I mean wasn't this known all year? Durant's not a money hungry guy. He's not driven by competition. He doesn't really care about "legacy." He just wants to be on a loaded team where he doesn't need to stress himself out about losing because it makes it less fun for him if he doesn't know he can win. GS gives him that. Perfect spot for his personality.

This sums it all about him. His personality seems chill and he can't handle pressured moments.

CP3 would likely do the same thing to improve the Clippers roster or leave in order to win. Same for Steph if he was in the same situation :nod:. It's not all about money :no:

I don't think that's fair to say he can't handle them. He just doesn't want to. Some guys are just competitive in nature (Westbrook, Kobe, MJ, KG, etc.) and they get an adrenaline rush from competition. Durant doesn't seem to. He just like having fun.

He can't handle them, though. When we were out with WB, we should have beaten Memphis. Granted, Memphis was a pretty good team but KD just couldn't score at all. Then when it was vs the Warriors, it happened again. He's shown very little that he can handle it so moving to Warriors would prevent it before ever happening. I don't think it's a coincidence that RWB was the alpha of that team. That wasn't the case in the rookie season but I think he sensed that KD wasn't going to develop into that kind of player so he took it upon himself. KD has a LeBron-type mentality but his game is predicated on scoring and that's where it gets messy for him.

Yes, he choke and was timid to take open shots in game 7 cause pressure was too intense for him. Now he can let Steph be the man to take the big shots when he chokes up again but maybe by announcing this news, the criticism will be less hateful. Maybe but that's my logical guess behind it lol.

Gosh I'm good...:nod: :dance:

The endorsements you make being a city is kinda irrelevant these days. You guys act like some of these athletes are restricted to their city only. Unless that business is local (which must mean it is a smaller business), you aren't getting paid much anyways. LeBron has endorsements from Nike before he even got to the NBA. If you're good, you're getting endorsements even if you live in an igloo. No doubt, though. I'd rather live in the Bay area than OKC.

That's what I was ranting about in the Millsap thread. Steph should follow next and I believe he will. The Warriors have a unique chance to dominate the league for the next 4-5 years. All the other teams are overpaying for players and settling for mediocrity. KD and Steph make 3x more money selling shoes than Tom Brady does winning superbowls. Take less, get a great rim protector on the team and you're good to go while the Celtics give Gordon Hayward 35M per year and get swept in the finals.

The article mentions him hanging out with Silicon Valley Venture Capital guys, that association alone could be worth more than his contract. Getting in on those deals is who you know at the beginning and having the money.
In OKC he was probably exposed to gas and oil and other energy deals.

That's not called endorsements. And it doesn't take moving near Silicon Valley to get business done. There are professionals out there that handle these things. You really think KD is out there doing all the financials on whether or not a decision is good? He's hiring people to do it for him.

I was thinking this at first but I think Durant gives the nod to Curry and let's him be the highest paid Warrior. Curry has talked about how he knows why he signed the deal he did but that he thinks about how he's the 5th or 6th highest paid when he's the best player on the team. Granted it was before KD joined but I'm sure he feels the same. I bet the take similar deals and their both not MAX but just like in Miami with Bron, Curry will be the highest paid even if only by 1 million.

Klay is expendable. I hope the warriors trade him for some assets so he doesn't walk away for nothing.

We could never replace his Shooting. but defensively you can. Would be hard for the Warriors to pay all 4.

I actually think Klay is getting plenty of shots to still be a force, and a huge percentage of his shots last night were very good looks. Klay is struggling because klay is missing makeable shots. he is not being frozen out like people are assuming. I mean last night, he was literally being forcefed great looks and he just wasnt focused enough to drill a reasonable percentage of them. Even his open lay ups, he wouldnt go in one fluid motion, he like stopped up faked and then laid it in when there was nobody within 5 feet of him

Curry should get the max and a boatload more... this guy was on a $44m 4 year contract. Can't shortchange the guy any longer. He deserves it for making that Warriors team what it is so KD can join.. If anything, KD should give some money up so Curry can get whatever he wants.

curry will get what he wants no matter what. KD will take less (meaning he will not opt out of his 2 yr deal from last summer) in order to allow the team to go over the cap to sign livingston and iggy.

He could have said it anytime instead of before the finals for a reason or not say it publicly at all since I'm sure he told his teammates especially to Steph out of respect long ago like probably during the off season he was going to do just that. Making it public is for show only but you probably think Iggy had no clue until now :laugh:

And Steph should accept the super max instead of doing the same thing like some people are thinking. It's about time he is the highest paid player on this team!!!

Nah, that'd be stacking the deck. But maybe CP3 joins as their sixth man guard and maybe Lacomb gets a buyout from the Pels for AD and then sign him, then get him a Google endorsement deal for $100 million a year to get him his money.


I mean, that's the only thing that matters, right?


Seriously though, I can't imagine Curry going too hard for a max, not like they'll try to under pay him again. Honestly with the big shoe deals and that Bay Area endorsement money, who cares about a few million if you're on a team that stacked? Can't blame KD for taking less and keeping some key guys around.


(In regards to endorsement deals) Much like most things, money is ruining things.

CP3 would likely do the same thing to improve the Clippers roster or leave in order to win. Same for Steph if he was in the same situation :nod:. It's not all about money :no:
Yet no matter what CP3 does he wont have a shot at a championship as long as GS stays together. CP3 wpuld do better going to say the Cavs to be able to win one.

You started off on the wrong foot with saying Steph is humble. He's arrogant, but in a good way.

I agree in that I don't think he's bitter at all.

I'm CERTAIN the Warriors won't force him to take the Super Max.So you are basing how he act towards some opposing teams to come to your conclusion that he is an arrogant person? ...the same way you had concluded about Jackson as a person back when he was fired that started all of the bickering and nonsense cause you don't get it.

You obviously know little about Steph other than what he does on the court and decided to characterize that way as a person too which is sad :(

Steph is one of the most humbled person to ever play the game and always feel blessed to be in the situation he is in regardless of his contract so to say he is bitter about it show you still know little about him and only speaking if it was you instead :(

The Dubs will insist he get the Super max whether he likes it or not since it's a wise team business and marketing move to have the best player on the team signing the highest possible contract. Anything less would not be acceptable to this organization.
:no:

This paints a different picture

Anytime someone needs to remind themselves every day to let it go it still bugs them. He has a good head on his shoulders money wise and understands why he signed when he did but those quotes from him show someone that is still thinking about it.

Likes the organization and his team.

Has the chance to win multiple titles realistically.

Will get paid no matter what, even if he gives a discount.

Might as well stay.

If I was a warriors fan is be thrilled to hear this...but for everyone else, it's just kind of making the nba unwatchable from a competitive standpoint.

Ratings for game 3 up 22%. I think it's unwatchableness is over-stated.

I kinda wonder what the market by market returns on those ratings are.

It's year 1. People want to see A) LeBron lose or B) the warriors win.

You don't think it will get old after a few seasons (for the average nba fan)

Assuming GS is healthy they'll be just as dominant.

The story will change. The Warriors will get old, the bench will get thinner and thinner.
