The scenario is fascinating to me. So many questions / angles:
Did he rush to come back himself? Did he feel pressure from the Warriors and teammates to do so, even if not overt? Is the Warriors organization to blame, or does he share some or all of it? Will the league implement new rules or procedures to protect players from being pressured back early? Is that even possible? Could Durant sue the Warriors? What's going to happen with his career now? Does he exercise his option for one more year and rehab on the Warriors' nickel, or does he accept an offer from the Knicks or Clippers? Would any team really offer him a max contract? How long will it take him to recover when others have taken 10-12 months? Can the Warriors win Game 6 after losing 3 of 4 to the Raptors without him, including both games on their home floor? Do the Warriors re-focus and dedicate Game 6 to him? Would it matter if they did? Can they possibly shoot as lights out a 2nd, much less 3rd time? Aren't the Warriors deflated after losing KD? Where are the Raptors' heads about now? What's the proper etiquette for fans in that situation? Would I cheer if the best player on an opposing team went down, or would my first reaction be the empathetic one? Do the chants of "KD" in the arena make up for the apparent cheering of a serious injury?
Just can't get enough.
Cougars, SF Giants, 49ers, Jazz, Padres. In that order. Also on the Warriors bandwagon.
