Regardless of whether Golden State wins the 2017 NBA title, Kevin Durant has no regrets about his decision to sign with the Warriors last summer, and he plans to be back on the team next season.

Rene Robert Authentic Jersey I made the 100 percent correct decision, win or lose, Durant told The Undefeated on Sunday, when the Warriors held a 3-0 lead over the Spurs in the Western Conference finals. I feel like this is the place I was supposed to be. I appreciate everything I’ve done before this. But I’m here now, and I feel like it’s a great spot for me to be.
Four bookmakers had the Warriors favored, from as high as minus-8 at the MGM to minus-3 at the Wynn in a potential matchup. Much like the LeBron-MJ debate, a matchup between the Warriors and the 1995-96 champions features different styles of play: The Warriors with a run-and-gun mentality vs. defensive-minded Bulls squad with a methodical offense.
Interesting hypothetical from @Westgate_LV: 2016-17 @warriors would be 6.5-point favorites against MJ-led 1995-96 Bulls on a neutral court.
There are also different rules between the two eras, which play into the Warriors’ favor, according to Matthew Holt at CG Analytics.
The biggest factor is what rules is game being played under, Holt told ESPN. Being able to hand check would make the Bulls favorite and their roster was built for that. In the no-hand check era the Warriors’ current roster is much better suited and would have some serious speed and shooter advantages at several key positions.
