    I don't really mind this, the game is about defense, and they got a collection of offensive talent now. The Key is to poach them and not let them sign Festus Ezeli and the rest.

    I don't really see how this makes them a better team honestly.

    It'll be fun to watch the Warriors, but we will now get a less competitive playoffs. Can't blame KD, though. Guy should do whatever he wants.

    Its great for the league That team will draw major interest and the nba will benefit greatly from $$$$$$. He stated from the beginning he wanted to have fun and win. No better choice than moving from Oklahoma to California and have a chance to win a title

    The same cap space they are using for Durant now. The cap goes up dramatically. They sign Durant, then they sign Curry to his mega-deal.

    So they beat them in 7 and he decides to join them, ridiculous. At least with the Heat, Lebron had to try and get the team to win. This team was already winning. Good for OKC they didn't lock up Horford and got rid of Ibaka. Lost respect for him but the way the league is, cannot blame him too much. Warriors are protected and golden boys, might as well piggyback off of it...it's a loser mentality but that is how many players are nowadays.

    It's funny when people say GSW is a proven, well-run organization.

    This is a team that's been well run for the last 3-5 years. Prior to that, they were a joke of a franchise. This is what happens when you make instrumental hires(Jerry West), and (new) ownership is serious.

    **** this Rockets **** sometimes.

    I am definitely jealous, but aside from that.... I no longer have respect for KD. He alsmost beat the Warriors, should've had them. Got beat and pussed out to go to the team that smacked him.

    If you can't beat em, get better until you do

    Westbrook may leave next season and find a good team to join as well. Teams with smart cap management are primed to build a contender.

    With stats being spread around gsw players next year, Harden should win MVP at the least

    More competitive playoffs--much more at stake makes it much more interesting. Refer back to WCF and Finals, as examples.

    A true competitor beats the odds that are stacked up against them...it just makes it sweeter. Durant lost tons of respect across the league.

    A glorified ring chaser during the prime of his career.

    Maybe Curry just made a promise to join Durant and WB next year, if KD joins him this year.

    Book that as a rumor!
