The best player in the world speaks. . .
Last week, Kevin Durant was in headlines for responding to a fan telling him that LeBron James was the greatest basketball player ever. While normal people know that’s not true, KD went out of his way to call those claims ridiculous. He even said it was crazy to think that and named Michael YSL Jeffery Jordan as the GOAT.
Over the past few years, Durant’s relationship with LeBron has deteriorated, to the point where the two aren’t on speaking terms. Prior to going to the Golden State Warriors, KD idolized LeBron, as his favorite player. We’re not sure why any player over 25 would ever have anybody as their basketball idol, other than Kobe Bryant in this era, but KD payed homage.
Well, him doing to Golden State hindered Bron from getting several titles after the summer sixteen, which left some disdain on the Klutch Sports camp. Thankfully, this happened, because the greater good of the league was saved this happened. At the time, LeBron brought Draymond Green over the Klutch Sports and sabotaged the Warriors by starting an internal beef.
KD and Steph never had issues, and would’ve still stayed in Golden State, if he didn’t have a falling out with Draymond. He was the person, who solely convinced KD to pair up with the splash brothers in Golden State, as they won consecutive rings. However, last season, KD couldn’t take the sabotaging anymore, and became the only player to ever speak out against James.
Durant would go on to call LeBron toxic, essentially saying he was a snake. While he backtracked on the comments before media blew everything out of context, nobody disagreed with him around the league.
This happened after several ideas KD mentioned to the King, and stolen for the LeBron James Foundation. Nobody wants to play more in the league right now than Durant. So, next year, we expect KD to play with a different type of energy.
