The real estate broker handling the account lined up three options. The first one she showed the client’s manager was a farmhouse built in the 1800s. The door frames were deemed too low. “We would cut to the chase much better if I knew who it was,” said the broker, Renee Gallanti, recalling how she was not told at first who the client was for that house-hunting mission in 2016. “At first they tried to give very little information at all. And after we got to the first house and the ceilings were too low, we shifted gears.” The client, she soon learned, was Kevin Durant, the 7-foot N.B.A. All-Star. He was about to become a free agent for the first time — and would soon find himself at the heart of a courtship unlike any the N.B.A. had ever seen. Durant ultimately picked the Golden State Warriors, a seismic decision for the league, and is expected by many to win a second consecutive title with them next month.

“This is my f—ing house!” Stephen Curry cursed in celebration after ending his frustration. Stunned NBA fans worldwide read his lips, and fans at Oracle Arena saw the replay on the JumboTron. The devout Christian got caught up in the emotion of the moment but was apologetic after his Golden State Warriors’ 126-85 blowout win against the Houston Rockets in Game 3 of the Western Conference finals on Sunday. “If they ever thought I was perfect, then they got the wrong message to begin with,” said Curry, the favorite active athlete among kids 12-17, according to a 2017 ESPN Sports Poll. “I try to do the right things all the time. I have an awareness of who I represent on the court. In that moment, I fell a little short. I have to try to do better next time.”
Potential No. 1 pick in the 2018 Draft Luka Doncic won the EuroBasket playing under a Serbian coach: Igor Kokoskov. The newly appointed Phoenix Suns head coach isn’t the only Serbian that the Real Madrid star would play with. “Hard question… We all know who is Zeljko (Obradovic), and then there is Sasha Djordjevic. There are a lot of good coaches. And for Serbian players, I think (Bogdan) Bogdanovic. We are friends, he is a great player, I could learn a lot [from him],” Doncic said to Serbian website Telegraf.rs when asked if there are any Serbian coaches or players he’d choose to work with.
