Kevin Durant Gets Heated With Reporters Over Possible Free Agency

Knicks'intend to keep De Andre Jordan potentially to recruit KD

He could go just about anywhere and turn them into an instant contender.

Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant lashed out at the media on Wednesday following reports linking him to a move to the New York Knicks.

Kevin Durant slammed sports media recently when he was incessantly asked why he remains reticent about his upcoming free agency this summer.

You've obviously been around the noise for so long. Is it louder this year? He just walk around here, don't talk to nobody. They then talk about if his rant is fair, or if Durant just needs to accept that this is how things are. Instead, he got petty and targeted an individual writer and said he didn't get Kristaps Porzingis traded. "I get it. At the same time, I wish it was more about what we do on the court, but I understand this is also entertainment to a lot of people". I play the right way, or I try to play the right way. You ask my teammates, my coaches, you rile up the fans about. C'mon man, grow up. Grow up. Yeah, you [looking at Strauss] - grow up. "I come in here, I don't cause no problems". I try to be the best player I can be every possession. I try to play the right way, try to be the best player I can be. And I think he's doing a great job of that.

Real Madrid's interest is the worst kept secret in football, with Hazard thought to be keen on signing for Los Blancos . Sometimes he needs a message from the coach in the press conference. "They speak the same language with the ball".

Even if you hate Durant, you have to give him props here for his honesty. I think you guys would agree he's been really good with media, with you guys. We all have moments of frustration, times in our life when we maybe don't feel like talking, maybe we're frustrated about something.

Clearly, Durant is among the athletes who believe their job is to play their sport and nothing else. While the nine-time NBA All-Star addressed most of the reporters during the interview, he called out Ethan Strauss of The Athletic by name.

Durant responded to the following statement, which essentially pointed out, 'We are asking about your absence because the fans are curious'. Is there too much media access required?

Kerr said he has spoken to Durant about the combative press conference but declined to reveal what was discussed, adding Durant should be given a "pass" for his actions Wednesday night. Something tells us that he and the NY media might not have the most harmonious working relationship.
