be entertained when you know the ending.
