    Basically KD is just a guy who can help a 72-win team win one more game.

    Can't believe he's joining them, especially after how OKC lost last year.

    If Durant didn't go a miserable 10-31 from the field in game 6 his former team would of beaten his current team easily

    If you can't beat them join them....literally. What a ring chaser

    I'm no expert, but I'm kind of confused by two years also. Even one year would make more sense, but I guess the cap will be even more ridiculous in 2 years and he'll still have a great market for his services.

    Lol!

    Man he pretty much just said **** you to his OKC family. It's not like they weren't competitive. They were contenders. Pussy move.

    So, he'll help Curry get a ring, then bolt by opting out with his PO, and this all starts over again next year, but this time with WB as a FA, too.

    The Lebron issue was not that he left - it's the way he went about it. Not giving Cleveland a courtesy. "Taking my talents". A whole show about him. etc.

    It's really a one year deal. He'll opt out next year and sign a gigantic deal with the even-higher salary cap. GSW will have the cap space next year.

    Has any team in the history of the game ever had 4 all stars and maybe borderline superstars still very much in their prime?

    6 years ago.

    SIX.

    Did you or have you changed your thought process on some things, if not most things, in six years?
