Wow! Warriors Win First NBA Title in 40 Years After Defeating Cleveland Cavaliers 105-97

In the words of Rihanna, “sometimes it takes a thousand tries to win.” Well, for the Golden State Warriors, it took 40 years for them to win an NBA title after their first win in 1975.

Daily Beast reports that the Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 105-97 in Game 6 of the NBA finals to take home their first NBA title in four decades.

Here is a summary of how the game went according to the report:

LeBron James hit 32 points, 18 rebounds, and nine assists, but it wasn’t enough to stop Stephen Curry, who put up 25 points, six rebounds and eight assists while NBA Finals MVP Andre Iguodala added 25 points to clinch the title Tuesday night at Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena. The Warriors came back to win the final three games in the series after the Cavs had taken a 2-1 lead. Iguodala, who beat out series favorite James, is the first Finals MVP to win without starting a single game in the regular season.

    ps James was never in the running for this year’s MVP. It was between Curry and Harden of the Houston Rockets

    Finally! If the Cavs had won, it would have been plastered everywhere because of “the King.”
    He did well. He dragged his team all the way but he couldn’t do it alone. KLove’s injury was a big loss to them earlier on in the season.

    Anyway, Steph Curry is awesome. His rise continues, The GS Warriors were the standout team all season and deserved to win.

    Iggy (Andre Iguodala) played a great game.

    Fantastic to see a team out of the normal ones win a championship.

Nearly can’t kill a bird but Hawks just ain’t doing it for me. I was never a fan of Cava & Oga Lebron made it worse for Mr too :))

    Curry and Iguodala….I swear it sounds so Nigerian. Congrats to GS. I like Lebron as a player buy I just cannot stand him as a person. Since Naija is out of the 2015 world cup (women), having a Nigerian represent here is just as good (does he even identify as Naija sef?)

    bellanaija, Steph Curry is the MVP and not Ighodala. please get your facts straight! James was never in the running for this year’s MVP it was between the baby faced assassin aka Curry and the bearded one aka James Harden of Houston Rockets. and post this comment cos you refused to post the first correct I made to this article earlier

      June 18, 2015 at 1:16 pm

      @akissi; BN doesn’t take corrections ooh. They will chew your comment when you try to correct them. That was how I made a correction on one of their post countless times but they refused correcting the post as well as my comment.
      The post was on who nominated senator ekewremadu; BN mentioned abiye sekibo former SSG to odili; while the actual person was Senator George sekibo.
      BN if you like chop this comment as well. I care less

    Nothing sexier to me than a man who genuinely loves God and this young man does not hide his love for God.

    Pls read clearly before you start commenting the article said NBA FINALS MVP not REGULAR SEASON MVP, and no where does it say James was in the running for the mvp( he came 3rd btw) so yes he was in the running but not a favourite except in the Series final
