    KD thinks the Warriors were underdogs when he joined them.

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/nba...ews&li=BBnbfcL


    Kevin Durant earned a lot of hate and criticism after signing with the Golden State Warriors in the summer of 2016. After spending nine years with the Oklahoma City Thunder -making one trip to the NBA Finals in 2012-, Durant was tired of not finding the same success he had during that magical season.

    He joined a team with three stars, raising a lot of eyebrows around the league. The Warriors went to three straight NBA Finals with KD on the roster, making it five total. They already were a dangerous team in the association, but the 2014 NBA MVP believed he needed to go to the Bay to help those 'underdogs.'

    Talking on "Million Dollaz Worth," the 2x NBA champion made a controversial claim, saying he perceived the Dubs as underdogs. This was a key reason to go there and join forces with Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.

    ďTheyíve never been a winning organization when I was in the league. Nobody liked Golden State. It still felt like an underdog. Because Iím looking at the totality of the franchiseÖ not the last five years. Never been a perennial winner from the 50s. So Iím like, damn, this is an underdog franchise. This feels good, this feels where Iím supposed to be.Ē

    Well, it's hard to agree with KD on this one. The Warriors were a 73-9 team the prior season; they had won the NBA championship in 2015, so they were anything but an underdog.

    Still, that move paid off, and he became a champion, winning two Finals MVP in the process. Nevertheless, this remains one of the most controversial free agency moves in NBA history. Even after five years, people are still talking about Durant's decision to join the team that had previously beaten him.
    Whateva you say, Snake.

    ********, He wants to make it seem like his rings were worth something.

    I hope the nets and clippers go home. Durant does not deserve any more rings and Kawhi is a *****.

    The Lakers can follow them as well.

    Everyone believes he was a coward to join the Warriors... he knew this would be the case before he joined. Doesn't that make him brave for doing what would be heavily criticized by the NBA world?
    The Baker has come. Believe the hype.

    What made this worse for me was that he didn't even have the excuse of playing with a bum franchise to begin with....SEA/OKC drafted him and got better every year, to the point they were up 3-1 in the WCF against the same GS team he ran off to.

    Sure, in a sense. But it certainly doesn't make the titles he's won really worth a damn....certainly not in the same light as LBJ's in CLE, Dirk's, etc....This is partly on the media too though, for putting so much emphasis on ring count when judging a great player.

    Thatís like saying it takes guts to sell out and join what youíve been opposed to in your previous battles. Oh yeah, the trolling schtick.

    Itís a shame that you gave up making good posts. I used to really enjoy them.

    Is this the logic the world really uses?

    Don't knuckle up against the classmate that called you out, it's braver to go get a weapon. F___ the criticism.

    Thank god for basketball, because Durant isn't the brightest.
