I must confess I’ve actually watched these last two games of the Rockets vs. Warriors series as the Stanley Cup Playoffs have a lull until the Finals begin in a few days.
Amazingly… this Super Team from Oakland has somehow fucked around and now find themselves down 3-2 in the series and one game away from elimination. Truly amazing. It almost has that same feel as in 2016 when the Thunder got up 3-1 on the Warriors and then reverted back to hero ball and promptly lost three straight games. Kevin Durant then slithered over to the Warriors’ side on July 4th when Jerry West whispered all the right things into Durant’s ears that changed the course of NBA history.
But here we are again and Kevin Durant in these last two games has basically sucked. Not quite as bad as those regretful last three minutes in Game 6 in Oklahoma City, but Durant has been bad.
So does this mean Durant will be in Houston next season if ‘his’ Warriors choke and lose this series?
Why the fuck not?
Durant played college ball at Texas and his mother and his handlers and his stupid brother Tony could promote this as some sort of Coming Home move.
Then LeBron, Chris Paul, and Paul George could go play for the Jerry West and Steve Balmer’s LA Clippers team.
Can you imagine how much better OKC would have been this season with say Eric Gordon embracing the Sixth Man role and not having to wait for Carmelo to get up and down the court?
So based on what we’ve seen from Durant, Daryl Morey, and Jerry West then maybe what we could see next season is Durant playing for the team which just beat him.
Kudos to Chris Paul, Eric Gordon, Trevor Ariza, PJ Tucker and Clint Capela for making this an interesting series.
I wonder if Durant leaves if the Warrior fans will boo him and call him Cupcake?
Here’s Steve Kerr in Game 5 basically risking the wrath of Kevin Durant, his mother, the agents, and his stupid brother Tony by telling Durant to pass the fucking ball early in the shot clock. I bet Daryl Morey would never allow Mike D’Antoni to talk to Durant like that.
