Golden State Warriors Announce They Plan To Retire Kevin Durant’s Jersey

Who says break ups have to be messy?

This past weekend, Kevin Durant announced that he was leaving the Golden State Warriors to play for the Brooklyn Nets. And instead of wallowing about it, the Warriors took the high road and as a thank you for his time spent with the team, they will retired KD’s #35 jersey. Here’s what team owner Joe Lacob had to say in an official team statement:

The jersey retirement of an active player is uncommon but given the impact KD has had in the Bay Area, the gesture is certainly worthy. Since joining the Dubs, Durant has averaged 25.8 points, 7.1 rebounds, 5.4 assists and 1.5 blocks per game. He was named to three All-Star teams, three All-NBA teams and of course won two Finals MVP awards while helping the team to back-to-back NBA championships.

Thank you for all that you have done, KD, your time in a Warriors uniform will never be forgotten!
