Warriors playing the opposite of hardball with Kevin Durant

Warriors playing the opposite of hardball with Kevin Durant

J.R. Smith's Game 1 blunder wasn't just responsible for LeBron breaking his hand.it was also the reason the Warriors broke the Cavs - so says Kevin Durant.

Golden State Warriors' Stephen Curry (30) celebrates after defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 4 of the NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio, on Friday, June 8, 2018.

Since he famously took roughly $10 million less than he could have in order to keep the team's core in tact last summer, he might want to capitalize by signing the four-year deal with approximately $160 million that the Warriors can offer him.

Finals MVP Kevin Durant talks with NBA TV about his team's run to the title. "They're very different, but however you want to rank them, they're right there together".

"All I want to do in my life, while I'm healthy, is to work on my game and enjoy the game and not worry about nothing else".

"I just don't think that'll happen, man".

"[The Durant comments were] just for the media, he can't have anything he wants", Myers said.

It is not clear, however, if Durant will sign a one-year deal as he did in the 2016 offseason, or if he will seek a multi-year deal.

Slate's Craig Fehrman put it simply: "The NBA has been bad for two years, and it's Kevin Durant's fault".

Kerr has one year remaining on his original five-year contract, so he would receive a multiyear extension - and Kerr wants to coach Golden State for the long haul, perhaps for another decade if he can. "I have no idea how that'll play out".

"I wouldn't say we have figured it out".

The Warriors have become the model of success in the league - and perhaps even in North American professional sports - not because they rest on their laurels, but because they push already great things to the next level. Draymond's got two more. Andre's injury really hurt us before that and helped Houston get back in the series.
