Will the NBA Champion Warriors Visit the White House?


In a most attractive and poetic finish, the Warriors, who came into Monday night's game leading the Finals series 3-1, pulled off a flawless victory and won the game with a 9 point lead, leaving no doubt that they are the champions.

James played averaged a triple-double during the NBA Finals, but it was not enough to prevent the Cavaliers from losing in five games to the Warriors following Monday's 129-120 loss in Oakland.

The Golden State Warriors brought Kevin Durant to the Bay Area last summer for the express objective of winning an National Basketball Association title and erasing the memory of last year's collapse against Cleveland in the finals.

The Cavs narrowed the gap slightly in the third, with LeBron James hitting a game-high 41 points, but defensive breakdowns by Cleveland led to easy baskets late in the game for the Warriors as they sealed victory at the Oracle Arena in Oakland. He finished with averages of 33.6 points, 12.0 rebounds and 10.0 assists in the five-game series. Not surprisingly, he won the NBA Finals MVP award.

Golden State answered with a game-turning 27-4 run, slam dunks by Andre Iguodala and Draymond Green and three Durant 3-pointers spicing the spurt that produced a 60-45 Warriors lead.

He also added 8.2 rebounds and 5.2 assists a game.

"They can never take away you being a champion".

But Durant was quick to congratulate last year's champions. "But we prevailed, we're champions and it's fantastic doing it on our home floor".

"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".

He will be an unrestricted free agent in 2018 but no matter where James decides to play it is unlikely he can steer clear of a Warriors team positioned for greatness. I have no reason to look back at what I could have done or what I shouldn't have done or what I could have done better for the team.

Durant did indeed join a ready-made contender by teaming up with two-time reigning league MVP Stephen Curry on a team that won it all in 2015 and were runners-up a year ago after a season in which they had a record 73 wins in 82 games.
