For those that might not be familiar with the Golden State Warriors, let us start by giving you the Wikipedia page on them:
And the first paragraph here for those that are in a hurry:
I wanted to use the The Mercury News for the main story, but that site loads so much when you access it, I don't think it is polite to give you that link.The Golden State Warriors are an American professional basketball team based in the San Francisco Bay Area in Oakland, California. The Warriors compete in the National Basketball Association (NBA) as a member of the league's Western Conference Pacific Division. The Warriors play their home games at the Oracle Arena in Oakland. The Warriors have reached ten NBA Finals, winning six NBA championships in 1947, 1956, 1975, 2015, 2017, and 2018. Golden State's six NBA championships are tied for third-most in NBA history with the Chicago Bulls, and behind only the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers.
Instead, we'll give you a site that is a little more friendly, even if they are writing from above the border.
Dub Dynasty: Warriors sweep LeBron, Cavs for 2nd straight title
And the first part of their story, for those still in a hurry.
.Golden State. Golden still.
Stephen Curry scored 37 points, NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant added 20 and a triple-double and the Warriors stamped themselves a dynasty after winning their second straight title and third in four years Friday night, 108-85 over the Cleveland Cavaliers to complete a sweep and perhaps drive LeBron James from his home again to chase championships.
Overcoming obstacles all season long, the Warriors were not going to be denied and won the fourth straight finals matchup against Cleveland with ease.
"This is so hard to do and doing it three out of four years is incredible," guard Klay Thompson said.
It was the first sweep in the NBA Finals since 2007, when James was dismissed by a powerful San Antonio team in his first one. His eighth straight appearance didn't go well either, and now there's uncertainty where the superstar will play next.
