    LoL jeejee, I feel that's even more testament to the fact that KD quit on OKC.

    AI throws shade at the Cavs accomplishment.
    AI praises NEW TEAMMATE, KD via Thunder praise.

    I see you AI.

    Well, they dismantled SAS, too, with a different rotation, even.

    When he says, "we had to play perfect," says a lot about Donovan's defense, imo...and the need for Klay to go off.

    but I agree, doubt he says this if Durant doesn't sign with them.

    What a choke job by Durant in game 6 shooting something like 10-31 while Klay lit up OKC. Top 5 player my ass losing the close out game at home.

    We'll never knpw but I wonder if he would have left for GS if OKC would have won that game. The reasons he gave for going to GS had more to do with chemistry, sincerity along with the winning.

    Who knows, if Durant hadn't been dirtying his undies thinking about joining Draymond in Golden State and actually stayed focused, the Thunder might have won a title.

    That's why him joining the Warriors is such a punk move.

    Haha I don't know if they were better than Cleveland but I think AI has a good career in PR ahead of him.

    All of this stuff seems to be a very well planned and perfectly executed story.

    1. Go up 3-1 against an all time team
    2. Choke away the lead knowing full well you plan to join them
    3. Have the all time team that beat you choke away a 3-1 lead in the finals so you can't be labeled as joining a ready made champion
    4. Go ahead and join that team to create a potential dynasty

    Well played KD and Warriors.

    Yet the KD era has been characterized by choking in big moments, so I don't think that there's any evidence they were the better team, having lost to a team that eventually lost to another team.

    IMO they were the only team that outplayed them. OKC crushed the Spurs too. So they were really good

    Andre is really twisting that knife on everyone in OKC. A+ level trolling.

    I felt the same way, OKC was the team to beat....but hey, their decay started a long time ago when they traded Harden to us =)

    That fool, Chris Broussard, tried to argue LeBron did the same.

    Guess what.... NO IT WASN'T
