It’s only preseason, but Kevin Durant’s transition onto the Golden State Warriors seems to be going swimmingly.
Not only has Durant given us glimpses of the terrifying and beautiful free-flowing basketball he and the rest of the Warriors should produce on just about every single offensive possession, he also appears to have mastered the Warriors’ favorite 3-point celebration.
Before the Warriors blew a 3-1 lead in the Finals, Stephen Curry and others would unleash a three, and well before it hit the rim, somebody would turn around and start running down the court for defense.
Durant is doing that, now, too:
We haven’t seen Durant put his arms up and start running back on defense during a Curry or Klay Thompson three just yet, but it’s only a matter of time.
The Warriors are going to be so good, so thrilling to watch, and so fun to root against. Expect plenty of these celebrations.
