Golden State Warriors win NBA Championship

The Golden State Warriors claimed their first title in 40 years beating the Cleveland Cavaliers 105-97 in Game 6 of the NBA Finals Tuesday night.

The Warriors rounded out the NBA Finals by claiming the last three games of the series, including Games 4 and 6 on the road in Cleveland, to win four games to two.

Golden State's title didn't come easy as LeBron James, who declared himself "the best player in the world" following Cleveland's Game 5 loss, gave them one heck of a fight. He backed up such talk throughout the series, averaging a double-double (including two triple-double performances in the first five games) while scoring nearly 40 points per game.
