Make The Finals... Or I'm Gone

Kevin Durant's future in OKC has been in question for some time now. Durant is in his final year of a 5-year extention he signed back in 2010, and reports are now surfacing that he may choose to flee Oklahoma City after the season. New Orleans Pelicans Broadcaster, Joel Meyers told Sirius XM NBA Radio on Monday that it may be Finals or bust for Durant:

“I made some calls over the weekend, Vinny,” Meyers said,  “...I’m told if they don’t at least get to the NBA Finals, Durant’s gone. Simple as that. And to the point where he may want his own team.”

The last statement goes against recent reports that the Oakland Warriors would be Durant's top destination if he leaves OKC.

Meyers went on to say:

“So everybody’s talking about Golden State,” - “There may be other teams coming into the equation for Kevin Durant. He’s the principle. He’s going to be the guy. So from what I’ve been told, it may not be Golden State after all.”

OKC faces a tough road through the Western Conference playoffs, with the Spurs and Warriors looking to be a level above everyone else. They are currently the 3-seed in the west and 10 games behind the number 2 Spurs.
