Warriors' Durant hints at retirement -- when he's 35

news: Kevin Love admits pondering about 'what ifs' and Kyrie Irving

Durant has said all along he wants to stay put, especially after winning a pair of championships in his first two seasons with Golden State.

Bryant was a guest onThe HoopsHype Podcast with Alex Kennedy on Monday and playfully discussed the idea of playing with the Warriors as he recalled an offer from Warriors general manager Bob Myers to forgo retirement and join the team.

"Kobe [Bryant], M.J. (Jordan), LeBron, Kareem [Abdul-Jabbar], those dudes drive me, they push me every day to get to that level, to that standard and I want to be able to sit back and talk to them about basketball one day", Durant said.

After Cleveland Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith committed an all-time blunder at the end of regulation of Game 1 of the 2018 NBA Finals, LeBron James was left in utter disbelief.

Durant, who turns 30 in September, could ink a five-year deal in July.

However, the defending champions, spearheaded by former MVP Kevin Durant, overcame a scare from the Rockets during the Western Conference Finals to reach their fourth-straight NBA Finals - albeit in less bedazzling fashion than spectators in the NBA had come to expect.

"So I don't think that's going to define me as a player".

"[The Durant comments were] just for the media, he can't have anything he wants", Myers said. "Before his Warriors exit I want to enjoy as much time with him as possible". We don't know who will be drafted where, or what star free agent will be signing with what team just yet, but in the interest of being thorough, let's take a look at the five teams most likely to win the 2019 NBA Finals. "I feel like it's harder to stand out when you have great players around you", Durant told Yahoo! "I would say there is stylistic tension - but not personal tension", Kerr said.
