Kevin Durant took an extra dribble before nailing the potential game-winning shot in Tuesday's loss, but it was still on his fingertips when the buzzer sounded.
The Rockets won 122-121 and Durant might have won the game for the Warriors had he not taken an extra dribble in an effort to avoid a potential blocked shot by James Harden. It's unlikely that Harden would have actually blocked Durant's shot, but he was coming at him hard and Durant chose to lose him with the dribble. He hit 7-of-15 shots and two 3-pointers for 20 points, five rebounds, seven assists and four blocks on the night, and while it wasn't an incredible performance, he showed all the tools that make him a fantasy stud. It's coming. Oct 18 - 1:47 AM

Kevin Durant (virus) was back at practice on Sunday.

Durant missed the Dubs' preseason finale on Friday with the illness, but him getting back on the practice court just a few days later suggest he'll be fine for opening night. On a per-game basis, Durant was the No. 1 option in 9-cat leagues last season, so he'll make for a fine top-5 target on draft day.

Kevin Durant (virus) will not play against the Kings on Friday.

Hopefully, this illness will only keep him out of action for a couple days and he'll be ready to go for the opener. Last season, Durant had one of the best seasons from an efficiency standpoint for those qualifying for points as just the fourth player ever to post at least a 27 usage rate and a 65.0 true shooting percentage. He was first per game in standard leagues before his injury, so he's an option as the top pick.

Kevin Durant dropped 20 points in just 25 minutes vs. the Wolves on Thursday.

Coach Steve Kerr said his team still isn't in the best shape, but Durant looked like he was in mid-season form. One of the most efficient scorers in the NBA, Durant finished 8-of-13 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line with two rebounds, two assists, one block and two 3-pointers. Giannis Antetokounmpo and Karl-Anthony Towns have been getting a lot of love, but there's nothing wrong with taking Durant as the top pick.
Oct 5 - 9:23 AM

Kevin Durant scored 10 points in 24 minutes against the Nuggets on Saturday, adding four rebounds, one assist, one steal and one turnover.

Coach Steve Kerr talked up Durant for looking like a different guy this year, but it probably had nothing to do with how KD is arguably the best isolation scorer of all time. The Warriors did run their usual isolation sets with Durant and you can expect him to have a similar output on the stat sheet. He was fantasy's No. 1 player per game last year, so he is in the mix to be the top pick.
Sep 30 - 11:01 PM

Kevin Durant apologized on Tuesday for criticizing the Thunder and his former coach Billy Donovan.

Durant responded to a critic via his official Twitter account earlier in the week, writing in the third-person, "[Durant] didn’t like the organization or playing for Billy Donovan. His roster wasn’t that good. It was just him and [Russell Westbrook] ... Imagine taking Russ off that team, see how bad they were. KD can’t win with those cats." Durant has since deleted the tweets and denounced his actions as "childish" and "idiotic." He'll get a rowdy reception when the Warriors visit Oklahoma City on Nov. 22.

Kevin Durant has reportedly agreed to re-sign with the Warriors on a two-year deal worth $53 million.

Wow, Durant was eligible to sign a max contract with the Dubs that would have started his annual salary at $34.7 million, so he's giving them a massive discount here in order to help keep the band together. KD's contract will have a player option on Year-2, so we'll likely see him go through this same song and dance again next summer. Durant was fantasy basketball's No. 1 option last season, so he'll make for an easy top-3 selection on draft day.
Jul 3 - 6:24 PM

Kevin Durant has declined to opt in for the second year of his contract with the Warriors, a source told the AP.

This was always expected and was just a formality. The plan is for Durant to re-sign with the Warriors once Golden State takes care of its other business, so there are no conspiracy theories to be found here.

Kevin Durant will reportedly wait until the Warriors to make most of their free agency acquisitions before re-signing with the club in late-July.

Durant is willing to re-sign with the Dubs at a discount in order to help keep their core intact, and him delaying his free agent decision will make it much easier for Golden State to work out deals with soon-to-be free agents Stephen Curry, Andre Iguoadala and Shaun Livingston. KD put in averages of 25.1 points, 8.3 boards, 4.9 dimes, 1.9 triples, 1.1 steals, 1.6 blocks and just 2.2 turnovers per game during his first year with the Warriors, so he'll be an easy top-5 pick on draft day.

Kevin Durant will reportedly decline his player option for the 2017-18 season in order to renegotiate his contract with the Warriors to make it easier for them to re-sign Andre Iguodala this summer.

Durant is reportedly willing to take roughly a $4 million discount in order to let the dynasty in Golden State continue, and this move will help the Dubs invoke their Bird rights on an Iguodala deal that will be competitive with other offers he'll receive on the open market. It's currently believed that Durant will sign another two-year deal with a player option on Year-2, and it'll be interesting to see if Stephen Curry is also willing to sign at a discount in order to keep this team together.

In an interview during the Warriors championship parade, Kevin Durant said "it's going to be even better next year."

He sure loved winning a title and KD certainly has enough from his off-court money. General manager Bob Myers talked a lot about a meeting in the Hamptons to get KD to join up, and it sure seems like the Warriors have this thing ready to go for a long time. KD is actually quite nice, as it turns out.
Jun 15 - 3:28 PM

Kevin Durant was named the Finals MVP after he won his first NBA title with a 129-120 Game 5 win over the Cavaliers on Monday.

He dropped 39 points on 14-of-20 shooting from the field with seven rebounds, five assists, one steal and five 3-pointers, but his defense on LeBron James was just as crucial to the Warriors success. Durant is a free agent this summer, but he's not going anywhere and he said that he's willing to take a discount to keep the Warriors core together -- Stephen Curry and Andre Iguodala are also free agents. KD will be 29 in September and has been one of the best players in fantasy over the last decade.
Jun 13 - 12:13 AM

Kevin Durant scored 35 points during a Game 4 loss to the Cavs on Friday, adding four rebounds, four assists, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

The Warriors have a 3-1 lead, so hopefully the internet can come up with some new jokes this weekend. As for KD, he played well yet again and has now scored at least 30 points in each of the four NBA Finals games. He also hit the 3,000-point mark for his playoffs career, becoming the 25th player ever to do so. Yes, the Warriors have a 3-1 lead, but this time they have arguably the best pure scorer of all time.
Jun 10 - 12:16 AM

Kevin Durant hit a clutch 3-pointer on Wednesday to help Golden State earn a 3-0 lead in the Finals, finishing with 31 points, eight rebounds and four assists.

Durant made 10-of-18 FGs and 7-of-8 FTs tonight, with one steal and one block, and his two-way play has been essential to the Warriors' postseason dominance -- they've yet to lose a playoff game this season, which is unprecedented. KD and the Warriors can sweep the Finals (and the playoffs) with one more victory in Cleveland on Friday.
Jun 8 - 12:25 AM

Kevin Durant had 33 points, 13 rebounds, six assists, five blocks, three steals and four 3-pointers on Sunday, helping the Warriors take a 2-0 lead over the Cavs in the Finals.

Durant joined Tim Duncan as the only players with at least 30 points, 10 rebounds, five assists and five blocks in a Finals game. His oft-overlooked defense was incredible tonight, and he was no less impressive on offense, making 13-of-22 FGs, 3-of-3 FTs and 4-of-8 threes. The Cavs get a few days off to scheme for Durant and the Warriors' surreal offense prior to Game 3 in Cleveland on Wednesday.
