After not speaking with the Northern California media for a good week, Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant absolutely laid into those covering the team following Wednesday night’s 39-point blowout win over the San Antonio Spurs.
While Durant showed himself to be a little less than professional in his rant directed at said media, he was in no way wrong with the point he was attempting to convey.
“He (Ethan Strauss of The Athletic) just give his whole opinion on stuff and make it seem like it coming from me,” Durant said. “And he just walk around here and don’t talk to nobody, just walk in here, and survey, and then write something like that, and now you all piling on me because I don’t want to talk to y’all about that. I have nothing to do with the Knicks, I don’t know who traded Porzingis, it’s got nothing to do with me.”
This was in response to an article the longtime Warriors scribe published earlier in the day openly wondering why Durant has been standoffish with the media.
