"What was the difference between the Warriors the previous year and this year, and what was my answer?"

"Sure, guys have proven they can win so you want to keep that group together", Myers said. "I could never have dreamt of three titles in four years".

Championship teams are made just as much in the margins as they are with centerpiece superstar players.

"In the entirety of last year's playoffs, Durant had 37 isolation possessions, via Synergy Sports", Moore wrote. "You guys asked me this previous year", said James, whose averages of 34.0 points, 8.5 rebounds and 10.0 assists went for naught over the four-game defeat. "It's a very thin line between winning and losing - it may not look like it".

They first came together when they posed for photos on the red carpet together in Ralph Lauren designs at the 2017 Met Gala. Now, according to the latest reports, the actress has accompanied Nick to his cousin's wedding ceremony.

The Golden State Warriors are the National Basketball Association champions, and as much as they'd like the keep the gang together their roster will likely see some influx this summer.

Things have gone about as well as Kevin Durant could have imagined since his dramatic decision to join the Golden State Warriors during the 2016 offseason. With the two-time defending champs slated to return their entire core (potentially minus reserves David West, Nick Young, Zaza Pachulia, JaVale McGee, Kevon Looney and Patrick McCaw), KD is the only major piece of the puzzle that isn't locked in. It's a lot tougher to actually walk away when the time comes. "My pitch for every free agent: You might get some backlash, but you might get one of these [the Larry O'Brien Trophy]". Kevin Durant, look what he did for us a year ago, he did us a great service, so he's earned the right to sign whatever deal he wants. 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.

We get what Durant is trying to say: That he was arguably the most important player on team with enormous talents like two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry and sharpshooter Klay Thompson is a sparkling achievement, and much more of a resume-booster than if he was the lone alpha dog on, say, the Phoenix Suns. "We do have a draft pick".
