With all of the fans as well as General Managers who are courting Kevin Durant to join their team, finally the “Durantalla” has made its decision. He is now an official member of the Golden State Warriors.
According to an article published by theplayerstribune.com, Kevin Durant has made his decision.
“This has been by far the most challenging few weeks in my professional life. I understood cognitively that I was facing a crossroads in my evolution as a player and as a man, and that it came with exceptionally difficult choices. What I didn’t truly understand, however, was the range of emotions I would feel during this process.
The primary mandate I had for myself in making this decision was to have it based on the potential for my growth as a player — as that has always steered me in the right direction. But I am also at a point in my life where it is of equal importance to find an opportunity that encourages my evolution as a man: moving out of my comfort zone to a new city and community which offers the greatest potential for my contribution and personal growth. With this in mind, I have decided that I am going to join the Golden State Warriors.”
The Durant deal is a two-years contract with the Golden State Warriors worth $54.3 million.
