Durant recently talked about the real reason for leaving the Warriors in a podcast: after the conflict with Dream-Chasing Green broke out in 2018, he originally wanted to spread the story in the locker room and then turn over the page, but no one discussed it in the locker room, as if it had nothing to do with them!
In the summer of 2016, the Warriors defeated Thunder 4-3 in the Western Conference finals and advanced to the stage of the finals. In this western conference final, the Warriors used their five small lineup system to destroy the main force of youth. In the offseason, Durant joined the Warriors’ Shock League, which heralded the grand finale of the League. The Warriors won the championship twice, and Durant won the FMVP twice.
However, in 2018, there was an infighting in the Warriors. Grimm and Durant clashed: "Before you came, we were champions", which made Durant’s heart extremely unbalanced and thought that he did not get enough respect and voice in the team.
The Warriors in 2019 are definitely the darkest moment. In the series against the Raptors in the finals, the Warriors suffered a serious wave of injuries. Iguodala was hit in the head, Durant’s achilles tendon was broken, and Clay Thompson’s cruciate ligament was torn. Finally, he regretted being out.
In 2019, Durant finally decided to leave this sad place and join hands with his good brother Owen to join the Nets. Durant’s three-year warrior trip is over completely!
