Golden State Warriors' Kevin Durant celebrates with the trophy after the Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 108-85 in Friday's Game 4 of the NBA Finals to win the NBA championship in Cleveland.
Act IV between the Warriors and Cavs featured a drama-filled Game 1.
While the National Basketball Association is not entirely immune to upsets, it is hard to see another team solving a Warriors squad which boasts an offense that rivals the greatest in the league's history.
Television ratings for the game itself tells us a story of a general public that largely tuned it out. Durant was named the Finals MVP. By the time they reached the Finals, it was clear that the Cavaliers didn't stand a chance at defeating them four times in a seven-game stretch. Surely, the defense of Andre Iguodala against James will be the luxury of the Warriors again. It's just that's the talent we have, and that's the experience we've gained.

And while James said he's still unsure what he will do when he can opt out his contract and hit the free agent market this summer, the 4-time MVP provided his most thorough insight to date regarding his upcoming decision.
Plus, Golden State will get better.
"Then it will ultimately come down to me, and so we'll see what happens". The change now allows teams to sign players to five-year deals up until they are 38 years old.

Most likely, James and the Cavaliers would need to agree to a sign-and-trade to Houston, which is what James did when he went to Miami in 2010.
"We all want something that's bigger than ourselves", Durant said after the win on Friday night.
"But I want him to be happy and want him to know that we want him as long as he wants to be here".
"We've got a lot of three-time, two-time champs in there, and we'll have plenty of time in our lives to discuss that later", Curry said.
