Kevin Durant rocks Nets jersey for first time since leaving Warriors

Kevin Durant rocks Nets jersey for first time since leaving Warriors

Slowly but surely, Kevin Durant is moving on from the Warriors. 

After electing to sign with the Brooklyn Nets in free agency. Durant expressed his feelings on his time in the Bay, including the elation of winning the NBA Finals and the belief that he never would be accepted in the same way Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala were.

The next step in Durant's quest to move on from the Warriors came Thursday when he donned the black and white of Brooklyn for the first time in a promotional shoot.

Seeing KD rocking a No. 7 Nets jersey is ... a little weird.

Those jerseys are clean, though,

Durant won't see the floor this season as he continues to rehab from the ruptured Achilles he suffered in Game 5 of the NBA Finals. Once Durant is back to 100 percent, he'll join Kyrie Irving and a band of young Nets trying to take over the Eastern Conference.

As for the Warriors, they remade their roster after Durant's exit and will be looking to go back to their roots with a ball-movement centric attack that lets Curry, new addition D'Angelo Russell and Thompson -- when he returns from his torn ACL -- torment opposing defenses.

Ex-Warriors big Omari Spellman dominating for T-Wolves' G League team

Ex-Warriors big Omari Spellman dominating for T-Wolves' G League team

On Feb. 6, the Warriors traded Omari Spellman to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The T-Wolves have had five games since, yet the big man hasn't suited up for any of them.

Why not? Because for some reason, he's been assigned to the Iowa Wolves in the G League.

Oddly enough, Spellman played in Santa Cruz against the Sea Dubs on Feb. 12, recording 15 points, seven rebounds, one assist and one block in 28 minutes off the bench.

He started against the Salt Lake City Stars a week later, registering 20 points, six rebounds, one assist and one steal.

And on Sunday against the South Bay Lakers, Spellman dominated to the tune of 32 points (11-for-20 overall, 6-for-11 3s), nine rebounds, five assists, three steals and two blocks.

The 22-year-old simply is too good for the G League, and he should be with Minnesota 100 percent of the time.

It's safe to assume something happened behind the scenes that hasn't been brought to light yet. We will update you should that information become available.

Michael Jordan's meme joke at Kobe Bryant tribute makes Steph Curry laugh

Michael Jordan's meme joke at Kobe Bryant tribute makes Steph Curry laugh

Michael Jordan spoke at Kobe Bryant's memorial Monday at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

And while it was an incredibly sad day, the six-time NBA champion did provide the world -- including Warriors superstar Steph Curry -- with a moment of levity during his speech.

The original "Crying Jordan" meme -- derived from a photo taken during the five-time NBA MVP's 2009 Hall of Fame induction -- hit the mainstream in 2015, and stuck around for several years.

"I told my wife I wasn't going to do this because I didn't want to see that for the next three or four years," Jordan said.
