NBA’s Free Agency season kicked off to many high dollar signing and moves, but none compare to the recent announcement today that Kevin Durant will leave the Oklahoma City Thunder and sign with the Golden State Warriors.
Durant is the latest roster addition to the “best in the west” joining the court with Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green to name a few. With a record setting 73-9 season for 2015-16, there has already been much speculation if the team can top that record again next season, but as many fans hope, the addition will bring in a ring unlike last season.
Just a few days ago, Nike released the newest signature shoe for Kevin Durant, the Nike KD9. While no OKC colorways have surfaced, it would be safe to assume that those orange accents will be swapped out for yellow to fit KD’s new squad.
What are your thoughts on the move by Kevin Durant to join the reigning MVP in Golden State? What impact will this have on his legacy as a player?
