NBA Superstar Kevin Durant Announces That He Will Sign With Golden State Warriors

The team that won a record 73 regular season games in 2015-16 is adding one of the best players in the sport. Kevin Durant, the most coveted player in the 2016 free agency class, announced that he will leave the Oklahoma City Thunder for the Golden State Warriors. He made his decision with a post on The Players' Tribune.

From Durant's post to The Players' Tribune about his decision:

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. But I am also at a point in my life where it is of equal importance to find an opportunity that encourages my evolution as a man: moving out of my comfort zone to a new city and community which offers the greatest potential for my contribution and personal growth. With this in mind, I have decided that I am going to join the Golden State Warriors.

With Durant, Steph Curry, Draymond Green, and Klay Thompson, Golden State may have four of the 20 best players in the sport.
