During his time with the Warriors, Durant won two championships and was beloved by fans, who have been awaiting his return since his departure. Durant did play in Golden State in 2021, but it was during the pandemic in front of no fans.

“I’m excited to get back in front of the people I call family there in that organization and fans that I went as hard as I could for for three years there, so it should be fun,” Durant said.

Durant also discusses how he’s feeling heading into the year, what he thinks about the team so far, playing LeBron in the second game and much more in this media session.
