Kurtenbach: The Warriors won the title, now comes the hard part

Kevin Durant, the back-to-back NBA Finals MVP, told ESPN that he could see himself walking away from the game at 35 years of age, five seasons from now.

While Myers' comments may seem generous, they actually highlight an odd reality in the National Basketball Association - due to the salary structure of max contracts, the best players in the league are never paid their true worth.

"I get asked all the time about MJ, LeBron, and it's such a hard question to ask", Kerr said, according to a USA Today report on Saturday.

Regardless of Durant's goals, Warriors general manager Bob Myers made it clear that he will extend literally any amount of money that can possibly be offered to Durant.

"Whatever he wants. There's no negotiation", said Myers. "No matter how much you enjoy it, nobody wants to be in school that long".

Slate's Craig Fehrman put it simply: "The NBA has been bad for two years, and it's Kevin Durant's fault".

Net Neutrality Is Officially Over Giving ISPs Total Control Of Your Bandwidth
Those Obama-era rules prevented ISPs from blocking or slowing legal traffic, or from being paid for prioritized, faster delivery. FCC chairman Ajit Pai joins "CBS This Morning" to discuss why he thinks the rollback is "tremendously positive" for consumers.

Neal Boyd, ‘America’s Got Talent’ Season 3 Winner, Dies at 42

Casey picked as Pistons coach
Despite missing the playoffs, Detroit traded for Blake Griffin and have a strong tandem of him and centre Andre Drummond. He has five years of coaching experience in Japan and has spent time around the game in Europe.

On Saturday, James revealed that he played the last three games of the series with a "self-inflicted" injury to his hand, incurred after letting "the emotions get the best" of him and punching a whiteboard out of frustration following Game 1. Nothing to me was that shocking, but we went through some stuff. Colin Cowherd, for one, believes Boston will "dethrone" the Golden State Warriors, who just won their third title in four seasons.

"It's not about the record", Durant said last week.

Curry appeared on Good Morning America where he talked about what this year's title means to him, his teammates, and his family. "I feel like it's harder to stand out when you have great players around you".

Yes, it's been reported - and aggregated - that the Warriors are interested in acquiring Anthony Davis, but that's in the same way that I'm interested in acquiring a Mercedes AMG S-63 - I'd certainly like to have it, but I'm neither capable or willing to pay what it costs.

How it all shakes out is anyone's guess, but the Warriors know it has to shake - at least a bit - if they're going to be back in the same position this time next year.
