Here’s something that shocked NBA fans on Monday.

In a pretty shocking announcement via The Players’ Tribune, Kevin Durant revealed that he has experienced “by far the most challenging few weeks in my professional life” he has decided to leave the Oklahoma City Thunder for the Golden State Warriors.

Durant is now expected to sign a two-year deal worth $54.3 million with the new team, and will have a player option after the first year.

“The primary mandate I had for myself in making this decision was to have it based on the potential for my growth as a player — as that has always steered me in the right direction,” Durant explained. “But I am also at a point in my life where it is of equal importance to find an opportunity that encourages my evolution as a man: moving out of my comfort zone to a new city and community which offers the greatest potential for my contribution and personal growth.”

Durant in the same team as MVP Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson? Definitely looking forward to what the team will be showing off!
