Now that Kevin Durant has moved on to play the next couple of years with the Brooklyn Nets, there has been more and more information coming out as to what was going on while he was there that may have led to his departure.
On Wednesday morning, ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith took to ‘First Take’ and revealed part of the reason why Durant left in free agency.
Durant “wasn’t too fond” of Warriors head coach Steve Kerr, according to Smith.
“One of the other things that hasn’t been talked about: Kevin Durant did not have the greatest relationship with Steve Kerr. He wasn’t too fond of Steve Kerr at all…The team was a team. Kevin Durant was a part of the team, but was his own man, very independent” Smith said on Wednesday.
There have been reports that Durant was not too happy with the Warriors medical staff after he got injured in the NBA Finals after suffering an injury in the second round against the Houston Rockets.
Kerr seems like one of those guys who is very much likable, but just maybe Kevin Durant didn’t see it that way on and off the court.
Durant will miss the full 2019-20 season as he recovers from a ruptured Achilles.
