I wish people would just get off Durant’s case. As his dad said, it was his time to do something selfish. I don’t necessarily think Durant chose GS because he thought it was an easy road to the title. I think he chose GS because he likes the guys that play there and he loves the system they run. He wants to have fun at his job — and to maximize that fun, he needed to play in a system where they pass up a good shot for a great shot.
And don’t forget, the Warriors have won a total of one championship in the past 40 years. I know they look great on paper, but this isn’t the 1960’s Celtics, 1980’s Lakers, or 1990’s Bulls he’s joining. This is a very talented team that has a CHANCE to do some special things.
