Kevin Durant has made it abundantly clear this season that he’s not a very big fan of the media. At times, Durant has even lashed out members of the media for their persistent coverage of his upcoming free agency. Some have said that Durant will absolutely be leaving the Warriors and will end up with the New York Knicks. Durant hasn’t confirmed or denied any of the reports, although he has criticized the media for their questions. The Warriors star even said the media is dependent on him and his situation.
“They need me,” Durant said according to NBC Sports Bay Area’s Logan Murdock. “If I wasn’t a free agent, none of this s–t would go on, right? None of this speculation about who I am, what’s wrong with my mental, why I’m miserable, why I ain’t happy with life. Nothing.”
When it comes to the speculation, Durant admits that it is a big deal, although he feels like some members of the press have been committing some egregious journalistic errors.
“That’s a hot topic,” Durant said. “But you don’t have to talk about it. And then you don’t have to get mad when I don’t want to talk about it. And then you don’t have to get mad when your little brain is roaming around, but you can’t find the correct answers. That’s bad journalism. That’s not doing your job well.”
Where do you think Durant will end up next season?
