NBA The Finals 2017: Golden State campione come nel 2015

Kevin Durant è riuscito nel suo intento, ha trionfato con la maglia dei Golden State Warriors e si è definitivamente consacrato sul palcoscenico della lega, la più bella ed entusiasmante dell'intero pianeta.

Nel momento di maggiore difficoltà, quando i Cavs stavano prendendo consapevolezza di potercela fare, è arrivata la mareggiata sotto forma di parziale che in un attimo ha portato la DubNation sul +15.

Durant è un vero e proprio fiume in piena che fatica a trattenere le emozioni e al tempo stesso esprime parole di forte stima anche per il suo grande avversario diretto in queste Finals, LeBron James: " Ho tantissimo rispetto per lui che è il modello che ho sempre voluto raggiungere. Speriamo non se la sia sentita Klay Thompson, ma... altro che Splash Brothers, la nuovacoppia d'oro (di Golden State!) dell'NBA è quella formata da Durant e Curry!

La frase di Kevin Durant è sintomatica di quanto sia rispettata l'etica del lavoro di James, che lo ha portato sino agli apici della storia e gli ha permesso di dare credibilità a una serie contro dei Warriors che hanno collezionato il miglior record della storia dei playoffs (16 contro il 15-1 dei Lakers 2000) e che erano palesemente fuori scala per qualsiasi avversaria.

Golden State Warriors Campioni NBA 2017, Kevin Durant (39 in 40 mins, con 20 tiri, aggiungendo anche 7 rebs e 5 ass) MVP delle Finals 2017, rispettivamente titolari del Trofeo Larry O'Brien e del Trofeo Bill Russel. KD ha avuto il merito di calarsi in punta dei piedi nel sistema più efficace della NBA, quello in cui tutti, da Steph Curry all'ultimo dei rookie, sono convinti che il successo di squadra venga prima di quello individuale. Non si è trattato, nella serie, di miracolo sfiorato, ma di coriacea resistenza: l'enfasi data da molti (da troppi) alle prestazioni e alla solitudine di LBJ è stata secondo noi eccessiva non perché il rendimento di James non meriti ammirazione assoluta, ma perché ha fatto apparire la serie come un miracolo sfiorato da parte dei Cavs, i quali, invece, non sono mai, davvero MAI stati meno di 100 miglia lontani dal Titolo. "Dovremmo rifarlo" ha detto KD al 23 di Cleveland dopo gara-5. Per essere sicuro di vincere e così ha vinto. Ha raggiunto una tripla doppia di media, non si riesce a fermarlo. Non è accettabile sentire ancora chi lo apostrofa come perdente. 129-120, 4-1 nella serie e stagione NBA che giunge al termine. Anzi, lo sta già facendo.
