Back-to-back National Basketball Association champion Kevin Durant appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live and was asked if he'd be excited if LeBron James could somehow join him on the Golden State Warriors to turn a superteam into, as Kimmel said, "the Harlem Globetrotters". Monday night and explained to the talk-show host how J.R. brainfarting and running the wrong way at the end of regulation to start the series essentially ended the Cavs.
There's more. Durant says there will be no summer of drama when it comes to his Bay Area future - "cause he ain't about to leave the Dubs" dynasty yet. I just want him to sign a deal. "He's earned that to lay out the terms".
However, the defending champions, spearheaded by former MVP Kevin Durant, overcame a scare from the Rockets during the Western Conference Finals to reach their fourth-straight NBA Finals - albeit in less bedazzling fashion than spectators in the NBA had come to expect. "I'm just trying to play the right brand of ball the best I can do it and see what happens".
While Durant has run with the likes of two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala since leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder for the very team that beat him in the 2016 Western Conference Finals, James spent the last two months of the regular season and much of the postseason building chemistry with new teammates. Kevin Durant was my answer.
Kerr stayed healthy and on the bench while continuing to deal with symptoms stemming from a pair of back surgeries following the 2015 title. I value what they say and how they feel about me more so than anything because that's who I really went through this journey with, those people.
Key reserve David West is contemplating retirement, telling Kerr and Myers during exit interviews he will take some time to decide.
"I don't know if anything would really blow your mind but it was a hard season and there were lots of moments where it became more hard", Kerr said.
"So I don't think that's going to define me as a player". "I could never have dreamt of three titles in four years".
"I feel like I have options. It's pretty incredible to be a part of the group and the organization".
