Kevin Durant is still basking in the glory of his first NBA championship, but that doesn’t mean the Finals MVP is taking all the credit.
The four-time scoring champ took out a full-page ad in the San Francisco Chronicle to thank virtually everyone who had a part in ending his title drought.
In the ad, Durant shouts out everyone from his teammates and the ownership to the training staff and the Warriors employees while spelling out “thank you”.

“Thank you, everyone, for making my initial season with the Warriors an incredible and exhilarating championship experience,” the message read. “Great accomplishments are never achieved alone and are best when shared with others.”
After spending his first nine seasons with the Thunder franchise, Durant signed with the Warriors last summer and helped propel them to their second title in three years. The 28-year-old reportedly will re-sign with the Warriors this summer for a less-than-max contract that will help the team re-sign some of its key free agents.
