    Well, the two teams that three-peated are different, and the GSW has a claim to the best team ever with Durant, going off of an individual season. Not sure that's being a fanboi.

    They also did blow that lead, which is pretty funny and will never be forgotten, which is why they're not the best ever, IMO, without Durant. With Durant the rules of the era probably dictate the winner.

    Regarding LBJ, dude has an argument to be the GOAT, although I'm not sold yet. Not sure that he's really all that sorry, or his record is sorry, within the context of his career. He's had more success as an individual than many franchises have.

    Kawhi should come home and be a Laker.

    Default Kevin Durant to sign with Brooklyn Nets, Kyrie Irving reportedly will join him

    NBA star Kevin Durant will sign a four-year deal to play for the Brooklyn Nets, bringing an abrupt end to one of the most hotly anticipated sagas of the league's free agency season.

    Durant's decision was confirmed in an Instagram post on an account for The Boardroom, an online series looking at sports business produced by the superstar and business partner Rich Kleiman. However, Fox Sports and other outlets reported that Durant was bound for Brooklyn approximately one hour before the official 6 p.m. ET Sunday start of the NBA's free agency period.

    ESPN reported that Durant's contract will be worth $164 million. The deal cannot be officially signed until July 6 because of the league's annual moratorium.

    The Golden State Warriors were expected to offer Durant a five-year, $221 million contract to remain with the team, one year and $57 million more than any other team could have offered. The New York Knicks and Los Angeles Clippers were also reported to be pursuing Durant.

    Knicks should have made the offer.

    Horford is savvy.

    Sixers gamble hard.

    Brogdon...is..worth it?

    unless he's just about that beach life, i don't really get why butler wanted to go to miami. . .

    the bucks ownership could end up regretting going cheap on brogdon in a HUGE way. . . it saves them some immediate coin, but it also lessens their championship odds-- which will in turn cost them money, if they miss out on a title (or titles) they could have won. . . more importantly, did they really want to let giannis know before he signs his extension that they aren't committed to doing everything in their power to put the best possible team around him?

    They missed the playoffs barely last year and he has a lot of faith in Pat Riley. Which, to be fair, makes sense because it's Pat Riley.

    The Bucks ownership managed to keep most of those guys together. I don't know if I would want to be in that position, because if Giannis wants another star player soon, it'll be hard to get them. I don't think they could have kept all of those guys, right?

    they could have kept brogdon (they had his rights), but it would have put them into the luxury tax. . .

    meanwhile in new york. . . the knicks continue to be lovable losers. . . they traded off porzingis for cap space because they were gonna get kyrie and durant-- and draft zion. . . instead, they now have julius randle and taj freaking gibson for approximately the same cost as one of those guys. . . bwahaha!!

    At this point I feel like Knicks fans have the right to jump ship with zero criticism. What a complete failure that organization is.

    Yeah...gotta pay it then. It's why I hate small market teams that are making money and then won't shell out. It's why I wish the NBA had no cap so the teams that cared weren't punished because of the lessers.

    The Knicks aren't lovable - they're morons. I feel badly for their fans. They can't grow hope in the garden.

    If Kawhi becomes a Laker (and I'm skeptical) I will...I will actually be a happy person.
