2015 saw the Warriors handle the Cavs pretty easily 4-2. Then Lebron came alive last year and (imo) single-handedly won the whole damn series. Making him the best in the world.
So, series tied 1-1.
Not that I think this will be the last time we see these 2 teams playing in the finals. But maybe. And I think far and away this is the most important, interesting and telling of all the series. They know each other very well. Both teams improved quite a bit over the last 3 years. And now they are both complete veterans on the biggest stage (when comparing Lebron and Curry anyways).
I think the addition of Kevin Durant to the Warriors is the killer though. I see the Warriors taking this in 6. KD is that much a game changer to me. As much as this season has been a predictable bore, I think this series redeems everything for the NBA. Feels to me like the best match-up the NBA has seen in several years. Maybe best in the last decade.
Whoever wins is simply better. Simple as that. Even if they meet again, I think that'll still be the case.
