Kevin Duran’t Doesn’t Believe ‘Superteam’ Label Applies To Warriors
Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant (35) shoots over Cleveland Cavaliers forward Richard Jefferson (24) during the second half in game four of the 2017 NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena. Ladies and gentlemen, we have our answer, and the answer is “yes”. “We went through, for lack of a better term, basketball hell in that sense of just being so close to getting the job done and not realizing that goal and having to think about that for an entire year and compartmentalize and just try to keep the right perspective about this season and learn the lessons that we learned”. But it shows the Warriors’ unbelievable depth and talent that their fall-back play in the Finals is a basic action 29 other teams would be giddy to use.
Following last November’s election, Richard Jefferson, of last year’s champions, Cleveland Cavaliers, said they’ be the last team to visit the White House. “So, this is the culmination of a year where they grew together and learned each other’s games and got better and better all year, and it was just phenomenal”.
Owner Joe Lacob will be pulling out his pocketbook to potentially give Curry a $200 million deal. Anthony has been with the New York Knicks for most of his career, but the talk he won’t end his career there never stops. He has a year left on his contract with IN, and it’s not certain he would re-sign with the Pacers when he becomes a free agent. Kerr has said that the President couldn’t be more ill-suited for the White House. 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? While I bet Durant wouldn’t mind any of those, perhaps most relevant is the research linking mindfulness to sharper focus and less distractibility. While adding a power forward will certainly benefit the Rockets, who desperately need an effective power forward, it won’t be enough. Green said James had started the super team concept.
Below is the side-by-side comparison of LeBron and Durant’s Finals statistical lines.
LeBron averaged a triple-double on the brightest stage, against maybe the best team in National Basketball Association history. The only thing that isn’t clear at this point is who will be in the Cavs’ starting five in Game 1.
These teams have won five of the of the past six NBA Final’s, with the exception of the San Antonio Spurs in 2014.
Golden State Warriors Stephen Curry holds the Larry O’Brien NBA Championship Trophy during the Warriors Victory Parade on June 15, 2017 in Oakland, California. The Lakers have won the second most, 16, with 11 wins in Los Angeles and 5 in Minneapolis.
Everyone is going to watch next season, even if they say they won’t.
For a large part of the season, Durant took a lot of criticism.
