Yes, the Golden State Warriors won yet another NBA championship -- their third in the last four years. But honestly, what can you do?
What can LEBRON do? What could he have done?
Yes, he went off for more than 30+ points in more than one Game of this year's Finals, but he still fell short. However, we can't put that blame on him -- it's on his team.
LeBron is the literal definition of "carrying," and he can only carry his team for so long.
He's been carrying his team for the entire season and, not to bash on them, but without him, they would've gone nowhere this season. And honestly, that's not even bashing on them, that's just me being truthful.
Like, yes, they have some shooters like Kyle Korver, Kevin Love, and J.R. Smith, but with these players... it's like a gamble -- especially with J.R. Smith.. you cannot fight me on this one.
For the Warriors, if Stephen Curry was having a bad game, then Klay Thompson was going at it; if Thompson was having a bad game, then Kevin Durant was going at it; if KD was having a bad game, then Draymond Green was going at it; if Green was having a bad game, then Andre Iguodala was going at it, and the list just goes on and on.
The Warriors didn't just have a starting line-up, they also had a bench, and that makes all the difference. If you do not have players that can -- at least -- decently perform in the rotation, then you're going to have a tough time. There are substitutions for a reason, and Cleveland was struggling with that missing component.
So, the Finals aren't rigged. Golden State is just a 73-win team who added a Kevin Durant.
And then Cleveland had a LeBron James and inconsistent J.R. Smith, Kyle Korver, Kevin Love, Tristan Thompson, and Rodney Hood and George Hill who tried as hard as they could. Then you have Larry Nance Jr. who couldn't get his shot together (sorry Larry).
Honestly, LeBron is probably going to leave Cleveland -- and it breaks my heart saying that -- but at least when (or if... I have a little bit of hope) the Finals won't be Warriors vs Cavaliers again.... or so we pray.
