Golden State Warriors Championship Parade

"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.

"Sometimes you don't negotiate".

Durant made it clear that he has little desire to be a team's unquestioned alpha dog, saying that "to be one of [the] guys, that's what I always wanted".

Despite the fact that at least two games out of the four-game sweep were extremely entertaining, and despite a plethora of intriguing takeaways spawning from the series, if it means we can move past all the overreactions, let me be the first to join those suffering from Warriors fatigue and say "good riddance" to his year's Finals.

With every successful season Durant has as a member of the Golden State Warriors, it must hurt Westbrook more and more as he realizes he's stuck on a roster in OKC with an overpaid Carmelo Anthony, a Paul George that's about to dip, and nearly no chance of winning a championship as long as the Warriors are around. "You helped us win playoff games", Kerr said. "He's earned the right to sign whatever deal he wants".

With Curry limited to just 51 games during the regular season, Cook averaged 9.5 points in 33 appearances.

Ryan warns Trump against pardoning himself
Frustration that the foot dragging by the Department of Justice should not be tolerated. Nevertheless, Ryan made clear that he doesn't believe Trump should pardon himself.

"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". He's earned that, to kind of lay out the terms.

During the Dubs' championship parade in Oakland Tuesday, however, Myers backtracked from that statement. Yet after winning the latest of his Finals MVP awards on Friday in Game 4 of the 2018 Finals, Durant told ESPN's Chris Haynes he could see himself leaving the game in five years. I know I don't.

"So I don't think that's going to define me as a player". Nothing to me was that shocking, but we went through some stuff.

Kerr plans to take it easy for the next several months and not work much as Myers handles the contracts and money, while leaving summer league coaching duties to Willie Green. "I could never have dreamt of three titles in four years".

"I'm gonna stand in front of KD", Fitzgerald said. "It's pretty incredible to be a part of the group and the organization".
