Oakland triumphant as parade set to celebrate NBA's Warriors

He went from his rookie deal into an extension before he hit restricted free agency years back, signing a deal - four years, $44 million - that would prove to be far under his value.

The Warriors are headed to San Francisco, where they broke ground this year on a new arena slated to open in 2019.

Oakland recently learned it's losing one of its other beloved teams, the Raiders, to Las Vegas in 2020, and the city is still reeling from a police scandal and mourning a deadly warehouse fire.

But Thursday was a rare chance to celebrate. We just won a championship, man. Let's see if we can do it again.

Facebook outlines strategy to prevent terrorist content
But the company says it will use artificial intelligence to stop the spread of such inappropriate content on the platform. This is a departure from Facebook's earlier practice of relying on users to flag suspect content for removal.

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.

One thing is clear - if no one can assemble a truly special team, the Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy could very well reside in the Bay Area for years to come.

Iguodala has cryptically and not-so-cryptically indicated his desire to return to the Warriors throughout the season, even mentioning during The Finals that he'd be talking to the media again in early July at a press conference with Curry and Durant, announcing extensions.

"I mean, come on, you got a bunch of guys who are talented and can shoot and pass and dribble, and they're unselfish", Kerr said.

US Inflation Demurs as Fed Hike Expected
Medical services such as the cost of doctor's visits dipped 0.1 percent in May but have risen 2.5 percent over the past 12 months. American consumers forked out a total of US$473.8 billion (RM2 trillion) for the month, 3.8 per cent above May of a year ago .

After taking a lot of criticism for signing with Golden State last summer - people thought he was somehow wrong for joining an already established championship team - Durant put an exclamation point on his decision, leading the Warriors past the Cleveland Cavaliers in a dominant five-game Finals performance. "I love it, I love the group, I love coaching them every day, and this is what I want to do for a long time". "This is something that we want to continue to do, but for us to have these conversations that we had nearly a year ago and now being in this position, worth every shot we took in practice, fighting through injuries that he had this year, and it's an unbelievable feeling".

"First of all, if everybody wanted Steph, he would have been the No. 1 pick", Durant said. A lot of people doubted Steph, saying he wasn't going to be this good. Mary High School in Akron, he plans to "always push forward and not look backwards" during the offseason and ready himself for the pursuit of an eighth straight trip to The Finals.

Of course, with so many anti-Trump players and coaches on the team, it's also highly likely the White House won't extend the invite in the first place. Or, he could be going the extra mile in trying to emulate Jordan - the six-time National Basketball Association champion, five-time MVP whose "ghost" James has said he's chasing.

Even LeBron, who sparked the super team trend, hasn't played with the kind of star power the Warriors had during their five-game ousting of the Cavs.

She added: "Folk might remember I fought a leadership election on the other side of that particular argument". The DUP is the reason why Northern Ireland is the only part of the United Kingdom without same-sex marriage.

"It's a special team, a special group", Durant said. ("I'm cool with that", he confirmed.) Now that he's helped deliver a championship, he told me he feels a real kinship with Oakland. You're still getting spankings.
