Warriors sweep Cavaliers to win NBA title

Golden boys: Kevin Durant, second from left, celebrates after the Warriors defeated the Cavaliers.

The Warriors are champs again.

The Golden State Warriors earned their third National Basketball Association title in four seasons after completing a comprehensive 4-0 series win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

"You guys like this brace, huh?" And it was the first time that a team had lost a finals in a clean sweep since 2007, when the San Antonio Spurs inflicted that pain on... the James-led Cavaliers. The Cavaliers' largest lead in Game 4 was one point.

"We just know how to win", Curry said.

Ahead 104-79 lead with 2:47 left, Kerr called timeout and cleared the bench. James, however, has stuffed a stat sheet unlike anyone before him, and has a chance at finishing a second consecutive finals averaging a triple-double. I just appreciate what he's done for us this season. It's good to be around guys like this. "Going through it, the trial and error is only going to make you a better player".

"And when the competition is as great as it has been every year we've been here facing LeBron and the teams he's been with", Curry said.

Ironically, it is West who's highly-regarded as the architect of this Golden State Warriors juggernaut - the team responsible for two or maybe three of the Cavs forward's finals losses, depending on what happens in the 2018 NBA Finals.

The 33-year-old scored 23 points with eight assists and seven rebounds, falling just short of passing Michael Jordan's record for the most points in one postseason.

The vote for Finals MVP was 7-4 for Durant over Curry. "I had emotions of you just don't get an opportunity like this on the road versus Golden State to be able to get a Game 1, and I let the emotions get the best of me". You show up thinking that we're going to show up and win, right? I mean, everybody knew that besides Portland, I guess.

And while they will likely have more competition next year (especially in the Finals with the Celtics and 76ers on the verge of becoming forces), they're going to be the favorites to win it all again. Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, Andre Iguodala and Klay Thompson all got hurt. He has now scored at least 20 points in 28 straight playoff games, including all 21 this season. LeBron James said on Thursday that he wishes Wade was still on the team. George Hill and Rodney Hood shot a combined 5 of 20.

Bottom line: James needs better, smarter teammates. It was revealed after the loss that he played through a right hand contusion, which was a byproduct of punching a whiteboard following a heartbreaking Game 1. However, I couldn't bring myself to bet against LeBron James in an elimination game versus Boston.

"The job and my family carry me through", Kerr told ESPN Radio after Friday's game.

"I remember sitting in this room three years ago and it seemed like a dream". I've got a teenage boy, a pre-teen and a little girl that wasn't around as well.

"So I will sit down and consider everything, but my family is a huge part of what I decide to do. So I don't have an answer for you right now as far as that". Of the Warriors' four superstars, all are under contract, although Durant has an opt-out clause in his.

Here's the information you need to watch tonight's Warriors vs Cavaliers Game 4 on TV or online including the start time.

Despite the Warriors' dominance, they believe they navigated a hard journey.

Now, with the Golden State Warriors leading the series 3-0, I think it's time I wrote this article.

"This is a journey that's better than the destination", Durant said.
