Kevin Durant slams media about free agency questions

Share

Saying the NBA's players and coaches feel like "actors in a soap opera", Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr said it's all part of the modern-day league. He could move cross-country to the New York Knicks and try to awaken a sleeping giant. He might have showed that his skin is thinner than other stars - namely LeBron James.

Kevin Durant finally spoke Wednesday night, and needless to say, he wasn't happy with the media and the Knicks free-agency talk surrounding him. They are, however, expected to be very active in free agency this summer, and it's probably no coincidence that one fan pointed out Kevin Durant's prominence in their marketing materials.

You've obviously been around the noise for so long. Is it louder this year? Why do I have to talk to you. Why do I got to talk to you? I have nothing to do with the Knicks, I don't know who traded [Kristaps] Porzingis. Every time I say something, it gets twisted up and thrown out in so many publications. "I'm trying to play basketball", said Durant, according to the Athletic's Anthony Slater. And now when I don't wanna talk to y'all, it's a problem with me. "It's a dream come true, man". Grow up. Yeah, you, grow up. I play the right way, or I try to play the right way. As I mentioned, he's been so good for several years, taking care of all of his responsibilities on and off the floor here. I don't cause no problems. We all have moments of frustration, times in our life when we maybe don't feel like talking, maybe we're frustrated about something.

Kevin Durant will be a free agent this offseason but has stated openly his focus is on bringing a third consecutive title to Golden State.

"Durant was particularly incensed by a controversial article by The Athletic's Ethan Strauss which suggested many figures around the National Basketball Association believe Durant is headed to the Knicks, prompting the 6'10" superstar to call out Strauss by name.

"In terms of him just playing basketball, focusing on what happens out there on the 94 feet, being there for us as teammates, and us being there for him, that's what he can control".

The main thing that the media should do is help the fans understand the game that they just watched or about what is happening in practice that week or how the player is dealing with an injury that may have occurred. "It's grown so much that so many people want to cover it and be a part of it". Is there too much media access required?
