Stephen Curry has some bad news for the rest of the NBA: The Golden State Warriors aren't going anywhere. 

"We're just getting started," Curry said after the Warriors' 129-120 Game 5 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday night, according to Sports Illustrated's Ben Golliver.   

Audacious as that statement may sound, it's not a reach. 

The Warriors rolled to a 16-1 postseason during their first season with Kevin Durant in the fold, and they only stand to mesh more in the years to come. 

"We only peeled the first layer," assistant coach Bruce Fraser told ESPN.com's Zach Lowe. "There are many more."

The Warriors will now enter free agency with some questions to answer, but the statuses of Curry (unrestricted) and Durant (player option) won't be up in the air. Both players have been adamant for months that they have no plans to move, and a title should only reinforce those stances. 

The same can't be said for impending unrestricted free agents Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston, but if the Warriors aren't scared off by sizable luxury tax payments, the full cast of characters could return with a chance to etch out a special place in NBA lore. 

"We're going down as one of the best teams ever," Iguodala said, per Golliver. "That's a special thing you can't take away from us."
