Rather, Durant credited draft choices and team chemistry for Golden State's superb 2016-17 season, in which the team won 67 games before cruising to a title with a 16-1 playoff record.
Durant then replied by saying, "I don't think it's fair to minimize what Kevin offers Golden State, and what they offered him, to say that it was the weakest move in National Basketball Association history". "I was anxious, I was jittery".
They beat us tonight.
But first, Durant embraced another special someone too.
"First of all, if everybody wanted Steph, he would have been the No. 1 pick", Durant said.
LeBron James lost his fifth NBA Finals, but it surely wasn't due to a lack of effort, as he became the first player ever to average a triple-double in the NBA Finals series. "He had high rebound numbers, he did great with his assists, which is an area of his game he's improved on tremendously, and taken his game to another level. but the thing about him is, that he's unguardable".
"With another championship", Wanda Durant said with a laugh.
You can add the makers of Jeopardy! to Durant's growing list of critics. I don't see a big gap. "But we prevailed, we're champions and it's fantastic doing it on our home floor". "I'm just so happy for him to be able to realize his goal and be my teammate". Aron Baynes played in the 2014 NBA Finals with the San Antonio Spurs against a LeBron James led Miami Heat.
