Can Kevin Durant win outside Golden State to finally silence his critics?

When Kevin Durant joined the Golden State Warriors in 2016, many fans considered it a weak move. Not only were the Warriors a 73-win team before KD’s arrival, but they also eliminated Kevin Durant and Co. from the playoffs the previous season. The move shocked the entire world as no superstar had ever joined a team that eliminated him in the playoffs the previous year. But Kevin Durant achieved what he wanted and became a 2-time Champion with the Warriors.

However, KD’s legacy has taken a hit since he left Golden State. He has been unable to win any hardware despite having been a part of two super teams in Brooklyn and Phoenix. Durant is 35 years old and in the later stages of his career. And if he manages to fail again with Devin Booker and Bradley Beal as his teammates, the NBA world will never let him forget his failure. KD is having an incredible season so far, averaging 31 points and 6.5 rebounds.
