Kevin Durant, Nets teammates celebrate after playoff loss to Bucks
Kevin Durant and the rest of the Brooklyn Nets are living their best lives. After being unceremoniously ousted by the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 7 of what turned out to be an epic second-round series, KD and the crew decided to blow off some steam in the best way they know how — by partying.
According to Mara Siegler of Page Six, Durant booked JIMMY rooftop located in the newly opened ModernHaus SoHo for an exclusive party. The event was held on Monday — one day after the Nets lost Game 7 to the Bucks in the Barclays Center — with players such as Blake Griffin, Nicolas Claxton, DeAndre Jordan, Bruce Brown, and Tyler Johnson among those who reportedly made an appearance.
Interestingly enough, it looks like both Kyrie Irving and James Harden snubbed KD’s party invite. Irving was probably doing a bit of soul-searching after a bitter end to the season while Harden, well, who knows where James Harden was at on Monday. What we know is that the former MVP is fond of exotic dancers, so it wouldn’t be surprising if he was making his rounds around town, so to speak.
The report also suggests that Durant’s party was pretty laid back and that nothing crazy went down:
“It was just a bunch of folks enjoying cocktails in the breeze outside by the pool,” says a source who added that the party seemed “very informal.”
Durant left everything on the basketball court for the Nets in what was nothing short of a spectacular performance not only in Game 7 on Sunday, but for pretty much the entire playoffs. He definitely deserves some R&R over what will be a very interesting offseason.
