After Kevin Durant chose the Golden State Warriors in free agency, they had to trade Andrew Bogut and Harrison Barnes to the Dallas Mavericks because of the salary cap.  Ahead of the Warriors 116-95 win over the Mavericks on Wednesday, Bogut spoke about his old team.  Bogut said he was disappointed about the trade, but he understood why it had to happen.  He also had some candid words when asked about the organization questioning his durability after a Game 5 knee injury in the Finals ended his postseason & the many other injuries he’s had.  Bogut also talked about the Thunder who had a 3-1 lead over the Warriors before shockingly losing the Western Conference Finals.

Golden State star Klay Thompson previously said he was ‘not sacrificing sh-t,’ and isn’t changing his game with the addition of Kevin Durant, who left the Oklahoma City Thunder in free agency this summer to join the Warriors.  Despite Thompson’s previous claims, he’s opened the season with a shooting slump and many people are wondering if it had anything to do with the acquisition of Durant.

This past offseason was a busy one as we’ve seen quite a few shakeups in teams around the league.  While we might have an interesting season, for the most part, many people assume we’ll get the trilogy of Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Golden State Warriors.  Each team has won one NBA championship against the other, but the Warriors losing that 3-1 lead continues to be a running joke and their out for blood this time around.

The Golden State Warriors had an incredible season, finishing 73-9.  They started last season with 24 straight wins.  Since they added superstar Kevin Durant this summer, it was assumed that they would be even better this year.  Well, that win streak to start the season is already off the table because they lost the opening game to the San Antonio Spurs.  Not only did they lose, they lost BADLY as the Spurs won 129-100.  There were jokes on the Warriors, but the Durant really took a killing on social media as many still disapprove of him joining the team that beat him in the Western Conference finals just a couple months ago.

In case you haven’t noticed, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook have been battling in the media with each of them getting two covers of major magazines (Durant –Rolling Stone/SLAM & Westbrook – Sports Illustrated/GQ) to tell their side of the story.  Earlier today I posted the excerpts from Durant’s Rolling Stone article talking about why he left the Thunder.  In this excerpt, Durant talks about the moments he decided to rock with the Warriors.

I still remember July 4th when Kevin Durant posted the first-person article on The Player’s Tribune announcing that he was leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder for the Golden State Warriors.  I remember checking Russell Westbrook’s social media to see if the outspoken guard said anything about losing his partner in crime.   I also remember seeing the picture of the cupcakes he posted, thinking it was his way of showing he’s unbothered.  Well, it turns out I was wrong.

Since July 4, 2016, the day Kevin Durant declared his independence from the Oklahoma City Thunder, we’ve read and heard various reports about why he chose the Warriors, how Russell Westbrook factored into the decision, and even derogatory remarks about Durant’s personality.  Durant officially went from one of the nicest, most loved stars, to a villain in the league.  In a cover story for Rolling Stone, Durant delved into his childhood, his experiences and gave the most in depth look into a decision that changed the face of the NBA.

The Golden State Warriors organization was named the 2016 ENCORE winner on Monday night. It’s a prestigious award, given by the Stanford Graduate School of Business to the entrepreneurial company of the year. Past winners include Google, Apple and Twitter. This is the first time a sports organization has won it.  It was a big deal for the organization, so much so that majority owner Joe Lacob not only showed up to accept the award, but brought Bob Myers, Kevin Durant and Andre Iguodala with him.  During the ceremony, they each candidly answered questions about their Finals loss and getting Durant in free agency.

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.
