Kevin Durant And The Ugly Side Of A League Obsessed With Transactions

Kevin Durant And The Ugly Side Of A League Obsessed With Transactions Kevin Durant And The Ugly Side Of A League Obsessed With Transactions

"You rile up the fans about it. Let us play basketball".

"Honestly, I think it's him not being able to control his own voice", Curry said. Just walk in here, survey and then write something like that, and then now y'all piling on me because I don't want to talk about that.

There has been nonstop speculation about what's in the future for Durant, and if he'll be sticking with the Warriors for the long haul. I come in here and go to work everyday, and I don't cause no problems.

Even if you hate Durant, you have to give him props here for his honesty.

Durant hadn't spoken to beat writers since before the New York Knicks traded away Kristaps Porzingis last week, thus clearing out the cap space to chase him and another free agent this summer.

The former MVP lashed out at what he believes to be unfair commentary from the media about his impending free agency, focusing in on Ethan Strauss of The Athletic specifically for a recent piece detailing how the Warriors are growing to believe he's leaving for NY this summer.

Asked to comment on Golden State's form following their 141-102 win, Durant abruptly walked out of the press conference. "I didn't see any of that coming what happened last night". All that other stuff, I wouldn't call it a distraction, but from his standpoint, frustrating. That's what he can control, and I think he's doing a great job of that.

Durant won't need to worry about his words being twisted this time around, as this hissy fit is already going viral, and it's going to be played in full, so at least that shouldn't be a concern for the 30-year-old making $31.5 million this season to play for the best basketball team on the planet.

Patrick also warned Durant that he must treat the media with more respect.

"Why do I gotta talk to you?"

With a championship trophy in one hand and Finals MVP trophy in the other, it's no wonder that Durant feels this way.

"He is not recognised as the best player in the game but he doesn't want to go and help LeBron".
