Kevin Durant is loving the Golden feeling in Golden State, but how far did he really go to keep the core team together? 

NBA finals MVP Kevin Durant and the Golden State Warriors agreed on a two-year $53 million extension, according to ESPN Chris Haynes.

In addition to this report, Durant can opt out of his deal after his first deal. Even though he signed a two year deal, he left a little bit above 9 million dollars.

KD averaged 25.1 points, 8.3 rebounds, 4.8 assists while playing alongside three other potential hall of famers.

What about the key core? 

Durant, 28, is by far the second best player in the NBA. However his decision to stay in Golden State adds to his champion mindset. KD knows that if he stays in the state of California, he will win several rings.

The playoffs were a walk in the park for the Warriors, finishing with a playoff record of 15-1, exactly why KD signed for a lower amount of money.

KD did the right thing by taking less money to keep Andre Iguodala, Shaun Livingston and possibly to sign Nick Young, Vince Carter or Zach Randolph.
