Golden State Warriors: You’ve Got to Start Sometime

Chef Curry  Now introducing your 2015 NBA Finals Champions, THE CLEVELAND CAVALIERS!!! This is what many people expected to hear upon the conclusion of this years finals, but that is not the case.  Somehow, some way, little old Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors found a way to defeat Lebron James despite his historic performance.  Lebron averaged 35.8 ppg, 8.8 apg and 13.3 rpg in what was the greatest Finals performance in history, and has no hardware to show for it thanks to the Warriors.  This shows that when playing a team sport, you need to have a TEAM in order to win and you cannot rely on one person to do it all, and that is what something that the Warriors learned quickly.  The Warriors too have a leader that they turn to and that is Stephen Curry.  He averaged 26.0 ppg, 6.2 apg, and 5.2 rpg during this year’s NBA Finals. James accounted for 38% of the Cavaliers total points scored during this year’s NBA Finals, and that is quite a staggering fact.  Lebron doesn’t need to hear it from me, but I’m going to say it anyways… a true leader doesn’t just complete the task by himself and let his teammates coast alongside, but rather builds up those people around him while leading the pack at the same time.  People compare LEbron James to Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan more than they should, because to me I don’t see the comparison.  Athletically Lebron James is superior to most that have ever played the game, but he lacks that killer mentality that makes him stop at nothing short of winning.  This season showed that Steph Curry has that mentality, and if you ask me, he is more of a Kobe or MJ than Lebron will ever be.
