OAKLAND, Calif. - Kevin Durant, the back-to-back NBA Finals MVP, told ESPN on Friday that he could see himself walking away from the game at 35 years of age, five seasons from now. The Golden State Warriors star forward is right in the middle of his prime.
"But I will focus on the people that love me the most, that encourage me, that pour into me and vice versa". "Before his Warriors exit I want to enjoy as much time with him as possible".
"I heard him say that, but I'll believe it when it happens", Kleiman said.
On an open market, it's easy to imagine Durant being paid far more than $40 million a year.
Durant, who turns 30 in September, is scheduled to become a free agent this offseason but has already said he plans to remain with the Warriors.
Interviewed on stage by broadcaster Bob Fitzgerald, when asked about his comments about giving Durant "whatever he wants", Myers backtracked and called it a joke leading to a rather awkward exchange with even head coach Steve Kerr chiming in to take a little shot at Durant.
EU, NATO welcome Greek-Macedonian deal
Speaking at a news conference in the Macedonian capital, Skopje, Zaev described the deal as a "historic agreement of the century". Athens contends that the name Macedonia represents a territorial claim over Greece's northern province, also named Macedonia .
"Certain challenges, some were apparent, some not", Myers said.
In recent comments, Durant said he feels like a flawless fit - not only on his team, but also in the Bay Area in general. "Not really. I think a lot of players might be afraid to come play for us".
"For sure this was the toughest of the four, mainly because of the cumulative effect of doing this four years in a row, getting to the Finals four years in a row, it's just hard".

Kevin Durant already said he'd be re-signing with the Warriors sometime this summer, but even with that vow in hand, the National Basketball Association champions are prepared to give him whatever he wants.
How it all shakes out is anyone's guess, but the Warriors know it has to shake - at least a bit - if they're going to be back in the same position this time next year.
