Kevin Durant gets blamed by Miami football coach for impact on recruiting

Warriors

No wonder Golden State Warriors superstar small forward Kevin Durant sometimes seems salty. Make fun of his burner accounts all we want, he often receives flack for happenings that clearly have nothing to do with him.

Oh, hello there, Manny Diaz.

Who the heck is Manny Diaz, you ask? He’s a football dude who coached the Miami Hurricanes as an assistant, took another job, then five minutes later returned to Miami.

Diaz, obviously a man who isn’t known to change his mind within a short time period, blames Kevin Durant for… wait for it… making recruiting difficult.

From the Miami Herald:

“Look, the world has changed, and I’m going to blame the NBA. Once Kevin Durant went to the Warriors after they were 3-1 up when he was at Oklahoma City — kids want to go where the winning is. So, that’s hard because you have to create the winning to get them to come to where the winning is. So, there’s a natural tendency to be drawn to the places that are currently on top, which, that’s fair.”

Yeah, shame on you KD, for joining the Warriors and altering college football forever — or something? Likely something, but no need to worry about the semantics. Go Hurricanes!
