Golden State Warriors Win Third NBA Championship In Four Years

Golden State Warriors Win Third NBA Championship In Four Years

Stephen Curry scored 37 points, Kevin Durant added 20 and a triple double, and the Warriors stamped themselves a dynasty after winning their second straight National Basketball Association title and third in four years Friday night, 108-85 over the Cavaliers to complete a sweep and perhaps drive LeBron James from his home again to chase championships. It's not always just about you. Does it? We won two championships.

Durant was named the 2018 Finals MVP after he averaged 28.8 points, 10.8 rebounds and 7.5 assists per game in the Warriors' sweep of Cleveland.

"K.D.'s been awesome these last two years, especially in the finals, and so deserving of back-to-back finals MVPs", Warriors guard Stephen Curry said.

The Golden State Warriors were not flawless. "People have been saying that for the past four years". And this Golden State run isn't ending any time soon.

"That was fantastic what he did out there", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.

Get out the brooms, we've got a sweep. "But what (Cavaliers coach) Ty (Lue) did with his group and obviously what LeBron does night after night is just incredible". One of two game-winners, mind you. "Very emotional. For a lot of different reasons", James said. "I know the veterans are going to come back and do exactly what they need to do".




James' arms outstretched toward the basket while J.R. Smith dribbled out the remaining seconds of Game 1. Stephen Curry rained 3-pointers and led all scorers with 37 points in Game 4.

The NBA salary cap for next season is expected to be around $101 million.

James can opt out of his contract after this season and there's an increasing belief that he will choose to leave the Cavaliers in search of a better supporting cast - which he could potentially find with the Philadelphia 76ers, Los Angeles Lakers, Houston Rockets or Boston Celtics.

"I have no idea at this point", James said at the podium after Game 4 ended. So sitting down and considering everything - my family is a huge part of whatever I've chose to do in my career, and they'll continue to be that.

Depending on who you ask, LeBron James may be the answer to that question, or Michael Jordan could get the vote. Durant waxed poetic about what it means to him to grow up in tough circumstances in Maryland and to achieve so much through hard work that not only enabled him to grow rich and see the world but to call himself a two-time champion. "We just have to come out Friday and not give in". "For us to be able to be here again, we can't get enough of this feeling".

That starts and ends with adding another superstar to play alongside James, assuming LBJ stays in Cleveland. "And then he was the story in the second half as well, closing it out".
