Watch: NBA Commissioner Adam Silver Has Words for Kevin Durant Signing With the Warriors

Does he think a super team is good for the league?

Published July 13th

Kevin Durant certainly stacked the deck last week, joining a Golden State Warriors team that went an NBA-best 73-9 and has three fellow All-Stars in two-time MVP Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.

But not everyone is a fan of the move. After Hall of Famers Charles Barkley, Larry Bird and Reggie Miller blasted Durant for seemingly taking an easier road, NBA commissioner Adam Silver is saying that KD signing with the Warriors to build a super team is bad for the league.

Having four All-Stars on one squad, which was a game away from winning back-to-back NBA titles, isn't ideal for the rest of the league — Silver's right.

But try telling that to Dub Nation and future free agents, who will do anything to form that super squad and chase a ring.
