Kevin Durant leads Golden State in scoring with an average of 28.9 points per game, but NBA rumors are rife about his overall contribution to the team’s efficacy. Were the Warriors a better team without him, and with Stephen Curry leading the way?
The Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant – led Warriors have fallen to teams they would have breezed through based on last season’s performance. And although Stephen Curry has rebounded, breaking the league’s record for most treys made in a game, the underlying question still persists.
Is a Warriors trade inevitable? How will they manage to keep their superstars Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant without breaching the cap space?
Stephen Curry will be a free agent next summer, and we all know how much he has done, and how much he is worth. Meanwhile, Kevin Durant will have a player option, and what if he opts for the free agency? Is a Warriors trade likely, and who are they likely to let go of?
NBA Rumors are even suspect about whether Golden State’s management is happy with how their “super-team” is turning out. It surely isn’t the new Warriors NBA fans have expected.
Moreover, there could be factions building within the team too, with how Kevin Durant has taken over a team that was already considered a finished product from last season. NBA rumors abound.
Stephen Curry remains the team’s favorite player after his epic performance versus the Pelicans. Would a Warriors trade more likely go for Kevin Durant, a move considered a return to the old, tested Warriors?
It seems for now Stephen Curry ‘s 3-pt performance has silenced theories surrounding him. Showing resilience, leadership, and grit, he’s come back from a Lakers loss to remind everyone who the man really is.
“I looked up and it was an NBA record, and I’m like, ‘Wow.’ I didn’t realize what was going on, it happened so quick. He got us going when we were struggling shooting the ball and scoring points. He kind of broke their backs with some of the shots he was hitting.” Kevin Durant said.
“Coach called the plays for him. We set the screens for him. And he finished the shots. It was a great night.”
