Kevin Durant May Join Warriors to Win A Champ Ring
Durant, who had been drafted by Oklahoma City Thunders (OKC) nine years ago, fell short in eliminating the Warriors in the Western Conference finals last season. The said match between GSW and OKC has been an action-packed one and of NBA Championship level.
Jerry West told Durant about his NBA career in which he lost seven times while with LA Lakers in the NBA finals before winning a championship in his 12th season. He further said that those losses still eat him even today ( West is 78 years old). West hoped that Durant, who appeared to the Finals once, won't make same losses like he did back then. He also told Durant that playing with Golden State Warriors (GSW) stars like Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green would make it much easier for Durant. Scoring would be much easier for Durant and he'd be more appreciated for his all-round game.
Averaging 28.2 points, 8.2 rebounds and 5 assists, Durant is surely an asset to any team. If he's concerned more on winning a title under his belt, then he'd have a greater chance if he's with GSW. Durant is reportedly to make his decision on Sunday night or Monday morning (US time) according to Mercury News. He's also considering the Boston Celtics. Let us wait then in the next 24 hours on who gets ace player Kevin Durant.
