Kevin Durant: My Responsibility Is To Myself, Not The NBA's Competitive Balance

  • Dub Dynasty: Warriors sweep Cavs for second straight title

"He's one of the best players that I've ever played against, that this league has seen". Signing with the Rockets make sense for James since they are the only team that gives the Warriors a tough fight in the Western Conference Playoffs. Understanding especially where my boys are at this point in their age.

Durant's comments come after Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James averaged 34.0 points, 10.0 assists and 8.5 rebounds in the Finals. Curry made a record nine three-pointers in Game 2, and Durant's 43-point performance in Game 3 secured not only a win for his team, but victory for everyone in the country in the form of free Taco Bell. He had a lot of things to say about the journey and what winning the title means to him, but perhaps his most interesting comment is the one below.

On a podcast during the finals, Gilbert said he views James as much more than a player. "I feel like it's harder to stand out when you have great players around you", Durant told Yahoo Sports. "So I'm just trying to prove to myself that I could just stay in it for the long haul and, hopefully, I continue to have some success". "Keep my mouth shut and go about my business and work and be ready and be prepared for this team next year". I know the right questions to ask certain guys and see if they're smart enough to actually think the game as well.

What happened in the locker room after the worst mental lapse in NBA Finals history was purely speculation until after Golden State swept them out of the Finals. Few teams have more young talent than the 76ers, which makes Philadelphia an enticing challenge for James. And sure, that's true. Sherman said their odds would shoot up to 100-1 if James, as expected, doesn't sign with his former team.

No matter who you ask, the Houston Rockets are always one of the teams that is constantly linked to LeBron James as he prepares to hit free agency for the third time in his National Basketball Association career. Love, in his fourth season with the Cavaliers, nearly expects it.

He added that all of the recent title teams with combinations of mega-stars, including his run with the Miami Heat as well as the Boston Celtics, the San Antonio Spurs and the Warriors, have found success in part due to their smarts.

Look, it's not wrong for Durant to have gone to the Warriors.

However, he's no box-score stuffer like Draymond Green, who's occasionally an afterthought on offense but is capable of defending any position and a master at taking care of the little things.
