Kevin Durant has finally admitted that he would not have joined the Golden State Warriors if they had won game seven of the NBA finals.
The 2014 MVP has alluded to that fact in the past, but in a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine admitted that there was no way he could have joined the Dubs had they overcome LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Golden State historically let slip a 3-1 lead and it seems to have worked out in their favour - to some extent - as they won the battle for Durant's signature in the offseason.
Speaking to Rolling Stone, he said: "It felt like that whole thing was set up for me to leave. Especially after they blew a lead in the finals, because I damn sure wasn't going there if they'd won. But after Game Seven, I called up my agent and said, 'Damn, dude, Golden State - what if?'"
Durant and the Thunder were also 3-1 up against Golden State in the conference finals and the forward spoke about how much winning that series would've meant to him.
He added: "Man, I saw us in the ball caps and T-shirts, with our fans going crazy and dancing. That town was so good to us, showed us love even when we lost. I wanted it more for them than even me."
