Ever since LeBron James [VIDEO]came back to Cleveland in 2014, the NBA hasn't been much competitive as it's been only about two teams dominating rest of the league. LeBron and his #Cleveland Cavaliers played against the #Golden State Warriors in each of the last three NBA Finals, and it seems that it could happen again next year. The Warriors won two of those finals while the Cavaliers won their first NBA championship in 2016.

While these two teams put on a great show in the first two years, especially in 2016, this year's NBA Finals series was far from interesting. The Warriors, who were favorites to win it all, entered the series after sweeping their previous three opponents.

On the other side, the Cavaliers suffered only one loss up to that point. However, Cleveland got a reality check in the final series as they were obliterated by their opponent.

#Draymond Green, the Warriors forward, talked about the series, saying that Golden State should have swept the Cavaliers.

Draymond Green wanted a sweep

Golden State Warriors ended the series in five games, finishing the playoffs with a 16-1 record, which is the best record in the history of NBA playoffs. The Warriors surpassed the 15-1 record the Los Angeles Lakers set in 2001, becoming the greatest playoff team ever.

However, Draymond Green is not happy about how the series ended. The forward wanted to sweep the Cavaliers and he believes that the Warriors should have just done that. “They didn’t stand a f**king chance," Draymond told Clay Skipper of GQ.

"It pissed me off we didn’t sweep them, though.”

It is true that the Warriors had a complete control over the series and their only loss came in Game 4. The Cavaliers ended up breaking the NBA Finals record for most three-pointers made in a game with 24. That was their only win of the series as Golden State won the title on their home court just a few days later. At the end, Cleveland needed a record-breaking performance to win just one game against the Warriors. "They don’t come out and hit twenty-four threes and they’re swept," Green said. "And that’s the second best team in the world."

Another rematch?

Cleveland Cavaliers improved their roster [VIDEO] over the summer and they will be more competitive next year. While the Warriors are still a better team, Cleveland will at least have a chance of beating them and winning another championship.

While the Warriors could face some obstacles in the West, it is almost safe to say that the Cavaliers will make it to their fourth consecutive NBA Finals.
