Beef Alert! The Game Blasts LeBron, Says Jordan and Kobe are Better

The Warriors used a 28-4 flurry in the second quarter to take a lead they never relinquished, then relied on the scoring of Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry down the stretch to hold off the Cavaliers en route to a 129-120 victory Monday night, claiming their second National Basketball Association championship in seasons.

With a strong likelihood that next year's National Basketball Association season will play out much like the last three - with the Warriors and Cavaliers marching to the finals once again - there are increasing National Basketball Association trade rumors surrounding the Cavs and their intention to land Paul George.

He scored 39 last night and became the first player since Shaquille O'Neal in 2000 to score 30 or more points in five straight Finals games.

It was another gruelling season for James, who posted a game-high 41 points on Monday.

"I knew it was going to be a battle I just tried to challenge him - you can't stop the guy".

Durant has said that his decision not to play for the D.C. team had nothing to do with the fans or the city.

The Warriors have enough firepower to put together a similar run with Durant on the bench.

Durant was named the Most Valuable Player of the NBA Finals on Monday after claiming an elusive NBA championship over the Cleveland Cavaliers. "He's one of the best professionals I've ever been around". If Love had gotten hit by Durant the same way and hadn't complained, which Durant did, he made them go over and look at it, would it have been a flagrant foul?

"I left everything on the floor every game", James said after averaging a triple-double in his eighth Finals.

James figures to play at this level for at least four more years, darkening the fates of any other contender in the conference. "I thought when we got healthy, we got our mind right, we stayed the course, and once we got to the Playoffs, we really performed". "You just pick yourself back up and you keep pushing and you keep going".

Reigning two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry had himself quite the series as well, posting 26.8 points, eight rebounds and 9.4 assists a game, counting his 34-point, 10-assist line in the Game 5 closeout win.

Did LeBron have a case for Finals MVP?: This may be a stretch with how dominant Kevin Durant was.

In fact, Lue was so proud of his team's effort throughout the NBA Playoffs that admittedly, he broke down in the locker room while addressing the players following the Game 5 loss. "So we will see, but I will get away from the game a little bit". "But one thing I know about LeBron James, though, he'll probably be back in the gym the start of July getting ready for next season".
