Warriors strangely roast Kevin Durant at championship parade

Kevin Durant has stated that he plans to return to the Golden State Warriors next season, but general manager Bob Myers made things a little awkward Tuesday.

The repeat champions went back-to-back, beating LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers 108-85 on Friday night to finish off a four-game sweep of the NBA Finals in the fourth consecutive meeting between the clubs. Golden State rookie Jordan Bell began the day bemoaning on Twitter that he "left the Henny at home", but after brandishing an empty bottle while on a float, he found someone in the Oakland crowd able to satisfy his craving.

The Golden State Warriors may have no interest in visiting the White House or President Donald Trump, but there are other lawmakers in Washington eager to celebrate the National Basketball Association champions.

"You told (Stephen Curry) he could have whatever he wanted a year ago", Fitzgerald said to Myers.

As expected, Durant declined his player option for next season in April, which makes him an unrestricted free agent. I'd love to have him for 10 years.

'I'm just excited to be here with these guys.

However, at Tuesday's parade, Green wasn't the only one trolling James.

"[The Durant comments were] just for the media, he can't have anything he wants", Myers said.

"And there ended the Warriors' cohesion right there", Fitzgerald finished.

"We never really imagined that we would be having one parade, let alone two and now three", Curry said during a short live interview before the parade started.
