WARRIORS SWEEP CAVALIERS

The Golden State Warriors beat the Cleveland Cavaliers last night 108-85 to complete a four-game sweep in the 2018 NBA finals. It was their third championship in the past four years.

For the second straight year Kevin Durant was named MVP of the finals.

“It’s not about who’s going to win MVP in the finals. It’s about let’s win championships together. You guys can write about MVP, we don’t care,” Steve Kerr said following the game when asked about the MVP in the finals.

My pet peeve is people talking about the “MVP.”  I’m glad Kerr addressed it. Basketball is a TEAM sport.

Kerr did mention post-game that the Warriors, “have a lot of talent,” They sure do but that talent plays together.

After the game, Draymond Green said, “the togetherness is why we win.”  Green is an amazing player – he doesn’t score a lot of points but he does all the little things.

“Always willing to give anything for the team. It’s never about me. Putting my body on the line every night. Doing whatever I can to help my guys out. I try to do that night in and night out,” added Green.

Cavaliers head coach, Ty Lue made a good point during his post-game press conference.

“Sometimes you can give everything you got and come up short.”

Congratulations to the Golden State Warriors.

DUNK ON DRAYMOND?

Dennis Smith Jr. of the Dallas Mavericks tried to dunk it on Draymond Green.

“Yeah, that s— ain’t happening,” Green said after the game. “This ain’t Summer League, bro. Not just gonna dunk on nobody. Better luck next time.

“Never. That ain’t happening. Come on, dude.”

Smith has hops. The rookie drove baseline trying to slam it over Green, only to be fouled by the former Saginaw High standout.

“I don’t know what he was talking about. He can’t say nothing. He fouled me. It doesn’t even make sense. I was just laughing on him. He’s rambling on about nothing. It ain’t like he blocked it. He’s just rambling and I laughed at him.”

Smith added…

“I’m not doing it just to let people know I’m not backing down. I’m just not backing down from nobody. That’s just how I am. All that extra stuff, I don’t really dabble with all that. That’s about it. I just handle myself accordingly.”
