Sad result. To you guys Stateside, having a Kiwi playing in any final in the NBA is a bit of a buzz for us, so that is why some of us wanted the Thunder to pull it off.

The fight to actually make the BIG final might not actually help the Cavaliers. Up until these matches no one could beat them.

Congrats to the Thunder on a great series. They played tough. Durant and Westbrook have a ton of talent but I have to say, I didn't appreciate Westbrook laughing at Curry during a press conference after game 4. Who's laughing now? I have yet to see the Warriors players disrespect or make fun of another team or their players. I think Durant leaves OKC after this. He may end up on the Warriors in a trade for Barnes and someone else. It's the someone else that's the big question. When Westbrook wins a final he will have reason to gloat. Right now he's just another player that didn't help his team into the finals.
I'd much rather ask for forgiveness than ask for permission.

Well said John. My Glenmorangie was all set to go if the Thunder took it out.

Back in the cupboard for another year. :cry:

I hope Durant comes to Houston...might give the Rockets a fighting chance...we're getting nothing out of Dwight Howard, and Harden got too distracted with one of the Kardashian sisters...need some players who really want to compete...seems like these folks are just out for showmanship rather than competing.

 I'll bet a hush puppie that Durant stays put . OKC just needs to move Westbrook to shooting guard and bring in a true point . Sorry about what has happened to the Rockets , letting Chandler Parsons go was a mistake , he was the scrapper and defensive guy . As good as the beard is , he needs some support .

I think Durant playing with Harden is just like playing with Westbrook. OKC is already a better team than Houston so why go there? The Warriors really do share the ball. Look at the series vs. OKC. Curry knew he was off and dished the ball to Klay. That series showed how good Klay really is. He is happy to play second to Curry be he can step up if Curry is having an off night(s) or can't go. Winning seems to be the #1 goal to the Warriors, they don't care who is the "best" on the team.

 Even with the new salary cap I don't think GS can pay him enough after dealing with Curry and Thompson . Who would the Warriors give up to get Durant ? His style really would not compliment their style . No , he will more than likely stay in OKC . Remember , there are no guarantees of a ring anywhere , and the Thunder were this close twice now .

I think the Warriors have the cap room to do it. They would most likely give up Barnes and 2 draft picks. I think Durant stays in OKC or becomes the Deion Sanders of the NBA..... goes to the Bay Area to get a ring.

So far as Harden, Durant has been there and done that. 

IIRC Durant has another year on his contract in OKC.  After that, who knows?  Speculation is DC.
