Great Decision by Durant Mr. Green


Looks like the Warriors losing the Finals was the best thing that could have happened to them. Idea

Now, if/when GSW wins a Championship ("not one, not two, not three...") it will be written up as being because of Durant. If GSW instead beat CLE, Durant would instead just been seen as a hanger-on to a title-team that didn't really need him.

Undoubtedly that must have played a part in "The Decision, Part Deux" Twisted Evil


Just like in the W... you've got to lose before you can win. Now if only the Storm could just stop winning games... Razz

I am happy about the signing as well. Shocked but very happy. Staying healthy through the season is important. It would be great for KD to be seen as a contributor and not a "hanger on" if the GSW had won this season.

I tip my hat to the GSW organization for doing what they felt needed to be done to keep them in the running for winning championships. I remember when that was not always the case.

I understand fans ire with KD leaving but burning jerseys? Really?

One can do what they want but KD was paid with the purchase so who is it really hurting when its burnt?

I wonder if they will act like Lebron's fans, should KD return to okc??? Razz

Yep Razz

But at least the ownership learned from the mistakes of what Dan Gilbert wrote after LeBron left... Twisted Evil

Both the OKC executives left classy statements just in case KD returns. Idea

While I am extremely excited for GSW, I recognize this is a huge blow to OKC.

Tim Duncan leaning towards retirement.

San Antonio Spurs star Tim Duncan is leaning toward retirement, reports The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Duncan turned 40 in April, and saw his effectiveness decline over his last season, particularly during the playoffs, when he averaged the lowest minutes and points of his career.

I wouldn't be surprised. After the retirement tour Kobe Bryant had, I can definitely see Tim bowing out on a quiet note. That's just his character. That will be some hall of class.

I hope he doesn't do that. Because Bryant announced his retirement, fans had an opportunity to say goodbye. I'm sure there were plenty of people who made sure to see one of his games, because they knew it would be their last chance.

Timmy is one of the best to ever play the game. Even if he doesn't want the retirement tour, fans deserve the opportunity to say goodbye.

LMAO. That would have been hilarious.

But let's be honest, if he joins a team, he's joining Lebron.

Charles Barkley needs to shut the hell up. He left Philly to join a 50+ win team and chase a ring in Portland (after initially demanding a trade to the Lakers). Nobody gave him any grief about it.

This I don't get. And the money? What? lol.

I was just telling mrs jammer... I don't think the owners in this league will EVER do what they did to the Lakers in blocking the CP3 deal. Not after how that's gone for the franchise. This I guess proves it. Because come the fuck on. Really? The Warriors need Durant like I need a hole in my head.


The CP3 deal was a trade. It was stupid that it was blocked.

But please explain how the league can block a free agency move? I'm fairly sure they'd find themselves in a restraint of trade lawsuit if they even hinted at doing something like that.



The league can't block a free agency move. Teams hope they can keep their stars but when the contract is up they are finding players will to sacrifice money for the chance to win a ring elsewhere.

None of these "experts" are up in arms when players are traded in the name of building a team for a championship. So they need to calm down when a player makes that same decision for himself.

Wade going to the Bulls on a 2 year contract. Bulls are giving Dunleavy to the Cavaliers to clear capspace.

The disrespect from the Heat organisation is crazy. I think its a good move from Wade to leave them and sign with the Bulls.

Yeah, I like Riley and I understand the idea of not paying Wade 20 Mil a year at 34/35.

However, Wade took cuts earlier to help bring Lebron to Miami so it would have been nice to compensate his loyalty and keep him in the organization.

I think Lebron had tried to get Dunleavy earlier so I think he is happy with the move.
