For Warriors, it’s only about winning championships

The Golden State Warriors won Game 4 of the NBA Finals Friday night, beating the Cleveland Cavaliers 108-85 to claim their third championship in four years and sweep the finals 4-0.

The similarities saw the Golden State Warriors defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers to win the Larry O'Brien trophy, just like the 2015 champs did previous year over the 2016 winners.

It was mildly surprising the hardware didn't go to Stephen Curry, who rebounded from a subpar shooting performance by leading all players with 37 points, to go along with six rebounds and four assists in the Game 4 rout.

On Friday, the Cavaliers clawed back from an 11-point deficit before pulling in front on a slam dunk from James near the midway mark of the second quarter, but it was just a matter of time before the Warriors took over. The 29-year-old superstar took the honor after putting together a triple-double to help complete the sweep for the Golden State Warriors in their third National Basketball Association championship in four years.

"I let the emotions get the best of me and pretty much played the last three games with a broken hand", James said during a press conference after the Cavs' Game 4 loss to the Warriors.

Durant's competition was stiff and two-pronged, between his teammate Steph Curry and opponent LeBron James. "We've never done that in our 4 years, sweep the finals".

Curry expects Cleveland to go for broke after James unleashed 51 points in Game 1 and a triple double in Game 3 but lost each time.

Durant is one of 30 players to win the award. He can opt out of his contract and become a free agent next month. "I just appreciate what he's done for us this season". The man is a social media savant, and will use his skills to the best of his abilities.

When Curry, who rejoined the lineup in for the final seconds of the half, hit a deep three-pointer to finish the quarter strong and nudge Golden State's halftime lead to 61-52, the game was essentially over. "So I don't have an answer for you right now as far as that".

For his part, 11-time NBA Champion and five-time MVP victor Russell considered it to be a non-issue and was quick to defend Durant. "It won't be Cleveland or Golden State going". While Cleveland has made the Finals each of the past four years, he's often had to carry the team; his 34-point scoring average in the Finals easily topped Shaquille O'Neal's record 28-point average in 1995, ESPN reported. I just appreciate what he's done for us this season. We can't get enough of this feeling.

"The one thing that I've always done is consider my family, understanding especially where my boys are at this point in their age", James said. The site's sources explained that James was angry about the last minute overturned offensive foul on the Warriors' Kevin Durant that turned into a blocking foul on James.

The biggest question here that I don't think people are noticing is how long is it going to take before James actually sees this tweet?
