Report: Durant stopped talking to Warriors teammates during season

Report: Durant stopped talking to Warriors teammates during season The reported saga of Kevin Durant's departure from the Golden State Warriors keeps on getting stranger and stranger. On Tuesday, Yahoo Sports published the first interview with Kevin Durant since he left the Warriors for the Brooklyn Nets in free agency. In the article, Yahoo's Chris B. Haynes wrote that Durant decided to keep "his mouth shut and focus on his craft" at some point during the 2018-19 season after chatter regarding his impending free agency reached a deafening level. "I just dove deeper into the game," Durant told Haynes.

"I'll always remember the three years we had. We'll probably be back here down the road celebrating those like they did the '74-75 team," Curry said, nodding in the direction of the Warriors' recent championship banners. "It'll be cool when that happens."

For now, Curry is embracing new beginnings as the oldest player on a Golden State roster that will look far different come training camp next month — and that also was the theme he shared with girls attending his Warriors camp this week in one of his bittersweet final trips to the downtown Oakland practice facility before a move to San Francisco and the new Chase Center. Durant, recovering from surgery to repair a ruptured right Achilles tendon, has departed to join the Brooklyn Nets.

"We won two championships and I think we both got better throughout the process as basketball players and as people," Curry said. "With the demand every single night to be great and just all that that comes with, in terms of the media attention, the scrutiny, the criticism, the praise even, it's a lot to handle. And I think me and him especially on that level could connect. Him going to Brooklyn, you're just trying to make sure he's happy and going to a place where he feels like he needs to be. At the end of the day, you've got to be happy about that for him."

Steve Kerr shares funny story of how he learned Kevin Durant chose Nets

Steve Kerr shares funny story of how he learned Kevin Durant chose Nets Steve Kerr learned of some pretty disappointing news in about the best way possible. Kerr was on a beach in Hawaii trying to relax and enjoy some personal time on June 30 when free agency began in the NBA. According to a story by ESPN’s Jackie MacMullan, Kerr had even left his cell phone behind in his room so that he could read his book peacefully. Despite Kerr’s efforts to avoid the free agency scene, he learned Kevin Durant had chosen to sign with the Brooklyn Nets from a stranger nearby on the beach, who shared the surprising news with a friend by exclaiming it loudly enough for Kerr to hear it.

Also gone are veterans Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston, guard Quinn Cook and big man DeMarcus Cousins. Meanwhile, the Warriors have added a handful of new faces like D'Angelo Russell, Willie Cauley-Stein and Glenn Robinson III. Draymond Green got a new four-year deal earlier this month worth close to $100 million. Kevon Looney re-signed, too.

As Klay Thompson works back this season from surgery for a torn ACL in his left knee that he injured in the deciding Game 6 loss of the finals to the Toronto Raptors, Curry's backcourt mate will be Russell.

At 31, Curry doesn't mind that he will be the quote-unquote old guy entering his 11th NBA season. A two-time NBA MVP, he has reached five straight NBA Finals.

"Has it sunk in? No. Have people been reminding me? Yes, any time they bring up our team looking forward," he said with a smile. "It's cool though, hopefully I'm wise beyond my years but still youthful in what I can do on the floor. It's just a change in dynamic all the way around. We're excited about the opportunities, the challenges for the whole roster, because we've got a lot of guys that have the opportunity to really prove themselves and make a difference in our team. Obviously our core, 'til Klay gets back, we know how to win and we know how to play. We're just going to do it a little differently."

Curry is unconcerned at this stage about outside expectations regarding how good this group might be and speculation that these Warriors may not be a championship contender.

"I know the reality of the situation in terms of we lost a guy like Kevin Durant, who's an all-time great basketball player," Curry said. "We lost two veteran high-IQ guys in Shaun and Andre that really were like the cogs in the wheel that kept us going and you could rely on them every single game. So, the look is different but nobody really has a sustained run like we did where every year you're expected to be the greatest. It's just a matter of now we have to, I wouldn't even say prove people wrong, but we have to kind of galvanize the new roster and do the exact same thing."

Wardell Stephen "Steph" Curry II (/ˈstɛfən/ STEF-ən; born March 14, 1988) is an American professional basketball player for the Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball Association (NBA).

Stephen Curry waited all of 11 seconds before he launched his first 3-pointer of the playoffs. It found its way home. A few minutes later, with the defense giving him some room, he launched from 32 feet, and again connected. “He was Steph,” Coach Steve Kerr said at his postgame news conference.

As he told the female campers all sporting his No. 30 jersey, first things first.

Curry took a quick poll of how many had started school again. Dozens of hands shot into the air.

"Great to see you all again! You all having a great day, too?"

Collective: "Yeah!"

"New beginnings, right? We're going to take care of our school work this year?" Curry asked. "We're going to be very dedicated and hard-working in the classroom as we are on the basketball court? That's very important to be well-rounded people, right? Athletes and academics."

Will Klay Thompson’s legacy forever be tied to Steph Curry’s?.
Klay Thompson will go down as one of the best shooting guards to ever play the game. "Game 6 Klay" is a player who comes to ball. When the Warriors were down 3-2 during the 2016 Western Conference Finals against the Oklahoma City Thunder, they needed another win to force Game 7. Thompson scored a game-high 41 points and made 11 3-pointers, the most threes ever made in a playoff game. #NeverForget Klay Thompson's game 6 vs. OKC.
