    Kevin Durant withdraws from USA basketball team

    NBA MVP Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder withdrew Thursday from consideration for Team USA prior to the FIBA World Cup, citing "physical and mental fatigue."

    "Kevin reached out to Coach K and myself this afternoon and expressed that he is just physically and mentally drained from the NBA season and his attention to his many responsibilities," Team USA director Jerry Colangelo said in a statement. "He tried to give it a go at our recent Las Vegas training camp but felt coming out of camp that he was not prepared to fulfill the commitment he made to the team.

    "Coach K and I fully support Kevin. His well being is the most important thing to us and we support him taking the time to get ready for next season."

    He's been part of the National Team program for eight years and a big part of the success we have achieved, and we look forward to him being part of our success in the future as well."

    The USA National Team is scheduled to resume its preparations for the FIBA World Cup on Aug. 14 in Chicago.

    I'm kinda shock he did this.
    "I'm an artist.

    Dolan focusing on his music career is the best thing to happen to the Knicks in 15 years.

    PROB was told he didn't make the cut so they let him withdraw on his terms....


    joking aside, maybe OKC told him not to play.

    What he said is probably true, not to mention the Paul George thing. I'm sure he would also like to lock down that rumored 320 million dollar under armour deal.

    OKC cannot stop him from playing for USA basketball.

    I think his agent stopped him for 320 millions reasons.

    derozans game is perfect for a third option role
    running him off pin downs with his mid range game, and pick and roll ability from there, would open up a lot of holes and create open 3s for curry, harden whoever
    go home raptors, you're drunk

    I care. Basketball is my favorite sport, and I'm a proud American, so yeah. I'm bummed Durant is out. I think it's kind of Rose's team now, which is cool from a Bulls fan's perspective.
