The meme makers can’t get enough of Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors, utterly destroying James Harden & the Houston Rockets in what looks more and more likes a resounding knockout, or in NBA words, a sweep.
The Warriors won by 35 points. They’ve had great games in this postseason, but nothing like this. As close as it can be to perfection, on both ends of the floor, with Curry being unstoppable (40 points) and their dominance in every aspect, from crashing the boards or closing down the perimeter to open shots, has left the Rockets helpless and desperate.
Conference finals shouldn’t be like this. It should be the best teams in the conference going at it, head to head. But the Warriors this season are a special team, maybe an historic team. The Rockets? They might not have been the best team in their conference semifinals series which they somehow managed to get out of.
Harden wasn’t the MVP, and isn’t now. If there was any doubt about the better player right now, Curry’s performances as part of a team and not someone who tries to do everything himself make it a resounding success for the people voting for the award.
