NBA Players REACT To Kevin Durant's Torn Achilles



what's going on basketball fans my name is Josh I am back with another video last night we witnessed one of the toughest moments in the NBA in recent memory Kevin Durant who missed the last 30 days with a calf injury was finally making his return the Warriors were down 3-1 and with arguably the best player in the world coming back we were in store for a special game Kevin Durant was on fire in that first quarter dropping 11 points including three for three from downtown but with about ten minutes left in the second quarter Kevin Durant tried to go between the legs towards the basket and instantly fell on the ground holding his Achilles it might have been clear in that moment that maybe Kevin Durant wasn't a hundred percent ready to come back but nevertheless he gave it everything he had and at the end of the day it was just a freak accident at its finest it was announced that Kevin Durant has suffered a torn Achilles and as a result he will miss the rest of the postseason and who knows how much longer but as expected the NBA world blew up after Kevin Durant got injured so in this video we will take a look at what NBA players thought about Kevin Durant's injury so first up we have Stephon Curry and klay Thompson talking about the Achilles injury kind of an emotional moment all the way around something told me just to go back there and I really don't know what I said or what he said it just sucks man like no longer they know what else to say about it so that's it it's tough it's really it sucks man I feel so bad for those two especially Kevin I don't know the extent of his injury but that's never fun man for what he did for him to put his health on the line to come back and compete at the highest level he's one of the best to ever do it I want to try to win this for him we miss him we just hoped my speedy recovery that's our brother and it's honestly to be to be honest it kind of it cut it's very deflating it's hard to even celebrate this win Stefan clay are gonna have to carry the worries if they want to win another NBA championship but if there's any backcourt capable of doing that it's them but as you can tell both Klay and Steph are pretty somber about the situation as they should be now here's what Kawhi Leonard thought about the injury you know is devastating you know you like you say you work so hard to get to this point you know these other last games you see tried to come out and I mean he'll push himself but you know obviously you know he tried to do a move and you know I feel bad for him you know I've been in that situation before I hope you you know have a speedy recovery and you know just gets healthy and help it hope that he's gonna be okay mentally just throughout the whole rehab process because you know like I said before you know we work we work so hard to either play enough finals I just play in the NBA and you know when you're not playing you know it's hard to wrap your mental around it but I'm pretty sure he's going to attack each day and you know get better and then come back strong so with that being said let's get into a couple tweets from some NBA players Dwyane Wade said even with all the things Kevin Durant has done this is the most fanned out I've been he knew he wasn't right but he wanted to be there for his brothers that's sports that's love trae Young said major respect for Kevin Durant wanting to rush back and try to help his team win a championship get back healthy bro Marvin badly the third from the Sacramento King said praying for you bro at Katie tre five Enes Kanter former teammate of Kevin Durant said respect Get Well brother buddy hield said you got to give Kevin Durant the respect for going out there and trying to help his team Kevin Love said no hate to see that Joel embiid said why are they cheering for his injury come on man hashtag disgusting and yeah at first the Raptors fans were cheering on the injury the big respect to Kyle Lowry Danny Green and Pascal siakam for just trying to calm down the crowd and just keep everybody in check I know it was a very emotional moment but cheering for a guy who just got injured like that's just wrong Kendrick Perkins said if Katy hurt I blame the Warriors for pressuring that man to play and he wasn't healthy that's messed up I told him the other night not to play unless he was a hundred percent Yusuf Turkish you had a devastating injury of his own tweeted the praying emoji Josh Hart said damn my boy prayers up at Kevin Durant Victor Oladipo said prayers up for the big bro Kevin Durant God got you Channing Frye former NBA champion said damn man watching that live hurts my heart katie is a warrior for even coming out damn man prayers up for Kevin Durant been my favorite player since I was young and it's hard to see someone who grew up admiring go down nothing but love for him hoping for a speedy recovery now for maybe the saddest reaction of them all here's what bob myers had to say after the game he was pretty shaken up it's it's an Achilles injury I don't know the extent of it he'll have an MRI tomorrow prior to coming back he went through four weeks with our medical team and it was thorough and there was experts and multiple MRIs and multiple doctors and we felt good about the process he was cleared to play tonight that was a collaborative decision I don't believe there's anybody to blame but I understand is this world and if you have to you can blame me I run our best about the operations department I felt bad for Bob Myers in the situation he's taking all the blame for the Kevin Durant injury which might not even be his fault I mean at the end of the day it was a championship on the line and Kevin Durant is the ultimate competitor and he was just trying to win and he ended up coming back before he was ready and we'll find out in the coming days if that calf injury he suffered versus Houston played a part in this Achilles injury because right now we just don't know for sure but man what a crazy time it is in the NBA and what a crazy NBA Finals we have right now I mean the storyline is just crazy the last couple years in the NBA Finals it's been LeBron versus the Warriors and there really hasn't been much competition but this year the Warriors are beat up battered up and kevin durand now has been injured and the game he comes back he suffers an injury like that I mean as an NBA fan it's the worst possible situation you never want to see a guy who has been in the conversation as the best player in the world to suffer an injury like that at the prime of his career I mean Kevin Durant still has so many good years of basketball left in him and you hate hate hate to see any of that time gets shortened because of injury and for the Warriors and Kevin Durant playing in the NBA Finals competing for what would have been Durant's third consecutive NBA title it's just not fair and for the Raptors I mean I just want to show my respect all those guys on the team we're very respectable towards Kevin Durant even when the injury happened and postgame and I just want to give huge respect to them and the coaching staff on TV you could see some fans waving goodbye to Kevin Durant and those guys were just acting out of emotion and you can't blame them but something like that is just uncalled for but like Brian Windhorse said on ESPN postgame this injury just shook the NBA more than we can even believe if Kevin Durant ends up missing an entire year there are gonna be so many unanswered djinns what happens this free agency is Kevin Durant gonna stay or is he gonna leave what team is Kevin Durant gonna go to what's Kevin Durant's recovery process gonna be like I mean so many questions are being thrown up in the air and the balance of power in the NBA is gonna be all over the place next year because who knows what the Warriors are gonna look like who knows what the Raptors are gonna look like who knows what the Lakers are gonna look like there's so many teams in the mix right now and this one Kevin Durant injury might shake the NBA more than anything in recent memory I can't think of the last time there has been an injury that is gonna make as big of an impact as Kevin Durant's Achilles injury and I also can't remember a time when a player in his prime if Kevin Durant's caliber has gone down with an injury like this I mean Kobe Bryant tore his Achilles as well but you have to remember Kobe Bryant was on the decline of his career Durant was at the peak of his career winning titles and Golden State and now that might be over but with that being said the NBA Finals are heading back to Oracle for one last time for Game six and we'll see what happens then the Warriors have a chance the Raptors have a chance and without Kevin Durant we'll see what happens but I hope you guys enjoyed the video if you did make sure you guys hit that like button also hit that subscribe button I want you guys let me know in the comment section down below what you think about this whole Kevin Durant situation what was your initial reaction but we just got to move forward and get ready for game number six and just be excited for more NBA Finals basketball so with that being said that's it for me till next time peace

  1. I can’t speak for all the fans.. but I believe most of them cheered at the fact that their odds of winning went higher. NOT the fact that a player got injured.

  6. missed 33 days….It wasn't freak accident, for crying out loud. It is a DIRECT RESULT of playing in a high end finals game without rehabbing the calf directly above the Achilles. What is "freak accident" about. If a table fell on his leg, that would be a freak accident.

  11. First of all Kendrick Perkins you right they did indirectly pressure him to come back they were down 3-1 and watching the way Kawhi Leonard came back this season KD owed it to himself to get healthy that being said Bob Myers you have a billion times my respect for taking the blame ultimately we the world has to blame somebody okay so I'm blaming indirect pressure from the Golden State Warriors being down 3 to 1 Good Win Warriors Horrible lost by losing KD
