With 2 titles, Finals MVP Kevin Durant gets the last word

He shared some quick thoughts about it after Game 4 of the NBA Finals was in the books on Friday, with the Warriors sweeping James and the Cavs.

The 2018 NBA Finals are over, and in predictable fashion, the Golden State Warriors steamrolled the Cleveland Cavaliers to win their third championship in the last four years.

With the 2017-18 National Basketball Association season in the books (congratulations to the Warriors on winning an impressive but inspiring championship over LeBron James and four other guys), the 2018-19 season pretty much starts right now. I got a teenage boy, a pre-teen and a little girl right now that wasn't around as well.

In a video clip that's now making its' way across social media, the proud father and husband is seen blocking out just about everyone (other than his sons) as he makes a beeline for the Cavs' locker room. "So I'm just trying to prove to myself that I could just stay in it for the long haul, and hopefully I continue to have some success".

While Curry was the star of the night, Kevin Durant also had a standout performance, picking up the first playoff triple double of his career.

It was the Warriors third NBA title in four straight NBA Finals - all against Cleveland.

"The Bay Area allows me to be who I am, as a city, to just blend in, and the team allows me to do the same thing", Durant said. Fresh off an unexpected run to the Eastern Conference Finals where it took the Cavaliers to seven games, Boston will have its two best players back next year when Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward return from season-ending injuries.

"Well, he's terrifying", Kerr said. "I let the emotions get the best of me". Durant scored 43 points in that game, including a 33-foot 3-pointer in the final minute to all but clinch the win for the Warriors.

"We'll have plenty of time over the summer to talk about what next year's going to look like and what it's going to take for us to get back to this stage next year. But to travel the world and meet different people, and go to different arenas and different cities and countries around the world, I'm just forever grateful for this opportunity". Over the course of his postgame press conference, James reiterated that he's still in "championship mode", a potential problem for a Cleveland team coming off a sweep to the NBA's most talented team. He can become a free agent on July 1, and his future is uncertain. And if Durant going to Golden State hasn't been great for league-wide parity, it has quite obviously been great for the Warriors.

"Next year, we'll think about that later", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. Does it? We won two championships.
