Kevin Durant Takes Low-Key Shot at LeBron James While Praising Himself

Kevin Durant Takes Low-Key Shot at LeBron James While Praising Himself”

"Sometimes you don't negotiate", Meyers said, via USA Today.

Durant could sign for as long as four years and about $160 million, and Myers is prepared to give him "whatever he wants".

"I feel vulnerable all the time", Warriors general manager Bob Myers said Monday.

After shutting down the notion that he "ruined" the National Basketball Association by forming a superteam with the Warriors, Durant actually argued that him succeeding on a loaded Golden State team is more impressive than if he had carried an inferior squad. It felt to me like the whole year we were just trying to get to the playoffs and that's not a very healthy way to do it, but we didn't have much choice.

"The last two games Houston had leads in both games, they played really well but I thought they wore down and I thought our talent just took over". He's earned that, to kind of lay out the terms. "No matter how many points I score, no matter how many people I pass up, no matter how many points I leave on the table, my legacy, as we always like to talk about, I can go up and ask any person who has ever seen me play and they'll have a different way of viewing my game". If you have to have the best ISO player on Earth, then you've got to live with some ISO's when maybe you don't want them.

Look at how overmatched the Cavaliers looked against the Warriors the last two years, or how the possible dynasty in Miami died on the vine in 2014 because of a lack of solid role players to surround LeBron James, Chris Bosh, and Dwayne Wade. Well, going out and signing Kevin Durant that summer and winning back-to-back titles after that did an excellent job of backing up that claim.

"I don't know if anything would really blow your mind but it was a hard season and there were lots of moments where it became more hard", Kerr said. "For sure this was the toughest of the four (years)".

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 never could have envisioned this. And I feel like these guys embraced me and I feel like I'm a Warrior". "I could never have dreamt of three titles in four years".
