Kevin Durant says Warriors were most disciplined team this season

OAKLAND In exit interviews on Wednesday afternoon, available Warriors reiterated that the team hasn't had an official discussion about whether or not they will go to the White House, if invited, as is custom for championship-winning sports teams.

In 2015, an estimated 500,000 fans were waiting in the streets of downtown Oakland along the parade route to cheer on their team, with some showing up as early as 3 a.m., per ESPN.

All-Star guard Stephen Curry recalled last year's loss to the Cavaliers in the finals and said everything the team went through last year makes this title so much sweeter.

"They're going to be around for a while", Cavaliers forward LeBron James said after suffering his second Finals defeat in three years to a Warriors team that went 16-1 in the playoffs. "It looks like it was easy, but guys like Steph Curry welcoming him and kind of let him shine - it worked out like it should", Myers said.

"We just won a championship, and I can guarantee that wasn't on anybody's mind as we were enjoying this", Finals MVP Kevin Durant, in his first year with the Warriors, said Wednesday of a possible White House visit.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr expressed his disappointment with the election results last November saying after the election that President Donald Trump regularly used "racist, misogynist, insulting words" during his campaign.

That is because the Warriors boast an intimidating starting lineup featuring four All-Stars in their 20s who are likely to be with the team for years to come.

"I remember exactly where I was this time past year, and it wasn't a great feeling", Curry told the crowd at a rally after the parade.

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green appears to be taking some shots at the Cleveland Cavaliers.

James teamed up with All-Stars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh on the Miami Heat to win his first championship in 2012. The Warriors won 129-120 to win the National Basketball Association championship and stake their claim to being one of the game's all-time great teams.

There is always some negativity attached to the idea of a super team, and maybe that's the reason why Durant and James are equally as defensive about their teams being described in that light.

Money and egos aside, the Warriors blended beautifully from the day Durant first walked into team headquarters.

"Just 'Congrats!' You know".

General Manager Bob Myers, who helped assemble the Warriors lineup after the franchise spent years as the league's laughing stock, and savvy owner Joe Lacob fill out the rest of the team.

"Oakland represents all of us", Kerr told KTVU.

"It's still in the Bay", he said.

On Thursday, June 15, they will have that chance again, as the Warriors victory parade is set to take over downtown Oakland, California.
