Warriors are Front-Runners for Kevin Durant: Social Media Reacts
Imagine this: Kevin Durant playing alongside Steph Curry, Draymond Green, and Klay Thompson in a Golden State Warriors uniform.
Believe it or not, it could be happening.
According to reports from Yahoo!’s Adrian Wojnarowski, league sources have told him that if the Oklahoma City Thunder can’t re-sign the all-star forward, the Golden State Warriors appear to be the front-runners for his services.
Of course, the Warriors can’t pursue anything at the moment, as doing so would be against the league rules. However, it is believed that Durant has plenty of interest in joining the Warriors should he reach free agency this summer, as it would give the 27-year-old his best chance at winning his first NBA championship.
Draymond Green seemed cool with the idea of the team adding another all-star in the offseason. Via Yahoo!:
“We’re all about winning,” Draymond Green told The Vertical. “One thing guys on this team don’t care about is who is getting the shots, or who is scoring. Guys definitely want to play here, play with us. We’re smiling. We’re having fun. You can tell that. I definitely think it’s become one of those places where guys will want to play.”
Of course, seeing Durant go to Golden State would probably turn the Warriors from almost-unbeatable to actually unbeatable.
That’s pretty big news. So, of course, social media reacted accordingly:
Kevin Durant to the Warriors? Somebody kill me
