Kevin Durant left the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2016 and joined the Golden State Warriors in pursuit of NBA championships and greatness. In three seasons at Oracle Arena, Durant and the Warriors went to three consecutive NBA Finals, winning two titles and Durant also won a couple of NBA Finals MVP awards.

Still, for a reason only known to Durant, he was unhappy and wanted to move as he never felt he belonged to the Warriors family. That family consisted of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala. Following a three-year stint with the Warriors, Durant left to join the Brooklyn Nets and team up with Kyrie Irving.

Los Angeles Lakers legend Magic Johnson can’t believe that Durant left and he cannot understand his logic.

“KD, I hope that he finds happiness,” Johnson said on ESPN’s First Take. “If you can’t find happiness at Golden State, where are you going to find it at? First of all, give Steph Curry a lot of credit for saying ‘I’m a two-time MVP, I’m willing to take a backseat because I want to win.’ Give Klay Thompson a lot of credit, because you know who’s game suffered the most? Klay Thompson. He used to get a lot more touches before KD got there and he said ‘I’m OK with that as long as we win a championship.’ Draymond Green, even he had to take a backseat.”

“So, Kevin, if you won back-to-back titles, you won MVP of the Finals as well, where are you going to find happiness at? I just want him to find happiness because when I look at Michael Jordan, when I look at Kobe Bryant, this brother, Kevin Durant, is one of the greatest scorers we’ve seen in NBA history, so I just want him to be happy. I just don’t know where he’s going to find it at if he can’t find it at Golden State.”

Golden State fans are also asking the same question, but only one man knows the answer — Kevin Durant.
