Steve Kerr predicted Warriors' Finals sweep during Houston series

Steve Kerr predicted Warriors' Finals sweep during Houston series

A few short moments after his Golden State Warriors swept the Cleveland Cavaliers in an NBA Finals series that ended 4-0, head coach Steve Kerr kept things frank about what he expected the outcome of this series to be.

LeBron James #6 of the Miami Heat looks on during a game against the Dallas Mavericks at American Airlines Arena on January 2, 2013 in Miami, Florida. I don't think anybody's even anxious about that type of stuff.

The Warriors could very well have been celebrating their fourth consecutive title had they not done the unthinkable in 2016 when, after a record-setting 73-win regular season, they became the first team to squander a 3-1 lead in the Finals. "To carry this team the way he did all season and leading by example, it's just a testament to his character and who he is as a person and a player". The way we played, the calls that were made throughout the course of that game, and I had emotions that the game was taken away from us.

When it comes to ratings, there was also a difference that might sting for the Disney-owned net and the league nearly more than the second loss in a row will for now-free agent James. This year seems so different, though.

There is some history motivation for next season.

There may not be an National Basketball Association player whose name has popped up more in trade rumors over the last few years than Cavaliers forward Kevin Love.

"That's probably the longest shot of it happening", Sherman said of Miami. "Any question that kind of talks about the future and whatnot, you don't want to cheat the moment".

Strap up ladies and gentlemen, it's going to be a wild summer.

"I really just am happy to be a champ again. It ultimately will come down to me".

Speculations have been at an all-time high regarding the star player leaving the team he put so much work into.

Durant becomes the 11th player to win Finals MVP twice, joining six-time victor Michael Jordan, three-timers Magic Johnson, Shaquille O'Neal, Tim Duncan and LeBron James, and two-timers Kobe Bryant, Larry Bird, Hakeem Olajuwon, Willis Reed and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

Also, it's highly unlikely that the Cavaliers will consider trading LeBron James for a package centered on Hassan Whiteside.

According to the outlet, Kerr said that in the past, the Warriors "weren't fearful" of James' shooting ability but they "were fearful of his power and his penetration and his passing". He set out to win a championship for Cleveland and he did just that.
