    4-2 was my original prediction before the series started... so I won't be wrong if that happens... but the way things have played out, I wouldn't be surprised to get to game 7. My gut says game 6 is most likely to be a close Cleveland win OR a blowout Golden State win.

    Interesting. I predict a modest GS spread, ten points or less.

    was a great game!

    Lebron should have won MVP though...

    He actually received 4 (out of 11) of the votes on the ballot. Curry didn't receive any which tbh isn't extremely surprising..I guess. But, I figured there's no way they would give it to a losing team player -- it just doesn't happen. (well actually...only in history once has it ever happened and that was Jerry West over 40 years ago)

    "Iguodala received seven of 11 votes on the MVP ballot (link), with Cleveland forward LeBron James receiving the other four." (SI.com - Warriors guard Andre Iguodala named NBA Finals MVP)

    This is also a good read... LeBron James's latest NBA Finals heartbreak shouldn't define his legacy (SI.com)



    Overall though this was a great series, and ultimately in the end the better team won. We could sit here an hash out all the "What ifs..." for the Cavs and how that may have changed the outcome...but it's all really a moot point now. :) ;)

    Congrats to the Warriors and especially Steve Kerr on a outstanding beginning to his coaching career, I'm really glad for him. :righton:

    It wouldn't surprise me to see the same matchup in next season's finals.

    I kind of expect okc to get there if they are healthy. Cleaves do will depend on fee agents. But that's quite probably IMHO.

    We got where I thought we would when the series started... but took a different path to get there. I'm fine with LeBron not being MVP. He is the MVP of his team and was the best player in the series... but he rejected the award before that game... and he would have felt embarrassed taking it after losing the series. I expect some in Cleveland would even have ripped him for accepting that award... so I think the voters did the only logical thing.
