Kevin Durant has signed with Golden State, declaring Oakland to be the city that offers “the greatest potential for my contribution and personal growth,” according to an article attributed to him on The Players’ Tribune.

This has been by far the most challenging few weeks in my professional life. I understood cognitively that I was facing a crossroads in my evolution as a player and as a man, and that it came with exceptionally difficult choices. What I didn’t truly understand, however, was the range of emotions I would feel during this process.


Congratulations to the Golden State Warriors on their 2017 NBA title, and seriously, Derek Jeter, you’re shitting up your job by not editing your underling more tightly.
