Doesn't his departure for the Brooklyn Nets clearly show he was less satisfied by the partnership than his team was?Maybe.But that line of thinking fails to consider a key question: Did Durant leave the Warriors because he didn't find what he was searching for in Golden State, or because he got everything he needed, which meant he felt compelled to pursue the next challenge?When he left the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2016, he explained his reasoning in a Players' Tribune letter:"The primary mandate I had for myself in making this decision was to have it based on the potential for my growth as a player — as that has always steered me in the right direction. How, exactly, does he aim to develop?We need to know what he wants if we're going to make a judgment about the value of what he got from his time in Golden State.Small problem: Nobody knows!According to The Athletic's Marcus Thompson II, who literally wrote the book on him, even Durant may not have the answer.
