Predominantly a jump-shooting team, the Golden State Warriors won their first title in 40 years with 105-97 over the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 6 of the NBA Finals. Once again, Cleveland is held off from a professional championship of any sort. Warriors proved the nay-sayers wrong by winning as a team that relied upon the three-point shot throughout the NBA season and the NBA Playoffs.

Kevin Love is the best stretch 4 in the game right now. Many teams are trying to get Love out of Minnesota. Golden State Warriors are willing to give up one-half of the Splash Brothers, Klay Thompson. Andrew Bogut would be the Warriors’ rim-protector and Love will help Bogut on the boards.
