When Kevin Durant chose the Golden State Warriors in free agency, many assumed they were automatically going to win the NBA championship this upcoming season.  During an interview with Rachel Nichols, LeBron James discussed Durant joining the Warriors and what it means for the champion Cleveland Cavaliers.

On the Warriors signing Kevin Durant:

“I was like ‘wow’, I think everybody said ‘wow.’  It would’ve been ‘wow’ if he would’ve re-signed as well, so I didn’t really have much of a reaction to it.”

On if it’ll be harder to repeat since Durant joined Warriors:

“I would be short changing myself and shortchanging my team and the rest of the league if I only thought about Golden State.  There’s so many other great teams that’s assembled this summer, it’s a lot of teams that got better, and we have to continue to get better.”

Where he is on the hill in terms of getting older:

“I know I’m on the other side of the hill being I’m about to be 14 (years in the league) but my hill, I’m not going down the hill right now, I’m still climbing.”

He also discusses wanting to own a team in the future, his ESPYs speech with “The Brotherhood” on social injustice and violence, and wanting to be the greatest of all time (chasing Jordan).
