Warriors complete sweep of Cavaliers to claim National Basketball Association title

LeBron James Cavs 2010

LeBron James Cavs 2010

The Golden State Warriors were down the hall inside Quicken Loans Arena early Saturday morning, with championship celebrations fully underway after completing a four-game sweep of the Cleveland Cavaliers to win a second straight National Basketball Association title, and a third in four years, with a 108-85 victory on Friday night at Quicken Loans Arena.

Shortly after the trophy ceremony crowning the Golden State Warriors NBA champions, ESPN reporter Brian Windhorst dropped a bit of a bombshell.

Durant recorded a triple-double in Friday's 108-85 game-four victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers. This feels more like reality. "That's the only thing that matters to us".

Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James, for everything that he has achieved in his career, has always been mocked due to his NBA Finals record. "You've got two guys with MVPs on their team". The Warriors lead this year's NBA Finals 3-0.

I contemplated writing this article about LeBron James three different times this postseason. "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?"

"The fact that they got here surprised me, actually", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. "It was definitely the toughest from the standpoint that it's the fourth year in a row that we've attempted to get back to the finals". Sometimes you can give everything you've got and still come up short.

That James sat at the podium with his right (shooting) hand in a soft cast after punching the whiteboard inside Oracle Arena's visiting locker room after Game 1 was emblematic of the broken roster he's been surrounded by this season. Throughout the night, Curry drained 3-pointers - 7 of 15 - while performing his signature shimmy move. "But after a game like that, I'm not in any position to talk about that". James was subbed out for Cedi Osman with 4:03 remaining, shook hands with a few of the Warriors players on his way to the bench, and walked off the court shortly after time expired. James saw a referee call reversed against him and J.R. Smith forego a final shot with the score level, thinking the Cavs were ahead.

Voters to decide state, federal, local races in CA primary
Across the country in Montclair, N.J., Lynnette Joy Baskinger, a psychotherapist, said she's fed up with the Republicans. In California's unusual top-two primary system , all these Democrats and Republicans are competing on the same ballot.

James, perhaps playing his final game for the Cavaliers, had his least productive outing of the series, recording 23 points, seven rebounds and eight assists in his eighth consecutive trip to the Finals.

That was his last finals with the Cavaliers before he left for the Miami Heat, and there's rampant speculation he could leave Cleveland again this offseason.

It may have been the final game in Cleveland for the 33-year-old, who is expected to opt out of his $35.6 million contract for 2019 next month and become a free agent. "That's what it is", James said.

Plus, I think Cleveland's chance of winning this series was spoiled by a number of crucial mistakes made in game one.

LeBron James says he "pretty much played the last three games with a broken hand" after injuring himself in frustration after Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

James exited the floor with four minutes left on the clock to a standing from the home crowd. Tonight, he addressed why he returned in 2014. "I hope that doesn't sound arrogant".
