So the Golden State Warriors won another NBA title
00:03
and it wasn't really that close.
00:05
In fact, there was such little drama
00:07
that just moments after it was over,
00:09
Stephen Curry was already talking about golf,
00:12
saying he can't wait to beat teammate Andre Iguodala
00:16
on the course again.
00:17
We're glad to see the former Gold Digest cover boy
00:20
has his priorities in place,
00:21
but since he's a scratch golfer, it's not really
00:24
a fair fight for Iguodala.
00:26
Then again, the entire NBA playoffs weren't a fair fight.
00:29
Only LeBron James' Cleveland Cavaliers could manage
00:32
winning a single game against this super team
00:35
assembled in the Bay Area.
00:37
But how could anyone question the Warriors
00:40
signing Kevin Duran after winning an NBA record
00:43
73 games last season?
00:45
He's one of the best players in NBA history,
00:47
and more importantly, he fit right into that locker room
00:50
because he's a golfer.
00:52
Well, sort of.
00:55
Steph, give him some lessons, will you?
00:58
Golf intersected with this year's finals
01:00
after game three as well, when Bubba Watson
01:02
strolled onto the court and interrupted
01:04
Curry's post game interview.
01:05
But Curry was cool with the two-time masters champ
01:08
saying he was looking forward to watching Watson
01:10
at this year's US Open.
01:12
And he and Duran and Iguodala and Coach Steve Curr
01:16
can now go watch the tournament in person if they please.
01:20
There's an advantage to closing out series early.
01:23
So this off season, enjoy all the golf you want, guys,
01:26
but please, for the sake of NBA fans everywhere,
01:29
don't sign any more super star free agents.
