Kevin Durant shocked the NBA when he joined the Warriors four years ago today
Kevin Durant announced that he would leave the Oklahoma City Thunder to sign with the Golden State Warriors exactly four years ago.
The move has been widely criticized because Durant previously said he wanted to stay on thunder. The Warriors had had a 73-9 season and eliminated Durant’s Thunder in seven games in the Western Conference Final.
As expected, in the first two seasons of Durant, the Warriors won championships with his new team in succession after repeatedly running out of Oklahoma City. Last season, Golden State missed a third consecutive title after tearing Achilles and Klay Thompson out of ACL.
Durant averaged 25.8 points, 7.1 rebounds and 5.4 assists per game in his three seasons with the Warriors. In the postseason he scored an average of 29.6 points, 7.1 rebounds and 4.5 per game while playing for Golden State. He was appointed Finals MVP in 2017 and 2018.
Durant rejoined a new team in the free agency this off-season and signed with the Brooklyn Nets. He still has to make his team debut due to his Achilles injury, but is expected to be ready to play early next season.
