NBA Finals most-watched Finals since Michael Jordan's last championship

NBA Finals most-watched Finals since Michael Jordan's last championship”

OAKLAND In a tightly called Game 5 of the NBA Finals, it was a no-call involving Kevin Durant that helped the Golden State Warriors pull away from the Cleveland Cavaliers.

They brought in Kevin Durant, one of the best three players in the league who was also hungry for a championship.

TAKING AIM | Gold State Warriors and Kevin Durant success just doesn't sit right. Now we are left to an offseason of people wondering just how long this dynasty could last.

Lebron James has had to take a lot of criticism in his career and did so in a big way when he moved to the Miami Heat to form what was known as "the big three". "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".

KD continued to play like an MVP in Game 5 by scoring 39 points, seven rebounds, and five assists in the series clincher.

But his historic statistical performance doesn't even tell the whole story of his impressive run this season. The Warriors new star quickly gelled with the old ones, and his addition was about as seamless as it could have possibly been. They believe that it destroys the balance and competitiveness in the National Basketball Association. The Thunder began burning jerseys of Durant and the fans turned on him, kind of like LeBron in Cleveland after his infamous "decision" back in 2010. He averaged a triple-double (33.6 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists) during the series. The Warriors-Cavaliers formula of dominance is working. We were the most disciplined team all year, we preached teamwork and togetherness all season, and it's hard to do that with a bunch of egos in the league, and we peaked at the ideal time.

Durant said the Rihanna dustup - Durant appeared to stare her down after he hit a late three-pointer in Game 1 - was a personal highlight during the Finals.

James did, however, say he believed the Cavaliers would try their best to compete. Finals MVP, 4-1, world champions.

- The Warriors averaged 119.3 points per game throughout the playoffs. Andre Iguodala, who was the MVP in the 2015 NBA Finals for the Golden State Warriors, was huge off the bench for the squad by contributing 20 points.
