Kevin Durant is no longer on the Thunder, and solo Russell Westbrook has become the internet’s new favorite meme.
Kevin Durant is heading to the Warriors after spending his entire career with the Sonics/Thunder organization.
While in Oklahoma City, Durant and fellow All-Star Russell Westbrook served as one of the NBA’s longest running and most devastating one-two punches, so all eyes are on the guard to see how he reacts to the news, leading to some wonderful memes.

Whether the Warriors live up to their new super-duper team expectations remains to be seen but it will be very, very hard not to tune in for the Golden State-Oklahoma City games next season.
