Durant: [laughs] He told me to enjoy it, have some fun, you know, typical stuff.
Green recalled the only real glitch in the Warriors' season, the Christmas Day loss in Cleveland, as a turning point.
This time around, he's eligible for a mega max that'll put his starting salary around an estimated $35.3 million and would net him around $205 million over five years - including an astounding $46.7 million in the final year - if he stays with the Warriors.
He also had his fifth postseason averaging 30 or more points, tying him with Kobe Bryant, only Jerry West (7) and Michael Jordan (12) have more.
So they do pretty well mathematically.
More than anything, though, there was Curry, stripped of his outside-shooting arsenal by an aggressive, physical, double-teaming defense that suffocated him at every turn.
What made them great: Abdul-Jabbar and Robertson might be two of the top five players in National Basketball Association history, and they were on the same sensational team that season.
The NBA has been reacting to the ideology that if your team can shoot a high-enough percentage from behind the arc, then mathematically, it does not make sense to shoot mid-range shots. So let's look deeper in the numbers, since as always, they never lie.
One year after completing possibly the greatest comeback in NBA history by coming back from down 3-1 to defeat the 73-win Golden State Warriors, the #Cleveland Cavalierswere defeated 4-1 in this year's NBA Finals. History has shown us that the numbers of superstars begin to trend in the wrong direction once they reach that magical age. Thompson, while relatively quiet, hit a couple of three-pointers to start the third quarter as the Warriors took a 79-66 lead. But the stats don't lie. The Warriors had rallied for a 106-98 edge when Andre Iguodala found himself open behind the three-point line. "It's still boring to watch". But based on the previous two years, even in 2015 when LeBron James willed the Cavs to a Game 6 against the Warriors despite injuries to Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love, I believed the Cavs would perform better in the clutch. "We're having too much fun for that".
Offense is exciting. The main reason soccer isn't more popular in this country is because there isn't enough scoring - hockey at least has fighting and lots of violence to spice things up. As daunting a challenge as the Durant-led Warriors presented, the Cavs would have had a chance of getting to a Game 7.
Regardless, the decision by one of the game's greatest players shook the National Basketball Association landscape and created a super team that became overnight villains given their sheer depth of top talent.
"I mean, come on, you got a bunch of guys who are talented and can shoot and pass and dribble, and they're unselfish", Kerr said.
