You read the reports coming out of the Warriors and players and coaches all give each other credit for sticking to a script and playing unselfish ball as a team to achieve a common goal..

Then compare to the stories coming out of Cleveland, the relationship between Lebron and Blatt... ISO ball play after play

It's not hard to see why the Warriors won the title and the Cavs/Lebron were embarrassed once again

No, it's not his fault, however the 6 Finals appearances and 5 straight Finals need to be put into context because that's clearly inflated. He sure hasn't surpased expectations winning just 2 and losing 4 of those Finals and James and the Cavs/Heat in the West in retrospect sure aren't making 6 Finals or 5 consecutive Finals.

Kerr = GOD level coach.
He took over Mark Jackson's already very talented team who (jackson) molded into what they've become.

Sad part is, I don't think any player on GSW team thanked Jackson for what he did for them. If they did, I didn't see it and apologize.

So you're saying LeBron is like Magic of the 80's but with much less talent and coaching around him?

I dislike him because he plays in the East. Gets a cakewalk to the finals since the Pistons and Magic, to a degree, went down. That lack of competition is completely unfair since it sends an all-time great to the finals every year. Further, the fact that he loses in the finals + always have all-stars on his team all the time just shows that if he were in the West he'd have so much more trouble getting to the Finals.

Also, makes me realize how little he has grown as a basketball player. He still only knows how to play a ball dominant, Bron or nothing, style of ball. He sucks at being a part of an offense. I wish he'd either get a real coach that made him play NBA style basketball, or get over to the West where he'd actually have to compete every year.

Maybe it is Durant's fault for not putting up more of a fight. Just feels like Bron has had a hand picked easy career compared to other legends. Even though Jordan basically cheated by having far and away the best supporting team at least he played some true greats with decently good teams.

Lebron beta'd to Kobe in the Olympics, beta'd to Wade in 2011 and just straight crumbled, had 1.5 good finals and decent to poor other finals. He someone managed to make joining a stacked Cavs team in the weak East into a pity party for him that he didn't have enough help. His delly friend destroyed the Hawks, the Bulls only true offensive big man was injury plagued, and somehow the story ended with people thinking Bron did something special this year.

Curry won the reg season MVP, set records for threes in the playoffs, had other-worldly efficiency on great #'s, was a 1st time champion, did it with a rookie coach, inexperienced teammates, and was one of the most clutch performers of recent memory in the playoffs. He hit so many big shots for the Dubs throughout each round. One of the most entertaining first time title runs I've ever seen when looking at it in hindsight. Only Dwayne Wade, as a perimeter player, had a more entertaining first time title run. As someone that didn't even get scholarship offers his story is truly awesome.

I'm glad summer is here though. Going to relax all summer with my blue and gold Mullin jersey on. We da bess

Only part of this post that is any good.
