    Kevin Durant reveals who the runner-up was when he picked the Warriors

    When Kevin Durant hit free agency in July 2016, he met with six teams in The Hamptons:

    Warriors, Thunder, Clippers, Spurs, Celtics, Heat.

    Golden State won the sweepstakes.

    Who came in second?

    Durant was recently a guest on The Bill Simmons Podcast, and Simmons -- a life-long Celtics fan -- said that Boston was the runner-up.

    "No," Durant said. "You weren't."

    So then who was the runner-up?

    "OKC," Durant said. "It wasn't Golden State-Boston."

    Remember back in July 2016 when Doc Rivers said the Clippers "were in the Top 3 at the very end?" 

    Fun stuff.
