Kevin Durant has finally spoken out since his unfortunate injury in the 2019 NBA Finals that will have him sidelined for the entire 2019-2020 season.
The Now-Brooklyn Nets superstar recently saw down with Yahoo Sports and spoke in length about certain things, including if he blamed the Warriors for mishandling his injury.
“Durant slowly straightened up with a perplexed expression on his face.
“Hell, no. How can you blame [the Warriors]? Hell, no,” Durant told Yahoo Sports. “I heard the Warriors pressured me into getting back. Nobody never said a word to me during rehab as I was coming back. It was only me and [director of sports medicine and performance] Rick [Celebrini] working out every day. Right when the series started, I targeted Game 5. Hell, nah. It just happened. It’s basketball. S— happens. Nobody was responsible for it. It was just the game. We just need to move on from that s— because I’m going to be back playing.”
Durant also had some savage thoughts about the many Toronto Raptors fans who could be seen and heard cheering when he initially got injured before being told by players to stop.
“Durant doesn’t remember hearing the fans that night, but he has something for them to hear now.
“It will probably be the last time they will be in the Finals,” Durant told Yahoo Sports with a smirk.”
Here’s that moment:
That was a savage comment, but he wasn’t lying. The team will definitely be a shell of itself next season now that Kawhi Leonard is playing for the Los Angeles Clippers.
