Kevin Durant chooses Golden State

It was a fun 48 hours for Celtics fans.

The signing of Al Horford and sales pitch including Tom Brady all had Celtics believing there was a sliver of hope that Kevin Durant will land in Boston. Durant will in fact be leaving Oklahoma City, but unfortunately, he'll be headed to the West Coast.

Durant announced late in the morning on the Players' Tribune that he'll join the Golden State Warriors.

According to ESPN's Mark Stein, Durant will sign a two-year deal worth 54.3 million. The second year is a player option.
