Yes, the Warriors cemented themselves as a dynasty with an all-too-easy sweep of the ClevelandCavaliers, but to say that they are bad for basketball and the NBA is ludicrous.
It must be noted that tip off was a little after 9 p.m. on the east coast.
LeBron James claims he played final three games with broken hand.
It is a formula for utter dominance, and the only drama in the second half of the 108-85 win to complete the sweep came when James checked out with four minutes to go, and one wondered if the Cleveland crowd would cry out in anguish or just go straight to the jersey-burning.
Durant averaged 28.8 points in the series, along with 10.8 rebounds and 7.5 assists.
On a podcast during the finals, Gilbert said he views James as much more than a player. "How do you put together a group of talent but also a group of minds to be able to compete with Golden State, to be able to compete for a championship?"

"We knew that they were going to come out with a tough first punch and we answered it and ran right back at them and set the tone for the whole game", Curry said. Durant, for example, was paid US$25-million this season.

James would seem to have a much better shot to win another championship in Houston compared to Los Angeles depending on who else the Lakers could lure, such as George or possibly Kawhi Leonard of the Spurs via trade.
A majority of Curry's 37 points came from outside the 3-point arc. You don't just have to assemble a roster that can challenge Golden State, but you have to do it at close to their price.
"When you get on the podium and you realize all the hard work that you put into it and all that you've been through led to that moment, it never gets boring", Curry said. Andre Iguodala has three off the bench.
Other possible destinations for James include Philadelphia, Houston, Boston, San Antonio, Golden State and Miami. The three-time champion, including 2016 when the Cavaliers beat Golden State in seven games, can opt out of his Cleveland contract this offseason.
