Kevin Durant scoffed when asked about his contract situation at the Warriors' championship parade on Tuesday.
"Why was that even a discussion? Why we even talking about that?" said Durant. "For sure, we going to do this thing again." It doesn't sound like Durant has any interest in leaving the dynasty he's helped build in Golden State, so we don't anticipate his free agency being drawn out this summer. When Dubs' GM Bob Myers was asked how he would handle the negotiation process with KD, he simply responded: "Whatever he wants. Sometimes you don’t negotiate." Jun 12 - 3:29 PM

Kevin Durant hinted that he could see himself retiring by age 35.

"This game, your craft, you have to continue studying it," said Durant. "No matter how much you enjoy it, nobody wants to be in school that long. I know I don't. At some point, you have to be ready to graduate. Thirty-five, that's just a number in my mind." The back-to-back Finals MVP will be 30 in September, so if he signs a five-year deal for the max this offseason that could be his last contract. As for his life after basketball, KD said he's been entertaining the idea of owning an NBA franchise.

Kevin Durant spoke highly of the Warriors organization after clinching his second straight championship.

"The Bay Area allows me to be who I am, as a city, to just blend in, and the team allows me to do the same thing," said Durant. "All I want to do in my life, while I’m healthy, is to work on my game and enjoy the game and not worry about nothing else. This place gives me that. This is the best place for me to just play ball, work on my game, play ball, and not care about [expletive] that normal NBA superstars are supposed to care about." Durant will likely decline his player option this summer, but all the signs point towards him negotiating another deal with Golden State as a free agent.
Jun 10 - 3:21 PM

Kevin Durant scored 20 points and had 12 rebounds, 10 assists, one steal and three blocks in Game 4 against the Cavaliers on Friday.

He averaged 28.8 points, 10.8 rebounds and 7.5 assists for the Finals and got his second Finals MVP. Durant's just the sixth player to win back-to-back Finals MVP awards joining Hakeem, Kobe, MJ, Shaq and LeBron. His 43 points in Game 3, carrying the Warriors to a road win while Stephen Curry had a terrible shooting night really secured the award for him. Durant will be back with the Dubs next year looking to be the first team to three-peat since the Lakers in 2000-2002. As he continues to dominate, he would certainly be an asset for your fantasy squad in 2018-19.

Kevin Durant told ESPN's Rachel Nichols on Thursday that he will re-sign with the Warriors this summer.

"I'm planning on staying with the Warriors, and we'll figure the rest out," Durant said, before adding that only the "small details" remained to be figured out. KD had one of the best Finals games ever on Wednesday, and LeBron James spent a go portion of his time with the press discussing how Durant has been such a difference maker. KD has taken a pay cut before, so maybe he does again this summer.

Jun 7 - 8:18 PM

Kevin Durant erupted for a career playoff-high 43 points during the Warriors' Game 3 victory on Wednesday, adding 13 rebounds, seven assists and one steal.

Durant torched every single-coverage matchup he saw and the Cavs simply didn't have an answer for him. He finished 15-of-23 from the field and 7-of-7 from the line, with a 6-of-9 mark from downtown. Steph Curry and Klay Thompson scored a combined 21 points on 7-of-27 shooting, and nobody else had more than 11 points for Golden State, which made Durant's epic performance even more critical. The Warriors now hold a 3-0 series lead with a potential closeout game looming on Friday.
Jun 6 - 11:42 PM

Kevin Durant scored 26 points (10-of-14 FG, 4-of-4 FT) and had nine rebounds, seven assists and two blocks in Game 2 against Cleveland on Sunday.

He scored the same amount of points in Game 1 on Sunday but took eight more shots from the field and six more free throws. Durant made his first five shots of the night and had his best field goal percentage, 71.4 percent, since before the All-Star break. We saw just how lethal he can be when he gets going. If he continues this pace into Game 3, this series could be over sooner rather than later.
Jun 3 - 11:45 PM

Kevin Durant said he "didn't take smart shots" in Game 1 on Thursday.

"I took risky looks," Durant added. He's not wrong and in particular he was not very good when the shot clock had 15 seconds or less on it, making just 4-of-15 attempts from the field with no treys. Durant also faced tight defense on 10 of his 16 shots from beyond 10 feet. He's one of the better tightly-contested scorers ever, but KD sounds like he'll be looking to improve the quality of his shots in Game 2.
Jun 2 - 4:17 PM

Kevin Durant scored 34 points on 11-of-21 shooting in Monday's Game 7 win over the Rockets.

KD added five rebounds, five assists, three blocks, one steal and five triples, bouncing back after a few rough games -- he shot a combined 23-for-63 in Games 4-6. KD wasn't even at his best tonight until he turned it on in the second half, so maybe that's a sign of things to come against LeBron James and the Cavaliers in the NBA Finals. Klay Thompson was in foul trouble most of the night but still put up 19 points with three boards, one assist, two steals and three triples, while Draymond Green added 10 points, 13 rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block.
May 28 - 11:41 PM

Kevin Durant scored 29 points with four rebounds, one block and three 3-pointers in 40 minutes during a 98-94 loss to the Rockets in Game 5 on Thursday.

Again, the passing wasn't there with 18 dimes tonight and 14 in Game 4 -- they averaged 29.3 per game in the regular season. Coach Steve Kerr was getting on his guys to cut and Kerr said after the game that his offense was better today than Tuesday. Kerr also told KD to "trust these guys" during a timeout, but afterwards said throwing the ball to KD is a good option. Isolation ball has been a big part of the GS struggles, and KD was really struggling to get good shots late. Besides that, turnovers were costly with 16, including a team-high six from Draymond Green. This is hardly the Warriors team we saw in the playoffs last year.

Kevin Durant had 27 points, 12 rebounds, three assists and a 3-pointer on 9-of-24 shooting in 43 minutes of Tuesday's 95-92 loss to the Rockets, and made an interesting decision to pass the ball to an ailing Klay Thompson with the game on the line in the closing seconds.

With the Warriors only down two points in the final 10 seconds, and with a timeout remaining, Durant had the ball and could have worked his way to the basket, or at least found an open man, but chose to pass the ball to Thompson, who was already dealing with a sore knee. Additionally, Thompson was trapped in the corner and had no chance of getting off a good shot, making Durant's pass look even worse. The series is knotted at 2-2 with Game 5 set for Houston on Thursday night. But if this series ends poorly for the Warriors, critics will look back to Durant's decision at the end of Game 4 as a big reason why it happened.
May 22 - 11:39 PM

Kevin Durant scored 38 points and had three rebounds, but added five turnovers in Golden State’s 127-105 loss to Houston in Game 2 on Wednesday.

KD had another huge night after scoring 37 points in Game 1, but he was the only real source of offense for Golden State as Steph Curry (16 points on 7-of-19 shooting) was the only other Warrior in double digits. KD got a tech in the fourth after pushing James Harden as frustrations boiled while the Rockets were in the middle of a 19-2 run that put the game away, but nothing more will come of it. He’ll be happy to be back in Oracle on Sunday.
May 16 - 11:34 PM

Kevin Durant scored 37 points and had three rebounds and an assist in Golden State's 119-106 Game 1 victory over Houston on Monday.

KD seemed to score at will all game en route to his fourth 30-point game of these playoffs. He started hot from the get-go with 13 first-quarter points and didn't let up. At one point Durant was caught on camera saying, "Can't guard me," while Trevor Ariza was on him. He wasn't wrong.
May 14 - 11:35 PM

Kevin Durant scored 24 points to go along with six rebounds, seven assists and two steals in Golden State's Game 5 victory over New Orleans on Tuesday.

KD continues to put up big numbers, averaging 28.2 points a game during the postseason and scoring 20-plus in all 10 games thus far. The two times Durant played against the Rockets this season, the Warriors lost. That will almost certainly change that as they square up in the Western Conference Finals.
May 9 - 1:40 AM

Kevin Durant put up 38 points on 15-of-27 shooting during Sunday's Game 4 win over the Pelicans, adding nine boards, two triples, five assists, one steal and one block across 36 minutes.

The 38 points accounted for a 2018 post-season high, and he was also a perfect 6-of-6 from the charity stripe as the Dubs took a commanding 3-1 lead in this second-round series against New Orleans. It's true that the Warriors blew a 3-1 lead during the 2016 Finals, but this Pelicans team just doesn't seem to have the firepower to realistically have a chance of coming back. Golden State will look to close out the series at home on Tuesday.
