Thousands of fans flooded the streets of downtown Oakland to cheer on their champions. They did and were soon rewarded with the franchise's first championship after several years of drought.
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. I mean, it may be different. Ian Clark is also an impending restricted free agent but it's unclear how far the Warriors front office is willing to go into the luxury tax to keep everyone.

The Warriors look to be built for the long hall with a majority of their roster under age 30, including four 2017 All-Stars.

After winning the 2015 NBA title, Curry waxed poetic about his days living in basketball obscurity, when he resided in an apartment looking down on Lake Merritt, all while his adorable daughter, Riley, wooed the crowd with inaudible coos.
The franchise is set to move across the bay to San Francisco in 2019. Corey Wong flew all the way from Hong Kong, braving a 16-hour flight, to celebrate with his team.
"Same time, next year", co-owner Peter Lacob said.
