Kevin Durant finally spoke up about the vigorous conversation surrounding his impending free agency and the possibility that he might end up with the New York Knicks, taking dead aim at the way in which the media has covered what would be one of the biggest National Basketball Association stories of the year. However, a recent article written by Ethan Strauss of The Athletic implied that Durant was seeking validation as the best National Basketball Association player, period. I don't know who traded (Kristaps) Porzingis.
"I play the right way, I try and play the right way, I try and be the best player I can be".
Perhaps Durant's ire stems from the New York Knicks trading Kirstaps Porzingis in a move that was created to clear cap space. That got nothing to do with me.
When pressed further, he told reporters: "Y'all come here every day, ask me about free agency, talk to my team-mates, talk to my coaches, rile up the fans about it".
He just give his whole opinion on stuff and make it seem like it coming from me. The truth about sports in general, and the National Basketball Association in particular, is part of the fascination fans have with the game is about player movement and especially elite players being on the move and shifting the balance of power in the league. "Come on man. Grow up". Just walk in here, survey and then write something like that, and then now y'all piling on me because I don't want to talk about that. I don't cause no problems. And I think he's doing a great job of that. Why do I got to talk to you? It's best for Durant to recognize he is in the most ideal situation for a player of his skillset.
"Every time I say something it's getting twisted up and thrown out and in so many different publications, trying to tear me down with my words that I say". So, if I don't say nothing, it's a problem.
"I just want to play ball".
