Back-to-back titles, and Finals MVPs, for Kevin Durant

Back-to-back titles, and Finals MVPs, for Kevin Durant

Whatever the case may be, the Warriors are the 2018 NBA Champions.

He is often a man of few words, but Durant let his thoughts be known Friday night after the Warriors won their second consecutive title by finishing off a sweep of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

While the Cavaliers are on the brink of losing another series against the Warriors, it is a question of whether they will win a game or sweep.

It must be noted that tip off was a little after 9 p.m. on the east coast. LeBron James checked out with 4:03 remaining in what could have been his final game in Cleveland, with fans chanting "MVP!"

LeBron had another big game for Cleveland (33 points, 11 assists, 10 rebounds), Love added 20 and 13, and Hood at 14 and 6 off the bench, and the Cavs did nearly everything right in throttling the offensive opportunities for the Splash Brothers. And while James said he's still unsure what he will do when he can opt out his contract and hit the free agent market this summer, the 4-time MVP provided his most thorough insight to date regarding his upcoming decision. Houston, who narrowly was defeated by the Golden State in the WCF, maybe he accepts that he can't beat Golden State, so he joins them.

Karl Malone, John Stockton, Allen Iverson, Steve Nash, Charles Barkley, Reggie Miller, Elgin Baylor, Dominque Wilkins, these are only a few of the many players in National Basketball Association history never to win a ring. "So I don't have an answer for you right now as far as that". Durant, for example, was paid US$25-million this season.

To which Curry said, "Amen", in so many words. After the loss, LeBron took out his anger on a whiteboard in the visitor's locker room leaving James with a deep bone contusion on his shooting hand. "I don't think anybody's even anxious about that stuff". "From five years ago until now, it seems like he's ten times better, because he's added so much skill to his game".

He said he'd gotten upset over some of the calls against his team in the fourth quarter of their opening loss and that they'd missed their opportunity to win on the road. So how does a player like KD find himself joining a roster that had just won 73 games a year prior?

Plus, Golden State will get better. James' hand was so swollen after Game 1 that the initial MRI exam didn't reveal clear results. They can make plays. But from there on, Durant, Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and the rest of this California crew showed why they're the game's gold standard.

The Cavs had successfully faced down elimination three times this season but were unable to mount any threat of a rally in this one as the Warriors simply possessed too much firepower.

Even though the Warriors were pushed to the brink of elimination by the Houston Rockets in the Western Conference Finals, it always felt as though Golden State had everything under control.

Kevin Love had 13 points, while JR Smith and Rodney Hood chipped in with 10 apiece for Cleveland, which shot just 34.5 percent from the field and 8-for-27 from behind the 3-point line.
