Even with the 2019 NBA playoffs underway and the Golden State Warriors looking to win their fourth championship in five years, there is still plenty of talk about free agency. Much of the speculation is regarding Kevin Durant's future, and rumors that he's headed to the New York Knicks won't go away.

As he looks to win his third title in three years with Golden State, Durant isn't a fan of so many people discussing what he might do this summer.

“Yo, just watch the game. Just focus on the game and stop nitpicking, because it is a beautiful game going on out there,” Durant told The Undefeated. “What can I do right now? I can’t sign a paper. I got to do the most important thing, and that is play. And that is what we should be focusing on.”

The Warriors defeated the Los Angeles Clippers 121-104 in Game 1 of their first-round playoff series. Durant scored 23 points before being ejected from the contest. Golden State is expected to cruise to the second round.

For many, another Warriors’ championship is a foregone conclusion. They are the odds-on favorites to win the NBA Finals, and there is a belief that Durant needs to leave Golden State in order to restore the league's competitive balance.

Despite the rumors that Durant has already made up his mind about going to the Big Apple, the back-to-back NBA Finals MVP maintains that no decision has been made.

“If I already made a decision, it would take away from the team, what we’re fighting for. Every play would be overshadowed by it,” Durant said. “It is not necessary for me to make a decision right now. It would be bad to do that. It would take the focus off of what is important. I would never want to put my teammates in a messed-up position. I want to forget about it.

“But it is still putting everybody in messed-up positions where everybody wants to know all the time, everybody is speculating and everybody is trying to get in my head and what I think about it.”

Durant and the Warriors will host the Clippers in Game 2 Monday night.
