The Golden State Warriors are looking for a three-peat this season and are the odds on favorite to succeed in their quest to become the first team to win three straight NBA titles since the Lakers in the early-2000s.

The Warriors had a plan in place to keep their core four together for the foreseeable future, albeit at a price tag of well over $1 billion. If they manage to succeed in doing so, theya€™ll be the favorites toA actuallyA achieve the a€œnot four, not five, not six, not sevena€ titles LeBron James once claimed was the goal with the Miami Heat. However, much like how that Heat run ended prematurely given what those three superstars seemed capable of, the Warriors run could meet a similar fate at the end of this season.

For some time, it was Klay Thompson that many thought could be the one to jump ship and try to find a team that would let him be the top star. That doesna€™t seem to be the case as Thompson has been very clear about his intentions to stay in Golden State and his happiness with his situation as a secondary superstar. Now, it appears the issue inA keeping this group together will be Kevin Durant,A the last addition to their quartet of All-Stars who may also be the first to leave.

Durant will be a free agent once again in 2019 after he inked a one-year deal this offseason with the Warriors when some expected him to cash in on a much larger, long-term deal. Hea€™s kept his options open and there are those in the Bay that feel the writing is on the wall for his departure next summer.
