When news first broke out that Kevin Durant would officially part ways from Oklahoma City Thunder en route to forming arguably the most weaponized NBA team in the league’s history via Golden State, heaps of criticism flooded his way from distraught fans and professional athletes alike. However, accomplishing what he originally set out to do — winning a championship title — many praised the star for his openness in accepting a new team, city, culture and role.
