NBA Twitter Reacts to Kevin Durant Joining Golden State Warriors
- Updated: July 4, 2016
Kevin Durant just shook up the NBA landscape with his decision to join the Golden State Warriors. Here is some of the mixed reaction from around the league, players and analysts alike.
When the news broke, Dwyane Wade had a strange tweet whose meaning is still unclear. To the best of our knowledge, it seems like another subtweet at the Miami Heat front office that obviously just lost out on Durant.
Relationships are important people!

With respect to the Durant news, Stephen A. Smith was ready as ever with a scorching hot take:
Don't give a damn what anyone says: weak move by KD. You go to GSW, the team who beat you, when you're already on a title contender? Please!

Everyone is so hyped up on the match up problems on the offensive end? They still gotta come down the other end.. Not a very big team?

The Portland Trail Blazers got knocked out by the Warriors last year and the job for the starting backcourt isn’t getting any easier:
