It’s an exciting time to be a Washington Commanders fan.
Dan Snyder’s tenure in charge of the team is officially a thing of the past, with Magic Johnson and Josh Harris taking over the ever-struggling franchise.
HC Ron Rivera had already raved about how they could already feel the change in culture and how much of a difference it makes to have a staff that actually supports you and wants to make everybody comfortable.
Now, the players also had an elite guest in attendance, as NBA superstar Kevin Durant reportedly showed up to practice, with Coach Rivera stating that it meant a lot to the team (via David Aldridge).
Ron Rivera, on longtime Commanders fan Kevin Durant attending practice this morning: "For guys like KD to come back and show their support means a lot to us."

Durant is a well-known lifelong Commanders fan, and he should also be excited about the dawn of the Magic Johnson era in Maryland.
The Commanders enter the season with some questions, starting with the quarterback position.
Sam Howell looked great in his lone start last year in the season finale, but not many people were that high on him when he first came out of UNC.
Even so, they have a plethora of playmakers on both sides of the field, a veteran coach with great defensive expertise, and one of the best offensive minds in the game with Eric Bieniemy.
They will play in one of the most competitive divisions in football, but it wouldn’t be shocking to see them make the playoffs.NEXT: NBA Superstar In Attendance For 1 NFL Team Training Camp
