When we asked for his transfer at the beginning of the summer, and we gave an ultimatum to his leaders to separate from the coach and the GM, it is logical to be questioned on the subject. Not for Kevin Durant… Because he no longer wants to leave the Nets and because he explained himself to Steve Nash, the Nets winger would like the press to move on, and stop asking him the same questions.
“Can we move on to something else at some point? » he asked on Friday. “I mean, I know it’s an interesting story. I know it took up most of the offseason and it sells paper. I am aware of it. But I haven’t missed any matches. I haven’t missed any workouts. I’m still there. So I hope we can move on. »
What does he have to say about his desire to see Steve Nash leave? ” A lot of things were wrong continues KD. ” But I don’t want to talk about it now. We don’t have much time right now. »
If we don’t have time to talk about it in preseason, we imagine that it will be even more difficult during the season…
“This environment has been good for me for the past two years, although I had some doubts”
On the other hand, Kevin Durant wants to talk about this meeting at the end of August on the side of Los Angeles with Steve Nash therefore, but also his GM Sean Marks and the owner Joe Tsai. It was after this meeting that he decided to backtrack and abandon his desire to leave.
” I was pissed off and like a family they understood I was pissed off says Kevin Durant. ” They were okay with some things, so we talked about it. We expressed all our concerns and ways to improve things and everything worked out. I’m happy to be here now. I felt like we had a good team. It’s a place I said I wanted to be, and we’re starting to put something in place to be a strong team. So, to be honest, I thought that was still a good option, too. I didn’t want that to happen when we were playing. I still love my teammates, I love playing at Barclays Center. So I thought it would be an easy decision to come back and play, because I love basketball. This environment has been good for me for the past two years, although I had some doubts. But overall, thinking about it, I still like coming here and working. That’s what I estimated. »
