For the first time since perhaps his arrival, Kevin Durant looks like a true member of the Warriors. Though his Achilles tear was a tragic and unfortunate way to end his season, he put his body on the line and risked everything for the Warriors — a sentiment they will not quickly forget.
The feeling around the league regarding the future of the 10x All-Star has changed dramatically in the hours following his injury (and Golden State’s loss). The Warriors owe it to him to see to it he is secured for life, and KD will no doubt strongly consider staying, given the circumstances.
But in a rather shocking revelation, Ric Bucher went on the airwaves on and explained to us all why we shouldn’t be so quick to dismiss the notion of Durant signing elsewhere this summer.
