He is often a man of few words, but Durant let his thoughts be known Friday night after the Warriors won their second consecutive title by finishing off a sweep of the Cleveland Cavaliers. All the Warriors do is win, on their own terms.
It must be noted that tip off was a little after 9 p.m. on the east coast.
And what will it take for these Warriors - this dynasty that has reshaped not just the NBA but how the modern-day game of basketball is played - to surpass all the other dynasties before them? He averaged 28 points and 11 rebounds in the final three games of the series and also had a ridiculous alley-oop pass to himself in the first quarter of Game 3.
For Cleveland, the loss sends the team into an off-season of great uncertainty as James, the best player of his generation, could sign elsewhere as a free agent after July 1, which is widely expected given the relative lack of talent on the roster.
Don't rule out the Houston Rockets, who pushed Golden State to a game seven in the post-season. A father of three, his priorities have changed again, and this time the decision is more complicated. "You know, I watched that team a lot during the year".
"Does it matter?" Durant said of being picked over Curry.
LeBron James praised Golden State's "stacked" team before the Warriors completed the sweep Friday. I don't think anybody's even anxious about that type of stuff. "I could never have dreamt of three titles in four years".
"K.D. has been awesome these last two years, especially in the finals and so deserving of back-to-back finals MVPs", Curry said. "Every player does not want to - sad to say - but every player doesn't want to compete for a championship and be in a position where every possession is pressure". Kevin Love had his third-straight impressive offensive game, JR Smith got his groove back at home, and the recently-freed Rodney Hood provided his team with an additional offensive spark. John Stockton, All-time assists, and steals leader, ranks third amongst point guards only one ahead of active star Stephen Curry. KD, who wasn't the headline in either Game 1 (LeBron) or Game 2 (Curry), made sure to bring out the "assassin" in him all night and kill off Cleveland's hopes. Golden State won the game 110-102.
"Even when you do defend them well, you've still got guys like Steph and K.D. and Klay (Thompson) who can make unbelievable shots, even when you play the best of defense".
The Cavs had successfully faced down elimination three times this season but were unable to mount any threat of a rally in this one as the Warriors simply possessed too much firepower.
James left to a standing ovation after playing 41 of the game's first 44 minutes.
