Much like he did a few seasons ago, Kevin Durant has the chance to rock the sports world with just his decision to sign with team this offseason.
Durant is already a champion and NBA Finals MVP, and literally has nothing else to prove with the Golden State Warriors as it’s pretty much been proven the team needs him to win as they are currently down 3-1 to the Toronto Raptors in the NBA Finals.
Now that he has accomplished what he wanted to do in the Bay Area, it’s time to prove he can do it somewhere else, but according to a recent report, his next move will most definitely not involve the Warriors or even Lakers.
“ESPN’s Royce Young says that this summer, in free agency, Durant has a riddle to solve. He needs to live up to his potential as the undisputed leader of a top-flight, title-contending team,” writes Pro Sports Daily. “Of course Durant is good enough, Young suggests, to be the best player on a title team—as a player. And off the court, well, he’s learning. One of the draws of playing in the Bay has been a crash course in team leadership and chemistry from professor Stephen Curry. Soon it will be time to find a new home, so people will stop saying what Young says: “On the Warriors, it seems like he’s just winning them for Steph.”
This could be huge for another franchise. There have been heavy rumors that Durant might be taking his talents to either the Brooklyn Nets or New York Knicks once free agency kicks off.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
