Another NBA season has come to an end with an unexpected champion, if we meet the expectations of the championship start: The Golden State Warriors won their four titles, after a few years’ journey, marked by injuries to their top players. But the incredible three formed by Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green overcame all obstacles and took the championship ring, having already won in 2015, 2017 and 2018.
In the final, out of the top seven, the Warriors even lost 2-1 and many believed the Bolton Celtics would leave the Los Angeles Lakers, winning their 18th title, but Stephen Curry, the player who scored three times in history. of the NBA, did not stop there and tried to score another 34 points in the sixth game, which his team won by 103-90, at the Celtics legend pavilion. So far, the Lakers and Celtics are left with 17 wins in the world’s most important tournament, basketball.
The San Francisco team’s three wonderful teams began to be formed in 2009, when the best ‘trip list’ in history arrived on the team. Two other pavilion players, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green, would join Curry in 2011 and 2012, and set the gold standard for the Warriors.
If it is true that in 2019 many predicted the end of those incredible three, due to a series of injuries, it is certain that this year, despite not having a good qualifying phase, the team reached a decisive stage in form. For the Spanish daily Marca newspaper, which is closely following the competition even with the number of Spaniards playing in the NBA, the Warriors and Curry touched the sky with this victory. And, in the championship ring, Curry added the MVP trophy, the most valuable player in the final, something he has never achieved. According to the Spanish daily newspaper, Curry portrayed himself “without form and entering into the history of the NBA’s untouchables”.
Considering that it is the team that plays the most modern basketball, the Warriors fearlessly risk three-point shots and set the tone of the game which is very difficult to follow.
Back then there was a tough time for the Lakers, where ‘seniors’ Anthony Davis, Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony and Dwight Howard were disappointed, after failing to keep up with LeBron James who could not die. The Brooklyn Nets, led by Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, who denies Covid-19, and James Harden, were disappointed and did not reach the final stage of the competition. The new season will see a lot of team change, but Dallas Mavericks of Luka Doncic and Milwaukee Bucks of Giannis Antetokounmpo will have their say.
