Warriors' Kevin Durant can picture retiring at 35

In an interview with Yahoo! Sports after winning the NBA Championship for the second consecutive season, Durant believes joining a "super-team" with three other NBA All-Star players in the starting lineup was far more hard than James leading a squad that was retooled at the trade deadline in February back to The Finals for the fourth straight year. "You guys asked me this a year ago", said James, whose averages of 34.0 points, 8.5 rebounds and 10.0 assists went for naught over the four-game defeat. Who knows? I might want to be a coach or a GM or an owner or somebody that works guys out or somebody that's trying to tell basketball stories like Kobe [Bryant]. "I pride myself on standing out wherever I am". So, it's hard for me to go out there and play for that type of stuff because it changes through so many people.

Durant had scoring lines of 26, 26, 43 and 20 over the four games against the Cavaliers this postseason, and registered a triple-double of 20 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists in the close-out game.

Both Klay Thompson and Draymond Green have been a huge part of the Warriors' success in the last four years so it is a wise move for the Warriors to ensure that they will be on the team in the next couple of years.

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. In the NBA's case, it's the 2018 NBA Draft, free agency, NBA Summer League, training camp and eventually, the start of a brand new season, but as is always the custom after a champion is crowned, the biggest question before looking to the offseason is: "Who will be the next champion?" As it turns out, when Smith's decision to run out the clock rather than look for a potential game-winning shot contributed to a Game 1 loss, the Warriors had a "good feeling" the series was over. The Golden State Warriors star forward is right in the middle of his prime.

"We just don't have a lot of vehicles to add players, as far as financial or cap space or even the non-taxpayer mid-level [exception] - things that you'd normally have, we don't have", Myers said. Fifteen years and how much effort he put out, the guy's wonderful.

"My responsibility is to whatever team I play for".
