earlier in this series, klay thompson admitted that last season they got complacent and started thinking a little too much about their parade. one year later, the parade is a reality...and the warriors will get a hero's coronation later this week. until then, let's revisit the sights and sounds after they won the title.

for a very long time" and after a year spent with the cloud of 3-1 hanging over their heads, the only numbers that matter now are 4-1 against the cavs and two world championships in three seasons. "obviously we were heartbroken last year, but this year was our turn. and we are obviously quite happy if you couldn't tell by my wet hair." "we went through for lack of a better term, basketball hell in that sense being so close to getting the job done and not realizing that goal and having to think about that for an entire year and compartmentalizing it. you just try to keep the right perspective about this season and learn the lessons that we learn." and kevin durant has lived in his own basketball hell ....until he came to the bay area. after 10-years in the league, he's not only a champion, but a finals mvp. "plenty of times throughout my career, i continued to just look in the past and look ahead and not stay in the moment and this series i just stayed in the moment and we did it together man."
