Warriors Star Kevin Durant Rips Into The Media

Warriors Star Kevin Durant Rips Into The Media

Kerr told 95.7 The Game that he has yet to speak to Durant as the Warriors didn't practice on Thursday and didn't even watch the Durant presser until he arrived home on Wednesday night.

Durant, who has not spoken to the media since the Porzingis trade, broke his silence on Wednesday following Golden State's rout of San Antonio. We want to see that KD every day. The truth about sports in general, and the National Basketball Association in particular, is part of the fascination fans have with the game is about player movement and especially elite players being on the move and shifting the balance of power in the league. "I'm trying to play basketball". And now when I don't want to talk to y'all, that's a problem on me. "Come on man. Grow up".

For the first time in the past nine days, Durant had a press conference.

The conversation regarding the best active player in the National Basketball Association usually revolves around a handful of players. The Knicks would probably target Durant and another star player this summer, and Durant has stayed mum since the transaction last week.

But Kerr is sure he'll talk with Durant soon. "I just ain't feel like it".

All-Star J.T. Realmuto traded from Marlins to Philadelphia for 3 players

Durant has always shown a thin skin when it comes to things like this.

The All-Star is entering the ninth day of the standoff, as chronicled by The Athletic in a story published Tuesday outlining where Durant stands and the presumption he will not return to the Warriors for another season.

Kevin Durant will be a free agent this offseason but has stated openly his focus is on bringing a third consecutive title to Golden State. All that other stuff, I wouldn't call it a distraction, but from his standpoint, frustrating. "What he can't control is BS that happens in the media or people making the decision for him or all this other stuff".

What also seemed to have triggered Durant's emotions was a column written by the Bay Area News Group's Dieter Kurtenbach, in which Durant's future with the Knicks was discussed. The media will be the media, and Durant must understand that's less likely to change. Will it help me do my job better... "I didn't feel like talking".
