Oklahoma City Thunder fans are absolutely furious this evening after star player Kevin Durant agreed to join Golden State Warriors – with some even burning his replica jersey.
Where Durant would play his basketball next season was the NBA’s biggest unanswered question this summer, with fans left wondering as he became a free agent.
But Durant ended speculation earlier today when he posted his decision on The Players Tribune website, with his two-year contract at Golden State thought to be worth an incredible $54.3 million. Not too shabby, eh?
But regardless of the payday, fans of Oklahoma are seething at the news, with several making their feelings known across social media:

Durant will now form an absolutely formidable attacking line-up at the Warriors, where he will join stars Klay Thompson, Steph Curry and Draymond Green.
What do you think of Durant’s decision – and the reaction from fans?
