Kevin Durant's brother: 'Filling the hand up before we get outta here'

Kevin Durant has no need for "anything extra" from the Warriors ahead of his free agency next summer. That spot is usually reserved for Stephen Curry, and moving Durant there was seen as a recruiting tool by the defending back-to-back champions.

Russell Westbrook is out for the season opener, Oklahoma City Thunder coach Billy Donovan confirmed Tuesday.

While the Rockets pushed the Warriors to seven games a year ago would've made for an entertaining match, the story lines between the Dubs and Thunder offered much more meat to gnaw on. "I already know what this organization is about". "We had a tough shooting in the first half and we still cut it close so I'm excited to keep going". I know it's easy to look at that type of [expletive] because it's the entertainment side. Every city I go to?

"I think myself and P.G., we were kind of hesitating", Schroder said. I understand your job, but let's come to a little agreement. If it's the first time I'm seeing y'all, I don't mind answering.


The only downside from Durant's perspective could be the way he is perceived by the Warriors faithful.

Two free throws by Thunder forward Jerami Grant tied the game at 87-all with 9:21 to go before two free throws by Durant nine seconds later gave Golden State the lead for good.

Winning a third National Basketball Association title in the last 4 seasons, the Warriors took it up a notch and presented a reversible championship ring - the first of its kind in league history - to its players and coaching staff on Wednesday, October 17. The feeling is, though, that he will never be as appreciated as his three teammates.
