David and Ryan talk sports, especially will Kevin Durant be vilified the way LeBron James was after 'The Decision?' Durant always been less flashy. Announcing his decision in the Player's Tribune (where he's the deputy publisher) the complete opposite of LeBron. Thompson, Green, and Durant will be playing together all summer with Team USA at Olympics in Rio. Olympic teams in general are a great example of how superstars can come together successfully (and Durant no stranger to sharing the ball - played with Westbrook and Harden on same team).
