The 2018-2019 season might be the final time we see Kevin Durant as a member of the Golden State Warriors.
Durant has been testy with the media all year and it showed once again after the Boston Celtics came into their place and laid the smackdown on them with ease.
The Warriors have had some bad losses recently and head coach Steve Kerr seems to think the team is lacking in the passion department.
Kevin Durant seems to disagree and it had many on the team just completely shocked with his latest interaction with the coach.
Via Yahoo Sports:
Warriors head coach Steve Kerr kicked things off, saying, “It starts with a passion, and an anger and an intensity, and it wasn’t there tonight.” The Warriors (44-20) lacked focus out of the gate, falling behind 11-0, and committed a season-high 22 turnovers.
“I thought we move off of joy?” Durant asked, knowing that’s a phrase Kerr frequently employs to characterize their style of play. “Now it’s anger? OK. I disagree with that one. I think all around, top to bottom, coaches, players, we just gotta be better.”
During that display, it was impossible not to conclude that Durant intentionally took a swipe at his coach. The individuals in the room were stunned with his comments. From the moment Durant took his seat, his demeanor was of someone prepared to go on the attack.
Another interesting part of the report is that many people seem to think Durant has already made up his mind, which is why his attitude has been testy lately.
