It might not feel real yet since we haven’t seen Kevin Durant play for Phoenix, but the team officially unveiled him yesterday. He finds himself once again in the Western Conference as one of this season’s top title contenders, at least on paper. In his introductory press conference yesterday, Durant got emotional while discussing his time with the Nets. He said they helped him through a difficult time in his career.

The blockbuster deal for Kevin Durant shocked the NBA world at large as the only people who knew about the ongoing deal were the Nets and Suns. Usually, an NBA insider hints at what he thinks might happen as sources send him information. This was not the case in the Brooklyn-Phoenix trade.

Durant and the Suns are currently fifth in the Western Conference with a 32-28 record. All intentions are for him to return shortly after the All-Star break. Arizona Sports Betting Sites have the Suns at (+450) to win the Finals this season.

Kevin Durant is asked how he would sum up his time in Brooklyn, which is met with boos from Suns fans.

An emotional Durant: “I built a family over there. They will always be a part of my journey… I love these guys.”

Durant “thinks we have all the pieces” to win a championship in Phoenix

It’s been a rollercoaster ride in the four seasons that Kevin Durant played for the Brooklyn Nets. The trio of Durant, Kyrie Irving and James Harden only played 16 games together in Brooklyn. Kyrie and KD only played 74 games together, not even a full season.

Durant even mentioned it when asked about his time with the Nets. He knows their superstars didn’t see the court enough to be the championship contenders they wanted to be. Additionally, the two-time NBA champion mentioned how he started a family with the Nets organization and that they will always be a part of his journey.

Durant got emotional talking about the four years he spent in Brooklyn and had this to say to the media.

“I get emotional talking about her because that was four special years in my career that I came off an Achilles tendon [injury]. They helped me a lot, so I have nothing [bad to say].”—Kevin Durant

He also mentioned how his time in Brooklyn ended when Irving was traded. It was hard for Durant to want to stay with the team at this point because he felt they didn’t have a clear identity. Regardless, he’s now with the Suns and will battle with the best teams in the West to return to the NBA Finals.
