Let's be honest, if you're here right now you don't care about what I have to say you just want to read that juicy rumor so you can pass it along to your friends, whether it's by sharing on social media, or just to bring up in conversation with acquaintances when you know they like basketball and you've run out of things to talk about. Here is the rumbling, from Grantland's Zach Lowe:
The Texas teams will take their shot if they hear the right intel, and Durant's hometown Wizards are biding their time in the easier conference. That intel is all over the place, by the way. Some teams are optimistic it will be open season, and others have heard rumblings that Durant has already made it known it will come down to the Thunder and Wizards. Nobody really knows.
Did you notice what I put in bold? It's like that scene in Dumb and Dumber when Jim Carrey asks the girl if he has a shot and she tells him "yeah, but it's one in a million." This is just like that, except it's a one in two chance to have Kevin Durant play for your favorite team, instead of a one in a million shot at dating someone who looked good in the nineties.
This rumbling is so good, that honestly, even as great as Zach Lowe's writing is, it really stands out from the rest of his writing in this piece. We've done the hard work of redoing his article to highlight today's big news.
And we've isolated the quote for you to copy and paste when you share on your social networks.
Durant has already made it known it will come down to the Wizards
