The best thing that happened to me last year was us losing The Finals, you know, and me playing the way I played, it was the best thing to ever happen to me in my career because basically I got back to the basics. It humbled me.

Since we love stupid narrative, why doesn’t someone ask why Durant can’t start games the way he finishes them.
