Warriors and the Kevin Durant Hypothetical

Last summer, I wrote a piece called “The Third Way” talking about how the Warriors could add multiple max players. The past eleven months have changed the Golden State future in many ways (nearly all of them positive) so it felt like high time to go through a different scenario with this new landscape. -== Klay Thompson’s Top 5 Dunks Of His Career ==-   My friend Andy Liu at Golden State of Mind likes ...
