Warriors GM Unintentionally Called Out Kevin Durant For Being A Bandwagon Player

Warriors general manager Bob Myers expects swift negotiations to re-sign two-time reigning NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant and coach Steve Kerr.

"Sometimes you don't negotiate", Meyers said, via USA Today.

He could sign a max five-year deal in July.

Early numbers analysis from KQED transportation reporter Dan Brekke: "Even if today's ridership tracks 5 percent below a year ago, it would still make BART's Top 10 (right around No. 7, I think)". "Kevin Durant, look what he did for us a year ago, he did us a great service", Myers said.

"[The Durant comments were] just for the media, he can't have anything he wants", Myers said. He has earned the right to sign whatever deal he wants. "I'm happy I'll be able dial up some of them and get some equity in that deal when it comes to being able to talk amongst the greats and experience what they experienced". He's earned that, to kind of lay out the terms.

Sebastian Vettel 'surprised' by one Red Bull decision during Canadian GP qualifying
It was Ferrari's first win in Canada since 2004 and came from their first pole there in 17 years. Vettel had failed to convert his previous two pole positions, in Azerbaijan and China, into wins.

Given that the Warriors won an National Basketball Association title in 2015, and won a record 73 games the following year before barely losing to James's Cavs with an injury-hobbled Curry, many believed that they were the last team in the league in need of Durant's difference-making talents. That's their job. They make too much money.

"This game, your craft, you have to continue studying it", Durant said. "We want to do this thing again".

Many, however, remain skeptical of such signing taking place. "I have no idea how that'll play out".

The fact of the matter is, we just cut from a different cloth. Klay's got another year.

With his team having gone 1-8 against Golden State over the past two Finals, after having dethroned its nemesis in 2016, James was asked what the biggest difference was between then and now. "Kevin's really the free agent we have to focus on".
