Kevin Durant is arguably one of the most influential players to ever grace the game of basketball. He has given NBA fanatics innumerable cherishable moments throughout his career. However, KD has had his share of controversial moments on the court. None bigger than the feud he had with Russell Westbrook.

In a recent podcast, Durant voiced why he decided to leave the Golden State Warriors and join the Brooklyn Nets. When he was with the Dubs, they won the championship twice in a row. Hence, this decision came as a shock for many of his fans.

He said, I wanted a new experience. I wanted to live on the East Coast too. I’ve always wanted to be with a different organization. I wanted to try the same feeling I had in these organizations and take it somewhere else. At that point in my career, I was like, why not.

He further continued,I have the same relationship with everybody in Brooklyn. It’s cool. We are all individuals, we have our separate lives. However, it feels like we all rock out together.”

Ever since Kevin Durant landed in Brooklyn, the franchise has picked up some of the biggest names in the game. That includes James Harden and Kyrie Irving among others. Together, they have created a formidable squad that can give any team a run for their money.

Some critics and analysts are of the opinion that the Nets are the perfect championship contenders. Conversely, in a season where most of the stalwarts are either injured or sidelined, the Nets have come up with amazing performances and look all set to compete for the title this season.

KD and the Brooklyn Nets are second in the Eastern Conference standings. Moreover, they are well on course to play in the playoffs scheduled in June this year.
