Kevin Durant joining the Warriors wasn’t the easy way out
Kevin Durant is sitting atop the basketball world after winning his first title and securing the MVP. It’s impossible to say that Durant made the wrong decision to leave Oklahoma City and join the Warriors.
Even though critics view KD’s move as taking the path of least resistance to a title, Colin thinks it was courageous because he knew he would get killed for joining a 73-win team, but trusted his instinct to pursue opportunity instead. The easy thing would have been to stay in Oklahoma City. It’s hard to argue he was wrong, after a legacy cementing Finals.
In the end, KD’s story is a typical American story of moving to a better situation is what America is all about.
LeBron and KD did what many of you have, or will do, repeatedly in your life. It is completely un-American to not embrace what Kevin Durant did.”
LeBron James didn’t hurt his legacy in the Finals, he helped it
The Cavs suffered their second Finals loss to the Warriors, and even though LeBron averaged a helthy triple double in the series, the Warriors endless fire power was ultimately too much to overcome.
Today, critics are saying that the Finals loss diminishes his legacy, but he was unquestionably the best player on the floor, for either team, in his 14th year. In Jordan’s 14th year, he was leading the Wizards to a sub .500 record.
LeBron isn’t even close to being done yet, and looks to have several peak years left. When it’s all said and done, Jordan’s 6 for 6 Finals record will be the only thing Jordan has over James.
“LeBron’s the greatest overall basketball player I’ve ever seen.”
