Kevin Durant was still digesting Oklahoma City's Western Conference finals defeat when the simmering subject of his free agent future reached full boiling point. "I'm just embracing my team-mates and just reflecting on the season," Durant said Monday night after the Golden State Warriors rallied to eliminate the Thunder -- who had led the best-of-seven series three games to one. Durant, the 27-year-old former NBA Most Valuable Player, will be the most coveted prize of the free agency period that starts on July 1.
LeBron James and the Cavaliers rested up and waited through a tumultuous Western Conference finals before finding themselves right back where they were last year, going against the Warriors for the NBA title. James, on a stated mission to bring to Cleveland the city's first major professional sports team title in 52 years, and the Cavs hit the road to open the best-of-seven against sharpshooter Stephen Curry and Golden State at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California, on Thursday.
