Kevin Durant Rips Media: "I Dont' Trust None Of Y'all"

Kevin Durant Rips Media:

Durant's decision to join the Warriors was arguably the most scrutinized free agency move in National Basketball Association history, leading to Durant instantly becoming the most disliked player in the league.

Golden State Warriors superstar Kevin Durant has been uncharacteristically quiet with reporters ever since the New York Knicks - a team Durant has been heavily linked to as a potential landing spot in free agency this summer - moved Kristaps Porzingis to the Dallas Mavericks.

Durant wants people to focus on what's happening on the court right now, where the Warriors look once again like the most dominant force in the league - this press conference came after a near 40-point blowout of the Spurs. And now when I don't want to talk to y'all, that's a problem on me. I have nothing to do with the Knicks, I don't know who traded Porzingis, it's got nothing to do with me. "The way he plays basketball and the way he is as a teammate and all that type of stuff, that's all we're anxious about, and I think he's doing a great job of that".

When pressed further, he told reporters: "Y'all come here every day, ask me about free agency, talk to my team-mates, talk to my coaches, rile up the fans about it. What's the problem? What am I doing to y'all?" "Come on man. Grow up". He was probably exhausted of all the speculation, and I just thought he'll eventually get back speaking with the media. "Every time I say something it's getting twisted up and thrown out and in so many different publications, trying to tear me down with my words that I say". I don't cause no problems. We talk all the time - just like I do with all the players.

Kevin Durant just wants to go to the gym, play ball and go home. "Is that a problem?" And Durant, whose departure from Golden State is talked. "You know you don't care about that".

"Honestly, I think it's him not being able to control his own voice", Curry said.

"Let us play basketball, " Durant said in his two-and-a-half minute rant.
