The Golden State Warriors had a very Golden State Warriors problem this season: They were too good.
They are now the back-to-back NBA champions after crushing LeBron James and the other Cleveland Cavaliers, 108-85, on Friday night (June 9).
“It seemed like a dream. This feels more like reality,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “And I hope that doesn’t sound arrogant. It’s just that’s the talent we have, and that’s the experience we’ve gained. But it’s a very different feeling. It’s still euphoric, but three years ago was ‘I can’t believe this happened.’ And now it’s ‘I can definitely believe this happened.’ But it was hard, and it gets more and more difficult as you go.”
