    Bill Bradley: 'I don't understand' Durant joining Warriors

    Add Hall of Famer Bill Bradley to the list of people that don't like Kevin Durant's decision to leave the Thunder for the Warriors.

    The 10-year NBA veteran voiced his displeasure in an interview Friday on SiriusXM NBA Radio.

    Asked if he could envision himself or star players from the 1960's or 1970's leaving their teams, and what he thought of the current NBA "super teams," Bradley offered this:

    "I think they are artificial creations of our current economic situations in basketball. I don't understand Kevin Durant going to Golden State. I don't know how that's going to work, but it's going to be interesting to see," Bradley said.

    Bradley explained why he never considered leaving the Knicks, who he played for from 1967 to 1977.

    "I'm kind of biased. I played 10 years with one team. It was the city, the fans that you were loyal to. It was the teammates you played with, you were like family. We had our 40th anniversary of the 1973 team in 2013, and the guys around the room were like family," Bradley said.

    After nine seasons with the Seattle/Oklahoma City franchise, Durant announced on July 4 that he would be joining the Warriors.

    Durant and the Warriors tip off the regular season on Tuesday, October 25 at home against the Spurs.
