Kevin Durant Looks Like an Exhausted Parent in This New Meme

LeBron James and his Cleveland Cavaliers have become the punchline of many jokes during these NBA Finals, so you can't blame the three-time NBA champ for trying to deflect some of that attention elsewhere. Curry made nine 3-pointers in Game 2 of this series, the most in NBA Finals history, and Cleveland intentionally blanketed him defensively.

Durant is averging 29.4 points, 7.6 rebounds and 4.5 assists during the playoffs. Durant reportedly took a pay cut to return for a second title run in Oakland this season.

On Wednesday night, it was Durant scoring a playoff career-high 43 points to go along with 13 rebounds and seven assists in a come from behind 110-102 win, giving Golden State a 3-0 lead.

And it was Durant who Perkins directed his ire to after the game. None of his teammates scored more than 11.

Between his absurd shot-making and his incredible passing in this series, Durant's impact on the Warriors offense has been invaluable. In April, ESPN reported that Durant would opt out and then sign a new deal with the Warriors as a free agent.

His postseason marks for efficiency in isolation * a href="http://stats.nba.com/players/isolation/?Season=2017-18&SeasonType=Regular%20Season&PerMode=Totals&CF=Poss*GE*75&sort=PPP&dir=1" *(1.01 points per possession) and post-ups * a href="http://stats.nba.com/players/playtype-post-up/?CF=PlayerFirstName*E*kev" *(1.10 points per possession) would have ranked 15th and second in the league in the regular season, among players with at least 75 possessions.

His arrival in 2016 changed the landscape of the National Basketball Association and there's no doubt that the Golden State dynasty will continue for years to come with him on the team.
