  • Kevin Durant Will Reportedly Opt Out, Restructure Contract With Warriors

With Stephen Curry out until at least the second round, with Patrick McCaw out and others banged up, and with some sloppy defense down the stretch (and some disinterested play), the Warriors look like they could be beaten.

"It has yet to be decided what contractual route Durant will take, sources say, but there are no real incentives - for himself or for the team - to take such a drastic reduction in pay this time around". He went on to help the Warriors win the 2017 National Basketball Association title, and he was named Finals MVP.

"I was talking with several coaches and execs from teams in the West morass - from 3 to 9 - the fear factor for the Warriors without Curry does not exist", Lowe said.

The Nuggets and the Timberwolves played for a berth in the playoffs, and the Jazz, Blazers, Thunder, and Spurs were all fighting for a better seed going into the last day.

While Curry is expected to return this postseason, the growing belief that the Warriors are vulnerable raises broader questions about how they'll round into form when the playoffs tip off on Saturday. The Warriors shelled out cash for Durant, but not as much as one would expect-he accepted a two-year, $51.25 million deal, though he clearly could have garnered a max contract elsewhere.

Unfortunately for the rest of the league, there is nearly no chance Durant opts out in search of a change of scenery. They'll face the Kawhi Leonard-less San Antonio Spurs in the first round, a team so disciplined and well-coached that they can make any series a challenge.

The Warriors had been in the top four in defensive efficiency for the previous four seasons. Should they advance, they'll play the victor of the Portland Trail Blazers-New Orleans Pelicans series. He has added a defensive element to his game this year making him one of, if not the best two-way player in the National Basketball Association.
