But students on Davidson's campus said Curry is not just known for his talent on the court but for who he is as a person.
One of them was owner Joe Lacob, who had a sore throat from yelling a bit during and after the game but stepped to an open space for this quick interview with me... They're right. That doesn't mean his move-and now his legacy-is immune to criticism.
"It's a special team, a special group", Durant said.
"The last couple of days I've thought about it [his future]".
It was also the seventh straight Finals appearance for LeBron, something that hasn't been done by a player since the 1960s Boston Celtics.
Russell Westbrook showed what he is capable of in what was most likely an MVP season. Is Durant now the game's best player?
Usually, the National Basketball Association champions are invited to the White House to meet the president, an event that tends to take place at some point during the following season. I broke down so I couldn't really finish my speech.
But Durant took the easy way out.
As the story goes, last March a fan attended a meet and greet with Klay Thompson and asked him to sign his Golden State branded toaster. It is often the most coveted accomplishment in the sport.
Curry embraced Durant's arrival after the Warriors dropped last year's finals to Cleveland in seven games, an unselfish attitude that reflected Durant's desires and created an inside-outside pairing that was almost unstoppable. Zaza Pachulia is not better than Charles Barkley just because he won a title.
But Durant was quick to congratulate last year's champions.
Golden State went 40 years between titles after winning the crown in 1975. "But tonight was a little different, just based on the things I've had to go through during this time". In fact, my interest has started to wane.
