Nets star Kevin Durant’s business partner reacts to Steve Kerr’s controversial ‘untouchables’ list

Kevin Durant, Nets, Steve Kerr, Rich Kleiman

Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr recently came out with his list of untouchable players in the NBA. One glaring absentee on Kerr’s inventory was none other than Brooklyn Nets superstar Kevin Durant.

More than a few folks have reacted to Kerr’s decision to omit KD from his “truly untouchable” list, and this includes Durant’s own business partner, Rich Kleiman (h/t ClutchPoints on Twitter):

Kleiman caught wind of Kerr’s controversial comments and decided to jump in on the action on social media. He did not say much though, but the two emojis he used made it clear that he does not exactly agree with Kerr here.

Former Warriors player Matt Barnes also chimed in on the discussion and he too is on the same boat as Kleiman. Needless to say, there are a lot of people out there who believe that the Nets will never ever trade Kevin Durant.

Kleiman and Durant recently made headlines after it was announced that cryptocurrency platform Coinbase garnered a record-setting $86 billion valuation on Wednesday. KD and Kleiman reportedly invested with the tech company back in 2017. It is unclear how much they invested in the company three years ago, but that amount has since skyrocketed after Coinbase became a publicly traded company on the Nasdaq.

Needless to say, Kleiman considers Kevin Durant to be an outstanding business partner (and a good buddy, of course) and we’re pretty sure Kleiman won’t be trading KD for anything else in the world. As for Steve Kerr, however, I guess he has a different view as to Durant’s current valuation as a player.
