Kevin Durant is going to be a Warrior! Let that soak in for a second. It’s taken me about half an hour now and I still don’t believe it.
This move completely changes the landscape of the NBA. You know that team that just won an NBA record 73 games last year and lost in game 7 of the NBA finals. Yeah, they just added one of the most versatile and dominant offensive players in NBA history.
What does this mean?
Are 80 wins in the bag for the Warriors next season? I don’t think so, but I think they are now the biggest favorites in NBA history.
I want to make a bold prediction however. KD is signing a 2 year deal with an opt out clause after one year. What if his plan is to go to GS and blow up the team that beat him in the finals and then when things look a little more bleak in the Bay, opt of the contract and re-up with the Thunder next year.
Diabolical. Here’s hoping this is the case. I would love to hear KD answering questions next year about the demise of his relations in Golden State. That would be awesome.
Maybe I still need some time to grasp the situation. This news is still very fresh and I can’t seem to figure out what it means for the NBA yet.
