Nick Wright gives Kevin Durant a career wake-up call

Nick Wright gives Kevin Durant a career wake-up call

You'd probably feel liberated, too, if you just hit the game-winning shot - a shot you've worked on your entire life - over your idol on the biggest National Basketball Association stage possible.

Specifically, during Durant's go-ahead three-pointer with James guarding him during Golden State's 118-113 comeback win in Game 3 against the Cavaliers. I had to tell myself it was cool to feel that way.

While the moment was a big one for the Warriors, it was probably bigger for Durant. "I made the game-winning shot in the finals against my (expletive) idol". And so, even if you don't buy into the idea that Durant forfeited the opportunity, you say it doesn't matter that he teamed up with the other best player in the world, or second, or third-best player in the world, he's still good.

Durant wound up winning Finals MVP and was among the favorites to be named league MVP heading into the season.

"I chose to take control of my life, and I think that was a huge step for me personally, and I felt really proud", said Durant.
"We're just realizing it now". And a lot of people didn't want us to be woke. "They simplify their lives, and they have some clarity. We got control of that now".

Rumors have circulated that Durant uses burner Twitter accounts to go after trolls that attack him on social media.

James, he said, "gave me the courage" to not only risk fans' wrath by switching teams in search of a better situation, but to also risk injury by signing short-term deals that provide leverage. "Now I know. It's cool to do, but the journey is better than the destination". Don't feel down about it. I'm having a bad day today.

Kevin Durant apparently envisions his No. 35 Thunder jersey hanging from the rafters at Oklahoma City's Chesapeake Energy Arena. [Expletive] happens. If I was on my death bed, I guarantee you Sam Presti and Russell Westbrook would come check on me. Maybe just not on a basketball court. There's no telling if Golden State can pull it off.
