NBA: This terrible revelation about Kevin Durant
For several weeks now, Kevin Durant has been leading the news in the NBA. The former MVP would indeed have asked for his Brooklyn Nets trade. KD would have been tired of the recent failures of his franchise in the playoffs. The latest: the 4-0 elimination in the conference semi-finals against the Boston Celtics. Besides, one of his former teammates has just made an incredible revelation about the state of mind of Kevin Durant during this series…
Kevin Durant’s adventure in Brooklyn Nets turns sour. In 2019, the superstar shocked the whole NBA by joining the Brooklyn Nets next to Kyrie Irving. The mission was clear: win the title. And the two players were even joined in 2021 by the former MVP of the Houston RocketsJames Harden ! Winning the title was no longer an objective, but an obligation. And it was hard not to make Brooklyn Nets the huge favorite to the final victory. And yet, the New York franchise project is certainly the biggest fiasco in the history of the NBA. The net won’t even have played a conference final! Worse, last year, they qualified thanks to the Play-In, only to be swept away in the semi-finals by the Boston Celtics 4-0.

Kevin Durant wants to slam the door
And the departure of James Harden in the middle of the season, the controversies linked to Kyrie Irving and the repeated failures of Brooklyn Nets in the playoffs were too much for Kevin Durant. More than a month ago, number 7 would have asked for his trade in the New York franchise! A real bomb that shook the NBA. Since then the name of During is at the heart of all the rumours. The former playerOKAY favored two destinations: the Phoenix Suns and the Miami Heat. Only the mad demands of net have greatly cooled these tracks. Now the hottest rumor is a trade to the Boston Celtics. The It’s have even already submitted an offer with Jaylen Brown, Derrick White and a draft pick. Offer refused by net who would like Marcus Smart is included in the package. See Kevin Durant will stay brooklyn would not be a discarded scenario either.
Kevin Durant Gets Destroyed
But this choice to want to leave brooklyn is heavily criticized. It is especially the mentality of the player who is singled out. In effect, Kevin Durant was always willing to give up his franchise to join another team with a greater chance of winning the title. When he was at OKAY for example, he had no hesitation in leaving the franchise of his debut to join the best team in the NBA, them Golden State Warriors. Problem, he had joined them just after losing against them in the conference final with OKAY ! After that, K.D. had won two trophies alongside Stephen CurryKlay Thompson and Draymond Green. Charles Barkley had for example denounced the fact that he did not have the soul of a leader and that he had always needed to rely on better players to win titles. Then Dominique Wilkins had destroyed the winger by lamenting his state of mind: “I’m old school. At some point, players will have to realize that no matter what trials and hard times you go through, you have to hang in there and hold on.”. Wilkins then criticized the annoying habit that would have Kevin Durant to give up when the going gets tough. And a recent statement is not going to prove him wrong…
“We are going to lose anyway”
Indeed, the ex-teammate of Kevin Durant to net, mike jameshas just made a surprising revelation about him: “When they (the Nets) started to suck, I called him and asked him to come see me play in the playoffs. He replied “no chance of me coming to your playoff game”. And then a week later, he called me before the Euroleague playoffs started, he called me back and said, “Yeah, actually I’ll be there, we’re going to lose anyway”. Thus, right in the middle of the series opposing brooklyn at Boston, Kevin Durant had already given up on making the conference finals, even though his franchise still technically had a chance. A new declaration, which is not likely to restore its reputation…
