( darya ) kevin durant is going to become a free agent this summer but don't worry: again they're not unraveling, i'ts all part of the plan.. k-d declines his player option and then he can restructure a new deal with warriors, the deal he deserves.. cuz remember last offseason, he inked a discounted two-year, $51 million deal: $10 million less than what he could have earned on a max salary. that allowed the team to retain iguodala and livingston. so it should all pay off soon.. well first with the championship and then with the new contract.

are the warriors unraveling or was last night's horrendous performance all part of the plan??? golden state got blown out last night by the utah jazz 119-79. it was ugly, it was painful.. it was like they all forgot are the warriors unraveling or was last night's horrendous performance all part of the plan??? golden state got blown out last night by the utah jazz 119-79. it was ugly, it was painful.. it was like they all forgot how to play basketball.. or was it brilliant? because now the warriors are assured not to
9:47 am
see the jazz or the thunder in the first round of the playoffs.. and with steph curry out for the first round and how they've played against those two teams in the regular season.. that might be a good plan. kevin durant is going to become a free agent this summer but don't worry: again they're not unraveling, i'ts all part of the plan.. k-d declines his player option and then he can restructure a new deal with warriors, the deal he deserves.. cuz remember last offseason, he inked a discounted two-year, $51 million deal: $10 million less than what he could have earned on a max salary. that allowed the team to retain iguodala and livingston. so it should all pay off soon.. well first with the championship and then with the new contract. if you like to follow the warriors extended family and baseball: klay thompson's brother trayce made his debut with the oakland a's last night at dodger stadium, and he might be in the starting lineup for today's game against his former roommate, alex wood.
9:48 am
they lived together in 2016 when they were both injured so they spent a ton of time together.." and apparently wood makes a better roommate than his own splashbrother.. cuz trayce says klay is one of the messiest people he's ever known and alex cooks. they love nicknames in baseball and i love 'em too.. i think they should just call andrew mcutchen "mc-cluchen" no??? how about mc-lovin.. cuz san francisco giants fans are lovin him! clutch delivers another walk-off win for giants. he hit a bases-loaded single for his second walk-off of this homestand, lifting the giants over the diamondbacks 5-4. he's probably told his cavs teammate tristian thompson to do the same.. because the internet is blowing up over thompson cheating on khloe kardashian.
9:49 am
the other woman is splashed all over the daily mail.. tmz.. and everywhere else.. they were spotted together last weekend in ny.. and a sex tape allegedly featuring tristian was posted and quickly deleted from instagram by a woman who claims to have slept with him. all of this while khloe is about to give birth to their baby any day now.. khloe is also going to be juggling a new job.. she's producing a true crime show.. called twisted sisters.. about sisters who kill. as she said it's tales about the bonds that sisters possess and how they can go so terribly wrong," we already know everything under the sun about the kardashian sisters so time to move on.. the kardashians are the queens of social media.. the king is on the throne right now on capitol hill.. facebook founder mark zuckerburg is testifying before congress for a second day.. talking about data breaches and privacy.. this is a live shot of him in the hot seat.. or the booster seat as it were.. no privacy

right?? as soon as the media spotted his cushion.. it was everywhere. he's 5 foot 7.. give him a break! from a short woman.. i'm always on a box.. you want to be commanding.. or not have the desk up to your chin. hearing watchers say he did well yesterday...5 hours of grilling and didn't break in to a richard nixon sweat answering questions yesterday like he did when he was in the spotlight at a digital conference in 2010... had to take off his hoodie.. wore a suit this time. there's only one word for the all new
