When the Warriors acquired Kevin Durant, the world went crazy. The Dubs somehow found a way to get better, despite having the best roster in the league already.
Three seasons later, with the Warriors on the verge of another long postseason run, his time may be coming to an end.
Many in the community are hesitant to say he'll be leaving the team this summer, but even the Warriors aren't sure what will happen next.
“We have no idea what he’s going to do,” a Golden State source told The Athletic's Frank Isola. “Everyone wants him to stay. There’s not much more we can sell him on. If he leaves, we’ll think of it as being lucky to have him for three great years.”
They're certainly right in one regard: there's not much more they can do.
They are who they will be, they are pretty much at the pinnacle of basketball greatness. If Kevin Durant wants to leave, what's going to stop him at this point?
No doubt, if the Warriors are still in the dark about his plans, there's got to be a chance he's departing this summer. Obviously, this is hope to the teams in strong pursuit of his services.
