In the final gruesome scene of "There Will Be Blood," Daniel Plainview sits on the ground with a bloodied body next to him and says, simply, "I'm finished."
After a similarly epic Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Wednesday, I don't feel exactly the same way, but … well, I have seen enough.
As good as that game was, there is no need to see it again. Golden State has proved its point, one that was fairly obvious from the beginning: when you add one of the best players in the history of the NBA to the team with the best regular-season record in the history of the NBA, there's a very good chance that team is going to excel.
After Wednesday's 118-113 victory in Cleveland, the Warriors are 15-0 in the playoffs and just one game from perfection. Does the best player on the planet actually believe Cleveland can win four consecutive games against this West Coast All-Star Team?
Not if LeBron is being honest.
