    This is why Kevin Durant left Russell Westbrook and the Thunder
    Kevin Durant is getting exactly what he wanted

    ... There is no right answer when it comes to Durant’s decision in 2016. It’s all preference. This — this, what we’re watching KD and the Warriors do to the Cavaliers and the world — is what Durant wanted. He’s getting exactly what he sought, whether you like it or not ...

    Good move for KD. I dont know what to say to those people that are crying over what he did. I wonder how many would be enraged if they were told they couldnt leave their present job for a better job and co workers?

    Warriors open Game 3 with new Finals record for 3s in a quarter

    The Cleveland Cavaliers entered Game 3 of the 2017 NBA Finals with the hope that they could temper the offensive onslaught exhibited by the Golden State Warriors in their two series-opening wins. The first quarter only confirmed that the defending champions will need a lot more than good vibes to stop this year’s title favorites ...

    Kevin Durant Had a Quiet Game 3, and a Legacy-Making Two Minutes
    The KD narrative hit an inflection point in the fourth quarter


    The 2017 Finals have belonged to Kevin Durant. Cleveland has had no answer for him, and I can only assume that LeBron James’s 2015 nightmares about Andre Iguodala have been replaced with new ones about the man once known (for a very short time) as the Slim Reaper ...

    More people watched Comey’s testimony than the NBA finals
    Americans were far more interested in the former FBI director than LeBron James, according to Nielsen television ratings


    The biggest political scandal since Watergate drew more eyes than King James himself. Former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony raked in 19.5 million viewers on average during his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee Thursday, according to Nielsen data— topping viewership for Game 3 of the NBA finals the night before ... Only 16 million viewers tuned in during Wednesday’s game ...

    Cleveland scored 86 points in the first half of Game 4, and that wasn’t even the most absurd thing to happen in its 137–116 win. The abundance of Golden State fouls and onslaught of Cavalier 3s were almost upstaged by several very strange moments on Friday night. Here is the definitive list of absurdities during dead balls and off the court ...

    Matt Barnes caught a lucky break. Now he’s an NBA champion
    Barnes was never supposed to be a Warrior

    ... Durant went down with an MCL injury late in February, which cost him two and a half months of play. The Warriors needed a replacement forward, and Barnes, a former Warrior, had recently been waived by the Sacramento Kings ...
