WATCH: Steph Curry & Kevin Durant are already doing absurd things on the basketball court

It may just have been a preseason game between the Golden State Warriors and Portland Trail Blazers on Friday night at Oracle Arena, but that didn’t seem to matter to Steph Curry and Kevin Durant.

It's still the Warriors as the team to catch out West

For Golden State, 73 is irrelevant. Only one number matters, and it's 16. The Warriors' chase of being the greatest team in NBA history last season fell short in a big way, when the team that posted the best regular-season record of all time blew a 3-1 lead in the finals and lost the title to Cleveland. So entering this season, any talk of setting another win record - even after...

Kevin Durant claims he wouldn’t have joined Warriors if they didn’t blow a 3-1 lead

Would Kevin Durant be a Golden State Warrior had the Warriors won the NBA title last season, completing a back-to-back championship reign? Not likely, Durant claims. It is not uncommon for pro athletes to sign deals with teams that give them a chance to win a ring. Durant did just that this past offseason by leaving Oklahoma City behind to join the Warriors. Already one of the NBA’s...

Durant responds on Twitter to fan asking about hate comments

Kevin Durant is slowly getting used to all the hate being lobbed at him for joining the Golden State Warriors. At least, that’s how it looked when Durant responded to a fan on Twitter asking him how he feels about being the villain for leaving Oklahoma City for the Bay Area. @Sheeme631 it's comical.
