Warriors' Steve Kerr hopes to address back issues this summer

NBA may be fantastic, but Warriors far from all-time best

NBA may be fantastic, but Warriors far from all-time best

With more and more teams forming "Big Threes", Durant made it a "Big Four" with Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.

That would make their analysis rather boring to write, though, so pretend they do decide to make their way into Thursday's festivities. "It's positive. Free agency's so fast and it's so fluid, you really just hope you've created a place where there can be honest dialogue back and forth".

His contract will be restructured. In a New York Times profile this spring, Durant revealed that he is in business with Silicon Valley "super angel" investor Ronald Conway and consulting with Laurene Powell Jobs, the widow of Apple founder Steve Jobs. For any teams that thought they might have the chance to bid at the All-Star it is a false alarm. Durant was due a salary of $27,734,405 in 2017-18 according to Spotrac but he will take around $4 million less than than the maximum available to him.

An unprecedented third straight Finals clash between the Warriors and Cavaliers was hyped as the ultimate championship rubber match and expected to be the antidote for a postseason that had little in the way of drama. They were during the playoffs, and it was because of Durant. "Unlike Iguodala, Livingston never signed a big money deal, due to the bad knee injury that derailed much of the early part of his career". Among teams around the league, there's a belief that the value this summer for a two-way wing such as Iguodala could reach $20 million annually.

When the 28-year-old former Oklahoma City Thunder star, Durant, became a free agent last off-season and went on tour, he made his priorities very clear.

Durant wants to continue to play with Curry, the best shooter in the National Basketball Association. Wasn't he faced with a similar situation - stay with Cleveland and make it to the Eastern Conference Finals but likely no further, or join a team that's better than Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen?

Hey, we can't all be Warriors fans - but I'm sure Warriors fans appreciate Durant being a fan of them.

I should remind you this decade brought 3 Wild Card appearances and one 98-win season.

"That's the one thing about the Warriors right now", Jazz coach Quin Snyder said on a podcast recently with Adrian Wojnarowski. The Warriors only have five players under contract for next season.

All healthy, no one is beating this team anytime soon.

Durant could also get more looks at LeBron James going forward. In the end however - as seen in the Finals - the National Basketball Association is still trending toward small ball for the most part.
