Kevin Durant switched from the Oklahoma City Thunder to the Golden State Warriors for the 2016-17 NBA season. I was wondering why he moved and would really like to know more about it. Why couldn't he just stay on the Thunder?

All we can really tell you here is what Durant himself said about the move. Quoting from this ESPN article, Durant said:

"The primary mandate I had for myself in making this decision was to have it based on the potential for my growth as a player - as that has always steered me in the right direction, but I am also at a point in my life where it is of equal importance to find an opportunity that encourages my evolution as a man: moving out of my comfort zone to a new city and community which offers the greatest potential for my contribution and personal growth. With this in mind, I have decided that I am going to join the Golden State Warriors."

Reading between the lines, I would interpret "my growth as a player" as "chance to win a championship".
