read the entire article.

Is Durant really this stupid? Dude you play a ****ing childs game, get paid a zillion dollars a year to do it, enjoy the benefits of social media yourself, the effects of what communication and information have brought to your sport, and you continue to just be a spineless p&ssy all the time.

Jordan went through a TON more. The league and it's fans refused to put him alongside Magic/Bird, and the former greats, because he never won anything.

This article basically does it for me. **** Durant, **** any team he plays for, the guy is a mental midget, and shouldn't even mention Jordan in the same sentence with himself.


"That was a huge moment in my career," he says. "That's something I dreamed about overcoming as a kid. I didn't dream about motherf--kers calling me a ***** on social media because I switched teams. Because that's not criticism. That's actually you being a *****, worrying about me and my personal life."

This part, well Kevin, go work at a bank, if you don't want to be on social media. Getting paid $353,000 PER GAME, means you get to deal with the world having access to watching you play a game for your career. They don't need to respect you. They don't need to care about your well being. They don't need to care about you, period.

God this guy is such a spineless p*ssy.


"I'm a real person, dog, I don't try to be Superman or a tough guy," he says. "I know I'm not. I know I'm emotional about some stuff. But I can tell you when I get between those lines, I guarantee my teammates know they can talk to me about anything and my coaches can coach me about anything. I'm not going to take it personal."

Everywhere else is another matter. He is comfortable with you knowing that. Durant, as you may have gathered, is comfortable with you knowing just about everything. Even at the risk of you using it against him.


Then go collect garbage, or work at Subway Kevin, and everyone will leave you and your precious feelings alone.

If Kobe's Rape Sexual Assault Case happened right now, He would be forced out of the league.

Ya, finally have his own words to help with people still thinking he is that type of guy (he just doesn't want to have to lead). I think it was evident even in OKC he was lacking in that department and most of the pressure/responsibility of carrying the team fell on Westy while KD mostly searched for his own openings etc.

He isn't the leader nor best player on either end for his team and it seems to be just fine with him.

The issue is he's the one who brought that negativity and still continues to do so. Spiting OKC secretly when he was making fake social media accounts despite being asked numerous times why he left and he never gave the legitimate answer. He goes to the most stacked team and as good as KD is, you guys are always talking about how much of an offensive impact Curry has moreso than KD. 73-9 team that you joined. No other top 10 or 20 player has resulted in that sheer level of willingness to accept that type of role on a team. He brought all of this to himself. NBA has incredibly passionate fans and they just saw his move as a betrayal against the sport.

I always figured he didn't want to be a leader. He was always contempt with Russ taking the last shot, running the offense down the quarter, making the important plays. Granted, KD was the better option for us but he just didn't seem to want it. I guess we can put the talks to rest of KD's character - he is no alpha.

Full quote regarding KD not wanting to be the true leader of a franchise.

ďSteph Curry is the face of the franchise, and that helps me out, because I donít have to,Ē he said.



ďI donít want to have to be the leader. Iím not a leader. Iím bad at saying, ĎStand behind me and follow me.í



ďNo. Iím one of those guys thatís just like, ĎLetís do this **** together. Letís just work everybody together. I donít mind being on the front line with you, but letís come and do it together.í



ďThatís my way of leadership. Iím leading by example.Ē

Thus, him joining Warriors makes sense. He wanted someone to shoulder the responsibilities that he couldn't accept doing so in OKC. Going to be difficult for me to accept putting the guy in a top 20 list when he's contempt with not being the leader of a team.

I generally donít take any issue with KD or any NBA player showing their human side, given thatís what they are.....humans. But thereís a point in time where you need to quit while youíre ahead.....and bringing MJ into this was not a smart idea.

Forgive me if Iím not so willing to extend sympathies to a man whoís been coddled by the media from the jump despite not winning, all while a guy like LBJ gets hammered and nit picked to the nth degree over some of the silliest things. It amazes me to this day how he still thinks that hopping on the Warriors bandwagon should be lauded and not criticized.

KD needs to get off social media. He clearly canít handle it, and thatís despite being a champion.

The sad part is that, while he was lighting up the 73 win Warriors and they had a 3-1 lead I thought briefly that maybe this is his time to take over as the best player in the world. It was right there for him.

That was quickly followed by a collapse, choke job by Durant in game 6 and the most pathetic move in NBA history.

No one even considered the Warriors as a team for KD because we couldn't imagine just how unfair that team could actually be. Wizards, Heat, and Celtics were three teams I thought he was probably going to leave us for. No one would say a word negative about him had he did.. we would cheer him when he played the first game against us. But the Warriors? After we just watched him pee his pants against them with a 3v1 lead? C'mon, you couldn't write a more lame move. Story could have been: KD vs LeBron part II - KD wins his first NBA Championship for OKC. We would be talking about KD as a top ten player real soon. Now? I think he's disqualified. And the fact he continues being a puss about everything is laughable. Fake accounts, brings Jordan in for his sob story, says he didn't want to be a leader... yeah, top 10 ***** of the NBA.

He's the reason I no longer like Golden State. I know that's unfortunate, because they are a really special team, but I actively root against them because Kevin Durant is my least my favorite player in the NBA. This is a guy who cost his team the WCF series because he was passive and shrank. He then joined the very team that beat him and blamed his old team for why he didn't win. That's something he still does so his relationship with Russell Westbrook will probably never recover, and it probably shouldn't.

He didn't turn the Warriors into this super team when he arrived, he jumped on the bandwagon because they were already a great super team. The Warriors were 140-26 in the two previous seasons before he arrived, Steph Curry had already won two league MVP awards, the Warriors had made consecutive appearances in the NBA Finals, and they won an NBA championship already. That's why this was so much worse than Lebron's decision. Lebron would have had to have joined the Boston Celtics after the 2010 season to be similar to Durant's decision to join Golden State.

Odds are Golden State is going to win another NBA Championship this season, but I'm hoping someone in the West can take them out. There are no challengers to the Cavaliers in the East this season, Lebron will not lose to these inferior teams. Boston is good, better than we even believed, but Cleveland has all season to improve and Isaiah Thomas hasn't even returned yet. Boston will have no chance in May when they meet in the playoffs. That said, the Cavaliers will have no shot against the Warriors as is.

If either Steph or KD go down to injury that might change, but Cleveland has no chance against Golden State because they don't have the team to match up/stop them. Lebron would be the best player in the series, but the Cavalier defense can't do anything to the Warriors, it would be like practice for Golden State. Isaiah Thomas, I believe, was the worst defender in the NBA last season, not good considering he'd match up with Steph. Even if they had him guard Klay, and put JR on Steph, it wouldn't go well because Thompson would just shoot right over him. JR Smith has never risen up to the moment so why should he start now, as he's shooting .394/.288/.689 through 16 games this season. Cleveland will likely have Crowder guard Durant and Lebron would cover Green. Even though those match-ups are better for the Cavs, considering all the help everyone else will need defensively, it will be difficult to have success. Love has never been known for his defense either and hasn't remade his game like Bosh did.

All told, the Cleveland Cavaliers are not equipped to beat these cheat-code Warriors. If someone beats Golden State, it will be from the Western Conference. Oklahoma City might have a chance if they had a deeper team, as would San Antonio if they had another superstar. Since neither team have that, it's unlikely they could beat Golden State in the playoffs, I'd say they have no chance. The team that can beat Golden State in the West, therefore the only team, would be Houston. The way they shoot the 3-ball is like no other and with Harden and Paul at the guard positions, they will have great ball movement. They won't even worry about trying to stop the Warriors, just light them up offensively. So that's what I'm hoping for, the Rockets meeting the Warriors in the playoffs.

Back to Durant, he's completely childish. He said he didn't want to be a leader, and it's good he feels that way because he certainly isn't a leader. He joined a team with leaders in Steph, Draymond, and Iguodala, so all he has to do is play his game and not worry about showing leadership. If he had leadership Oklahoma City would have won the WCF in 2016. Another thing he does that think is childish is belittle the media. He called the media stupid for questioning the job status of Scott Brooks, and Brooks was fired after that season. He called the media stupid for asking about his relationship with Russ since their play styles clashed, and then he blamed Russ for losing and left OKC. I can definitively state that Kevin Durant is my least favorite player in the NBA, and I would love to see him lose. Sadly, he's on a cheat-code team so it isn't likely. He isn't better than Lebron, I even think he's #3 in the NBA behind Kawhi, and he will never even get close to Jordan.

If KD were to swallow his pride and say, "You know what, yeah, I took the easy way out." This would all go away. It's just like the steroid users. Most people dont even remember Andy Pettite getting busted because he immediately came out and admitted it, apologized and moved on. KD doesn't have to apologize but if he were to acknowledge the truth then social media would back off.

KD doesn't have to apologize but if he were to acknowledge the truth then social media would back off.

Lol owning up and telling the truth? That'll never happen. He went as far as created a fake twitter account ffs to change people's opinion of him on social media.

right, but i would guess from his perspective it would probably go a little bit like this. there is nothing inherently wrong with being a free agent and going to the team of your choosing. that means, whether you like it or not, it absolutely is 100% about you. and everyone else who keeps going on about this. do you think Kevin Durant is seeking out the media to talk about this 24/7? not a chance.

I'm not gonna go back and forth about this. Taking my opinion away, KD is the one who makes the stupid and idiotic comments. I have an opinion just like everyone else and the consensus is he's a little baby who needs to go spend his money on something fun instead of making fake social media accounts

read the entire article.

Is Durant really this stupid? Dude you play a ****ing childs game, get paid a zillion dollars a year to do it, enjoy the benefits of social media yourself, the effects of what communication and information have brought to your sport, and you continue to just be a spineless p&ssy all the time.

Jordan went through a TON more. The league and it's fans refused to put him alongside Magic/Bird, and the former greats, because he never won anything.

This article basically does it for me. **** Durant, **** any team he plays for, the guy is a mental midget, and shouldn't even mention Jordan in the same sentence with himself.



This part, well Kevin, go work at a bank, if you don't want to be on social media. Getting paid $353,000 PER GAME, means you get to deal with the world having access to watching you play a game for your career. They don't need to respect you. They don't need to care about your well being. They don't need to care about you, period.

God this guy is such a spineless p*ssy.



Then go collect garbage, or work at Subway Kevin, and everyone will leave you and your precious feelings alone.

To be fair to Jordan he was always on same level game wise on individual level or higher, It had to be silly sideline fans and bench warm players who didn't acknowledge that Jordan was and I don't care that Bird/Magic won like 8 rings in the 80's Jordan was still in the top tier easily and to me personally was better with no rings than Bird with Magic being a closer 2nd in my book

KD is going through a celebrity moment where you were beloved and couldn't do no wrong until one bad move destroyed years of adoration, nothing more nor less

its such a weak move because he was up 3-1 to the defending champs and had a actual team that was legit contenders and a GM who is about as crafty as you get when it comes to building a contender, other than that him being a actual legit free agent gives him the luxury to do as he pleases, and he has to absorb all the cupcake jabs thrown his way, which are in the heaviest droves

KD did man up, just did it in the most softest masculine fashion of basically all time

its diff. levels to man-ing up and he hit rock bottom with his version of doing it on his move to GS, the team him and Westbrook choked a 3-1 lead over, with KD taking more of the weight since he was a actual MVP winner/2nd best player to Bron by most who follows the game

KD is an historically great player. Statistically, if you compare him to just about anybody in the After Wilt Era (AWE), you have a case for him.

And he's right: Jordan was in a different situation.

People were calling Jordan the greatest before he even won a title, though after losing to the Pistons three years in a row, some question whether he had what it took to win (it seems silly now, but we've done the same thing to guys like LBJ and KD and CP3 when they lost to superior teams through no fault of their own).

Jordan's Bulls team NEVER let MVP calibre players go, and never let key free agents walk away.

They did trade Oakley, which Jordan was p!$$#d about at the time, but they had just drafted Grant to replace him, and Pippen, and needed a centre, which they got (Cartwright) and who proved VITAL (yes, Cartwright was vital) to beating the Knicks.

The Thunder had guys like Harden, who they traded away for picks, and guys like JAckson and Sefolosha, who the dumped or let walk. The Thunder were more concerned about staying under the cap or under the luxury tax threshold than they were with winning.

KD has no reason to be loyal to a team who puts $$$ ahead of W's. Jordan never had to deal with that. So yeah... in that sense, KD is right.

Neither did Jordan get criticized for 'not winning' the way KD did. And this despite the fact that KD got to the NBA finals at the age of 23 (4 years earlier than Jordan) and won a title at 28 (only a year after Jordan).

Can you imagine if after going to seven games against the Pistons in the conference finals, the Bulls traded Pippen away for a draft pick because they didn't want to pay him? You think Jordan would have won 6 titles? But KD gets that, and then people $#!t on him for not winning when his team's ownership CLEARLY demonstrated that winning was not their first priority.

You can knock KD, but he did what was best for him, and put himself in a position to achieve his goals (rings) because he was in a position where the people around him did not have the same goals ($$$).

Now he's on a team were winning counts and they'll go over the cap to do it.

Jordan has been called a giant @$$#013 by a lot of people, so there's that.

Seriously though... if you were KD, playing for a team that trade away an MVP calibre player (Harden) for draft picks, let key role players walk (Sefolosha) and then dumped a key reserve (Jackson) for basically nothing, all to avoid having to pay too much, would you stick around? That would be like the Bulls trading Pippen (HArden), BJ Armstrong (Jackson) for a couple of picks and telling Jordan to have at it the net few years. You think Jordan would have stuck around Chi-town after $#!T like that?

I would have left OKC to. THE THUNDER DID NOT PRIORITIZE WINNING!!!! As an NBA player in his prime who is an historically great player, do you think you would stay to be 'loyal' when the team has no commitment to winning?

He went to a team that was willing to go over the cap to win, and in today's NBA, that is the only way to win.

Why are you arguing for something no one denies? No one cares if he left OKC outside of OKC fans. People, meaning most fans of any team, are just upset he joined the Warriors and created an unfair imbalance that literally made the NBA season boring as hell. If it wasn't for Russ's triple double story and LeBron being in the league to make things interesting, there was no story to be had. At least this season is much improved but really, no one is upset he left. They just expected more out of KD than to join the Warriors.

Kobe forced his way to LA because he didn't want to play in Charlotte. Magic came out early only to play with Kareem.

Jordan threatened to retire if Pippen was traded because he know he couldn't hack it with TMac.

Throwing your mouthpiece during a temper tantrum doesn't make a player mentally weak. It makes them a crybaby. Even worse, jeesh.

So Jordan and Kobe are cry babies cuz they throw temper tantrums? Lebron? Jeesh, double standard much..?

That doesnít make you mentally weak! lol, so Kobe and Jordan are mentally weak because they yelled at refs..? lol, cmon

Why is lebron mentally weak? He avg a triple double in the finals 2 years ago and pretty much last season also. He's having maybe his best season right now. Hit big shot after big shot. I don't get why lebrons so mentally weak but guys like Curry who also has a track record of not always showing up in big games, who throws mouth piece at fans and refs is so mentally strong lmao! Why the double standard?

I"m not the one saying it, saddle is. He said "such" makes players mentally weak, "such" being the same **** that greats from the past have done repetitively.

But now he seems to be trying to specify something as mouthpiece specific, one of those "differences" that a hater latches on to in order to try and give his bull **** argument some type a credibility..

You gotta wonder because Iím not sure a prime Jordan nor Kobe would be the best player in the league today with a prime lebron on it also.

Whereas, with curry and these 16-1 warriors, we already know.

So to clarify, Jordan and Kobe maybe maybe not. With curry...if rings is the name of the game, then here sits the king

I don't mind a guy saying he's not a leader and doesn't want to be one. Thats not a issue for me. Long as you show up and play ur butt off which Durant usually does.

My issue with Durant is he joins a team thats already the best in the NBA, then brags about winning a title LMAO! Well no crap you did, coward. He left OKC for the team that beat him in a game 7. If he truly didn't want to play with westbrook anymore then fine. But don't be a coward and ride another teams jock. Go somewhere and be the man and put that team in title contention.

You have no problem with him not wanting to be a leader but expected him to go to a team to be ďthe manĒ? :eyebrow:

That is quite literally not true. Even if you mean that as a hyperbole... there were a lot of seven-footers back then, and most C's were 6'10 or 6'11 at least.

And we have a league were the defending champions feel comfortable playing a guy who is 6'7 (Dray) at C.

So... yeah...

Lebron a beast lol. 6'8 250, not the smallest but usually not the biggest guy on the court. Lebron made himself like this. we all seen videos of his insane workouts year round. Hardly takes off days. constantly building himself. The good big men back in the day could go weeks without facing players near their size.

MJ didn't go through what you did because he didn't take easy street and join a 73 win team. Not to mention there was no form of social media in the 1990s. Jordan would have gotten a lot of crap if Twitter, Facebook, IG, SC would have existed back in his day. If Durant wants less crap, get off social media.

No, it's the same MJ that played against a team full of HOFers. Probably more HOF than Lebron has played against in the playoffs in a single season in the east. Just saying.

They're in the HOF because they were inducted there... KG ain't in the HOF, yet. So no duh. You're making pointless arguments. And you said, "No." Actually, yes. MJ was 1-9 in the playoffs without Pippen and the Bulls only won two less games without MJ after his first retirement. So you said no = you are clearly a liar or misinformed. And MJ winning 6-0 in the Finals while LeBron is 3-5 can be attributed to LeBron being in an easier conference only to lose to an obvious better opponent. Why don't you talk about MJ's first round defeats? As far as I'm concerned, that's even worse than losing in the Finals. LeBron wouldn't make 8 NBA Finals in the West but he damn sure isn't going 3-5.. he'll most likely have a much better win ratio. If he makes it to the Finals in the West, who is challenging him in the East? I bet then you suckers would say, "His Finals opponent in the East is weak."
