Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

Kevin Durant is one of the best players in the entire NBA. Overall, some fans would say that he is the best player in the league right now. However, there are a plethora of people who believe this is just a step too far. Although, he should definitely earn top-five consideration when you think about everything he does for his teams. Durant is simply one of the best players ever, and now that he is on the Phoenix Suns, he turns them into real contenders.

Unfortunately for the Suns, he won't be able to play a game for them until after the All-Star break. This is due to the fact that he is nursing an injury right now. He has had this injury since before the Nets traded him. That said, the Suns knew what they were getting when they acquired KD. After all, they still have Devin Booker and Chris Paul, which is enough for them to get by over this upcoming stretch. Once the playoffs hit, then the Suns will truly shine as a team.

Kevin Durant Is Ready

While Durant doesn't have an exact timeline for his return, that has not stopped the Suns from filming some content with their new star. In the video clip up above, Durant can be found wearing his brand-new Suns jersey. Overall, he looks pretty great in the jersey, and we're sure fans are very excited to see him in those colors. In fact, Durant is having his introductory press conference today, which will be a whole lot of fun. Although there might be some difficult questions sent KD's way, we're sure we will get some insight into his departure from Brooklyn.

As it stands, it is a very good time to be a fan of the Phoenix Suns. They are the current favorites to win it all, and if they make it happen, then that fanbase will finally get what they've wanted for years. Arizona sports teams have had a hard time winning titles, and we're sure those fans would appreciate at least one. Let us know what you think of seeing KD in a Suns jersey, in the comments down below.
