When Kevin Durant makes the Basketball Hall of Fame some day, his résumé will include the fact that he won his first ring as a member of the Golden State Warriors in 2017. This is something that no one can ever take away from him. To many, his ring is “tainted” or something because of the fact that he had to form a superteam to get it, but Durant probably doesn’t care, largely because he doesn’t consider Golden State a superteam.
Still, there are a lot of people who give Durant crap for joining the Warriors in an attempt to get a ring. Usually Durant lets these criticisms from random people on Twitter go unanswered, but dude was in celebration mode on Thursday during Golden State’s championship parade, so he decided to fire back.
First up there was this person who asked if Durant would have joined the Cavs if they won a ring, referencing the fact that he joined the Warriors after they knocked his Oklahoma City Thunder out of the postseason the year before.
Durant has probably heard/read this one a ton over the last few months. On Thursday, he finally got the chance to respond.
