LeBron James TROLLED by Klay Thompson ahead of NBA Finals Game 4

LeBron and the Cavaliers have played well to get to the finals but I feel this is the end of the road for them.

And the Warriors proved they can beat the Cavaliers.

Shaking off one of his worst career playoff performances, Golden State star Steph Curry scored 37 points including seven 3-pointers Friday night to lead the Golden State Warriors to a 108-85 victory over Cleveland and back-to-back National Basketball Association titles.

James had two MRIs during the series and wore a soft cast when he wasn't practicing or playing or in view of the media, sources said, so as not to give the Warriors a competitive advantage.

Yeah, good luck with that.

A majority of Curry's 37 points came from outside the 3-point arc.

But it was Warriors forward Kevin Durant who was named the finals' Most Valuable Player for the second consecutive year.

Golden State claimed the sixth crown in club history, matching the Chicago Bulls for third on the all-time list. Green, McGee and Andre Iguodala were defensive forces all night, tag-teaming James, while combining for 26 points, too.

The Cavaliers appeared to do everything right in this game.

"It's just about the journey, all season", Durant said. "The experience just helps".

"You guys like this brace, huh?"

Jay Dehmalo said most people "have no idea what we went through, and back then. nobody talked about anything". Despite the reaction to the obituary, Jay argued: "it really has helped us to finally get the last word".


Durant averaged 28.7 points, 10.7 rebounds and 7.5 assists per game in the series.

James was removed with 4:03 remaining and congratulated the Warriors before taking a seat on the bench.

It's the second Finals sweep of James' career, the first coming with the Cavaliers in 2007 against the San Antonio Spurs (also the most recent year any team was swept in the Finals).

Expected to win it all, and at times buckling under the burden, the Warriors succeeded about as spectacularly as possible.

It doesn't quite rise to the level of a war of words - these two teams spend a lot of time complimenting one another - but Stephen Curry took mild umbrage with something James said after Game 3. "Tomorrow I'll replay some plays and some moments, things of that nature".

The Cavaliers got back to within 11.

They built a lead as big as 13.

The Warriors were in the process of completing an 11-0 run.

Curry made his first three shots, including an off-balance 3-pointer when he was trying to draw a foul as he shot. He was 2-2 in four trips to the NBA Finals with Miami.

"The Finals brings the best out of you". "It tests you mentally and physically to get through these series".
