It might be a good idea for Kevin Durant to just stop doing interviews...he certainly doesn't seem to be helping himself every time he talks in depth about something.
His latest tell all, an interview with Jay Moehringer of the Wall Street Journal Magazine, trashes everything from Oklahoma City to Steve Kerr's motion offense to the "circus atmosphere" of the NBA.
Some of the details in today's Thunder Game Report...
Here is more of that interview from the Wall Street Journal Magazine...
On the hostile atmosphere inside The Peake his first game back as a Warrior...“Such a venomous toxic feeling when I walked into that arena. And just the organization, the trainers and equipment managers, those dudes is pissed off at me? Ain’t talking to me? I’m like, ‘Yo, this is where we going with this? Because I left a team and went to play with another team?’
“… I’ll never be attached to that city again because of that. I eventually wanted to come back to that city and be part of that community and organization, but I don’t trust nobody there. That s–t must have been fake, what they was doing. The organization, the GM, I ain’t talked to none of those people, even had a nice exchange with those people, since I left.”
On his never really fitting in with the Warriors...“I came in there wanting to be part of a group, wanting to be part of a family, and definitely felt accepted. But I’ll never be one of those guys. I didn’t get drafted there.…Steph Curry, obviously drafted there.Andre Iguodala, won the first Finals, first championship.Klay Thompson, drafted there.Draymond Green, drafted there. And the rest of the guys kind of rehabilitated their careers there. So me? S–t, how you going to rehabilitate me? What you going to teach me? How can you alter anything in my basketball life? I got an MVP already. I got scoring titles.
“As time went on, I started to realize I’m just different from the rest of the guys."
And on the NBA....“Some days I hate the circus of the NBA. Some days I hate that the players let the NBA business, the fame that comes with the business, alter their minds about the game. Sometimes I don’t like being around the executives and politics that come with it. I hate that.”
