Great article man. Good luck as you continue your career.

Speaking to my mental health struggles in sport

That’s it for me. Pleasure covering what ended up being the last game of the 2018 NBA Finals. Shoutout to The Roar’s great Scott Pryde for holding it down the previous three games.

Game 4/pseduo-series report will be filed soon. Thank you for following along. Hope to keep connected with you Roarers during what should be an unprecedentedly incredible 2018 offseason.

Goodbye for now!

Only six times has a player gone back-to-back finals MVP, per Doris Burke.

Add Durant to the list.

Postgame ceremony underway.

The 2017-18 Golden State Warriors are champions. GM Bob Meyers and staff have an awful lot to be proud of. Say what you will, but either last or this year’s GS team is the best of all time.

As I said in my preview, I said the Cavs would need to be perfect to achieve victory – they were anything but.

Congrats to Golden State.

LeBron’s averages in the finals:

Celebrations are beginning on the bench from Golden State. Durant and Green embracing each other.

Things keep getting worse for Cleveland.

Since this game is over – lets go over some stats thus far.

Q4 8′

Miss by Korver rebounded by Durant. Timeout on the court.

Welp, my prediction of Cavs by 3 is looking pretty off. Still shocked that the Cavs couldn’t help LeBron for just one victory in this series.

Unless we see a never in the history of sports type effort, the Warriors are looking like they will capture their third championship in four years.

Q3 0:00

Barely anything to report from the end of third other than… Warriors.

As Mike Breen just said, Cavs scored just 13 points in the third. Nothing like the Warriors in the third.
