Kevin Durant is a Golden State Warrior

It happened.

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The Warriors will feature a starting line-up of Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, Klay Thompson, Steph Curry and fill in any warm big body who can D and rebound acceptably, forming the best starting five in the NBA.

I don't think anyone thought Kevin would make a move this year, instead opting for a one year deal in OKC to do the process all over again, but KD is heading to the Bay Area.  Golden State will need to ditch Barnes, Ezeli and Bogut at minimum and then leverage the possibility of a ring in the free agent market for a few NBA veterans willing to accept lesser contracts, but that's a small price to pay for one of the best basketball players on the planet in the prime of his career.

I'm happy for KD.
