Kevin Durant rips media's coverage of his pending free agency

  • Kevin Durant

Warriors star Kevin Durant absolutely shredded the media Wednesday night, and the rant is absolutely outstanding.

"I have nothing to do with the Knicks", Durant said. I have nothing to do with the Knicks, I don't know who traded [Kristaps] Porzingis. "I get it. At the same time, I wish it was more about what we do on the court, but I understand this is also entertainment to a lot of people". They chose to play basketball for the game - not to sit there and entertain theories about the future. Durant told reporters to "grow up" and basically leave him alone and let him play basketball. That's all I'm saying. "And now when I don't want to talk to y'all, it's a problem with me". "It's a dream come true, man". Grow up. Yeah, you [looking at Strauss] - grow up. I come in here and go to work everyday, and I don't cause no problems.

"There's only a select few that have the experiences that he has, that I have, that other guys in the league have, where anything you say, anything you do, body language, the look on your face, all that stuff is picked apart left and right", Curry said. I try to be the best player I can be every possession.

"Now that I don't want to talk [to the media] there's a problem with me". "I don't think about that type of stuff".

Jaguar Land Rover posts biggest quarterly loss of £3.4bn
Revenues fell by £100m to £6.2bn as vehicle sales fell to 144,602 for the quarter, nearly 10,000 less than the previous year. JLR parent Tata Motors expects costs from the voluntary redundancy program to be recognized in the quarter ending in March.

"I just don't trust none of y'all", Durant said. He might have showed that his skin is thinner than other stars - namely LeBron James. Because that's just news every day, all day. I play the right way. Durant already draws tons of criticism online for absconding to the Golden State Warriors as a free agent, so Kanell and Botkin discuss whether or not Durant is treated fairly.

"Ain't nobody can recruit me no more", Durant said late previous year. Durant is likely to opt out of the final year of his contract after the current season. That's what he can control, and I think he's doing a great job of that. "Again, the way that he plays basketball and the way he is a teammate, that's all we're anxious about, and I think he's doing a great job of that".

The Athletic is not the only outlet to link Durant to the Knicks.

The NBA was largely left unaware of Durant's mounting situation with the media until Tuesday. He believes Durant should be given a "pass" for what he had to say on Wednesday. Will it help me do my job better...
