LeBron James Admits the Warriors Have the “Most Firepower” He’s Ever Seen From an NBA Team

Are you enjoying the 2017 NBA Finals thus far? If not, we don’t really blame you. Game 3 on Wednesday night was entertaining, and had the Cleveland Cavaliers been able to win, it would have given us a real series to look forward to. But since the Golden State Warriors rebounded to stun the Cavaliers in the final minute to take a commanding 3-0 series lead, the Finals are all but over. And they have been, in a word, disappointing for most NBA fans. What was supposed to be a competitive series has turned into the Warriors steamrolling over their competition and making themselves look unbeatable.

But if nothing else, you really have to appreciate what the Warriors have been able to do through the first three games of the series, as it’s something that we haven’t ever really seen in the past. It’s not the first time we’ve seen a team roll through the playoffs and then sweep their way through the Finals, but it is one of the first times we’ve seen such a lopsided Finals series featuring two teams that are actually really good. And it says something when you look at how easily the Warriors have made things look against the Cavaliers.

The Warriors are damn-near unstoppable on the offensive side of the ball, due to the fact that they have Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and Kevin Durant at their disposal, not to mention Draymond Green and a solid cast of role players like Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston. They are so unstoppable that LeBron James told reporters they have the “most firepower” he has ever seen from an NBA team. It’s why the Warriors were able to close out Game 3 with an 11-0 run to win by five after trailing by six with three minutes to go in the game.

“I’ve played against some great teams,” LeBron said after Game 3 ended, “but I don’t think no team has had this type of firepower.”

LeBron is right. We haven’t ever seen a team like the Warriors before. And while it’s hurt the competitive balance of the playoffs and made the Finals a snoozefest, we should appreciate what they’ve been able to do during the playoffs this season. It might not necessarily feel like it in the moment, but we’re witnessing history right before our very eyes.
