Since the heartbreaking loss in game 7 of the Western Conference finals, Kevin Durant has had some tough decisions to make. After the Thunder was eliminated from the playoffs after blowing a 3-1 lead against the Golden State Warriors OKC fans were left wondering if it would be the last time they would see Kevin Durant in their prominent blue and orange colors?
Since the NBA season concluded Durant has met with several prospective teams willing to pay the maximum to add him to their roster. The all around leading scorer and player has met with the Boston Celtics, San Antonio Spurs, Los Angeles Clippers, Golden State Warriors, Miami Heat, and a couple other teams that are extremely interested in landing one of the leading scorers in the NBA.
The Thunder had the final say in Sunday’s meeting. Durant has made a statement that he will announce his decision early Monday morning or late Monday evening.
Teams anxious to hear back to see whether or not they will land a key player to their roster. Playing nine seasons in the NBA Durant has never won a championship so playing for a team that has won recently is a key factor for him.
So, as teams anxiously await Durant’s decision it’s time for basketball fans to express their opinions. Which team will Durant choose? Will the Clippers receive their Big four and perhaps win their first NBA title next season? Will Kevin Durant stay with his original team in OKC?
