Kevin Durant ended his free agency Monday and announced he will play for the Golden State Warriors this upcoming season.

"This has been by far the most challenging few weeks in my professional life," Durant wrote on ThePlayersTribute.com. "I understood cognitively that I was facing a crossroads in my evolution as a player and as a man, and that it came with exceptionally difficult choices. What I didn’t truly understand, however, was the range of emotions I would feel during this process."

ESPN reported that Durant agreed to a two-year, $54 million deal with a player option after the first season.

From 2007 to 2016, Durant played for the Oklahoma City Thunder, formerly the Seattle SuperSonics. Durant, a small forward, has won the NBA MVP Award, Rookie of the Year Award and was a seven time NBA All-Star. He also received a gold medal at the 2012 Summer Olympic games as part of the champion USA men's basketball team.

The Warriors -- who were one game shy of the 2016 NBA Championship Title -- were a force to be reckoned with before. With the addition of KD, they could be unstoppable.

The Internet is going insane.
