The Golden State Warriors finally found redemption in the form of an NBA Finals trophy last night, after their 73-win season last year was ruined by a 3-1 Finals comeback by the Lebron James-led Cleveland Cavaliers.

After the highly-talked about signing of Oklahoma City rival Kevin Durant, the already-guaranteed Finals contender Warriors had a breeze through the postseason, only losing once to the Cavs in Game 4. The "3-1 Revenge Squad" didn't just have that lost on their mind and decided to teach Cleveland a message for ruining another perfect record by locking in taking advantage of sloppy play by the Cavs.

 The Warriors win it all!

It was a valiant effort by Lebron and Kyrie Iriving, but Dub Nation eventually locked in for a 129-120 victory over the Cavs and most importantly, a long sought after ring for Kevin Durant. The NBA Finals MVP was met on the court by the Real MVP, his mom.

 KD and his mom!
