Trevor Keels favorite NBA Player is Kevin Durant according to the NBA Draft Media Guide. – 2:23 PM

After four finals games of Steph Curry at his best … this was the kind of group effort that defined those pre-Kevin Durant teams that lived by that corny-but-true motto.
Strength and Numbers still kicking.

Today is RJ Barrett’s 22nd birthday.
Barrett is one of only five players in NBA history to rack up more than 3,000 points, 1,000 rebounds, 500 assists and 200 made three-pointers before turning 22.
The other four players are:
LeBron James,
Luka Doncic,
Kevin Durant,
Kobe Bryant – 1:09 PM

Wiggins has been incredible…
Fascinating to think back on how the Warriors found a way to sign-and-trade Kevin Durant and we’re able to flip KD into Wiggins – 11:39 PM

📅 On this day in 2017, the @Golden State Warriors Kevin Durant scored 39 points in a title-clinching win over the Cavaliers in Game 5 of the Finals.
Durant, who was named Finals MVP, is one of only four players in NBA history to average at least 35 PPG, 5 RPG, and 5 APG in a Finals. pic.twitter.com/D2PQmvmW6H1:01 PM

More on this storyline

Teams seeking a starting center may include the Toronto Raptors, Pistons, Trail Blazers and Hornets. Some sources believe the San Antonio Spurs (Jakob Poeltl), Chicago Bulls (Nikola Vucevic), Hawks (Clint Capela, John Collins), Pacers (Turner) or even Kings (Richaun Holmes, Harrison Barnes) could look to swap out existing players for one of the top available centers via trade. -via Bleacher Report / June 13, 2022

After hiring Kenny Atkinson, the Hornets may hold onto Gordon Hayward. Several sources believe the Pacers will keep Turner. Pencil in Chris Boucher to return to the Raptors. -via Bleacher Report / June 13, 2022

Trust for Public Land, with support from the Brooklyn Nets & New York Liberty Foundation, Kevin Durant Charity Foundation, and the NYC Department of Environmental Protection, celebrated the opening of the newly renovated schoolyard at the Juan Morel Campos Secondary School in Brooklyn. The schoolyard is part of Trust for Public Land’s New York City Playgrounds Program, which aims to transform asphalt playgrounds into vibrant city parks open to the community. -via NBA.com / June 13, 2022
