Kevin Durant decided to leave the Golden State Warriors, after winning two championships and take on a new challenge with the Brooklyn Nets along with Kyrie Irving.

On the latest episode of All The Smoke with Matt Barnes, Steve Kerr admitted he wasn’t surprised when Kevin Durant left the Warriors for the Nets.

(via Sportrush.com):

“It didn’t surprise us. We all had a sense that Kevin’s probably looking to move on and take on a new challenge.”

“He’d been here three years and won two championships and been Finals MVP twice. It was just, for his own personal career, time for a new challenge and we all totally respected that.”

Kevin Durant had the greatest achievements of his career during his stint in the ‘Bay Area’, as he won two championships to go along with two Finals MVP awards, while he competed for a three-peat in his third season, before succumbing to an Achilles tear.
