Mike Brown's NBA Title With Warriors Came At Cavs' Expense (Literally)

Mike Brown's NBA Title With Warriors Came At Cavs' Expense (Literally)

Going into the 2017 Finals, there was no doubt the Warriors had superior talent after adding 2014 Most Valuable Player Kevin Durant to a 73-win team.

In fact, the series was the NBA's best rated finals since 1998 when Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls capped off their 1990's dynasty with a six-game win over the Utah Jazz.

Smith spent the past year taking shots at Kevin Durant for his somewhat controversial move from the Thunder to the Warriors.

"I think the focus, a lot of LeBron's business interests, his Hollywood aspirations, his media ventures are base out there, and I wrote this past year and said it and believed it: The minute he won that championship in Cleveland he was liberated to leave again". "I was anxious, I was jittery".

I want to like Durant so badly because he's just so frickin' good on the basketball court.

"She's seen me as a kid putting in work".

Those three plays earned them the reputation as the mentally tougher team against the Golden State Warriors.

The Warriors explored all of those options again in Game 5 when they put the finishing touches on the Cavaliers. He took the easy way, joined them and won Finals MVP honors with five games of 31 or more points, including 39 in the title-clincher. It might have required a ideal game to defend their championship, but with James averaging a triple-double in the Finals, that seemed possible.

Take some colourful papers and write some quotations about fatherhood and your dad with sketches or sparkle pens. Thomas said reflecting about his dad always helps him plan on how he can one day be a good dad, as well.

Despite all that firepower, there would be no dramatic NBA Finals comeback this season.

"I'm just excited to do something special", Curry said during the presentation of the Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy on Monday in Oakland after his team beat the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals.

He was the first player since Shaquille O'Neal in 2000 to score 30 or more points in five-straight finals games.

Lebron James scored 41 points and grabbed 13 rebounds and had 8 assists for the Cavs. Nothing should distract from what we were able to accomplish together and the different kind of ceremonies that have happened around championship-winning teams. "And at the end of the day, no matter what anybody says from now on, they can never take away from you being a champion". "But we prevailed, we're champions and it's awesome doing it on our home floor".

"I'm just happy for him".

"I told him we're tied up now and we're going to try to do this thing again but I'm going to celebrate this one tonight".

LeBron James may be the game's greatest player but the manner in which his Cleveland Cavaliers were dispatched in the NBA Finals on Monday may have signalled that his championship window has been slammed shut. I'd be honored to welcome the team to the U.S. Capitol. But you don't concern me. "I have no reason to put my head down".
