The NBA Finals concluded Tuesday night, and the Golden State Warriors were crowned as champions of the hoops world.
Andre Iguodala was named Finals MVP, having helped the Dubs turn the series around after he was surprisingly inserted into the starting lineup.
Stephen Curry says this squad ranks right up there with the League’s other all-time greats.
Per the AP:
“We beat the first unit more times than they beat us, and I think it was by a landslide,” Iguodala said. […] So good, so deep that the MVP of the NBA Finals never started a game all season, the Warriors built the kind of squad that can compete for many NBA titles.
“He was great the entire series. But he saved this season for us,” Warriors forward Draymond Green said. “I always say Andre’s a pro’s pro. He’s a professional guy, and it showed, and that’s why he’s the MVP of this series, and that’s why we’re champions.”
They are good enough to do it again, provided they keep Green and Harrison Barnes once they are eligible for free agency, and if they can find a way to overcome the rugged Western Conference. Plenty of teams that looked great one year couldn’t do it the next on the stronger side of the NBA bracket. But not many of those teams had what these Warriors had, a team that ultimately won 83 games, more than any team other than Michael Jordan’s Bulls. […] “I think we definitely are a great team, and a team that should go down in history as one of the best teams from top to bottom,” Curry said. “We have a lot of things to be proud of this season.”
