Kevin Durant, 27, was the most wanted free agent in the NBA this summer, with no fewer than six teams chasing his signature to sign for them. On July 4, he announced he was going to be joining Stephen Curry, 28, at the Golden State Warriors, which will surely make them early favorites to NBA Champions next year. Needless to say, Warriors fans are going wild on Twitter about their new arrival!
Kevin, who was a Oklahoma City Thunder regular for 9 seasons, decided to shun a return offer from OKC, as well as the Boston Celtics, Miami Heat, Los Angeles Clippers and San Antonio Spurs to sign for the Warriors on a reported 2-year contract worth $54.3 million. And the fans just cannot wait to see him on the court with Steph!

The fans are certainly eager to see how their new charge perform alongside Steph and Klay Thompson, and that first game with those three on the court will be an intriguing watch, for sure!
The purists might argue that this will make the NBA unwatchable next season, with the Warriors dominating all. After all, they did come off a 73-win season, so signing Kevin will make them completely unbeatable, right? We’ll have to wait and see.
HollywoodLifers, are you shocked that Kevin decided to opt for the Warriors instead of resigning for Oklahoma? Do you think it’s a great move? Or should he have joined someone else? Tell us what you think below!
