Rob has been going to bat for KD for YEARS. Defending him even when he himself knew it was hard to. You can tell this hurts him as a fan. This team paid this man the max deal even though they knew he would sit for a year, when the Knicks wouldn't do it and that's the main place he wanted to go, before Kyrie talked him into Brooklyn. He allowed Kyrie to use him as leverage against the team. Like, dude, you left to lead your own team. So lead. Either give up the goat discussion and stop going at every single person who comments about you, or lead. Steph caught heat during their rebuild. It fueled him. LeBron caught heat for going to Miami and knew he had unfinished business in Cleveland, it fueled him. Kobe wanted LA to be his team and caught heat when Shaq left and won a title in Miami. It fueled him. This all comes down to the fact that Durant wants to be able to just hoop and not take on the leadership responsibility of being a 'Bus Driver', but still wants to be in the GOAT discussion. There is no shortcut to getting into that discussion.

You can hear it in Robs voice that he’s genuinely disappointed in this move. KDs inability to hold Kyrie accountable is the biggest issue. Allowing Kyrie to run amok and do whatever is what lead to this situation.

@Donnie Mitchell Not really sure what you mean. I understand a player can leave if his current team does not match his ambitions but at the time, OKC was trying all they could. Also, no self respecting superstar player will ever join a team that just beat him especially when they were 3- 1 up in the series. He won a championship but still felt empty cos he knows it’s not the same. Any superstar could have join that warrior team and still achieve the same result. Can you imagine Micheal Jordan joining the pistons because he could not overcome them earlier. KD is a superstar but is not a leader. He bails when the situation is tough. He is probably looking for another super team to win another easy championship. He does not like to grind.

@Michael Johnson That's laughable. What person in there right mind would ask to be traded to a sorry team. What does playing with another Allstar have to do with him winning? That happens all the time, it's nothing knew. Lakers had multiple Allstars, Boston, Bucks, Clippers so that's moot point. Didn't the GSW lose with 3 Allstars on the teams to Cleveland. KD had pressure to win the title with GSW. If he hadn't won, you would be blaming him. If you think KD wasn't the best player on that team, you know nothing about basketball.
Michael Johnson
Michael Johnson Mês atrás
@Toi Toi Kevin Durant may have been the best performer in terms of individual statistics on that Warriors team, but the wasn't the best player on that team. Golden State is built around Stephen Curry's talents, and the Warriors had a much better record without Durant in those three years (27-4) than without Curry (24-23). Durant literally was taking uncontested shots because teams couldn't afford to take a man off Curry or Klay Thompson. Once again, you cited his Finals MVPs and yet he couldn't scratch one win in the playoffs this season with another All-Star level player on his team. The reality is Golden State also won titles with Harrison Barnes (below-average small forward) and Andrew Wiggins (average small forward) playing small forward. Winning titles with Durant at small forward was almost too easy, to where most of their series was lopsided. They only needed Durant to make their winning laughably easy, instead of competitive. There was no pressure on Durant in Golden State. If for some reason he couldn't get it done, he had Curry and even Thompson or Golden State's system to bail him out. In Brooklyn and Oklahoma City, Durant carried the traditional pressure associated with the top player on a more conventional team. -- and we see how that worked out for him. Durant is a franchise player who wants to go to a team that already is a contender without him, wants the role of a highly overqualified secondary player and yet wants the accolades of being "the missing piece." That's why, not coincidentally, Durant wants to go to the two teams that were in the top seeds in the NBA this past season (Miami and Phoenix). He doesn't have to be a leader, he doesn't have to corral the troops, he even doesn't have to face a double team -- he just wants to be a franchise player with role player responsibilities and take uncontested shots, while his jock riders claim he was indispensable.

These players up and leaving is a horrible look for the Association. I am all for players having rights and make their money. However to make these “super teams” and then just leave and in the process leave the team in ruins is really bad! It seems like their are hardly any fans of teams anymore and it reflects on the TV Ratings! It is just sad to see this happening to basketball!

He made the WCF in the last season with OKC. I'd say he did well. KD won everything except a ring when he left OKC in 2016. It was only natural that he'd go with the best opportunity to get it. I don't think there was another player in the NBA with his resume and zero rings prior to GS. It was a no brainer but I get the criticism.

This shows how special and now, how rare it will be to see a team like the Warriors with Steph, Klay, and Draymond staying together for what may be their whole career is. The franchise drafts and ownership does what they have to to keep their guys, who want to stay together too. If they re-sign Looney, they’ll have 11 guys they drafted (Assuming their 1st 2 draftees make the roster) on the team. They should be appreciated more and stop the hate towards them. Gonna be top contenders for the next 4-5 yrs, maybe 10+ if Poole, Kuminga, Moody, Wiseman reach their potential, which 2-4 can be all stars.

The turmoil around these two prior to and presently with Brooklyn is such a shame, it’s almost legitimately sad. At one point, both were two of the most likable guys in the league. To a degree, I think most people WANT to still like and enjoy them. But this entire Nets fiasco has been a train wreck since conception. Injuries, games missed while healthy, dismissing Nash as the coach, adding Harden, losing Harden, adding Ben, confused about Ben… just damn!

With KD you definitely wanted to like him and, at least in OKC, he was easy to root for. Even with Golden State, I liked what he was doing until it turned out that he was quote dramatic despite ridiculous success and support from the team. Kyrie with LeBron was likable, but homie skipped the snowball and went riding on an avalanche of self and team sabotage after leaving the Cavs. Despite talent, I'm not quite sure Kyrie is worth picking up for any of the top contenders in the league. At this point, they both seem like a headache

Prior to KD and Kyrie, the Nets had a young and upcoming team that was the future and these two guys literally gutted the team and now he bounces? Dude is not that guy, he's a great scorer and that's about it. Put Melo on the Warriors around the same time and Melo gets two rings. KD was built up by Nike in order to sell shoes, he is really not that guy. Out of all the superstars, dude is the only one that has not lead a team to anything but failure, dude just got swept and now he runs, just pathetic.

He’s not the only superstar that hasn’t led a team to a title.

He’s nowhere near the player or scorer KD is, especially at that stage of his career. Melo would’ve taken that team down a few notches cause he’s a selfish player.

To think so many people were killing James Harden for bailing on the team last season. Now he looks like a damn genius. I actually feel bad for Brooklyn. This has turned into a disaster of epic proportion. They're now going to be losing their two superstars, and the only thing they've got to show for all the money and picks they threw away is a 200 pound anvil in Ben Simmons just waiting to sink what's left of the ship next year. They might even lose a ton of their role players like Blake Griffin. A lot of those guys took pay cuts to come play with KD. They might end up having trouble keeping even their basic players.

@Jordan Davis it's odd to me. You guys talk about integrity and honor like he hasn't stayed quiet and played out his contract everywhere he's been. Brooklyn took KD and Kai. They signed on for both of those guys. You can't change the terms now. I understand why KD is frustrated. The basketball side of things has been nothing but inconsistency, but you gotta see it through with Kyrie. The front office can't decide to play hard ball now, so yes, integrity and honor goes both ways.

Dirk, Giannis, Curry and Duncan are much better examples than Kobe.

When Jerry West gifted the Lakers Pau Gasol, Kobe became loyal again and won. Don’t use Kobe as an example for team loyalty!!!

Charles Barkley was right, Kevin Durant can’t drive the bus, he doesn’t want the responsibility of being the main guy. when he was in Golden State it was the perfect situation, Bcus all he had to do was play basketball. and that’s all he wants to do. he can’t handle being the guy.but on the flip side I can see why he would want to leave , Kyrie Irving is unpredictable. he decides when he wants to go to work , or if he is going to play.but as far as I’m concerned I can’t look at KD the same.he a superstar that doesn’t want the pressure or expectations that comes with being a superstar
Michael Johnson
Michael Johnson Mês atrás
"but on the flip side I can see why he would want to leave, Kyrie Irving is unpredictable." The problem with this statement is Kevin Durant chose to hook up with Kyrie Irving and let Irving lead him to Brooklyn. So even when it comes to his career decision, Durant didn't want to take ownership of where was going to play after he left Golden State. Moreover, it is not like Irving has never shown this kind of behavior in Cleveland and Boston. There was an eight-year track record of what Irving was like before Durant decided to follow him like a lost puppy. If anything, Durant is the one most teams wanted in free agency, not Irving. Additionally, Brooklyn bent over backward to accommodate Durant and Irving -- giving Durant a max contract knowing he was going to miss his first season in Brooklyn, trading away the personnel that helped the Nets get to the playoffs before they arrived, removing Kenny Atkinson as the head coach, mortgaging its future on James Harden -- so Durant has to take some ownership.

I wouldn’t call this a “weak move” . This was calculated 100% . It’s clear to me KD was expecting Ky to opt out, the Nets use that cap space for a star/role players & stayed with the Nets .

I think this is what happens when ring culture meets narcissistic overpaid players. We need to get back to celebrating players like Dirk that were loyal throughout and even though he only won one, it means more. This idea that you're a failure if you don't win led KD to golden state, then led him to Brooklyn to be "the man", now the Nets aren't looking stacked to he wants to go to pheonix who won the most regular season games the last two years? Never thought I'd say this but I hope the owners take the players to the cleaners at the next cba

I don't know how you can hold him accountable for the things someone else does.

The problem with KD is he only makes decisions to make other people like him, instead of what he wants to do. He went to the Warriors because he was tired of people criticizing him for not having a ring, then when he got 2 rings and not everyone appreciated them he left. Now he's basically choosing Phoenix or Miami which are the 2 best teams that he'd be the clear number 1 on, both who have already made the finals. It's kinda sad that he spends all this effort seeking the validation of others and yet he still is one of the most hated players in the nba.

He was trying to 3 peat. I don't think he saw much to do after that. That organization peaked. They was no way for KD to leave an imprint there.

I really don't understand why folks act like him staying in GS was something honorable. He did the right thing to leave. It was too easy.

Especially because they did everything yall asked for.

But somebody like you (Fashion) lack the backbone to stand.

You cannot break an agreement because you forced an organization to sign Kyrie aka rebel without a cause Irving as your teammate. I wouldn't trade him and if he gives me problems, I would make sure that he lives to regret it. Who's he playing with ? Spencer gone, Jarrett gone, Prince gone, Harden gone, LeVert gone, Kyrie a disaster. Naw you got it twisted, you ain't going nowhere until you 38 homeboy that's what you get when you try to play me.

@Judy Clarkson comparing a team that won games when Curry was on the bench to a team that slipped from 2nd to 10th without KD is disingenuous. No one on the Nets stepped up like Wiggins and Poole did. Warriors got stronger with Klay's return. Nets got weaker when Harden left. It's not the same. Kyrie showing up for 10 games and fasting for half of them is hardly considered healthy. Nets doesn't have the luxury of having their second star play as inconsistent as Klay did and still win games. These aren't even excuses, the two teams are just constructed differently. Also no one considered Nets the favorites after Harden left. We really gotta stop acting like they didn't have to crawl their way into the playoffs.
Judy Clarkson
Judy Clarkson Mês atrás
Excuses made for him again.. As far as Im concerned Kyrie was healthy in this postseason (glad they've lifted that vaccinated rules so y'all don't have that excuses that he can't play home gms btw). And talking about continuity, there was no continuity whatsoever when that GS trio only played for 11 mins this season going into the postseason. Kyrie & Kd have played much longer time than that I suppose. And why can't they just run it back at least for one more season if the argument is continuity? Kd could just call Kyrie, try to have a go for one more season, but no Kd didn't make any of that move and instead easily giving up for a much easier road to get another ring. Context matters I agree, but Kd gives up too easily when the going gets tough. And this postseason failure is no excuse considering Kyrie played full healthy, and everyone kinda put them as one of the favorites with the Suns and Bucks, and yet they got swept in the first round. So 🤷‍♂️

Wonder what that 2019 Brooklyn Net team would look like now maybe even got a solid FA signing to help not saying they would have won a Chip, but I think they could be in a Memphis position or how Utah look like something before this year

The only thing for me that has changed is him going to and then leaving Golden State. Seeing how that organisation functions top to bottom and to take any and all that knowledge and be like… ah I can do this myself along with Kyrie Irving… every decision BKN made is like the worst decision every single time. So badly wants any success to be his so so so badly that he gets the credit that he’ll control and want major input on everything and yet this is where the Nets have got to with KD’s input. Players prepare for the next CBA talks gonna be a lockout.

@Delon Daniels I never said he should have stayed. I’m saying of all the knowledge and know how of how a team, culture, system, ethos that the Warriors was when he was there to not take and use any of that and decide he was the best person or should I say his bff Kyrie has the background to be a best available GM, coach, teammate, scientist, etc. The Warriors had the best in business top to bottom. Don’t ever let the inmates run the prison. That’s what the Nets became from very early on.

His move to leave GS has more to do with wanting to enjoy playing basketball on his terms rather than flat out succeeding. KD left to go to Nets to try and do things the right way. He wanted to be a part of something he built. At least he had the right idea, it just didn't work out. You're basically saying he should've stayed in a very easy situation to stack titles with no challenge. That simply wasn't what he wanted, and that's okay. He left and balance was restored.

It is really sad to see these young generation of players' attitude on "working" and "competition" is like this. To be honest, I would ask for a trade if I have to play with Kyrie, who hardly went to work, and Simmons, who married one of the owners who is about 25 years older than he is. It is sad to see all these nonsenses.

Kyrie destroyed this team. He played in 105 games over 3 years. Now he wants a Super Max contact. What has Kyrie done to get a Super Max. He refused the vaccine shot. He took a leave of absence without notifying the coach or the organization. He can't be trusted. The Nets gave Kyrie and KD everything they wanted. Kyrie needs to prove himself. His history in the league is not good. I'm sure the Owners will have some changes about the players behavior in the next collective bargain. KD is not a leader. To asked to be traded tell you a lot about KD.

@Warren France not excusing/nothing to do with him requesting a trade, but yall love speaking half truths today… we all know it was based off injuries (with KD)… The context/basis of Robert Frank’s comment was Kyrie wanting the super max, barely playing + his behavior on both the Celtics & Nets behind the scenes & he didn’t even mention on both teams they were performing better, with better results when he wasn’t on the floor… now we seen where they’ve gone (the Celtics) after time settled from when he left, let’s see if the same about the nets, they finna be in full rebuild mode diff situation than the Celtics tho

Yea. I agree. The nets did nothing wrong. You missed a whole season basically and they still gave you a max deal knowing you wouldn’t be available. Because your running mate can’t be dependable you decide you wanna leave. Weak af

Maybe KD knows something that we dont know. Maybe Kyrie told him something about this upcoming season and maybe him(Kyrie) sitting out as protest for not getting traded. We'll see as more details come out- and they will come out.

I’m not a KD fan. Going to GS was the weakest move I’ve ever seen. I can’t blame him for wanting out now tho. He came to help Kyrie win a title but Kyrie been on some BS the whole time. Nobody wanna deal with a teammate that’s not all in. KD did his part. This all falls in Kyrie shoulders. He’s the reason Harden wanted out and he’s the reason BK don’t wanna give him an extension. It’s a mess and that’s not what KD signed up for.

This just proves who the best player was. In Golden State Curry was the best player. Durant wherever he goes will not prove he can win a championship because he had to go to another team that he was not leading and he is just proving he cannot lead a team he doesn’t want that pressure
