Kevin Durant: My Responsibility Is To Myself, Not The NBA's Competitive Balance

  • Kevin Durant

LeBron James and his Cleveland Cavaliers have become the punchline of many jokes during these NBA Finals, so you can't blame the three-time NBA champ for trying to deflect some of that attention elsewhere. I come in and be the best teammate and player I can be until this thing is over with.

"I mean, it's nearly like playing the (New England) Patriots, you can't have mistakes". "I feel like it's harder to stand out when you have great players around you", Durant told Yahoo Sports. I pride myself on standing out wherever I am.

While Durant isn't planning to leave the Warriors any time soon, James could depart from the Cavaliers for a second time when free agency begins next month. They play Game 4 in Cleveland on Friday. "So to be one of guys, that's what I always wanted". And that's the reason why I came here - an unselfish environment where they just care about the game.

Warriors light up Cavaliers in third quarter, win NBA Finals
The possibility remains that Cleveland could retool and make another run, but doing so would require some serious creativity. And now, the National Basketball Association off-season or "The Summer of Lebron" officially begins.

The Warriors countered with more depth with rookie Jordan Bell (playoff career-high 10 points), JaVale McGee (10 points) and Andre Iguodala (eight points), who played after missing the past six playoff games with a left knee injury. "All I want to do in my life, while I'm healthy, is to work on my game and enjoy the game and not worry about nothing else. All that other stuff, that's on y'all".

Nothing is more important than the Kevin Durant Charity Foundation, which serves at-risk youth from low-income backgrounds, providing them with educational, athletic and social programs.

I believe Boston could challenge the Warriors next year, when Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward are healthy, and I believe LeBron's best chance to take down the Warriors would by teaming up with Paul George on the Lakers. They ain't paying me enough to dictate the National Basketball Association. So when the Warriors needed a shot, Durant drained a go-ahead 3-pointer that gave the Warriors a 106-100 lead with 49.8 seconds remaining.
