Nets star Kevin Durant tweeted and deleted a response to Magic Johnson’s First Take comments
Durant told the Wall Street Journal a few weeks ago he felt like an outsider in Golden State since Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green — the main cornerstones of the Warriors — were drafted and groomed by the Dubs.
Magic Johnson, in an appearance on ESPN’s First Take on Friday, said he wants Durant to find happiness. However, he pointed out he doesn’t know where the two-time Finals MVP can find it if he wasn’t happy in Golden State — having won back-to-back championships with the team.
Kevin Durant signed a four-year deal with Brooklyn this offseason. He’s been back on Twitter lately, responding to trolls in his mentions. At some point, the Nets star just has to let go and not care about what other people think of him.
Durant finished his Warriors career with averages of 25.8 points in 208 regular season games. Despite saying Golden State’s motion offense only worked to a certain point, KD still flourished with the Dubs and got the two rings he needed to cement his legacy as one of the best players in NBA history.
Durant will spend the upcoming season rehabbing his Achilles injury under the careful eye of the Nets’ medical staff. A 10-time All-Star, Durant has career averages of 27.0 points, 7.1 rebounds and 4.1 assists in 849 games.
Hopefully, KD finds happiness in Brooklyn playing with his two close friends, Kyrie Irving and DeAndre Jordan.
