Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant after game seven.

Andrew Bogut admits Kevin Durant talk has breached the Golden State locker room

Published 1 Comments

The Golden State Warriors are, without a doubt, the best roster in the NBA. Last year they won the franchise's first title in 40 years. This season they won a record 73 games in the regular season and find themselves 1-0 up over the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Finals.

However, there are rumours that their all-conquering team could potentially be split up. Even with the success they are currently enjoying, there is a distinct possibility that the lure of Kevin Durant in free agency will prove too good to turn down.

Durant - the 2014 Most Valuable Player - was part of the Oklahoma City Thunder team that gave the Warriors an incredible scare in the Western Conference Finals before ultimately surrendering a 3-1 advantage.

Becoming an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his career, Durant will have every franchise in the league looking on with interest and it seems his star power has not been overlooked by the Warriors' front office.

Even if they do make it back-to-back titles, the current team could be gutted to make room for the forward, and Andrew Bogut admitted players on the roster have been asking questions.

He said: "Guys have definitely asked questions. We're not immune to it. We've seen it. We've seen the rumours, heard the rumours, all that kind of stuff. Different guys at different times have been scratching their head and thinking, 'Why?'"

'Why?' Is a good question. Splitting up a roster with this much talent is a risk, but the prospects of adding Durant to a team with Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green, could bring a huge reward.
