Draymond schemed to bring Kevin Durant to the Warriors earlier than expected

Kevin Durant’s decision to join the Golden State Warriors is still regarded as one of the most unexpected and contentious events in NBA history. Despite catching everyone off guard, Draymond Green confesses to having been “planning” the move for a year.

Green then recounted that he opted to take $3 million less than his potential earnings, believing it would enable the Warriors to bolster their roster further. After a disappointing conclusion to the 2015-16 NBA season, the Warriors set their sights on Durant, ultimately securing the 2014 NBA MVP.

This partnership immediately paid dividends, leading to three consecutive NBA Finals appearances and championships in 2017 and 2018. While fans continue to criticize this move, Durant and the Warriors have moved forward and remain focused on winning, even after parting ways.

The Warriors clinched another championship in 2022, with Stephen Curry earning his first Finals MVP, while Durant has struggled to replicate his past successes with the Brooklyn Nets (2019-23) and Phoenix Suns.

Years after Durant’s decision reshaped the NBA landscape, it remains a contentious topic among fans. Nevertheless, history cannot be altered, and those championships will forever belong to the Warriors.
