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.
