Splash! Kevin Durant finalizes two-year deal with Warriors

Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr joked that he is yet to decide whether prized recruit Kevin Durant will start for the NBA's new glamour team.

Durant, who confirmed he was leaving Oklahoma on Monday, will be the highest paid player on the Warriors' roster, earning more than two-time MVP Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green. (.) But those guys, they came in there and it felt like there were hand-in-hand.

Durant said former teammate Russell Westbrook took it hard.

"We have guys who are not just shooters, not just ball handlers". I'm excited to get back on the floor with him as well. In the end, the togetherness Warriors' top players provided a window into the organization's family atmosphere.

"It felt like they just loved each other unconditionally", Durant said.

When asked about Thompson being part of the pitch meeting, Durant quipped about receiving a text message from him: "I didn't know he had a phone". Curry in turn made Durant feel completely comfortable. "He's the face of the National Basketball Association in a lot of people's eyes".

"And they're in a playoff series, and I know there was some conversation around the Thunder team of, 'Hey man, this guy (Green) kicked (Thunder big man) Steven Adams in the nuts twice in this series, and what are you doing hanging out with this guy?" "Obviously we were teammates for so long and I had a lot of great memories. I'm sure he wasn't happy about the decision, but he respected it as my friend".

"We live in this superhero comic book world and you are either a superhero or a villain". "To play with them and play our style, I think that was attractive to him".
