Kevin Durant says goodbye to Oracle Arena after Warriors lose NBA Finals


The lights have gone out at Oracle Arena.

Kevin Durant and the Warriors will never play another game in the historic building. After three years of calling Oracle his home, Durant will always cherish his time there. 

The day after the Warriors' 114-110 loss to the Raptors in Game 6 of the NBA Finals, Durant sent his final farewell to his former home court on Friday morning after the Raptors were crowned NBA champions. 

"I'll never forget u!" Durant wrote on Instagram with a black and white photograph of Oracle Arena.

Durant averaged 25.8 points, 7.1 rebounds and 5.4 assists per game in three seasons with the Warriors when Oracle Arena was his home court. The arena saw him win two titles and two Finals MVP awards.

Durant strained his right calf in his final game at Oracle Arena when the Warriors beat the Rockets in Game 5 of their second-round Western Conference playoff series against the Houston Rockets. He scored 22 points in his last showing. 

Now, we wait and see if Durant will be a Warrior when the team moves to the Chase Center in San Francisco.
