Kevin Durant says he would consider retiring at 35

news: Kevin Love admits pondering about 'what ifs' and Kyrie Irving

As last year's "burner" Twitter account incident showed, Durant doesn't just let words wash over him.

"My responsibility is to my skills". In a Lee Jenkins profile for Sports Illustrated, Durant revealed that he wasn't prepared for the series opener.

Therefore, the only question becomes how much money he will end up making. Instead, they'll have to find a way to improve via the No. 28 pick next Thursday's NBA Draft, a tax-payer mid-level exception contract slot (valued at roughly $5 million), minimum-value contracts, and a wad of cash they can offer any team dumb enough to sell them a second-round draft pick.

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr was asked about West's quote on Monday, and downplayed the idea that anything insane was going on behind the scenes. "All that other stuff, that's on y'all". "128 [after Game 1 of the Finals]".

The Golden State Warriors All-Star, who has scored 20,913 career points, is viewed as one of two prime candidates - along with Cleveland Cavaliers All-Star LeBron James (31,038) - who could overthrow Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387) as the league's all-time regular-season scoring leader.

But the Warriors' "light years" lead on the court is shrinking - down to mere light seconds. Kevin Durant was my answer. "That's the beauty. I'd hate to say, "Man, I don't want to do this, do that" when I'm done playing".


After completing a four-game sweep of the Cleveland Cavaliers to win the 2018 NBA Championship, Golden State Warriors' Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and Stephen Curry exit their plane as they arrive back in Oakland, Calif., on Saturday, June 9, 2018. I told one of them dudes from the Cavs after the game, he tried to shake my hand.

Although he has been in the National Basketball Association since he was a 19-year-old rookie on the Seattle SuperSonics, Durant says he can imagine his life apart from the game and leaving it when he turns 35. He added, "It's as if David Robinson chose to join Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen in Chicago and coast his way to some mid-'90s titles".

Warriors center David West made some eyebrow-raising comments in the locker room during Golden State's postgame championship celebration on Friday night. "No matter how much you enjoy it, nobody wants to be in school that long. This place gives me that", Durant said.

The NBA off-season is just getting started. "I feel like it's harder to stand out when you have great players around you", Durant told Yahoo! So, it's hard for me to focus on that.

"I pride myself on standing out wherever I am", Durant added. "So I'm not trying to go out there and force anything".
