    Damn I hate seeing this. KD is one of my favorite players to watch since his college days.

    He was seen leaving the arena accompanied with his agent, doctor, as well as a real estate agent. He's getting a head start on Kawhi looking for a residence in Toronto.

    Join the team that beat you, that's what he do!

    No doubt originally an Achilles strain, which has now ruptured playing on it injured. Wow, will be the biggest story line of the offseason. Should still get a max deal, worth it just to have him back fully healthy for your team in 2021.

    If he was pressured to play, as it seems, he won’t resign and that will be the beginning of the end of this dynasty.

    Warriors management / medical staff will get shredded for playing him half baked.

    It's only fair -- Durant's Achilles is shredded.

    I see it now. It looks like something happened in his calf and not the Achilles. Unless the Achilles popping sent a reverberation through his leg.

    Looks like everyone is saying its the achilles. Theres multiple videos of other athletes rupturing their achilles in the exact same way.

    Oof, blame has to be put on the Warriors' brass and teammates for the pressure they put on Durant who is a grown man, but not really his own man.
