    People have discussed Durant’s choice as to why he did it and wa it a good move or a bad one.

     “Tim Kawakami dropped a massive oral history of free agent meetings in the Hamptons in the summer of 2016, in his story he got a few key players to open up and explain about the few days especially Kevin Durant, he said that in the summer he needed “ validation from my peers”. The majority of the warriors cleared their schedules to go to the hamptons and convince Kevin to sign with the warriors.”

    What KD meant by “I needed validation from my peers, teams and GM’s” was so he could have more confidence and feel good about himself so that he could work hard.
