"When it happened, I just kind of sunk", Wanda said, recalling the moment the Warriors forward went down in the second quarter.

The downtown arena will open its doors for a viewing party for game six of the NBA Finals between the Raptors and the Golden State Warriors. "That's really if (he) couldn't find any other team to commit to (him) on a contract". There has now been speculation that he could stick with the contract and make $31 million next season while sitting out most - if not all - of the year, but ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski called that a "last resort" on Wednesday. Because even if he opts-out of the contract and even if he would get a short deal with another team, a two-year deal, that starts at $38 million.

The marksman has been wholeheartedly committed to returning for the Warriors, but it's been known that he does not plan to give the team a hometown discount this time around, going into a vital financial stretch of his National Basketball Association career.

The LA Clippers are likely one of those teams still interested in Durant, and they could certainly still pay him a max or near-max salary this summer. Hamzah Moin has raised thousands of dollars through a fundraising campaign to prove to Durant that Toronto Raptors fans truly feel bad about his injury. He'd just get paid more next season.

Tiger Woods knows as much as any athlete about the loneliness, frustration and challenges of battling back from injury.

He might want to rehab for a year, see where he's at physically and mentally and then come to a conclusion regarding a long-term contract.

But opting in would still be a shocker.
