... with all due respect to his nine successful seasons with the Oklahoma City Thunder franchise, the 2014 NBA MVP has no regrets about his decision to depart as a free agent to the Warriors last offseason, regardless of what the near future holds.
“I made the 100 percent correct decision, win or lose,” Durant told The Undefeated after the Warriors’ practice at AT&T Center in San Antonio on Sunday. “I feel like this is the place I was supposed to be. I appreciate everything I’ve done before this. But I’m here now, and I feel like it’s a great spot for me to be.
Will you be playing for the Warriors next season? (Durant has a one-year player option for next season with the Warriors paying $27.7 million.)
Yeah. I love it here. I love my teammates. I love the city [of Oakland, California]. I love the organization. I love it here. I don’t plan on going anywhere else.
Guys, has it sunk in for you yet? I'm still a bit in a daze, finding it difficult to believe that we've become such a premier team that one of the best players of his generation not only chose us, but he loves it so much that he feels this is where he was meant to be.
Lacob, Jerry West, Kerr, Meyers, Curry etc. can't be thanked enough for the work they've done to usher in our present glory age. Regardless of how long it lasts and the years we've endured as a fanbase, we are incredibly fortunate.
