    Can someone transcribe what was said? I'm not in a position to be able to listen to the video.

    They were joking, this Kawakami guy is one of the worst reporters, he always tries to make something out of nothing.

    The party host put Bob Myers on the spot, with his promise of giving Durant's whatever he wants with his future contract, so he made the joke, everyone was laughing, include both Curry and KD who sat next to each other.

    Their owner and GM are a pair of arrogant douchebags. It will be a glorious day when the Rockets sweep them next season in the WCF.

    It does not matter if they joking or whateva. Myers was an idiot and he took a shot at KD for no reason given he is GM of that said team and given how KD is insecure person nr 1, 2 and 3 in the league and could flip the switch on anything, all i can say is:

    Me either, but Tim Kawakami is a decent Bay Area journalist -- too bad he wrote for the Athletic.

    The joke, folks, was this, or the one I heard: Myers basically said KD wasn't like the real warriors because he hadn't been here in the harder times. It was not funny. It was weird, and it was harsh for no reason to the dude who's been your finals MVP twice while Stephanie just dances around and takes games off to just shoot bricks. I'll never forget the game 7 Worriers loss when Curry couldn't shake Kevin Love on the perimeter. LOL.

    Reporter: how do you draft these guys, how do you find these, how do you put this team together that works so well with Steve, then I heard you tell KD he can have whatever contract he wants next year

    Myers: well that was just for the media, he can't have anything like that at all
    Kerr: Midlevel

    Reporter: because last year you told Curry he can have any contract he wants too

    Myers: ya..so..that was different..he's been here since the way before days..he's earned it

    (crowd: ooooooooooooo)

    Reporter: and there ended the warriors cohesion right there

    ------------------------
    Durant...they don't see as one of them bruh. You should have seen it coming before you went ring chasing.

    Why did the chicken cross the road?

    To join a 73 win, stacked team to win two easy titles.

    I thought the Athletic was just a collection of fired ex-ESPN writers using their connections and access to keep a job covering the "home" team.

    Douche Myers may have been joking but those kinda jokes are not spoken unless they have a grain of Truth in them. That's what happens when you join a team that had a ring and was one game away from winning a second one on a season they won an NBA record 73 times.
