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

news: Kevin Love admits pondering about 'what ifs' and Kyrie Irving Congrats to the Golden State Warriors! Back to Back Wins!

For the second consecutive year, the Golden State Warriors are celebrating an National Basketball Association championship with a parade in Oakland, and for the second consecutive year, Draymond Green used his T-shirt to troll LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

However, the defending champions, spearheaded by former MVP Kevin Durant, overcame a scare from the Rockets during the Western Conference Finals to reach their fourth-straight NBA Finals - albeit in less bedazzling fashion than spectators in the NBA had come to expect.

The Golden State Warriors All-Star, who has scored 20,913 career points, is viewed as one of two prime candidates - along with Cleveland Cavaliers All-Star LeBron James (31,038) - who could overthrow Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387) as the league's all-time regular-season scoring leader.

Kevin Durant confirmed that he wants to stay with the Warriors during the victory parade Tuesday. "I'm happy I'll be able dial up some of them and get some equity in that deal when it comes to being able to talk amongst the greats and experience what they experienced". Working to try to extend the contracts of Draymond Green and Klay Thompson could be discussed as well.

"This game, your craft, you have to continue studying it".

"I feel like it's easy to be the best player when you don't have good players around you. I got a chance to tell him congratulations on everything and he said 'Hey listen, if there's any chance you want to change your mind and play another year, you can always come here.' But it's all tongue in cheek man". Yet after winning the latest of his Finals MVP awards on Friday in Game 4 of the 2018 Finals, Durant told ESPN's Chris Haynes he could see himself leaving the game in five years. "Kevin's really the free agent we have to focus on".

Many, however, remain skeptical of such signing taking place. I know I don't.

"Certain challenges, some were apparent, some not", Myers said.

Therefore, the only question becomes how much money he will end up making. "This place gives me that", Durant said.
