While there was nothing surprising about the Golden State Warriors beating the Cleveland Cavaliers and highlighting how alone LeBron James is talent-wise compared to his teammates, the meme makers didn’t feel like going easy on them.
The Cavaliers are bleeding points and losses. Their impressive run against a softer schedule has ended, and now they’re falling deep into third place out East, which means another playoff of a series on the road, maybe two.
The Warriors? They didn’t play great the entire game, but once again took it up a notch in the second half. The Warriors have been, surprisingly, a whole worth more than the sum of its parts, but Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant continue to give them an edge no one in the NBA has.
The Cavaliers, and LeBron-led teams have bounced back from rough stretches over the last 7.5 years to make the NBA finals. This season, it feels that might not be the case.
