Warriors' Durant hints at retirement -- when he's 35

Warriors' Durant hints at retirement -- when he's 35

The Golden State Warriors celebrated their 2017-18 National Basketball Association championship with a parade in the Bay Area on Tuesday and, just as he did this time past year, Draymond Green turned up to the event clad in a garment sure to get everyone talking. "Kevin's really the free agent we have to focus on". In two seasons with the Warriors, Kevin Durant has won two NBA titles and two NBA Finals MVP awards, and become the final superstar piece that cemented Golden State as a dynasty.

Durant signed a below-market, two-year deal worth $51 million last year.

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr was asked about West's quote on Monday, and downplayed the idea that anything insane was going on behind the scenes. He praised Golden State's "unselfish environment", in which Curry was the NBA's reigning two-time MVP when Durant arrived, and said he was happy to have been able to put himself in a discussion of "the greats", such as "Kobe, M.J., LeBron, Kareem". It's a lot tougher to actually walk away when the time comes.

"We'll get that done pretty quick, I don't think it'll be much to it", Kerr said. The No. 28 pick could well play a role as well, and if McCaw or Looney return, they'll be expected to take on bigger roles next season.

In recent comments, Durant said he feels like a ideal fit - not only on his team, but also in the Bay Area in general.

- Highest priority on the summer checklist: Kevin Durant's contract. Something to think about.

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.

Yes, there are a ton of players who, if circumstances are favorable (to the Warriors, not necessarily the players) would love to join a victor in Oakland.

"Sure, guys have proven they can win so you want to keep that group together", Myers said. "You just have to be fluid and understand that there's going to be a lot of different variables".
