The NBA is the world’s biggest sport, but it’s also one of the most unpredictable.
There are always rumors about players, teams and teams not wanting to make the playoffs, and there are often players and teams in their position that are more likely to stay in the race than their rivals.
The first of those scenarios came into play last year when LeBron James and the Cavaliers were the most likely to win the NBA championship.
That’s why the team has already been linked to the Cleveland Cavaliers for a potential deal for Kevin Durant, who could end up with a max deal.
However, that scenario could change.
James is not interested in a max contract and instead wants to see if the Warriors are willing to offer him a max. It’s also possible that James could leave the Cavaliers for another team.
The Warriors are looking for another marquee name to fill out their roster and have shown interest in Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder.
But the Warriors also have a lot of young players who could have a breakout season in 2017-18.
For starters, there is James, a four-time NBA champion who is currently leading the league in MVP voting.
James’ name is tied to the Warriors because they play in the same city as Golden State.
In the past, the Cavaliers have won two titles in the Bay Area.
However, the team is looking to rebuild and has been trying to sell James to a new team.
James has already told the team he is interested in playing for the Warriors.
Warriors owner Joe Lacob told ESPN last week that James was a potential landing spot for the franchise.
If the Warriors decide to sign Durant, he would become the fourth player in NBA history to earn three MVP awards in a single season.
That would give James the fourth-most MVPs in the league behind Shaquille O’Neal, LeBron James (seven) and Kevin Durant (six).
James is one of two NBA players to win three MVPs, joining Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Larry Bird.
Durant’s MVP-clinching performance in Game 7 of the 2015 NBA Finals is the most significant for James.
“I don’t think there’s a player in the history of the game that has been as clutch as Kevin Durant,” Warriors guard Klay Thompson told ESPN’s Kevin Pelton.
“It’s a tremendous accomplishment, a tremendous achievement in the NBA.
He is an amazing talent.”
Durant is also the most dominant player in basketball history, and is the first player in history to have three straight 50-plus point games.
Durant is averaging 37.8 points per game this season, but he also has 12.5 assists and 5.7 rebounds per game.
Durant also leads the NBA in three-point percentage (.549), free throws made per game (22.1) and free throw percentage (51.5).
“I know a lot people think that LeBron James is the best player in this league, but if he wasn’t the best, I think he would be,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr told ESPN.
“If I was LeBron, I would be very upset about it.”
James, who is also a four time MVP, is coming off a season in which he averaged 28.2 points, 11.5 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game while shooting 52.5 percent from the field and 33.5 from three.
He also made four All-Star teams.
James will turn 32 in October and is averaging 28.5 points, 7.3 rebounds and 3.8 assists per contest this season.
He’s also the only player in league history to average at least 26 points, 10 rebounds and 7 assists per outing.
Durant, meanwhile, is averaging 31.7 points, 9.4 rebounds and 5-7.5 steals per game, which ranks him eighth in the all-time scoring list behind Kareem and Shaquilles.
James, however, has made his mark on the game in his rookie season, when he won Rookie of the Year.
He has averaged 29.5 minutes per game in 2017.
