Ranking the 5 teams most likely to win the 2019 NBA Finals

The Warriors won titles in 2015, 2017 and 2018 - with each year being noted on the rings on Green's shirt - while the Cavaliers famously came back from a 3-1 deficit to win the title in 2016.

It's fair to say that even though former teammates Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook have been "broken up" for a while now, there's no love lost between the pair. Look at how overmatched the Cavaliers looked against the Warriors the last two years, or how the possible dynasty in Miami died on the vine in 2014 because of a lack of solid role players to surround LeBron James, Chris Bosh, and Dwayne Wade. "This place gives me that", Durant said.

Monday, Warriors general manager Bob Myers-the man who assembled this absurd roster-said the team will do whatever it takes to bring back K.D. He said the back-to-back Finals MVP could have "whatever he wants".

"Especially if I continue to approach the game the right way every day like I've been doing, hell yeah".

"Whatever he wants. There's no negotiation", said Myers.

America's Got Talent victor Neal Boyd found dead
Neal Boyd , the victor of the third season of " America's Got Talent ", died on Sunday at about 6 p.m., TMZ reports . Last year, he and his mother were reportedly badly injured in a vehicle accident after he blacked out while driving.

"Because it's not about [the record]", Durant said. I want him to be happy and want him to know we want him as long as he wants to be here.

We're going to guess Myers regretted the words the second they fell out of his mouth. "This is the best place for me to just play ball, work on my game, play ball, and not care about [expletive] that normal National Basketball Association superstars are supposed to care about".

Durant is most likely to sign a one-plus-one contract again this offseason and then sign a five-year contract in 2019 at 35 percent of the max. So it's hard for me to go out there and play for that type of stuff because it changes through so many people.

"I pride myself on standing out wherever I am", Durant added. I pride myself on working hard wherever I go.

Yes, it's been reported - and aggregated - that the Warriors are interested in acquiring Anthony Davis, but that's in the same way that I'm interested in acquiring a Mercedes AMG S-63 - I'd certainly like to have it, but I'm neither capable or willing to pay what it costs.
