On Monday, Kevin Durant announced that he would be joining the Golden State Warriors. Penning the announcement on The Player’s Tribune—to which Durant serves as deputy publisher—he writes:
“This has been by far the most challenging few weeks in my professional life. I understood cognitively that I was facing a crossroads in my evolution as a player and as a man, and that it came with exceptionally difficult choices. What I didn’t truly understand, however, was the range of emotions I would feel during this process.
The primary mandate I had for myself in making this decision was to have it based on the potential for my growth as a player – as that has always steered me in the right direction…With this in mind, I have decided that I am going to join the Golden State Warriors.”
