Surely People Will Be Happy To Hear Kevin Durant Say He Took The "Hardest Road" By Signing With The Warriors
You know what? It's been about four days since Kevin Durant signed with the Warriors and I think that it's been just enough time for me to get over the disappointment of knowing that - barring a cataclysmic lack of chemistry - the 2017 NBA Champion has already been decided. I've said my piece, and I really just don't have it in me to continue to argue how weak of a move I feel it is to join the super team that just bounced you from the playoffs. I've moved on from debating the thought process behind the decision, and I am just about ready for the season to start so I can actively hate Kevin Durant and the Golden State Warriors with every fiber of my being.
That's why I absolutely love that he just tried to tell the world that joining a 73 win team - that was one win from back-to-back championships - as a top 3 talent in the league is the "hardest road". Come on Kevin, tell me how difficult it is going to be to slot seamlessly into a position that just got a mediocre talent in Harrison Barnes a max contract. Tell me how challenging it's going to be to join a lineup named aptly after homicide. Tell me how tough it's going be to get used to waking up to 70 degree whether every morning. Tell me about how strenuous it's going to be to work your way out of that Oklahoma City cocoon to finally get comfortable spreading your wings in Oakland. Please, tell me about the trials and tribulations of getting every endorsement under the bright Northern California sun as you coast to a championship(s). Continues to say things that make you that much more unlikable. I want to hear all of it. Start spewing a bunch of irrational shit that the average fan - not making over $25 million a year - can't possibly relate to. Become the new LeBron. We are going to despise you anyway, might as well make it easier for us.
