KEVIN DURANT: ‘STARTED ISOLATING MYSELF’ AFTER DRAYMOND GREEN INCIDEN
On All the smoke on Showtime with Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson, Kevin Durant was the guest to speak about past, present and future with the Nets. Indeed there is something we all want to know about is the Kendrick Perkins Twitter rant but more important what was the reason behind him leaving such a great organisation like Golden State.
The Draymond Green incident is the main trigger:
I just started isolating myself after that,” Durant told Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson on the latest “All The Smoke” podcast episode.
“They suspended Draymond, but it was just like, they had to so it won’t look bad to everybody else. And then nobody talked to me about it…It happened in front of the whole team and nobody really talked about it.
“It was just swept under the rug. And to me, it was just like, we’re a family. Even if he said that, we could move past it. Let’s all talk about. Let’s just say how we all felt about that moment because that’s a huge moment in this whole dynasty. Don’t just sweep it under the rug because we want to win. That’s the reason why we’re not going to win… And when that didn’t happen, I was just like, ‘Fuck it. Let me just hoop and worry about myself.’”
