After three years and two championship, the Warriors and Kevin Durant said their last goodbyes to each other. Durant moved to the east coast pairing up with Kyrie Irving while at the same team making the Brooklyn Nets relevant in the NBA again.

The Warriors also lost Klay Thompson who will miss a big chunk of the upcoming season, which will leave a lot of room for Steph Curry to manoveur and take more shoots than he normally would. Next season will be much harder than last couple of years, especially after you lose Durant and Andre Igoudala who brings tremendous experience.

In a recent interview he did at the golf tournament he attended, Curry said he is extremely proud of what the Warriors achieved in the past couple of seasons having Durant as their memeber.

“I mean, the three years that we had were special. With K.D., we had three straight Finals appearances. We won two of them, and we accomplished a lot as a group. Everybody talks about the amount of talent that we had on our team, but that doesn’t guarantee that you can figure it out on the court, that you can put all the pieces together to be successful. I’m really proud of what we accomplished."

There was a lot of talks recently about the free agency and how it impacted a lot of players and teams, especially now that a lot of analysts believe NBA is a league where super stars players have too much power. Curry said top players like KD have the right to make any decision they want in their careers, especially since they have the biggest number of teams interested in their services.

“The beauty of free agency is everybody has a decision, everybody has a choice. You want to find your happiness wherever that is. The beauty of the NBA is everybody has that decision at some point, especially guys that deserve it, like KD and other top free agents. I like to look at what we accomplished and focus on that and be extremely proud of this run that we had. Now we are going to have to recreate it in terms of what it means going forward.”
