  1. His career will get worse , after the achilles injury how do you think he can bounce back?Come on man , if u are in that situation you gotta accept this offer .He makes mistake after mistake again . After that injury he wont be able to lead a team .if he stays in GSW , he can be not first(which he was) but at least second or third option for GSW which is the best case scenario for him but he is a weird mindset like Kyrie what do you expect from KD? 😂

  5. That interview of Iggy just may be him saying he is retiring, but who knows? This offseason/free agency is gonna be fun to follow!!

  6. Damn, Warriors did KD so wrong I feel personally he clearly had an Achilles injury that series against Portland and management/players pressured him to perform Game 6, they maybe even lessened the severity of the injury by calling it a calf strain. Numbing his pain with strong medicine so he doesn’t feel the pain.The team knew as well KD was hurt but so we’re they. They became selfish for a title instead of a mans health/career and instead got neither at the end. Nobody’s bigger than life I agree with Max he won’t be the same player but best wish to whoever bets on him with a max contract I just hope it’s not the Knicks. KD was the best player in the league before this injury. Get well soon KD!

  8. Broke his foot….super injury prone
    Hes damaged goods and will NEVER be
    100%. Durant is a likable guy but
    His injuries are not from physical contact
    Just too injury prone…PASS ON KD

  9. For me, in my opinion, warriors can move on to the next chapter and rebuild around the splash brothers. Its ok for me that durant will leave. They need to rest next season. Atleast make the playoffs.
    They need bigmen. And kerr will adjust his playbook. There will be more triangle offenses

    For the long haul. They should pattern there franchise like the spurs.

    Curry will win again before he retires. Just like Duncan

  11. Let's talk real right now a lot of people want kevin to go to New York but nobody is thinking about that man's actual life. You can blame the doctors or whoever you want to blame but we have to deal with the situation at hand and facts are he's injured badly and facts are this is an uncertain injury and we don't know how he will be when he returns I believe in him and if anyone can return and be better then he was pre injury it's Kevin Wayne Durant but not too many players return the same as prior to the injury and he will be on the latter end of his career he will be older. Kevin secure your bag brother. He has to think about his life after basketball fuck what a hater has to say what a knicks fan has to say what the media has to say what anybody has to say when he retires most fans are just going to move on to the next great basketball player and he is still going to need to provide for himself and his family financially every player can't be a sportscaster and there are a lot of ex pro athletes that are now broke and I would hate to see that happen to Kevin. The best advice I could give Kevin would be to resign and play out the rest of your career with the warriors get your supermax that you earned and your best shot at earning more rings and start to plan for your life after basketball. Kevin never really struck me as a stupid man so I'm pretty sure he is taking all of this into consideration while making his decision

  12. The warriors used Ramona to put out there that KD’s achilles couldn’t rupture because it was probable that it would rupture. Basic PR
