Shortly after the Warriors won the 2017 NBA championship on Monday night, the beer and champagne began to flow.
Kevin Durant was not adequately prepared:

On Tuesday morning, Cleveland Browns left tackle Joe Thomas took to Twitter to offer his thoughts:
I remember my first beer https://t.co/duRHH6ufvu— Joe Thomas (@joethomas73) June 13, 2017
Thomas was the 3rd overall pick in the 2007 draft and has reached the Pro Bowl every season of his career.
He has been named First Team All-Pro six times.
Thomas has never reached the playoffs and the Browns' record over the last nine seasons combined is 38-106.
Durant averaged 35.2 points, 8.4 rebounds, 5.4 assists per game during the Finals, while shooting over 55 percent from the field and 47 percent from deep.
He was named NBA Finals MVP.
As the Bay Area News Group's Anthony Slater reported on Monday night, Durant stopped drinking alcohol when he sprained his knee on Feb. 28.
“If I had been drinking as much as I had been drinking, the recovery wouldn’t have been as easy,” Durant said. “So I decided to put it down and once I got back healthy, I was like let me see how this is, let me roll with it for the rest of the playoffs.”
