With a single tweet linking to a first-person piece on The Players Tribune, Kevin Durant rocked the NBA's world.

Reaction was slow to come in on the holiday Monday, but many players were stunned by the move.

Outside the world of the NBA, Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr welcomed the Bay Area's newest star.

Bay Area rapper Lil B -- the keeper of the famed "Based God Curse" -- announced the curse on Durant would be lifted after the former Thunder star agreed to sign with the Warriors, Lil B's favorite team.
