Warriors to Pay Kevin Durant 'Whatever He Wants'

Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr celebrates their NBA Finals victory

"Sometimes you don't negotiate". The Dubs look like an emerging dynasty after capping off the greatest four-year stretch in National Basketball Association history, and barring a next, next chapter for Kevin Durant this summer, they're probably going to be looking at the greatest five-year stretch in National Basketball Association history about 12 months from now.

When the report of Myers offering Durant "whatever deal he wants" came up in the parade interview, Myers found the flawless opportunity to make fun of the two-time Finals MVP. "He's earned that to lay out the terms". That shouldn't be a long negotiation. You helped us get here. But there was one moment that not a lot of people saw between coach Steve Kerr and Quinn Cook.

He doesn't expect any difficulties in getting a deal worked out. As the Warriors once again took to the streets of Oakland to celebrate their second title in as many years, Green donned a t-shirt poking fun at Cavs superstar LeBron James. Working to try to extend the contracts of Draymond Green and Klay Thompson could be discussed as well.

"[The Durant comments were] just for the media, he can't have anything he wants", Myers said. "I have no idea how that'll play out". Durant's free-agent decision isn't shrouded in mystery. 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. "I know they're going to view it as a ideal career no matter what". I know I don't. "I didn't think it was anything unusual given the state of our team, what we've been through and the length of this journey". The most obvious line in the video is "Looking like straight bozos, I saw it coming, that's why I went solo", which is Westbrook's way of calling the Golden State Warriors - specifically KD - bozos for teaming up in Golden State while he is perfectly fine running the show alone in Oklahoma City.

It was Trudeau who started blasting Trump after he left, after the deals had been made". He had other things, bigger things, on his plate in Singapore.

"For sure this was the toughest of the four, mainly because of the cumulative effect of doing this four years in a row, getting to the Finals four years in a row, it's just hard".

Myers also downplayed any tension or turmoil that took place privately. "He's earned it", Myers said.

It's still sinking in for Kerr just how much success the Warriors have had during this four-year stretch since he became coach ahead of the 2014-15 season. Four NBA scoring titles. "It's pretty incredible to be a part of the group and the organization".
