Kevin Durant and LeBron James put on an absolute show in the 2017 NBA Finals.

Durant led the Golden State Warriors to a five-game NBA Finals triumph over James and the Cleveland Cavaliers to win his first championship.

KD averaged 35.2 points in the series and earned Finals MVP. James posted a series triple-double, averaging 33.6 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists per game.

After the Warriors clinched their second title in three years with a 129-120 Game 5 win at Oracle Arena on Monday night, the two superstars embraced in a show of mutual respect.

Given the age and talent of both these teams, it’s possible we could see several more Warriors vs. Cavs showdowns in June.
