"Warren. They have the young guys that they brought up Kessler Edwards and those sorts of dudes. There's depth on the roster. And if everybody could just get their heads around, we show up and we play ball together, that's a team that I think would be in the mix for maybe three or four scenes in the east. I still think the Celtics and the blocks are like a pretty clear one and two above everybody else. But if you get that team on the court for the better part of an actual season, there's no reason it shouldn't be an elite offense with at least a good enough defense depending on what Simmons can do to elevate it. And then from there on, it's like you put yourself in a short series with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving against pretty much any defense, I guess with the exception of that Celtics defense that we just saw. You feel pretty good about your chances. So now the issue though is like, do you get to a point where is it just too much water over the dam and too many cracks for you to put it all back together? And maybe that's the case. Maybe we just reached a point where between Durant's request and all the issues that kairi's had and everything else, it's just too much to put back together. That would be a real shame because I continue to believe that if you put that team on the court, they'd be pretty damn fun to watch. Yeah, I think so too. I'm of the belief and look, we all know that Ben Simmons has his limitations. But Ben Simmons does a lot of things really well. He's an excellent rebounder and excellent defender who can switch one through 5, give people a lot of problems. He runs the break well. He's a good passer. Absent the shooting component, he's pretty good, and being on a team with KD and Kyrie, where he wouldn't have to be the one or the one a, he could be the three in terms of options. Now all of a sudden I really like Ben Simmons as a player and you let the other guys do the heavy lifting offensively and all of a sudden who knows what Brooklyn could be. I'm with you that probably the top tier of the Eastern Conference remains Boston and Milwaukee and then you've got that second tier of the sixers in the heat, but I would probably slot the nuts into that tier. If you could be guaranteed of bringing everybody together, stitching humpty dumpty back together, I'm not sure that they can actually pull that off though because in addition to all this KD stuff, you do still have the Kyrie would they potentially move him as well.

"That certainly at the very least ratchets up the pressure to get something done. I thought it was interesting, Howard, at the bottom of that story in the athletic, was just a simple paragraph that says Durant has grown close with Boston coach email DOCA in recent years. It's kind of out of nowhere in this story after you don't spend a year with Durant as assistant in Brooklyn and later with Team USA for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. I don't know if you made anything of that. I thought it was interesting because Boston is among the teams that is made an offer for Kevin Durant. Now you have a note at the bottom of the story, relaying that Kevin Durant as a good relationship with emea DOCA. That I made note of that hour. That to me wasn't a throwaway paragraph. No, probably not. There are no throwaway lines in sports media in 2022. Everything it probably means something, everything was, you know, whispered for a purpose. I mean, is that a direct line to, hey, would he really wants us to trade to the Celtics? I mean, the Celtics weren't on his reported list. They're the top of his list was supposed to be Phoenix and Miami. It has that list expanded. We haven't heard that. Maybe it's maybe that's what that's about, or maybe it's just that he would have liked to have seen eme O DOCA supplant Steve Nash in Brooklyn and it's just part of the overall grievance with the organization. Yeah, maybe. I read it as trade me to Boston. That's kind of how I read it. And look, I had one executive who's not involved in the Durant sweepstakes. Do you say to me, if the nets don't have the stomach to bring him to training camp, they should find a way to do a deal with Boston because they're not going to get a better player in a deal than jaylen Brown. Jaylen Brown all star 25 years old still improving as a player has a chance to be a multi time all star in this league. I know they want Marcus smart and whatever other pounds of flesh they want to take from the south, but boss is not Boston wasn't giving up a lot before they certainly aren't giving up a lot now, not in the wake of this report. So I think when you say things haven't changed, where I agree with you is that we're not going to see the nets turn around tomorrow and make a deal. It's just not going to happen. They're going to play this thing out into late August into early September and probably reevaluate where they are once they get to that point. But if the offers don't improve, if there isn't a pathway to get, say, Donovan Mitchell or somebody like that, bam adebayo or somebody like that. A Boston deal makes the most sense. The selfish will give you draft picks. They'll give you jaylen Brown. It's not the Anthony Davis deal that the nets are clearly hoping to get, but it might be the best deal out there for them.

" durant" Discussed on The Garden Report | Boston Celtics Post Game Show from TD Garden
"And I think the outcome would be multiple legit shots at a championship with Durant, at least two. And if you win one or you win two, it's a smashing success. If he gets hurt or declines a little bit, it's a massive failure, but it doesn't make it the wrong move. It's about the value here, right? So I'm looking at and saying, what's good value for Duran? You know, I don't care about picks, so I'm putting the pics on the table. Smart, I think everybody's giving up smart for Durant. And brown's a tough pill to swallow, but that's what gives you the edge over everybody else. So it's Brown, smart, picks, I'm doing it. If it's Brown, smart, rob, that's probably too much. I'm just looking at like hedging the value of what's going to significantly improve your championship. Chance here, because again, we kick this around last week, John. I love the season they just had. It was one of the most exciting Celtic seasons ever, and I can always take value in that. But man, the way the finals, I just watched the finals again the other day. That was tough. The way it ended, how falling short there, the uncertainty of whether or not you're going to get back, they had a really good chance saying, if you had to rant, closing game four, you're probably hanging a banner this fall. You know? Yeah, maybe and again, it's hard to say exactly how that goes. I do question again from a style perspective. You know, one of whether something you want to watch and two, whether it's something that's effective here, I think this is a team where you want to see more ball movement. I think you're less likely to get that with another ball dominant player like Kevin Durant. And so I think that affects you. And again, we have to be honest here. Malcolm Brogdon also likes to have the ball in his hands a lot, and I'm not saying he's going to be the impediment to what Kevin Durant trade, but he's a guy who dribbles a lot, takes it to the whole, creates his shots. So now you're going to start to get a lot of that. If you bring in a Durant and I don't love, I don't love the fit with him and Tatum. It's two guys that do the same thing.

"So naturally, you call and you check and the conversation starts with Durant and the conversation might move to, like I said, I get from a business perspective why you might consider doing that. But it doesn't mean a hard offer was made. It doesn't mean it's anything more than chatter. It doesn't mean it's even necessarily real. It doesn't. The way they're appointed is that the Celtics offered bran. So unless the nets are just like a erroneously thrown that out there, they hype up interests and who knows they could be marks isn't a bad place right now. If this goes wrong for him, his career isn't executives over. So he has to do something extreme like that to try to drum up interest to do whatever he can to get out of this good and setting a new price like this of brown smart and the picks is the best way to do that. Because his first attempt at towns I keep calling him Bennett. Edwards and pecks was so ridiculous that everyone's like, all right, yeah, we're gonna give you that. This seems a little more believable here. But again, if they just picked up the phone and we're tossing around names and doing what GMs do, and he turned that into the Celtics offered Brown, man. Everybody does that all the time. You know? To this degree? Yeah, I think it's pretty common. Because you're trying to show that they're in it. And they're real. But they'd have to be in an array of to say that. So again, I think the Celtics have legitimate interest in this. So I hope couldn't you. I mean, Durant Tatum, that is a one, two punch that would just be epic. And I hate that. I hate it. And the last thing I want is Durant and Tatum's ear. I hate it. I don't know. You don't want a guy flanking Tatum with a little edge. We always complain that Tatum doesn't stand up to guys. If you want to watch a fine one, Kate, like, look, your typical Boston fan or anybody out of market. This is my strictly emotional case against Kevin Durant. You know, you guys don't like Kevin Durant. I've said this on a show before. Like, you made fun of him for going to Golden State and taking the easy way out. You trashed the super team when he went over there with Kyrie. You got mad that they conspired and broke up what the Celtics were trying to go with here. He's a diva. He's got thin skin. He's always on social media. You know, anytime anybody criticizes him, he's frigging sparring with the owner of this company. We don't like him. You don't like him. You don't want a roof for him. You want to root again in 2016 when they sent for 80 and Isaiah. I get it. You hadn't gotten anything. You haven't gotten people to come here. You are going to take your best, put your best shot at any major free agent. Things have changed in Boston. Free

"He's been in that system before when he came there before he didn't buck this system. And Kevin Durant doesn't seem like he wants to, you know, he's going to lead when he needs to, but he understands part of that still Steph to you. So if I'm Steph Curry and I got an opportunity to come out and get him after what they did with him, that's a no brainer. I take that all day. It's a big girl's love that. The last shot. So far, give me a chance to talk and wipe my mouth. All right, so know that to throw the Cedric Maxwell podcast. I ain't built a bone. I'm joined by Cedric Maxwell,

"To, you know, the best offer that could be on the table. I'm looking at the potential candidates. You know, Memphis could probably make a pretty good offer, but Memphis is not gonna throw jaren Jackson or John morant into that deal. And even if it was Jackson Jackson gets hurt a lot to what he's heard now, he's gonna be on foreseen. He's out with a foot injury. And look, Desmond baines a nice player, but that's not a Jalen Brown level guy. Golden State, we've already ruled out Dallas doesn't have anybody. Utah, like, you know, he's not going to Utah. Denver, Denver, I guess maybe if they wanted to throw Porter junior and a whole bunch of guys into that mix, but I don't see that either. Minnesota, no New Orleans. No. Let's stop on New Orleans for a second. All right. New Orleans? All right, now I have all kinds of concerns about Zion. And if I'm David Griffin and the pelicans, I'd be really, really nervous about giving Zion this max extension. If I'm any team acquiring Zion anytime soon, I'm really, really concerned about him and his health and his longevity. But he is a still very young and incredibly talented and explosive player who if he stays healthy can change your team single handedly, right? You have to at least like, I don't know whether Kevin Durant's willing to go to New Orleans, but they have Zion. They have Brandon Ingram. They have CJ McCollum. They have a bunch of really good young interesting players. They have a bunch of the Lakers picks and swaps still from the Anthony Davis trade. That is a time. Who's the player going out? Who's the player going out though? You mentioned all the guys they have down there. Who's going out in a Durant trade? You're starting with Zion. You're asking for Zion first. Oh, I do. We're not deep into hypothetical territory. But yeah, I do Zion for the nets. Well, listen to the table. I just don't see why Durant would want to go if that's because CJ McCollum plus Brandon Ingram plus Kevin Durant plus other role players is a pretty good team. And for Jones much as anyone, but I'm not sure that all right, but listen, the nets are for the next side of it. Certainly you're getting a young potential superstar. I want to say potential and not actual because Zion, he hasn't finished a season yet. So I don't want to assume too much, but we know what the talent level is. If you can get Zion and all of the Lakers picks that the pelicans still own, that's a pretty good starting point, and you're probably going to get and you're going to get several of the other players as well. Maybe a herb Jones may be some of the other young guys. You're looking at it though from and look, I get what you're looking at it from. But from the net's perspective, why would the pelicans do that?.

"And I went through them and I found letters between doctor rant and his wife Hannah. During this time period, while he was building a transcontinental and, you know, she was very typical woman of her time. I mean, I give her a lot of credit because it must have taken a lot of courage to live alone with your two children, but they were completely dependent on him. And there was letters where she, you know, she called him pet and she said, I'm so sorry, I spent that money, you know, she was really beholden to him. He was holding all the purse strings. And they lived a pretty good lifestyle. I mean, they traveled. I tracked all the places, they lived, and they lived in Paris, and they lived in, you know, William went to Norway. They went to dwarf gastein and took in the spot and they really did a lot of travel William oldest son his only son went and big game hunting in Egypt twice. So I mean, he really lavished them and brought them up the best possible lifestyle that he could. They Hannah did not have anything to do though with the transcontinental and those episodes you're talking about where she's really involved. And she's also American, they're not very they're not authentic in that sense. Okay, was she there at all? Because we do see her there, but of course the show doesn't really leave hell on wheels that much. Did not get that impression from reading through letters that she ever visited him out west. And his son never did die as a matter of fact, the behind me is his son. And the books that I wrote follow the Durant family post transcontinental and his son lives to ripe old age of 84. So yeah, he doesn't die of cholera, but 20 because I don't know who the researchers were and you know, they might not have had a lot of material to work with for the family. There's not much out there about Hannah unless she did a lot of digging..

" durant" Discussed on Open Floor: SI's NBA Show
"This team is a 7 seed for a reason. And going into the series, there was a lot of a lot of respect for Kevin Durant, of course. But he's going up against the best defense in the league, a defense that is basically constructed to there's never been a defense that could successfully shut him down. But as good of a defense as he's ever faced in his life, Tatum is the best player in the series easily and just dominating the one on one matchup guarding Durant. As the primary defender in every game. So in terms of his legacy, this will be if they do lose the recording this on a Monday afternoon. If the nets do lose if they're swept, this will be the second first round series to ran has ever lost. He's a great, great, great, great player. I don't think this impacts too much of how we should view him. I think that how the nets have been coached, how the nets have been constructed, their decisions as an organization are much more emblematic of their struggles in this series. And so that's where I'll leave that. I think the way that Doran has been defended has been magnificent and sure, he could hit more shots, but there's a lot of issues going on in Brooklyn. Yeah, so first of all, I'm with you. I think his legacy is, I think his legacy is he's the best scorer ever. And I think he's undeniably like a top ten talent ever. I think kind of where the resume or accomplishments ultimately end up might be a little bit up for debate. I think if we want to go there, I think in a vacuum, most of us would say he's a better player than Steph Curry, but I think Steph is going to finish his career and rightfully so as the more accomplished player..

The Confusion Behind the NYC COVID Policy
"Kevin Durant, talking about the strange COVID policies of the mayor of New York. One of their players, his name is Kyrie Irving, he's not been vaccinated, but because of the law in New York, he can not play. In New York. On the road, however, he can play. Now get this, a visiting opponent in Brooklyn in the same stadium where Kyrie Irving can not play can play even if that player has not been vaccinated. Let me see if I can get this straight. Kyrie Irving has not been vaccinated, he's a member of the Brooklyn Nets. Because of the law in New York, he can not play with his team, but on the road he can play. Even though one would think on the road, he's jeopardizing health of his teammate and his opponents just as he would be jeopardizing the health of his teammates and opponents in Brooklyn, if he were to play, not being vaccinated. However, an opposing player who's not been vaccinated can come to the Brooklyn Nets stadium, where Kyrie Irving can not play because he's not been vaccinated, even though that player has not been unvaccinated, and that player can play.
" durant" Discussed on The Garden Report | Boston Celtics Post Game Show from TD Garden
"He went to Brooklyn and within a year, everyone's like, oh man, he's calling out the kids right out of the gate, you know? And then all of this stuff, and then all of a sudden he just leaves in the middle of a season because he felt like taking a break. And this stuff going on this year. He's about that. He's just in the butt. And it's always the outside, right? It's never them. It's never the whole hearted scenario. And this is on Durant, Irving, harden himself, Nash. They all sat there and were like, we don't hear all this noise. Wait, what reports? Then all of a sudden days later, and they said, right before the deadline, the vino trade. And the trade happens. And so all of a sudden, it's like, oh, let's just, I just keep walking here and keep moving forward and everything's fine. Even though we just played this game for two weeks that there wasn't a fiasco inside the net locker room that led to one of the most shocking trades of all time. So there's always, and it's on every single person on this team. You hear it from Durant. You hear it from the coach. You hear from Kyrie certainly. Always just blaming the outside. Oh, it's a media. Oh, it's all the talk. It's this and that. And it's never them. Even though through two years now, the super team hasn't come close. And they play the Durant folk game, even email says it. I always drive me crazy when email says, oh, I've Durant's foot wasn't on the line. It's excuse after excuse after excuse. And it's funny because anyone gonna take accountability for anything. It's like, I think they think in their minds that they didn't lose the box. That it was just like some flukey thing and they just lost because it was close, man. By Giannis, we thought Giannis blew his knee apart. The fact that they had that upper hand there, you know, in a series because Giannis didn't look like he'd be right and then he came back. He was a frigging hero. So, you know, that one was close. That was really close. That could have gone either way there. You don't know what happens after that. But, you know, whatever. You lost. It's everything counts, you know? Stepping on the line counts. It's just, you know? I just think it's funny because it's quite literally a line, you know? And they went to overtime and scored two points. You got to make a box. The rules are very clear. Everyone forgets over time. They went to overtime and scored only the best part in shorter. Like, no. It's ten feet everywhere. It's like you.
" durant" Discussed on The Garden Report | Boston Celtics Post Game Show from TD Garden
"Like, this is how sports works like always and forever. There's nothing unique about your situation. You literally left the Celtics at the altar. You said you were going to marry them, and you left. And you just and now you're off with someone else. They're going to hate you forever, and they have every reason to. You earn it. I love this. I love this comment. It's blaming the victim. His victim blade. You guys were dying. You guys were dying for this dude two years ago. No, we were questioning two years ago. Like crazy. Like, we've always been, you know, outside of that first seat, or the first one, three, four months when there was no Hayward, and he was on my complete tear. Like, yeah, obviously we didn't, you know, we weren't going to say, oh man, he might leave Bolton, but two years ago that around that time, right before he was going for the very end of his tenure here, everybody was questioning Kyrie. I mean, we questioned if he even gave it his all in that series against the bucks. Never mind, after he eventually did make his decision and lead to Brooklyn. He was being questioned well before he made that decision well before them. And Jimmy and I can flat out say among the few people on record back there and we were back, we were at the garden. And we're looking around at people and we're like, nobody's gonna say this, huh? They should absolutely trade Kyrie at the trade deadline. Like, this is over. This is over. This is over, you know? And they didn't. But anyway, back to Kyrie, forget about that. This is the same, this is his problem. And this is a problem with a lot of those guys, like Kevin Durant. Like, yes. People are going to question when you leave the Golden State Warriors for something. When you join Golden State, people are going to say, you took the easy way out. Your job is to not care about that. It's not to make them think something else, okay? They're going to think that because that's what everybody would think. Okay, you can't beat them join them. You did it? Own it and love the fact that you won titles and move on, okay? I shouldn't matter to you. With Kyrie, they're going to hate you forever, and they probably have a right to because that's what fans do. Move on dude. It's not the fans that are wrong and you hear. That's how fans are. That's how they are. Just like just like they'll revere someone like big baby, who helped when who sits in somebody else's seat. That is someone to get into it later on. What happened? What would happen to them? You put it on the big screen, the crowd goes nuts. Bananas forever. It works the same way on the other side. When you're on the other side of me, exactly. Yeah. You can't make a girl go crazy, and then be like, yeah, do she was crazy. Like, you did that. She wasn't always crazy. You left her at the altar. Everyone gets booed, guys. You get when you choose to leave a team, you get booed, and sometimes it stinks, 'cause sometimes those guys gave their all. We can go back to like, you know, Johnny Damon, for example, was here with the Red Sox and, you know, won a World Series and wanted to stay here and was literally begging for them to match a contract that was totally reasonable and they didn't want him.

Get some shots up. Get some continuity. But y'all, let's get it together. Team USA is nine and five and exhibitions under Gregg Popovich. We miss Mike Stachowski. So I was horrified by what I saw last night and hopefully the additions of Booker and Drew Holiday and Middleton When those guys get done with the NBA finals, and they can get on the plane and get out to Japan, hopefully that rights the ship because right now I don't think Team USA is going to win the gold medal. Can't believe I'm saying that. All right. No more of that.

"That he didn't play well he played really poorly. Probably one of the worst games i've ever seen. But he had some key assists in that game most notably a nice left hand. Zip pass to kevin durant for a key layup. nice cut from durant with. I'm just. I'm still shocked. I was watching the game. Just shocked shocked shocked that they weren't involving him in the offensive actions. If you're the bucks explain to me tell me by curtain it was so clear to me as a novice. I never played the nba. Never coached never played college. I'm watching the game. Like why don't they just attack. James harden can't move. Why didn't they do that. That was a mistake. There's no it's houston. I can make for your family like you have to find a way to challenge james harden and not allow him to basically be out there and you really never go at them and the stat stands out to me. The most emotionally and psychologically is that james harden returned and play more minutes than yawns forty six minutes dot forty six seasons for her play minutes then jaanus so if you're watching the nfl game and elite wide receiver. The andrei hawkins are is playing against the rams and having a great game and movement of all around the field. What do you think jalen ramsey go go to the sideline until the defensive coordinator and his head coach. I'm following him. I don't care if you got me on the right side. I don't care what you're saying. I don't care what we practice. All we care what the game plan is. But i'm following him. He leads up in the backfield. I'll be he lands up.
" durant" Discussed on RJ Bell's Dream Preview
"Now, if gone state wins, two more games in the odds are in a little better, I guess, in twenty five percent. The case could be made the Kevin Durant came off his sake, bad play the game in which he was so hurt that he literally lost his season, over it by blown out his achilles. Is that how you signed a Kelly's? Again, I you might wanna refund for that. Verney can rest as long as we're talking about Durant Verney rised on his weekend gig. Is the idea that he and again, I think this is kind of dramatizing it, but I think it's hair dran did play when there was a real risk of getting reinjured, they didn't think you would. But there was certainly an increase wrist. He played exceptionally well far less than one hundred percent and the difference between that and him not playing is we're allowed them to win game five. If you lose game five you're out it's over. And the fact of the matter is, they won, if they went six and seven it will be like, Kevin Durant. He hero level. Effort balls grit. Whatever you wanna call it is, why going state one third straight title. And I think it'd be legitimate, if he would've stayed on the bench or stayed not playing. They probably don't win if they win. He'll be the difference. Imagine playing one quarter in the entire series and being able to say you, you know, and he won't say it, but that's going to be the PR messaging that your sacrifice. It's almost like giving your kidney up to the person who ends up going back in time machine and shooting Hitler kind of thing. It's like, yeah, you're only one piece of a chain of events. But if it weren't for that piece it wouldn't happen, right? Yeah. He said up hold on. We gotta let that breathe a little bit. How do you come up with that lay your kidney go back in time? And I don't know where you come on. It's it's a little bit of plain on off a trope now. Is there is the old? If you went back in time and Hitler was in his crib. What would you do because it's the whole kind of need superman. Do you take the law in your own hands? Those ski rats Kona call. I've read a few books back in college, the dealt with these issues because I probably had a superman complex myself. So, and it's an interesting concept if you're better, and again, not I grew up from that, not that I don't think I do things well, but, you know, we're all you or at least I know I'm human. I've had many human moments his a lot of people though. We talked about healing on mosque and we won't get back into that, but should you could it's so funny. Because in one way, we're getting so into everyone's the same. And to me, like everyone's the same. Why work hard? All right. So to me that was always a problem with socialism. I'm not talking about socialism as in social security, socialism. I mean, you know, from the book Karl Marx, the theory is, what motivates human activity. You are Brad, one of the hardest workers..

"Kevin Durant is the type of do that'll grabbed his bag and show up at ruckus funk in New York show up some that you Joplin he'll show up on any ballpark anyplace in America just to ball because that's how much he loves to actually play. Everything doesn't have to be organized. Everything doesn't have to be at some rec center with officials. You know that, that did that you pay in part, Tom, whatever the come in or whatever, or you got to hang with the fellas you know that to play with on the NBA level, Kevin Durant, a shop at a ballpark, anywhere in America, if he feels like it just stopped ball, that was his rep, particularly earlier on in his career, because he loves playing basketball that much so no one that you love playing basketball.

"I will not do that to him. But here's where I will come to. Kevin Durant defense. He did look Ethan Strauss. It looked like Ethan Strauss was right there. I couldn't tell from the camera angle. But he brought up his name looked at an estate year you after declaring he comes into the locker room, he just surveys the locker room. He don't talk to be doesn't talk to anybody. And then he writes it as if I said it. See to me, ladies and gentlemen, this about the history of Kevin Durant. The saying about a fake Twitter account the saying about him leaving. Okay. See for Golden State the say about none of that. This is about a young man who never gets in any trouble who conducts himself like a model citizen whose an elite performer in his chosen profession universally recognized as a tough five player on the planet earth. Saying to a reporter in front of the throws of media members that are there. I don't talk to you. You didn't talk to me. You didn't talk to anybody in this locker room. To me. The only thing I would say about Ethan Strauss's de requires a response. That's it nothing else. I don't care what the responses, but that requires a response, creating no way of hell anybody say that about me, and I'm gonna stick. Why does this happen? This is not going to happen. Even if it's the quote, and I'll hook eat Strauss up saying this, even if it's the quote, you don't know who the hell out talk to Kevin Durant. I talked to plenty of these people in his like just because they didn't tell you. And I'm not gonna tell you doesn't mean. I didn't talk to anybody the hell, you know, who I talked to. What can Kevin Durant side of that not a damn thing because he doesn't. But Kevin Durant said quote. You never talked to me. He didn't even say, I don't talk to you. He said you didn't talk to me. So that means he's accusing Strauss of walking into a locker room. Seeing him looking right out and not asking them any questions. But then turn it around and going the right now that opinion, not just another to'real. He saying you're writing is if I said it. Those are harsh accusations. And I think it requires a response from that reporter. Because I personally believe Ethan Strauss's talked to numerous people, and I personally believe that he's cultivated enough sources to formulate the opinion that he has. But that's not what Kevin Durant accused him of. He accused him of something far more heinous he accused him. Of looking right at him not talking to him..
