Dammit. Goddammit. Kevin Durant didn't just laugh in each and every one of our faces. He laughed in the faces of the 29 other teams in the league that have turned the NBA offseason into pure chaos in a desperate effort to catch up to Golden State. The worst part? Everyone has to sit back and take it because he was absolutely right in doing so.
An unstoppable (regular season) offense just added a point guard so good that he's considered the almighty of assist men in exchange for nothing more than some spare parts, annnnd it barely got the Warriors to lift their proverbial head from their proverbial pillow. Of course KD is sleeping on the idea of getting run out of the building by a team that loves the three ball and has - quite possibly - the two best facilitators in the sport. You would too if your lineup was the literal personification of "anything you can do, I can do better". Kevin Durant probably looks at every transaction that has taken place since he lifted that all-too-elusive Larry O'Brien Trophy as if it were part of a comedy routine. He's just sitting back as a spectator as the hysterics unfolding around him are all at his leisure. As insufferably cocky as it is scoff at the idea of defending two players as great as Chris Paul and James Harden, it's a level of conceit that's well deserved.
If Daryl Morey miraculously manages to finagle Paul George out Indiana then maybe...maybe...Kevin Durant won't be in absolute stitches at the mere thought of having legitimate competition. Until then, to the victors go the spoils, and there's nothing more spoiled than going out of your way to openly mock everyone that's less fortunate than you.
