The NBA In 2016, the world was shaken by Kevin Durant’s joining of the Golden State Warriors.
We have never seen a player who was MVP in his prime join a team which has just won 73 of its games.
It was the most talented player in the game and was part of the best team.
The Cleveland Cavaliers were one of the teams that felt Durant’s wrath on the Warriors.
They were forced to play Golden State in the 2017 and 2018, NBA finals. Both teams lost.
Durant was the finals’ MVP in both of these finals. Cleveland won once.
Tristan Thompson, a center for the Cavs in those years, was one of their key players.
To discuss Durant’s move to Golden State, he appeared on Draymond Green’s Show.

He was as shocked as most NBA players of that day.
The 2016-2017 Warriors are among the most successful teams in NBA history.
In the regular season, they had a record 67-15. In the playoffs, they lost only one game.
Golden State won fifteen consecutive playoff games and finished 16-1.
Most likely, we will never again see this level of dominance in the NBA.
The NBA is a star-driven league, and the Warriors have had many of them during their tenure.
