The Golden State Warriors look ever so close to winning their third straight championship and the franchises fourth in the last five years. However, a championship this season may lead to two-time Finals MVP, Kevin Durant, leaving the Dubs and continuing the rest of his career elsewhere.
According to Robert Littal of BSO, Durant is more likely to leave the Warriors if they win their third straight championship in a row than if they lose in the Western Conference Finals or the NBA Finals.
Kevin Durant originally left the Thunder for the Warriors on the sole purpose of winning championships, the superstar Small Forward already has back to back rings with a very good chance of a third coming this year. KD has accomplished what he set out to do which leaves him with a decision to make, there’s a very high chance that Durant will look to find a new challenge elsewhere and enhance his reputation.
The New York Knicks have been linked to KD a lot this season and the franchise has cleared up a lot of space through the Porzingis trade for a big-name star. If Kevin Durant does want to show he can dominate no matter what team he’s playing for, this could be the opportunity for him to do so.
Durant can become an unrestricted free agent this summer if he declines his 2019-20 player option with the Golden State Warriors.
