Kevin Durant Gives NSFW Response on Haters Questioning His Move to Warriors

There's no Tony Parker, for the first time in almost two decades.

The Warriors (57-25) secured the top seeding in the Western Conference by winning six in a row before losing their season finale.

San Antonio is in the postseason for a record-tying 22nd consecutive season.

The Detroit Pistons provided no further indication Saturday if their most valuable player will be ready for the start of their playoff series.

The playoffs always bring surprises.

Durant explained that his experience with Golden State has been rewarding, despite the negative attention that comes with the job.

The Warriors, of course, haven't just been going to the postseason every year, but getting all the way to the finals once they do. The Rockets won in a five-game series, but that series was a lot closer than those five games would make it seem - especially when you consider how banged-up the Jazz were by the end of it.

Over the regular season, the Milwaukee Bucks have proven to be the most formidable challenger to the vacant throne.

That's a really good omen for the Bucks. Finding and conquering the NBA Finals in both the last two seasons, Durant has made the Dubs arguably the most unstoppable team of all time. Those clubs are the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers (50), the 2016-17 Golden State Warriors (48), the 1970-71 Bucks (47) and the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls (46).

Even though he's garnered a lot of hatred and criticism for joining one of the best teams in the league - and creating a powerhouse franchise in the NBA - Durant doesn't look at it as an easy decision.

Durant came to the Warriors after eight seasons with the Thunder.

LeBron James nearly got into the club past year, coming as close as humanly possible - he scored 2,999 points for Cleveland. Pachulia closed out aggressively, Leonard didn't have space to land safely and he missed the rest of that series.

Leonard has won a title previously with the San Antonio Spurs and is in a select group who can genuinely have a chance when going toe to toe with Kevin Durant.

Whether or not Griffin can play in Game 1, having two days off before Games 2 and 3 will help.

The No. 2 seed in the East is the Toronto Raptors and they will be playing the Orlando Magic.

Warriors guard Stephen Curry is on pace to catch Ray Allen and become the NBA's all-time 3-point leader sometime in the 2020-21 season. In the postseason, Curry is about to become No. 1. Ultimately, the goal is to get in the playoffs.

It's finally here. The moment National Basketball Association fans have been eagerly awaiting for months has finally arrived, as the National Basketball Association playoffs begin this weekend.

Every playoff team is assured of some of the pie, which is often used to fund bonuses for players and team staff. To give credit where credit is due, the Clippers deserve to be commended for making the playoffs despite trading away Tobias Harris and being the far less popular LA-based team. Conference finalists get another $638,094. Led by James Harden, the Rockets made more 3-pointers this season than any team in National Basketball Association history.

"One begins in Alabama, where there's a proprietary way big black bodies get treated by the people who need them to win ballgames".

The East's healthiest team are the second-seeded Toronto Raptors (58-24), who open today at home against the seventh-seeded Orlando Magic (42-40). The fifth-seeded Jazz knocked off Oklahoma City in 2018, the Los Angeles Clippers in 2017 and Denver in 2010. No. 6 OKC Thunder No. 4 Houston Rockets vs.

DeMarcus Cousins is No. 1 on a list that nobody wants to lead.

This season, Durant has battled the stress of rumors that he is heading to the Knicks and the words he exchanged with Draymond Green in a huddle in a game against the Clippers at the beginning of the season. The Celtics have floundered all season, struggling to establish locker room chemistry, shoot the three ball and incorporate players such as Gordon Hayward and Jaylen Brown.

At the age of 34, James proved that he is still one of the best players on the planet, averaging 27.4 points, 8.5 rebounds and 8.3 assists this season. Based on the way last season went, the milestone game will come late in the conference-semifinal round or early in the conference-final round.
