feltbot: Kevin Durant’s legacy just died He’s now just the guy between Harrison Barnes and Andrew Wiggins. Kevin Durant: I’ve been dead since July 4th, 2016, but kudos to the dubs and my boy Steezy, a Fillmore legend, the guy has waited his whole life for a parade on Market st.

Michael Lee @Mr Michael Lee
Bob Myers deserves a big raise. In the last decade he is: Draymond drafted. Signed Steph to a $44 million extension that made possible the arrival of Iguodala & KD. Hired Kerr. He didn’t just let KD walk; exchanged it for what became Wiggins & Kuminga. Brought 4 rings to the Bay. Cha-ching. – 3:02 pm

An inside look at how the Draymond Green-Warriors partnership persevered and a plane ride to remember, in @TheAthletic
They talked about life, children, marriage. And yes, even the Durant-Green capsule which was a bigger deal than they let on at the time.

KD without Steph

Warriors won a ring before Kevin Durant. They got a ring with Kevin Durant. They got a ring after Kevin Durant. – 12:14 pm

Aaron J. Fentress @Aaron JFtress
My God, Jeff Van Gundy The Warriors’ victory without Durant is NOT remarkable. They won a title before Durant and had a 73-game season before Durant. 🤦🏽‍♂️ – 12:00 pm

KD really left it to Kyrie pic.twitter.com/882WTKCXPd11:59 pm

Carl Steward @foolishness
Nothing against Kevin Durant, who was great here, but the Warriors also exorcised the ghost of his match. Most experts thought the Golden State title era was over the day he left. Almost everyone, in fact, including me. That’s what makes this championship so remarkable. – 11:54 pm

— Beat KD, Giannis, Jimmy
— Dropped 46 down 3-2 at Bucks
— Dropped 13 assists in finals debut
— Won 2 games 7s

It was a bad breakup, but yeah… Draymond Green was right about the Warriors not needing KD. – 11:27 pm

Durant blah blah blah.
This warriors outfit is a dynasty for all time. – 10:38 pm

Dan Favale @danfavale
steph curry never *needed* a final mvp, not for his legacy, not to prove anything independent of kd, not even to silence the talking heads and combat soldiers who insisted he do.
he went out and got one anyway. – 10:38 pm

Steph Curry has 5 games with 5+ trips in this year’s finals alone.

Steph wins Finals MVP and also claims the “wins” by iggy and KD – 10:37 pm

More about this plot

The Celtics’ biggest need in free agency is a 3-and-D player who can give Tatum and Brown some relief. Bruce Brown and Gary Payton II could be natural targets for the Celtics with the MLE contributor, given the prioritization of defensive players, even if they don’t make good three-pointers. -via HoopsHype / June 17, 2022

A day after Stephen Curry added a fourth NBA title and first-ever Finals MVP award to his illustrious resume, his alma mater Davidson announced that the Golden State Warriors star would have his number retired by the school in an August ceremony. . Davidson sporting director Chris Clunie said on Friday that Curry’s number 30 would be the first to be retired by the school during an Aug. 31 ceremony. -via ESPN / June 17, 2022

As part of the celebration, Curry will be inducted into the Davidson Athletics Hall of Fame and receive his bachelor’s degree. Curry completed his BA in Sociology in May but was unable to attend the graduation ceremony during the NBA playoffs. -via ESPN / June 17, 2022
