Has Durant given any particular reason for leaving OKC and choosing GSW? I don't think he was buddy-buddy with anyone on that team (especially with the postgame conferences he gave in the playoffs).

it's a 1year contract with a player option in 2nd season... if things go awry and end up like 2011 heat KD can become free agent again and ghost. it's 99% probable that's what he'll do anyway to make the new mega super duper Maximus contract

this move makes both gsw and kd look bad. no fortitude. kd should've tried one more time at least to get it done with okc. oladipo was a good fit for the roster they had. and the warriors lacking confidence in their own players to go hard after kd. weak sauce

My Next Chapter


This has been by far the most challenging few weeks in my professional life. I understood cognitively that I was facing a crossroads in my evolution as a player and as a man, and that it came with exceptionally difficult choices. What I didn’t truly understand, however, was the range of emotions I would feel during this process.

The primary mandate I had for myself in making this decision was to have it based on the potential for my growth as a player — as that has always steered me in the right direction. But I am also at a point in my life where it is of equal importance to find an opportunity that encourages my evolution as a man: moving out of my comfort zone to a new city and community which offers the greatest potential for my contribution and personal growth. With this in mind, I have decided that I am going to join the Golden State Warriors.

I’m from Washington, D.C. originally, but Oklahoma City truly raised me. It taught me so much about family as well as what it means to be a man. There are no words to express what the organization and the community mean to me, and what they will represent in my life and in my heart forever. The memories and friendships are something that go far beyond the game. Those invaluable relationships are what made this deliberation so challenging.

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.

I will miss Oklahoma City, and the role I have had in building this remarkable team. I will forever cherish the relationships within the organization — the friends and teammates that I went to war with on the court for nine years, and all the fans and people of the community. They have always had my back unconditionally, and I cannot be more grateful for what they have meant to my family and to me.

lol

 

idfnl said it best: max for barnes or max for KD. warriors weren't making moves just to make em. they had to make choices with contracts up and guys getting older. the roster was going to change anyways.

The problem I had with his announcement in The Players Tribune is that he didn't say anything. It reads like a corporate memo.

Did you really expect him to say Oklahoma sucks? He was there for almost 10 years. Oklahoma should feel grateful they even got an NBA team.

well, it's more like kd for barnes/bogut/ezeli. they have to unload the other 2 guys to get kd. and now everyone else goes down in the pecking order. klay becomes the 3rd option. draymond won't be getting the touches he prefers. not so easy being the 3rd and 4th option. just ask love and barnes.
post #26697 of 27236

bogut? great player but limited minutes, injury prone, and his playing days may be over in any case. i don't think that's as big a decision as it's being made out to be. 

 

ezeli tho...

post #26698 of 27236

So GSW no longer has a C? Maybe Kendrick Perkins will crawl back from where ever he's been for a min deal...

post #26699 of 27236

You know what would make this interesting? If Wade signed with CLE.
