Im trying to feel bad for Durant.
I just don't.
I just don't.
We're all bitter about it.I totally agree. How could we? He joined a team that didn’t need him, and profited from their already established success. It’s completely dishonorable, and this is karma rearing it’s ugly head.
It is what it is.
It's pretty manager macabre to immediately get curious about his contract, but he has to pick up that player option.If it's an Achilles tear, I just don't see some team taking that gamble and giving him a 4 year max. Maybe someone gives him a one year max with an team option year.
I think he just opts into the Warriors option he has now or they give him some good will contract and give him the one and one with a player option.
It already hard to build a team with the salary cap. To handicap a team for multiple years of 38+ million just to gamble on a 30 year old player who could be coming off one of the worse injuries for a basketball player, is basically a GM putting a timer on his job.

That handicaps that team and costs them an enormous amount of money next year for a guy they can't play.
It will be very interesting how it works out
Doucheface has always seen players as commodities, and not been excessively loyal to any of them; Steph still has no NTC. And for the most part that's been why he's so successful.It’s crazy that the Raptors blew that game but all anybody will talk about is KD’s injury because of what it means for the entire landscape of the NBA. Steve Kerr deferring to Bob Myers when asked about KD’s health then Bob Myers incredibly bizarre performance. He seemed more bothered by how this will reflect on the organization than KD’s future as a basketball player. It was clear to many that he was holding his Achilles after the initial injury but I’m not a doctor.
I feel sorry for New York fans because they almost stepped into a dynasty. Now there is certainly no way a diminished version of KD will lead you to any glory, at least not paired with Kyrie.
When a "chosen team's" fans do bad things, you know they don't keep the same energy. I'm a fan of the Eagles. I watched us cheer as they took Michael Irvin off the field. So I'm kind of IDGAF mode because they will never give the "chosen side" the same energy. I almost give the Raptors fans a pass; this is manufactured bullshit to generate sympathy for the oligarch franchise. I don't even want to get into what would have happened if that were the Cavs fans in the same situation, they would get damn near the "Eagles" treatment.Man, the fucking media is so biased it's insane. I heard NOTHING when the Warriors fans cheered Kawhi's injury a couple of years ago. And if I'm not mistaken, they did the same for the Kyrie injury in 2015.
Ultimately, it was dumb of the Raptors fans to boo the injury but it came soon after KD fouled Van Vleet multiple times and then jawed at him. It also came after the refs basically started gifting the Warriors points. Draymond gets a pass for being over emotional and saying shit but a fanbase can't? I don't condone it, but no chance in hell that injury didn't stem from the one he suffered earlier. Whether they said it was a calf or not, it was a non contact injury. As was the one today.
