It was three days ago that the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals. While that may seem like a long time, the reality is that Sal and Steiny needed a cooling off period.
After two days of hot takes, quick reads and fast opinion, Castaneda and Steinmetz take a more measured approach in their look-back. Just how epic of a collapse was it by the Golden State Warriors? Well, you could argue it was the biggest collapse in Finals history. You could also make a case that the Cavaliers staged a one-of-a-kind comeback.
As the cliche goes, it's probably a combination of both, but Steinmetz wonders if the Bay Area media and national media are giving the Warriors a pass on any criticism. The boys wonder how LeBron James would have been lambasted had he played like Stephen Curry. But Curry has largely escaped criticism. Or has he? The boys discuss.
Despite the Warriors' soul-crushing defeat, Steinmetz also makes a point to credit the classy and admirable behavior from GSW players.
