Kevin Durant Stares Down Hecklers Who Said His Alma Mater Was 'Butt'

LeBron James Angry Cavs

Cavaliers fans heckled Kevin Durant after the Golden State Warriors took the lead National Basketball Association finals on Wednesday night, outside the team hotel, per TMZ.

The leaguewide belief, of course, is that chasing championships is James's priority, which necessitates relocating to a team far better equipped to do so than the Cavaliers.

According to ESPN, one of Durant's options now would be to sign a four-year, max contract worth around $158 million.

In the past months, the Los Angeles Lakers, Houston Rockets, and the Philadelphia 76ers have emerged as potential landing spots for James, if he considers parting ways with his hometown team. Most of those teams can give James a strong pitch by revealing their plan to dethrone the Warriors. "The Lakers feel like they are a year away; LeBron plus Paul George would not be enough to propel them past the Warriors". LeBron was asked if he thought Durant was going to be a problem when he first went up against him in the Finals back in 2012.

Belmont Stakes 2018: The Triple Crown near-misses
After Seattle Slew (1977) and Affirmed (1978) won it, the Triple Crown started to look impossible - until American Pharoah (2015). The favorite has won the Belmont - the Triple Crown's longest leg at 1½ miles - only four times in the past 25 years.

What happened in the locker room after the worst mental lapse in NBA Finals history was purely speculation until after Golden State swept them out of the Finals. James could tell Durant the only way to silence his haters is to defeat the Warriors.

Cleveland fans weren't too happy Wednesday night after losing Game 3 of the National Basketball Association finals against Golden State.

But the big man, who is yet to play a single game this season, said it was all in the good nature of competition.

Cavaliers fans waited outside the Warriors' team hotel after the loss apparently to heckle the players.
