Oakland is partying like it’s 1975 since for the first time in 40 years, the Golden State Warriors are NBA Champions.
Stephen Curry had 25 points and 8 assists while Draymond Green had a triple-double as Golden State defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 105-97 in Game 6 of the NBA Finals. Andre Iguodala (who was named Finals MVP) had 23 points while LeBron James who dropped yet another NBA Championship opportunity finished with 32 points, 17 rebounds and 8 assists.
In the end the best team from start to finish won the Championship. Whether it was Curry scoring 40 one night or Klay Thompson netting 40 the next, Draymond Green stepping in for the veteran All-Star David Lee, Iguodala turning into a valuable 6th man during the regular season and Steve Kerr brining everything together, the Warriors were what you think of when you consider what a truly complete NBA team is.
On the other end you have LeBron James who truly is the best player in the League stricken with really turned out to be quite the impossible task of putting an entire team on his back to try to beat the best team in the NBA. If you had to play out this season 100 more times LeBron may still lose all of them, he’ll take the heat and it won’t be fair.
At this point though it’s not about LeBron or Cleveland missing out on another Championship. It’s about Golden State and what the NBA tried to do away with. Parody and an actual team game.
