Nikola Jokic is rooting for the Cavaliers, against Kevin Durant

Jokic hints at his thoughts on loyalty Laura Cristaldi is a friend of the Denver Stiffs and the world’s biggest Danilo Gallinari fan. She’s also a writer for Somosbasket and recently reported on an interesting quote from Nikola Jokic when asked about his rooting interest in the NBA finals. "I hope the Cavaliers win," - said Jokic. "Because Kevin Durant has gone to a team that was already very strong. But we know they play very well, so I think we will be having spectacular matches ." It’s a fairly innocuous comment but possibly provides a glimpse into Jokic’s mind frame about...

LeBron James, Kevin Durant and the rivalry that never happened

LeBron James, Kevin Durant and the rivalry that never happened

But maybe it still can. Rivalries are often what makes sports great. The Yankees and the Sox, Ali and Frazier, Ohio State and Michigan, and so on. There is something thrilling about the feeling that a certain game means a little bit more — or maybe a lot more — than all the rest. You can throw the records out, as they say. We love rivalries so much that, as with many sports narratives, we sometimes try to manufacture them. But great rivalries were never the invention of sports media executives. The great ones, the ones that really do transcend the sport, were born naturally. They are...

Re-Explain One Klay: 2016 Game 6 vs OKC

Re-Explain One Klay: 2016 Game 6 vs OKC

On the one-year anniversary of Klay’s greatest game, which got the Dubs Kevin Durant and changed the whole league’s present and future. Klay’s Greatest Game and Kevin Durant One year and a day ago was Klay Thompson’s Game 6, a leap forward in the development of modern Klaytheism (as Haley O'Shaughnessy puts it). In my mind this is Klay’s greatest game, even though 37 and 60 were more special events, but they didn’t come under the ultimate pressure of win or go home. If the Warriors had lost Game 7 to OKC, then Game 6 would have been just a great game. Instead, it became,...

Warriors’ Kevin Durant seeking more than a title

Kevin Durant, white towel wrapped around his torso, surveyed a postgame spread of bagels, sandwich fixings and granola bars. “How does it feel?” a reporter asked after the Game 4 win over San Antonio that had just secured the Warriors another berth in the NBA Finals. Because when Durant signed with Golden State in July, his top objective wasn’t to reach the Finals — or even win them, for that matter. “He doesn’t seem like he’s overjoyed or anything like that,” Golden State forward Draymond Green, one of Durant’s closest friends, said Monday after Game 4 of the Western...

NBA Finals 2017: Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant put these idiotic parity complaints to rest

There have been numerous bad takes about the Warriors this season and we’re going to keep hearing them until The Finals give us some actual basketball games to talk about. With the NBA Finals comes more media attention. And with more media attention comes more recycling of bad takes as everyone attempts to come up with an original story. One of those bad recycled takes is the idea that a) the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers sweeping through the playoffs is bad for the NBA and it b) represents a lack of parity in the league. Stephen Curry did a pretty good job of addressing...
