While the landscape of the NBA has been in complete shock about Anthony Davis requesting a trade from the New Orleans Pelicans — Kevin Durant doesn’t think it’s that big of a deal.
The Golden State Warriors superstar was asked about his thoughts on the situation and he put the entire thing into perspective, all while taking a shot at President Donald Trump and the Government shutdown.
“It’s definitely a topic of conversation. All NBA news is,” Durant told reporters at Monday’s practice, per 95.7 The Game. “I mean it’s not that serious. So it’s like, why not talk about it? So AD wanting to play basketball somewhere else, it’s not like the president shutting down the government, it’s just basketball.”
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, Durant was referring to President Trump’s decision to shutdown the Government in order to secure money for a Wall to stop illegal immigrants from entering the country. That shutdown came to an end after 35 days on Friday.
