Myles Garrett Says He Would Never Take The ‘Easy Way Out’ To Win A Title Like Kevin Durant
It’s must be open season on Kevin Durant once again.
After winning his second consecutive NBA title and Finals MVP, he couldn’t even escape jokes from his own team who take subtle shots at him for jumping on the Warriors bandwagon.
Next up is Myles Garrett who also has something to say about KD.
The Cleveland Browns defensive end stated on Thursday that he would never make a move like KD did in order to secure a title.
“You hopped onto a 73-9 team and he took the easy way out, in my mind,” Garrett said of the former Oklahoma City Thunder and current Golden State Warriors star to Ken Carman and Anthony Lima of 92.3 “The Fan.”
He also brought up LeBron bolting from Cleveland in 2010, but stated it was a completely different situation because Golden State was a championship contender with or without him.
“It’s different when LeBron left. He went to (Miami to join) Wade and Bosh, but it wasn’t something that was already guaranteed, something you already knew was going to have immediate success. (James) had to jell and work things into place.”
“If I were him, I would’ve never made a move like that in the first place,” he added. “Me, I’m too competitive to try and ride on somebody’s coattails to get a W. But for him, you might as well stay at the spot you’re at now. There’s no point in leaving since you’ve already taken that moniker where he’s been called the snake and cupcake and all that. You might as well stay and just keep on winning.”
Garrett was drafted by the Cleveland Browns last season and was a part of the squad that went 0-16, but he did post seven sacks during his rookie campaign.
