Kevin Durant Takes Low-Key Shot at LeBron James While Praising Himself

Kevin Durant Takes Low-Key Shot at LeBron James While Praising Himself

Durant started hot in the first quarter and just never cooled down, attacking every mismatch, making every play up to and including a back-breaking 3-pointer in the final minutes that echoed the one he hit in last year's Finals.

Durant now holds a $26,250,000 player option for next season that he is expected to waive in order to become a free agent and sign a long-term deal with the Warriors. By Game Score, it was the sixth-best individual Finals performance going back to 1983-84.

After winning his second consecutive NBA Finals MVP following the Golden State Warriors' Game 4 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers, Warriors forward Kevin Durant spoke on a number of different topics.

Then after the game, Perkins stirred the pot more when he said he didn't think he was a problem the Warriors wanted to deal with.

Durant spoke to Yahoo Sports afterwards and explained why it's easier to play on a team that's full of people who don't possess the same talent as him and harder to play on a team that is stacked with stars.

"I mean, it's nearly like playing the (New England) Patriots, you can't have mistakes".

The forward, now a two-time National Basketball Association champion, spoke with ESPN after the win and said his second year with the team was about him "trying to figure out my place and where I stand". "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". And that's the reason why I came here - an unselfish environment where they just care about the game. "All that other stuff, that's on y'all".

KD had one of the best Finals games ever on Wednesday, and LeBron James spent a go portion of his time with the press discussing how Durant has been such a difference maker. "And I feel like these guys embraced me and I feel like I'm a Warrior".

There has been plenty of discussion about Durant's decision to join the Warriors.
