The Golden State Warriors are NBA Champions! We should probably get used to hearing that phrase for the foreseeable future.
This was supposed to be the series to end all series. The Warriors cruised through the western conference, and aside from a hiccup or two the Cavs did the same in the east. But this was going to be the series that saved the 2017 NBA playoffs and in the end it was a dud just the same.
There were some great performances, Finals MVP Kevin Durant put on a show from start to finish. LeBron had a historic performance, I mean the guy averaged a triple double in the finals while shooting 59% for crying out loud. He honestly probably should have won Finals MVP even on a losing team.
In the end, the finish was just about what everyone thought it would be from the moment KD signed the dotted line in Golden State. Ya the Cavs managed to get one to avoid the sweep, but all that did was delay the inevitable.
Time will tell if LeBron or anyone else can put a team together that can compete with these Warriors. Until then you might as well go ahead and pencil in the Warriors as champs for at least the next 3-4 years. And if thats the case? Whats the point of even watching?
