Durant wants Thunder's time to be now

Kevin Durant knows all about how the
Oklahoma City Thunder have been tabbed as the NBA's team of the
future during a meteoric rise from league laughingstock to title
contender.
All through this season, he didn't want to think about the
prospect of success down the road. He wanted it now.
That's why Durant was saying Thursday that it's still
"shocking" that Oklahoma City's season came to an end a night
earlier in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals. Durant had
planned on still playing into mid-June, and now he's not sure what
he'll do with the next few weeks open.
Durant and the Thunder have gone from a miserable 3-29 start two
seasons ago to earning their status as a legitimate title contender
with their deep playoff run this year.
Yet there's still work to be done to get where they really want
to be.
