Kevin Durant Casually Roasted by Warriors GM at Championship Parade

But the Warriors' "light years" lead on the court is shrinking - down to mere light seconds. Regardless of what team James ends up playing for next year and the collective talent they possess, he's still likely to be considered the best player in the game. "Our goal, to be honest, is to try to keep the whole thing together, so that's the pieces of the puzzle we've got to try to figure out". "It's a very thin line between winning and losing - it may not look like it".

The Golden State Warriors celebrated their 2017-18 National Basketball Association championship with a parade in the Bay Area on Tuesday and, just as he did this time a year ago, Draymond Green turned up to the event clad in a garment sure to get everyone talking. Andre's injury really hurt us before that and helped Houston get back in the series. Durant has pledged to come back, but the futures of Zaza Pachulia, David West, JaVale McGee, and Nick Young are in flux. It's a lot tougher to actually walk away when the time comes.

And on Steph, Myers added: "Well, yeah, that was different". That's their job. They make too much money.

"We knew we kind of broke them a little bit with that one", the NBA Finals MVP said. "We do have a draft pick".

He's never been to a Warriors game, but 14-month-old Lincoln is ready to go for his first championship parade.

Yes, that No. 28 pick is going to prove disproportionately important for Golden State because not only are the Warriors fighting the rest of the league - they're also fighting malaise.

In the NBA's case, it's the 2018 NBA Draft, free agency, NBA Summer League, training camp and eventually, the start of a brand new season, but as is always the custom after a champion is crowned, the biggest question before looking to the offseason is: "Who will be the next champion?"

"While we were there, we had some fun with a Warriors fan", he explained.

"My responsibility is to whatever team I play for".

The point about Curry is particularly jabbing as he leveraged those same comments into a "super-max" contract last season, something that's definitely on the table for Durant this summer as well.
