Golden State Warriors Championship Parade

Golden State Warriors Championship Parade

On Monday, Warriors general manager Bob Myers said he'd give Durant "whatever he wants" to re-sign with the team.

"Sometimes you don't negotiate".

Durant, who turns 30 in September, could ink a five-year deal in July.

Despite the fact that at least two games out of the four-game sweep were extremely entertaining, and despite a plethora of intriguing takeaways spawning from the series, if it means we can move past all the overreactions, let me be the first to join those suffering from Warriors fatigue and say "good riddance" to his year's Finals.

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.

"We knew we kind of broke them a little bit with that one", the NBA Finals MVP said. Right from the beginning, he was trolling just with his T-shirt, which poked fun at LeBron James, and continued a tradition from past year. It felt to me like the whole year we were just trying to get to the playoffs and that's not a very healthy way to do it, but we didn't have much choice. "Before his Warriors exit I want to enjoy as much time with him as possible". He's earned that, to kind of lay out the terms.

Once Durant officially re-signs, the Warriors will yet again become the overwhelming favorite to win next year's title. With the two-time defending champs slated to return their entire core (potentially minus reserves David West, Nick Young, Zaza Pachulia, JaVale McGee, Kevon Looney and Patrick McCaw), KD is the only major piece of the puzzle that isn't locked in. With Kevin Durant set to be a free agent in need of a new contract, and a raise after taking a discount to help the team out last summer, they have some work ahead of themselves. "I have no idea how that'll play out". Draymond's got two more.

"I feel like it's easy to be the best player when you don't have good players around you".
