I wanted to conform to the culture they built here.
The numbers say: 35.2 points per Finals game on 12 made field goals per game.
For Kevin Durant, it was vindication that he was right to jump ship from Oklahoma City and join the rival Warriors, although he will still be widely criticised for it.
Tristan Thompson, J.R. Smith, Kevin Love, LeBron James, and Kyrie Irving - the team's starting five - combine for about 76 percent of the team's overall payroll.
Money and egos aside, the Warriors blended beautifully from the day Durant first walked into team headquarters.
Portugal and Mexico draw 2-2 in Confederations Cup
With time running out, Southampton right-back Cedric pounced on a loose ball and slammed home Portugal's second goal. The result left European champion Portugal and Gold Cup victor Mexico trailing host Russian Federation in Group A.
The 40 year old swingman is in the final years of his career. The Warriors went on to win the championship and came out nearly unscathed, with a 16-1 record. The Warriors are still at their best when the ball is in Curry's hands. They are going to be really good.
The numbers say: For the Finals, the "Death" line-up with Green at center had a 142.0 offense rating and 96.3 defensive rating - the highest net rating of any line-up logging 10 or more minutes.
As recently as last month Kerr called Trump a "blowhard" and said he "couldn't be more ill-suited for office". The results were stunning, as usual.

After the Warriors clinched the National Basketball Association title on Monday night, Steph's daughters were front and center during the post-game celebration. Order the book here. His 39-point outburst in Game 5 was an exclamation point on an MVP-worthy performance.

With a core of four All-Stars in their prime, the Warriors aren't content with just winning one.
Regardless the team is hoping to be celebrating another title next June. The second-round rookie didn't just log NBA Finals minutes, he had a positive impact with his shooting, hustle and general knack for always being near the ball.
The 2012 draft saw the Warriors select Harrison Barnes, Festus Ezeli and Draymond Green, three players that would all have a significant impact on the organizaiton. So, yes, those individual match-ups are overrated and hardly decide which team wins the contest. It doesn't even matter how well he performs anymore.The latest round of chatter has gained steam because many are now asking the same questions the Cavs are faced with this off-season: How big is the gap with the Warriors? In fact, multiple reports indicate that Durant is likely to sign under the "early Bird" provision in the CBA, leaving the Warriors with the ability to stay above the salary cap and make things easier with regard to signing role players like Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston. Fresh off a championship, the Warriors have already convinced another one of their impending free agents to stick around for the long haul. They were running sets all the way through.
Will LeBron's eyes wander elsewhere if they again fall short next year?
Everyone and their mother said it before the start of the season. For the price, it could be worth a look if you're the Warriors.
