On Tuesday, the Golden State Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers in six games to earn their first championship in 40 years. While LeBron James averaged a near triple-double, Andre Iguodala was named the Finals MVP after averaging 16.3 points, 5.8 rebounds and 4.0 assists.

Following the Warriors winning the NBA Finals, Kobe Bryant took to Twitter on Wednesday morning to congratulate the franchise:

Five years ago today, the Los Angeles Lakers captured their 16th championship against the Boston Celtics. While the Lakers have failed to make the playoffs for the past two seasons, there is optimism with No. 2 pick in this year’s draft to go along with Julius Randle and Jordan Clarkson.

With the NBA Draft in less than 10 days, the Lakers will also have a projected $23 million on cap space to pursue big name free agents the following week. While the Chicago Bulls can match any offers for Jimmy Butler, he is reportedly has ‘increased’ interest in signing an offer sheet with the storied franchise this off-season.
