LeBron may be “KING” on the basketball court, but at the end of the night Tuesday, he was not the King on the court, nor was his team.

The Golden State Warriors won the 2015 NBA Finals title, proving they all most definitely deserved to be there. Actually, if anyone did deserve that title, it was them. Golden State enters the franchise’s first finals appearance in 40 years. Now that’s some motivation coming from the whole team.

But the guys who really stole the show for the boys in blue were the SPLASH BROTHERS! Obvi.

The warriors haven’t won an NBA title since 1975 and without these guys they wouldn’t have gone as far as they did.

If you didn’t know, these guys can shoot… from anywhere. Pretty sure some of Curry’s buckets were straight up coming from the parking lot. And after that NBA Finals performance, there’s no doubt  Curry will go down in history for his 3-point precision. Curry ended the series with an outstanding 156 points for the series, with 37 points in Game 5. Thompson ended with 95 points, scoring 34 of them in Game 2.

And naturally, it wouldn’t be like LeBron not to break some records during the Finals. LeBron scored the most points of any player through the first three games of the NBA Finals with 123 points. And let’s talk about his actual Game 3 performance. This was the first ever 40-point, 12-rebound, 8-assist, 4-steal NBA Finals game since steals were first recorded in 1973-74.

The warriors haven’t won an NBA title since 1975 and without the splash brothers they wouldn’t have been able to keep up with LeBron, however there was another name on the court that stood loud and clear for the warriors. Andre Iguodala.

Now, with the Golden State Warriors winning the NBA title, you would think it only makes sense to name a Warrior MVP, but Iguodala is definitely a debatable call- not to say he didn’t perform off the charts for himself during the Finals. After coming off the bench for the beginning of the series, Iguodala dominated on the court throughout the series getting 98 points, scoring 25 in Game 6. But let’s be real, he probably won MVP because he has the same birthday as me, January 28th, duh.

Congrats to Golden State on the Title and an even bigger congrats to one of our own SM Eagles- Klay Thompson for achieving this milestone!

Cheers up for you boys!
