Warriors' Kevin Durant can picture retiring at 35

With the likes of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and - of course - Kevin Durant for the past two seasons; they're one of the most talented teams in National Basketball Association history. The Golden State Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 108-85.

After all, as he told Ros Gold-Onwude at least year's parade, "I'm petty". "I got a chance to tell him congratulations on everything and he said 'Hey listen, if there's any chance you want to change your mind and play another year, you can always come here.' But it's all tongue in cheek man". Durant has said all along he wants to stay put, especially after winning a pair of championships in his first two seasons with Golden State. "He did us a great service", Myers said. Nothing to me was that shocking, but we went through some stuff.

Durant signed a below-market, two-year deal worth $51 million last year. It's a lot tougher to actually walk away when the time comes. But there was one moment that not a lot of people saw between coach Steve Kerr and Quinn Cook.

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".

But signing older guys - whether that be ones who were on the team this past year or a new batch of ring chasers - is still something the Warriors need to do this offseason.

"For sure this was the toughest of the four, mainly because of the cumulative effect of doing this four years in a row, getting to the Finals four years in a row, it's just hard".

With the free agent market likely to be compressed thanks to a flattening salary cap, there is sure to be a surplus of players looking to sign one-year make-good contracts this summer.

"Whatever he wants. There's no negotiation", said Myers. "I know they're going to view it as a ideal career no matter what".
