Kevin Durant admits to being surprised by the Bay Area traffic

Published Add your comment

A lot has changed for Kevin Durant in a short space of time. The forward has switched the Oklahoma City Thunder for the Golden State Warriors in what is the biggest move since LeBron James announced his decision in 2010.

His teammates are new, his uniform is different and his surroundings have completely changed.

Not only are his coaching staff, medical support and arenas all new, but he is also adapting to a different city. One which is much bigger than his previous home.

Despite previously having two All-Stars in Durant and Russell Westbrook, Oklahoma City was far from one of the NBA's bigger cities. However, switching to the Bay Area sees Durant now living in one of America's more populous areas.

Speaking to the media for the first time as a Golden State player, Durant admitted he was caught out by traffic in Oakland, saying: ''I wasn't used to that in Oklahoma City."

There will be a lot more for KD to get used to as the season goes on, but Steve Kerr's system will be the most important. The transition into the starting five should be seamless, but there is the potential for some bumps along the way.
