It’s now official.
Prized small forward Kevin Durant will be joining the Golden State Warriors for the 2016-17 season.
It turns out, one of the biggest reasons for the 6’9″ forward’s shocking decision was the persuasion of Warriors forward Draymond Green.
In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Green had this to say about recruiting the former MVP:
I mean, I was really just telling him about the fun we have together—the fun that this team has and how he would be welcome here with open arms. And it’s not about ‘I’ with us on this team. It’s all about ‘we’ and winning championships. He fits that mold perfectly because that’s who he is. It doesn’t take him changing his whole game or changing his personality to come join us. He’s just going to be Kevin.”
