The NBA season is finally over and the Golden State Warriors are the champions for the 2016/2017 season. After a long and an exhausting season, that actually turned to be a historic one for the Warriors, Golden State celebrated their second title in three years. They beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 4-1 in the Finals and proved that they are the most dominant team in the NBA right now, and no team is actually even close to them.

Led by Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry, the Warriors finished the regular season with the best record in the league at 67-15 and won the title with a near-perfect 16-1 record in the playoffs.

Kevin Durant was named Finals MVP after averaging 35.2 points, 8.2 rebounds and 5.4 assists per game while shooting 55% from the field. But even with all that said, it was LeBron James who was the central figure of this year's Finals.

Even Kyrie was impressed

James was nothing short of spectacular during this whole season, but especially in the Finals where he took it to another lever. In five games against the Golden State Warriors in the Finals, LeBron averaged a triple-double by recording 33.6 points, 12.0 rebounds and 10.0 assists per game. He was efficient shooting the ball as he shot 56% from the field and 39% from the three-point line. Impressive for a guy that's in his 14th season in the league.

His teammate, Kyrie Irving, knows how great of a player LeBron is, and when asked about James' performance after Game 5 loss this is what Irving had to say: "I think that some people would say that he's on the line of greatness. But that guy is way over. Man, he's freaking awesome."

Irving still learning

Even though LeBron carried the load for the Cavaliers in this year's Finals, Kyrie Irving had nothing to be ashamed of himself.

He averaged 29.4 points and 4.4 assists per game in the five games against the Warriors and his 40 points in Game 4 win were huge. He proved once again why he's one of the best point guards in the league, but even so, he still has plenty of room for improvement. Playing with LeBron James will surely help as Kyrie understands the importance of having a guy like that on your team.

Kyrie added that he believes if he and LeBron continue to play with one another, the sky is the limit. He also said that he learned a lot from him and that he will continue to do so. This is what Irving said at the end of his interview, "I couldn't be more proud of that guy. He left it all out there on the floor, and to average a triple-double in the freaking Finals, man, add that to the LeBron long list that everyone keeps forgetting."
