When the Golden State Warriors rocked the landscape of the NBA by signing Kevin Durant last summer, NBA commissioner Adam Silver was one of the first to say he did not think the move was good for the league. It didnt take long for him to change his mind.

Before Game 4 of the NBA Finals, Silver told Adam Gilgore of the Washington Post that the league should focus on how to build more championship-caliber teams " not break apart the Warriors.

Rather than focusing on the top of the league, we should be focusing on the rest of the league, Silver said. Rather than talking about how to break up or knock down a championship-caliber team, my focus should be on how we do a better job developing more great players in this league.

Silver acknowledged that the Warriors put themselves over the top by signing an All-Star free agent, but he noted how Golden State was able to draft and develop players to build a contender before that.

All the focus seems to be on, Theyre too good as opposed to, What is it we should be doing to create more great teams in this league? Thats what my response is.
