Warriors win title, Kevin Durant is a bad beer drinker
The Golden State Warriors are NBA champs, and it all started with one text. Seriously if you read one thing today, make it Lee Jenkins’s profile of Kevin Durant. It’s tremendous. Other items of note: Tristan Thompson and David West’s scuffle turned oddly intimate ... What did Durant whisper to Steph Curry after the game? ... NBA players took to Twitter to congratulate KD ... The Warriors spilled almost $200,000 in champagne during their postgame celebration. Durant fake chugged beer and failed at the “Stone Cold” Steve Austin beer toast ... Golden State is a heavy favorite to repeat and win the 2018 NBA title.
