A season full of intrigue and drama - not all confined to the court - ended in familiar fashion, as the Warriors overcame the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Finals to clinch their third title in four seasons.
Here's six moves the Cavs should make to return to the NBA Finals in 2019. Curry's teammate, Kevin Durant, who scored 20 points including a triple-double in the fourth game, was named the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the Finals. We'll always have LeBron James defying impossible odds on our behalf to vanquish a 3-1 lead. He spent the final minutes of the game on the bench, perhaps contemplating what went wrong. He showed up to the postgame press conference Friday with a cast on his hand.
"We put in as many teams as he could possibly go to and raised the Cavaliers, thinking he won't go there", Westgate sports book manager and National Basketball Association oddsmaker Jeff Sherman said. Looking at this playoff journey, we knew it wasn't going to be as easy as past year.
Will LeBron leave the Cavaliers? The Houston Rockets and Philadelphia 76ers - James' two leading suitors - are next at 7-2. LeBron, though, is keeping his cards close to his chest.
"I mean, I have no idea at this point", James said later. Understanding especially where my boys are at this point in their age.
"I think maybe the greatest testament to LeBron is that five years ago he was one of the top-five players of all time", Kerr said. So sitting down and considering everything - my family is a huge part of whatever I've chose to do in my career, and they'll continue to be that.
Act IV between the Warriors and Cavs featured a drama-filled and controversial Game 1.
"We all want something that's bigger than ourselves", Durant said of the Warriors. Set the tone for us nicely, and everybody else kind of filled in. "Getting up every day, going to work with these guys, it's unbelievable".
Klay Thompson (L) and JaVale McGee (R) start celebrations midway through the third quarter. Warriors, who usually take their game some notches higher in the third, outscored the Cavs 25-13 with a barrage of three-pointers.
James struck for 51 points in the opener, the fifth-best game total in finals history but it was a post-game punch out of frustration, into a blackboard according to ESPN, that caused the injury.
Sitting there, bags of ice on his knees, James looked as though the miles of 15 seasons had caught up to him.
Then the league's best team tightened the screws on Cleveland in the third quarter, outscoring the Cavs 25-13 and prompting Golden State fans to begin those drawn-out "War-eee-orrss" chants that provide a flawless musical accompaniment to their 3-point barrages.
England were in the ascendancy and Rashford was exciting the Yorkshire crowd with a number of flashy touches and silky skills. We have only taken two (warm-up games) as we had some players in the FA Cup final and a couple in the Champions League final.
Where in the world is Melania Trump? "She's doing great", her spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham told Newsweek in an email Friday. Trump is scheduled to join the president Monday in hosting a reception, closed to the press, for Gold Star families.
California's unusual primary system allows the top two primary candidates to advance to the general election, regardless of party. It also leaves Republicans with a dilemma: Promoting the tax law could alienate independents, not to mention Democrats.
Just two years ago, Golden State were in the same position: up 2-0 in the finals after crushing victories over the Cavs . In new footage, LeBron James' reaction to his team's late-game gaffe is revealed - and it's less than favorable.
But the hard-left party seems unlikely to gain major influence over Sanchez, who is keen to win back centrist voters. A Spanish court dealt a huge setback to the Popular Party last week, putting Rajoy under the microscope.
No one was going to stand in Washington's pursuit of a Cup - not even Vegas, which gave its opponents everything it had in Game 5. Since the Coach's Challenge did not result in the original call being overturned, the Washington Capitals forfeit their time-out.
The president also showed unusual politeness, seeing Kim Yong-chol, a former spy chief, off as he departed in a auto . President Donald Trump and Kim, the logistics of which are now being ironed out for a June 12 summit in Singapore.
Cecchinato won on his fourth match point by hitting a backhand victor down the line as Djokovic tried to serve and volley. And Djokovic woke up, blazing through the third set as Cecchinato looked out of sorts.
Yet the cumulative effect on multiple journeys adds up, and we have felt that this year. "I think that was mostly it". The Warriors also have above-average role players in 2015 Finals MVP Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston.

Some of our planet's earliest organisms may have been methanogens - microbes that eat organic molecules and exhale methane gas. It should take methane several hundred years to break apart in the presence of UV light, but that's not what happened on Mars.

In round 2 in their Eastern Conference Semifinal series against the Toronto Raptors, the Cavaliers swept them, defeating them 4-0. But I think having guys that get so excited about a good play, a good block or a good rotation or a good shot or dagger shot.
