  1. Bill russell not the greatest player that ever played the game no matter how many rings he got or mvp's he got check the stats, kobe would have dunked on his ass kobe dunk on the best kobe dunked on the tallest players in the nba kobe dunked on the badest players in the nba, we no mvp's don't mean shit because kobe would have 10 but kobe fucked up by fucking white women we all know kobe was the greatest basketball players we ever seen kobe won back to back championships with no allstars on the team michael jordan never did that

  2. Congrats ! But got lucky . All I have to say ! Chris Paul ….! Oh boy … I think NBA is a rigged …! It's all pre- arranged …! It's no dynasty anymore way it's used to be . . It's all business .

  3. Golden sont plus fort ,les CAVS ne peuvent que regarder en plus Lebron n-y croyez plus aussi,ça affecté son équipe.

  4. WHO IS BUM NOW JAMES PLAY BASKET BALL THATS WHAT YOU DO BEST INSTEAD OF CALLING THE PRESIDENT I PUT BUM I WAS SUPPORTING YOUR TEAM NOT ANY FUCKING MORE MADE MY DAY JUST Watched the result like i predict !!!

  5. DID IT IN DA KINGs HOUSE. 3 IN 4 YEARS. DA KING 8 STRAIGHT FINALS.( 2 wins/6 LOSSES ) DA GREATEST ON DA PLANET. PATHETIC. AMEN 💀

  6. Klay Thompson is the best player on the GSW, he has consistently DUG the warriors out of holes and has stepped up when Curry and KD couldn't score for shit

  7. How did Curry not win MVP with that ridiculous shooting performance? Both Curry and Durant had one bad game, but Curry had 2 huge games! It was a close call, but it seems like that game 4 performance should have clinched it…

  8. in my mind,Stephen Curry is the best basketball player, he is also the fmvp, fighting, the golden state warrior will be better

  9. A EGOLESS TEAM FROM STARTERS TO SUBS THAT'S Y THEY DO WHAT THEY DO NO WONDER PLAYERS WANT TO COME TO THIS TEAM THERE SMART THE SLOGAN SPEAKS FOR ITSELF "STRENGTH IN NUMBERS" = TROPHIES NOT INDIVIDUAL STARDOM AND WHAT GOOD IS IT IF YOUR TEAMMATES DON'T LEARN FROM IT I'M NOT FROM THE BAY I ENJOY THEIR RIGHT WAY OF PLAYING THE GAME THE MEDIA TRIED TO MEDIATE SEVERAL PLAYERS ON THE MVP AND THEY COULD CARE LESS STEPH WANTED KD TO COME TO THE BAY AND THEY'RE ENJOYING THE TROPHIES HOPE THEY GET MANY MORE

  10. Silver and the management want to divide the warriors. Giving KD the mvp can work to make curry jealous and enraged, disrupting his facilitator/team driven play style as he has to “prove” he is the “man” of the team within the warriors.

  11. Леброн чемпион Ирвинг лучший стэф кари понторез Дюрант черт

  12. So sad for king James…congrats for GSW…my team…your are deserved brother for that thropy….

  13. Listen Lebron is better then micheal not greater but better. However at this rate the Golden state warriors will be the GREATEST TEAM EVER with 2 MVP, 1 DPOY and the 2 of the best three point shooters of all time. And finally I think Stephen curry with be the second greatest PG after Magic Jhonson. Klay Thompson being a top 10 sg of all time and Kevin surant being the second greatest sf after lebron. (Remember I said greatest not best)

  14. u dont F%$#! n double team someone and dont get the finals MVP, wtf is this SH!T, what steve kerr said curry creates chaos, PG doubled teamed by 2 giants its jus absurd its crazy and he dont get FMVP for that, that lil dude been fouled more than anyone on both teams and f%#$k the refs, where's he's credit, i know hes a humble but dude you dont disrespect that power of a lil guy in the NBA, jus like what AI said mann…. rofls.. he's got a heart and has been with the warriors ever since, its jus sad TT

  15. I am a true warriors fan and Durant is my favorite player but I think next year the mvp is going to be Klay Thompson or Draymond Green I'm just tired of seeing Durant get mvp for 2 years in a row💪💪💪💪💪💪 this is for you LeBron lame 🖕🖕🖕😭😭😭

  16. Not either Curry or Durant deserves MVP we all know what LeBron did every single game through out the playoffs, y’all niggas trippin! (Westbrook Voice)

  17. Warriors is always a warriors that no one can beat with Curry and Durant.. Stephen Curry and Durant always got amazing a unexpected points with his amazing moves…💪👏👏👏

  18. Curry: Man if it wasn't for me we wouldn't have won the finals back to back years.

    Durant: So what am here for?

    Curry: Motha fucker your here just too win 2 rings back to back and steal Finals MVP back to back years from me.

  19. yeah mon got that third ring go golden state warriors great job getting that second ring Kd we proud and Steph curry you are the second Micheal jordan ever

  20. Steve Kerr is the best coach ever i look up too him since chicago bulls and when he was on the spurs and retired hes like another Phil Jackson he is the best

  21. Bill Russell and Steve Kerr are the only two in NBA history to win back to back championships as a player and a head coach

  22. The northern Ca. pro sports teams have all won the pinnacle championship except the shark's soo come on SanJose and get that Stanley Cup to complete our world domination.

  23. Don't be mad Curry's fans!
    Next year curry will be the MVP!
    Check the stats, the final average if you still think curry got robbed!!!!
    Don't watch NBA if u can't understand how it works to be a FMVP!

  24. This team is grit, heart, tenacity, and greatness all in one; no one in the history of the NBA can beat this team. They are unstoppable & legendary and will win 16 more consecutive championships as long as KD & Steph stay on this team
