Welcome to Seattle, Kevin Durant

Sonics fans have already been dreaming about seeing him in Green and Gold for more than a month, but now it is official: Kevin Durant is the second overall pick for your Seattle SuperSonics.

With what is tied for their highest pick ever, the Sonics have added the first freshman ever to win the Wooden, Naismith and AP Player of the Year awards and a seemingly can't-miss prospect.

I loved Stephen A. Smith's assessment on ESPN's bottom line: "Needs Kevin Durant." Who doesn't?
