Kevin goes to the Bay Area

Kevin Durant signed a 2 yr/$54.3 contract to play with the Golden State Warriors.   His former team the Oklahoma City Thunder led the Warriors 3-1 in the Western Conference Finals, but lost in game seven.   Durant is gravy training with Stephen Curry to try to win a NBA title.    There have been a lot of questions about playing with Russell Westbrook and could the Thunder have the supporting cast to win a title.   Now the Thunder have to pick up the pieces and maybe try to resign with Westbrook to a long-term deal, plus try to get a  superstar.

The Warriors have Durant, Curry, Draymond Green, and Klay Thompson  They will have the ability to resign all of them next season.  With the salary cap going up due to the new television deal it means that the Warriors can win multiple titles.    This is a lot different from Lebron James leaving Cleveland Cavaliers in 2010.    Will see if the Warriors win several NBA titles with Kevin Durant.
