A Warriors squad that led the league in scoring during the 2015-16 just added four-time NBA scoring champ Kevin Durant.
Talk about an embarrassment of riches.
One Warriors was practically giddy with excitement at the thought of the addition of Durant.
"The most exciting thing to me...is the potential explosiveness we will have on the offensive end. We got one of the best scorers to ever play in this league joining already one of the most potent offensives of all time...gives me chills to think of the possibilities!!" Thompson told CSN Bay Area's Ros Gold-Onwude on Monday.
Durant, who had spent his entire nine-year career with the Thunder organization, led the NBA in scoring in 2009-10, 2010-11, 2011-12 and 2013-14.
Last season, the Warriors averaged a league-leading 114.9 points per game.
Durant made the announcement that he was joining the Warriors in a post on the Players Tribune website:
“The primary mandate I had for myself in making this decision was to have it based on the potential for my growth as a player — as that has always steered me in the right direction,” Durant wrote. “But I am also at a point in my life where it is of equal importance to find an opportunity that encourages my evolution as a man: moving out of my comfort zone to a new city and community which offers the greatest potential for my contribution and personal growth. With this in mind, I have decided that I am going to join the Golden State Warriors.”
