After eight NBA seasons with Oklahoma City Thunder, Kevin Durant decided to sign with the Golden State Warriors this summer.
Nobody expected that because they had 3-1 against Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, but after they lost 4-3, almost every journalists and analysts expected from Durant to sign 1+1 for the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Now, Kevin Durant is a villain and he received so many critiques because of the decision.
Many NBA Hall of Famers have voiced their displeasure because he signed with the Golden State Warriors. Charles Barkley wasn’t so happy, because he never wanted to join Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen in the Chicago Bulls when they had 72-10.
“I was disappointed. I was disappointed like I was disappointed when LeBron went to Miami,” Barkley said on ESPN Radio’s Mike & Mike on Wednesday. “Kevin is a terrific player. He’s a good kid. But just disappointed with the fact that he weakened another team and he’s gonna kind of gravy train on a terrific Warriors team. Just disappointed from a competitive standpoint. Because just like it meant more to LeBron to win one in Cleveland, it would mean more to Kevin to win one in Oklahoma than it would be in Golden State.”
The legendary shooter, Reggie Miller also voiced his concern regarding the move.
“Between the huge signings of mediocre players and now KD defecting to the Warriors, there are really only five or six teams you are interested in watching—and only three of those have a real shot to win the championship. It’s going to be a boring season unless the Warriors, Cleveland Cavaliers, San Antonio Spurs, New York Knicks or Boston Celtics are on TNT or ESPN every week.” Miller said to Bleacher Report.
Kevin Durant’ decision is a very questionable, because he had 3-1 against the Warriors, and now he will play with Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green. Can they beat the previous record, 73-9?
