Kevin Durant is set to join the Golden State Warriors in a move that many predict will elevate the team to a new status: unstoppable.

Not only is he one of the top players in the NBA, but he’s a fellow believer, like the Warriors’ star player Steph Curry.

Curry is a devout Christian and is very vocal about his faith, often tweeting about his faith in God.

Durant also has long been outspoken about his faith and was baptized at Hillsong Church in New York City a few years ago.

Durant grew close to Curry and fellow Golden State Warrior Andre Iguodala during the FIBA World Championships in 2010. USA Today reported they bonded while attending chapel sessions together.

The fact that all three men share a strong faith in Jesus Christ could make for an even stronger bond on the court.

Durant, 27, announced his decision Monday to sign with the Warriors in The Player’s Tribune.

ESPN reports that Durant is expected to sign a two-year $54.3 million contract. The deal will include a player option after the first year.

“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,” Durant wrote.

“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,” he said.

“With this in mind, I have decided that I am going to join the Golden State Warriors.”
