Warriors to Pay Kevin Durant 'Whatever He Wants'

Warriors to Pay Kevin Durant 'Whatever He Wants'

Now the hard part begins. It's a lot of guys in this league. they soft. "What was the difference between the Warriors the previous year and this year, and what was my answer?"

"Kobe [Bryant], M.J. (Jordan), LeBron, Kareem [Abdul-Jabbar], those dudes drive me, they push me every day to get to that level, to that standard and I want to be able to sit back and talk to them about basketball one day", Durant said. Regardless of what team James ends up playing for next year and the collective talent they possess, he's still likely to be considered the best player in the game. Kevin Durant was my answer. "We want to do this thing again".

'THREE!' chronicles the Warriors run to the 2018 NBA Championship. "And I feel like these guys embraced me and I feel like I'm a Warrior". "I got a chance to tell him congratulations on everything and he said 'Hey listen, if there's any chance you want to change your mind and play another year, you can always come here.' But it's all tongue in cheek man". "It's a very thin line between winning and losing - it may not look like it".

Over two seasons with Golden State, Durant has averaged 25.7 points, 7.5 rebounds and 5.1 assists. "Kevin's really the free agent we have to focus on".

So then, was this just some light-hearted chirping from Myers to Durant, or an indication that the Dubs may actually be thinking of just letting the former MVP and four-time scoring champ walk away?

And on Steph, Myers added: "Well, yeah, that was different".

I told one of them dudes from the Cavs - after the game he tried to shake my hand, I said, 'Tristan we ain't cut the same'. "We do have a draft pick".

"In lieu of a post-event rally, the Warriors and the City of Oakland have focused their planning efforts exclusively on creating an interactive parade, the primary element of a championship celebration, where fans will have the opportunity to share in the up-close excitement of the 2018 NBA Championship with the Warriors, their players, coaches, legends and staff".

Two NBA championships (and two Finals MVPs).

"Getting younger is an important factor for us", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Monday.

"My responsibility is to whatever team I play for".

Durant took a significant discount last offseason on a one-plus-one contract.

"For sure this was the toughest of the four, mainly because of the cumulative effect of doing this four years in a row, getting to the Finals four years in a row, it's just hard". Their ultimate goal was to get "clicking like Golden State" when it mattered most: the postseason. We just ain't cut the same.
