Spurs to open playoffs at Warriors after loss in regular season finale

  • Stephen Curry injury update Warriors star hoping to return in second round

Or, in this scenario, Durant could opt out and sign a five-year, $228 million contract with a starting salary of $39.4 million - the same contract Anthony Davis is eligible to sign with New Orleans in 2019. Additionally, Iguodala, despite having missed six of the Warriors' last seven games, should be able to play in Game 1 of the playoffs, according to Kerr.

Only four teams have ever made the NBA Finals in four straight seasons - the Warriors are looking to be the fifth team to do so and the first team since the 1960 Boston Celtics to claim three titles in that four-year stretch.

Kevin Durant signed a discounted two-year, $51 million deal with the Warriors last offseason that included an opt-out clause. "But I'm enjoying every moment of it, so I'm not trying to look too far down the line".

Scott said it was time to "take this same mission to D.C.", calling the nation's capital "dysfunctional". "It's dysfunctional. Scott can put his own money into the campaign, but those close to him say he will rely most heavily on funding from donors.

After winning his first championship, Durant turned down a $27.7 million player option to become an unrestricted free agent with the intention of re-signing with the Warriors for $10 million less.

On his podcast, "The Lowe Post," Lowe said some teams who would rather face the Warriors right now, without Curry and coming off a sloppy finish to the season, than some other teams.

We also go over Quinn Cook talking about his new two-year deal after bouncing back and forth between the National Basketball Association and G-League. We've been in that situation now three years in a row.

Cristiano Ronaldo has scored in all six of his Champions League games against Juventus , netting nine goals in total. Marco Asensio has revealed he had a poster of his "idol" Zinedine Zidane on his wall as a youngster.

Option B: He can sign a four-year max contract valued at around $158 million.

It seems plausible to believe that Durant will never get the credit he has earned unless he wins elsewhere at some point in his career. He quietly put together a season every bit as stellar as past year, averaging 26.4 points, 6.8 rebounds and 5.4 assists, while making 51.6 percent from the field and 41.9 percent from the 3-point line (he shot 88.9 percent from the foul line, leaving him five free throws short of the coveted 50-40-90 threshold). But what is often missing in that conversation is that he has become the best player (not most valuable) on the team.

He said: "They're all important for me and he'll be an important player until the end of the season". But in the second half, we came forward more and created danger. "True, nobody else does that".
