Warriors GM Bob Myers Awkwardly Zings Kevin Durant Over Contract At Parade

The Golden State Warriors won the 2018 NBA Finals in a clean sweep, eliminating the Cleveland Cavaliers and sending them into a summer of uncertainty with LeBron James' free agency coming up.

The Warriors' Draymond Green and Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson exchanged beef throughout the NBA Finals. Still, Durant made it clear he has no designs on leaving Golden State.

During the parade, stars like Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, and Klay Thompson had fun moments with the crowd while guys like Nick Young and Jordan Bell both went shirtless and celebrated with alcohol.

"You told (Stephen Curry) he could have whatever he wanted previous year", Fitzgerald said to Myers.

Early numbers analysis from KQED transportation reporter Dan Brekke: "Even if today's ridership tracks 5 percent below previous year, it would still make BART's Top 10 (right around No. 7, I think)". "I just want him to sign a deal".

As expected, Durant declined his player option for next season in April, which makes him an unrestricted free agent.

"[The Durant comments were] just for the media, he can't have anything he wants", Myers said.

"And there ended the Warriors' cohesion", Fitzgerald responded.

The entire exchange was just weird, especially for what should just be a fun celebration on another very successful Warriors season.

"We never really imagined that we would be having one parade, let alone two and now three", Curry said during a short live interview before the parade started. With mic in hand, he casually roasted Durant, saying his free agency situation is different from that of Steph Curry past year.
