Warriors' Curry, Durant eye dynasty

It should come as no surprise that details are still being ironed out but, if the report is accurate, Golden State is ahead of the game in moving toward a deal with Iguodala. On Thursday, it's all about the parade. They didn't sign Durant just to beat LeBron James.

Stephen Curry is likely to go from being the NBA's biggest bargain to signing the richest contract in the league at more than $200 million. The NBA championship-winning boss plans on sticking around much longer than that. But going from Russell Westbrook's running mate in Oklahoma City to world champion with Golden State capped off an interesting season for Durant.

Following the Warriors' triumph in the NBA Finals, the team's official statement on a possible visit to the White House was that it has not yet been invited, and "will make those decisions when and if necessary".

It was the second parade in three seasons for the Warriors, who wrapped up their latest crown by finishing off a five-game victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday.

Money and egos aside, the Warriors blended beautifully from the day Durant first walked into team headquarters. When asked if the Golden State Warriors would meet that price point, Lacob said that he will do whatever it takes to keep Curry in Golden State, meaning that he will nearly surely get that big money contract.

The Oklahoman writer also voiced the repetitive argument that Golden State had such a stacked team full of talent that it was only expected that they would win the title.

In one hand he clutched the trophy awarded after the Warriors put away the rival Cleveland Cavaliers in game five of the NBA Finals, and with the other slapping high-fives with fans lining streets littered by a blizzard of blue and gold confetti.

But Business Insider pointed out Warriors coach Steve Kerr - who has openly criticized the Trump administration's proposed travel ban - reportedly decided in November that he wouldn't accept an invitation to the White House if the Warriors won the championship. The Warriors won 129-120 to win the National Basketball Association championship.

Warriors players on buses passed Cahambing and his family twirling T-shirts over their heads and waving to the crowd as blue and yellow confetti rained down.

With a core of four All-Stars in their prime, the Warriors aren't content with just winning one. But 16-1 is a pretty good postseason record. One pregnant fan had painted the Warriors' logo on her stomach.
