    Good for him. 'Basketball decision" "About winning championships" - He didn't lie!

    Bad for the rest of the league.

    Curry
    Thompson
    Durant
    Green
    Who cares?

    Congratulations to those long suffering Warriors fans. Your 3 weeks of hell is over.

    I was hoping OKC and if not perhaps Boston. Now the Warriors are a monster. No one in the West is going to be the Warriors in a 7 game series.

    It's only a two year deal with a player option in year two. I wonder if he'll opt out next season and resign for more money with an even higher cap.

    People can call him names or lose respect for him all they want. Truth is, Golden State has proven to be a very good organization and they are set up to win. As a player, I'd want to win first. Nothing is given, they still have to go out and earn it. Good on Durant, I can't fault him for this.

    What a pussy.

    Now, does Westbrook get traded? OKC can't possibly think they'll be able to keep him now. Or does the chances of Westbrook staying increase?
