    Discuss.

    Durant sounds like an idiot/hypocrite to me.

    Actually it makes sense. To be the best player on a team of All stars is a big deal.

    Taken out of context:
    He meant “ it’s easy to win a ring when you puss out and join the best team in the league.”

    I mean you saw Westbrook average 30 point triple double and he isn't anything close to the best player in the league.

    Lebron and Harden could do that too

    He is a clown. He took the easy way out and he will never get past a certain ceiling because of it.

    However I love how no one like no one at all calls Curry out for his BS of giving up his team. You can't be elite if abdicate responsibility. Curry as well took the easy way out.

    lmao dude just won a championship and is still arguing against all the narratives and critics. Something tells me that just like after the first championship, he's still bothered by all of the critiques of his decision, he cares so much about what other people think and is just trying way too hard to cover it up. It probably bothers him that he cares so damn much LOL

    Ignore it! Just Small Penis syndrome talk... He just talks alot of crap because the man is so insecure. He used to talk alot of crap to Houston, until we finally got some fighters and Chris Paul on our team with Harden. They all attacked him and Durant Shrank in alot of stretches. Harden stripped the ball from him a couple times too...
    I still think he moved to the bay area because he is in the closet!

    Kevin. Put down the gun. You don't have to self destruct your reputation at every turn.

    I don't see what's so controversial about it.

    He is saying what everyone always says about how "easy" it is for players to pad stats as a lone star on a mediocre team. (Ex. Kevin Love in his Timberwolves days.)

    You're such a Warriors die-hard, no one can take what you say around here seriously. You solely exist on these boards to defend everything Warriors. 2 years and counting.

    It’s actually not easy. Being the best player on a bad team means you will be the focus of the defense. The whole defensive scheme is built around stopping one player. Now lets talk about how with 4 all-stars you can’t double anyone and have to play straight up. Warriors are built on the fact that you can’t contain all of them in a 7 game series. Seems it’s easier to be a star when you have a stacked team.
