The Golden State Warriors were already considered a powerhouse team after winning an NBA championship and going an unprecedented  73-9 the next season, then they did something incredible, they signed Kevin Durant.  The former Oklahoma City Thunder star was the catch of the offseason and had many people already declaring the Warriors the next NBA champions.  The move of course did not go over well with the other NBA team owners.

Warriors CEO Joe Lacob feels the chill directed at him and his team for the execution and extravagance displayed in the NBA-altering decision to pursue and persuade and eventually sign Kevin Durant.

Some of the cool air is coming from the commissioner’s office. Most is from his brethren in the club of NBA owners.

NBA commissioner Adam Silver said Durant leaving Oklahoma City to sign with the powerful Warriors was “not ideal from a league standpoint,” and several owners have expressed their dismay, suggesting it would be addressed in the next collective bargaining agreement.

Lacob shrugs and grins.

“I know there are a lot of other owners and teams that are mad at us, at me,” Lacob said Monday. “I felt that very much when I was in Las Vegas this summer.

“Sorry, we got him. We worked hard until we got him.”
