This Is How the Warriors Won the 2018 NBA Championship

Jun 8 2018 Cleveland OH USA Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry shoots the ball against Cleveland Cavaliers forward Le Bron J

Stephen Curry is under contract for basically the rest of his prime. But to many, but it feels like one and it looks like one for many reasons.

A team that appears to be in the early stages of a dynasty, Golden State was ferocious on defense and seamlessly smooth on offense.

It's their league now, without question.

The Warriors have run into James for four consecutive years in the Finals and although they've got the better of him on three occasions, his individual numbers and performances over those four series have been truly remarkable. They demolished the Cleveland Cavaliers 108-85 on Friday night at Quicken Loans Arena to complete a four-game sweep. "They're very different, but however you want to rank them, they're right there together". "Is it if there is a ball on the ground we can't reach for it but you've got to dive for it?"

The Warriors dominated the series.

If James does decline his upcoming player option and signs with another team in free agency, the Cavaliers might look to move on from Love. Their ultimate goal was to get "clicking like Golden State" when it mattered most: the postseason.

Durant won his second title and second NBA Finals Most Valuable Player award, the power forward scoring a career playoff high 43 points in game three. "I just know what we've been able to accomplish is really meaningful and something that not many players have been able to experience".

"I'm just trying to prove to myself that I could just stay in it for the long haul, and hopefully I continue to have some success", he added. "That's my only concern". James is set to become a free agent after exercising his player option, though he could still work out a new deal with the Cavs.

He can't be guarded now - and he wants to keep growing.


Here's what they had to say.

James said he did not yet know where he would play next season. "He's on the past year of a deal, so they don't want to take on money". That's the beauty of their team.

Durant was obviously worth the max on the open market and chose to take the discount so the Warriors could keep their core intact under the NBA's salary cap and avoid an extensive National Basketball Association tax burden. They spend a ton of money, but they do it smartly.

They couldn't wait any longer. It's just that's the talent we have, and that's the experience we've gained. Has LeBron James played his last game in a Cavs uniform? Some will try to do so in 2019.

When it was all over Friday night, there was both an arrogance and a humility to Durant - both understandable. Durant played 312 possessions, over the course of which he held his matchups to a combined 33-of-65 (50.7 percent).

To which Curry said, "Amen", in so many words.

For the Cavs, it could mean that they could get something for their best asset even if he decides to leave.

"If he doesn't go to Philadelphia, I would raise Philadelphia and lower Boston and Boston would be the Eastern Conference favorite", Sherman said.
