The Warriors are looking for revenge for previous year after the Cavs made a historic comeback down 3-1, but ultimately, led by arguably the best player in the history of the NBA, LeBron James to win 4-3.
There's no correct way to build a championship-level roster in the National Basketball Association.
The Cavaliers' defense was a problem for most of the season.
For the past couple of years Curry and the Warriors have completely torn up the record books on shooting from deep. Kevin Love will have to guard Draymond Green.
ESPN is reporting that Durant is willing to take less money to stay in Golden State and help the Warriors keep other players.
Let's be honest, the biggest bull's eye is on Kevin Durant's jersey.
However, the 26-year-old who was undrafted out of Belmont is a part of what might just be the best team ever. Back in the 1960s and 1980s it was the LA Lakers and Boston Celtics who dominated the sport which created some of the most historic match-ups such as Wilt Chamberlain v Bill Russell or Larry Bird v Magic Johnson. My heart would love to see LeBron win again, my mind says Warriors find a way and do it in front of the home crow in game 7.
All seem to agree on the Golden State Warriors winning. It's the death lineup. If going big doesn't work, maybe Love at center does. If they can find a solution, they have a shot.
Stephen Curry: A two-time NBA MVP himself, the universally beloved player initially struggled to adjust to his new mega-teammate but now enters the Finals at the top of his game. Iguodala is not a starter, but he does play starter minutes.
Past year the Cavs and the Thunder were able to mitigate the destructiveness of the Curry-Draymond pick and roll by sticking a mobile big man on Draymond. Durant jumped ship to join the Warriors this offseason and was heavily criticized for it.
Can Someone On The Cavs Play Above Their Station?
In 2015, James carried the Cavaliers on his back when Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love went down with injuries. Between JR Smith, Kyle Korver, and Deron Williams, someone will have to come through when they are inevitably left open when Irving and James draw all the attention. Someone is going to have to step up.
"Our fans, they ride or die, no matter what's been going on", James said. The rest of their rotation was brought in mostly through free agency.
However, James is defending the title this time around. "If a game is close down the stretch, he can take it over".
From breaking long-held National Basketball Association records to being named the league's MVP, to leading his team to its third consecutive finals appearance, the Warriors sharpshooter has accomplished some fantastic feats throughout his career on the hardwood, leading many to ask, "Is there anything Steph can't do?" Both offenses have hit triple digits in every game this post-season and I would expect more of that in this series. It's not impossible, but it isn't likely. Sometimes I look to pass when I should look to score."It just shows you how fickle the two professions Mark and I chose after he got done playing are", Van Gundy said.
