In the case of Durant, no matter what you’re trying to accomplish, you should give it your best shot. Sometimes, you know your best shot isn’t good enough.

The same goes for NBA front offices. It holds doubly true when a generational offensive player hits the open market. In that event, an NBA front office should do their best to acquire that player – whether they have a real chance at doing so or not.
