Kevin Durant Joins Golden State To Possibly Make The Greatest Team Ever In NBA History
“It really pains me to know that I will disappoint so many people with this choice, but I believe I am doing what I feel is the right thing at this point in my life and my playing career,” said Kevin Durant according to The Player’s Tribune.
Durant made his decision on The Player’s Tribune for the whole world to see. He joins the Golden State Warriors, a team already searching for another championship after losing in the NBA Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers, and probably put themselves on paper as the greatest team ever made.
The NBA community and those on social media were shocked to see Durant choosing Golden State over Oklahoma City. Early on, reporters and analysts see him going back for one more year, challenging the Warriors for a ticket to the NBA finals. Now, it looks like the Warriors are the evil empire snatching Durant and making them a far better team than before.
This team now has a couple of things that most would strive to have: multiple MVPS and all-stars at the highest level. No one can argue the level of offensive firepower they can display on the court against any team, including the Cavaliers.
The Western Conference suddenly becomes far more weaker than before. It leaves questions to who can challenge them, which realistically comes down to either the San Antonio Spurs or Los Angeles Clippers. The Warriors now go from the death lineup to the apocalypse lineup, small ball at the highest level.
But the 2016-17 NBA season will get more interesting with this team and others competing for a championship. However, can this team win more than 73 games?
