- Warriors cap sweep of Cavaliers for second straight NBA title
- Kevin Durant repeats as Most Valuable Player of NBA finals
- Soon a free agent, LeBron James expected to leave Cavaliers
Early Saturday morning, Kevin Durant sat in a room beneath the Quicken Loans Arena stands. Before him sat the golden trophy given to the Most Valuable Player of the NBA finals, an award he has now won twice in a row, and said he could care less about having. His shirt was soaked, he smelled of champagne. He was happy.
His Golden State Warriors had just won the NBA championship, sweeping the Cleveland Cavaliers with a 108-85 Game 4 victory earlier on Friday night. It was their third title in four years, and their second in a row since a Warriors contingent convinced him to leave the Oklahoma City Thunder to build a selfless dynasty built on trust rather than fame.
