The Golden State Warriors are living life these days. After tearing it up at Steph Curry's incredibly lit 30th birthday party, Golden State canceled practice.

As The Ringer's Bill Simmons noted, the Warriors don't seem too hell-bent on chasing Houston's claim on the No. 1 seed in the West.
The Warriors are doing everything short of actually telling Houston, “Enjoy the 1-seed, we know we can win a Game 7 in your house.” https://t.co/gpbD5rpP57— Bill Simmons (@BillSimmons) March 13, 2018
The Warriors have played on cruise control this season and still hold the No. 2 seed in the highly competitive West. They're just doing what they want right now.
Kevin Durant has never been shy to speak his mind, as we've learned from his repeated appearances on Simmons' podcast and his excellent YouTube channel, but Durant was especially bold Monday night. He posted an Instagram story calling out his critics.
"Stop sliding in my DMs telling me how to hoop," Durant posted. "You’re trash, have a nice day."
