OAKLAND, Calif. - Kevin Durant, the back-to-back NBA Finals MVP, told ESPN on Friday that he could see himself walking away from the game at 35 years of age, five seasons from now. "This place gives me that", Durant said.

Durant made it clear that he has little desire to be a team's unquestioned alpha dog, saying that "to be one of [the] guys, that's what I always wanted".

J.R. Smith's Game 1 blunder wasn't just responsible for LeBron breaking his hand.it was also the reason the Warriors broke the Cavs - so says Kevin Durant.

"We just don't have a lot of vehicles to add players, as far as financial or cap space or even the non-taxpayer mid-level [exception] - things that you'd normally have, we don't have", Myers said.

Durant told ESPN's Chris Haynes that he could see himself retiring at the age of 35, which would mean another five or six years of playing in the National Basketball Association. I want him to be happy and want him to know we want him as long as he wants to be here.

It's still sinking in for Kerr just how much success the Warriors have had during this four-year stretch since he became coach ahead of the 2014-15 season.

Speaking on the latest edition of the Lowe Post podcast today, Coach Kerr admitted it had been hard at times to gel Durant's style of play with two-time MVP Curry's motion offence.

After all, as he told Ros Gold-Onwude at least year's parade, "I'm petty".

Durant then used that context, of the conditions under which certain players have displayed that greatness, to offer arguably his most eyebrow-raising observation: "I feel like it's easy to be the best player when you don't have good players around you". "I pride myself on working hard wherever I go".

Yes, it's been reported - and aggregated - that the Warriors are interested in acquiring Anthony Davis, but that's in the same way that I'm interested in acquiring a Mercedes AMG S-63 - I'd certainly like to have it, but I'm neither capable or willing to pay what it costs.
