When it became apparent the Warriors were going to beat the Cavaliers for their third championship in four years (and you can decide when "apparent" kicked in), only two issues remained on the table.

One, was whether LeBron James was playing his last games as a Cavalier. The other: Who would win Finals MVP?

In one corner was Stephen Curry. In another was Kevin Durant. Let's examine the numbers:

Curry: 27.5 ppg, 22 3-pointers (including a number in the you-gotta-be-kidding category), 6.0 rpg, 6.8 apg.

Durant: 28.8 ppg, 10.8 rpg, 7.5 apg, 52.6 percent from the field (including 15 of 23 in Game 3 when he delivered a 43-point dagger).

Durant won, giving him NBA Finals MVP trophies in each of his two seasons as a Warrior. And Golden State coach Steve Kerr says if you are looking for some disappointment from Curry, forget about it. 

"I know that's a storyline," Kerr said during his postgame news conference. "And I'm sure it would have been nice for Steph to win the MVP, but honestly I don't think he's that disappointed at this point."

Kerr later reminded everyone that it was Curry who recruited Durant to join the Warriors after they had blown a 3-1 lead to the Cavaliers and lost it in the NBA Finals two years ago.

"I was there in the Hamptons when we had that discussion," Kerr said. "I don't remember anybody asking, "Who's going to win MVP in The Finals.' It was all about let's win championships together."
