Golden State won the NBA Championship in 5 game, which means that the Cavaliers lost in 5 games (obviously). Many know how I felt about the whole series, and how it was a bad thing for the Warriors and Cavaliers to rematch, all of that is here. Anyways, the NBA Final has come, and gone, and now, what is next for these two teams.
Can Golden State keep the team intact
Golden State has one of the most talented rosters, arguably the most talented. With Stephan Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, etc., the Warriors have a lot of good players, which is a good thing (of course). However, whenever there are good players, that usually means high paychecks (which is not so good). This year, Stephan Curry is a free agent (cue in the alarm), and like the Golden State Warriors said, “We will do anything to keep Curry.” If Curry is smart, he will want to become at least the top ten paid, if not the highest, in the entire league. Depending on how this goes, it could hurt the Warriors. KD’s contract is a free agent next year, and Klay Thompson the year after, so they have their work cut out for them to try, and keep this talented roster.
A Clear Vison for the Cavaliers
The Cavaliers also have a talented roster too. With LeBron, Love, and Irving, the Cavaliers have a solid team also. All three of those names are under contract for at least the next two seasons, or three seasons. So the Cavaliers have their main pieces intact for a while. However, there have been rumors on the Cavaliers trading away one or two of these guys for some young, new blood. They have already won the Finals once, and have made it there three straight times, so they have already accomplished the main goal. So the Cavaliers may start looking to the long term. After all, LeBron is in his thirties, and Love is close to it. The Cavaliers need to decide if they want to make a run at another Championship for the next couple years, or whether to look 5 or 6 years down the road from now. This offseason for the Cavaliers will be one of trying to figure out there vision of the future.
Either way, these teams will be good for a while. So no matter what they do (unless Curry goes somewhere else, than you can expect another article) these teams are pretty set for the time being.
