But I actually think your point is (indirectly) exactly what I’m saying. There’s no question the Warriors wouldn’t be better with Durant starting and playing alongside Curry, Thompson, and Green. The question is if the Warriors wouldn’t be better in the long run with resting each of those players in intervals.

Said another way: of course all them would play in the Finals. And undoubtedly the Western Conference Finals as well. Because once you’re there, what’s the point of resting? The key is getting to those games with enough rest and health.
