Kevin Durant To Restructure Warriors Deal, Turn Down Player Option

The 29-year-old then took center stage against the Cleveland Cavaliers whom the Warriors extracted revenge upon from the previous year, winning the series 4-1 to secure a second National Basketball Association championship in three seasons. In addition, Stephen Curry will be out at least one round while recovering from a sprained MCL.

After the Warriors were blown out by the Utah Jazz 119-79 on Tuesday in their final game of the season, Durant discussed the team's rough sledding to finish.

"I was talking with several coaches and execs from teams in the West morass from three to eight, nine", ... "I can pretty much unequivocally say, without it, we're not looking at the team we have right now".

Curry's impending return won't change these differences back to normalcies - still expected to have an adaptation period. Durant is playing perhaps the best defense of his career.

Curry, the engine of the Warriors, whose skill set helps generate the entire offense, apparently changes that.

Before this season began, many thought the Warriors winning the championship was all but ensured. This year, they enter the postseason having lost 10 of their last 17 games with a minor-league call-up as the team's starting point guard.

In the preseason, if you If you had put $120 down on the Warriors to win the title before the season, you would have only stood to make $50 this June, should they complete the task (the team with the best odds, the Cavs, were paying 4-to-1 in the preseason), and 93 percent of surveyed National Basketball Association general managers picked the Warriors to win the title.

And while Oklahoma City hasn't played well enough that the Warriors should fear them, the possibility of a breakout is always looming for the Thunder, and no team would want to be on the other side of Russell Westbrook, Paul George, Carmelo Anthony, and Steven Adams figuring it all out.
