Kevin Durant had Twitter abuzz on Monday as NBA fans set up Players' Tribune notifications and read into every tiny bit of speculation before his big announcement.
Then, at 11:38am EST, Durant tweeted out the article that revealed he is leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder and signing with the Golden State Warriors.
The news prompted a shocked reaction from many of Durant's fellow NBA players, including future team-mate Andre Iguodala.
