NBA: Kevin Durant is still clashed for his trade
While the Brooklyn Nets have settled the case of Kevin Durant, the latter continues to make NBA observers talk. Several franchises have tried their luck in this case, including the Boston Celtics. An eventuality that did not at all please Bob Ryan, famous columnist for the Boston Globe.
It is a soap opera that even after its end continues to make people talk. After making his trade request at the end of June, Kevin Durant finally decided to stay brooklyn next season. Through the voice of their manager, Sean Marksthem net announced a few days ago that Steve Nash and I, along with Joe Tsai and Clara Wu Tsai, met Kevin Durant and Rich Kleiman in Los Angeles yesterday. Together, we agreed to continue our association. We are now focused on basketball, with one goal in mind: to build a franchise that lasts to bring the title back to Brooklyn.. »
Nets didn’t want to sell Durant
For lack of satisfactory offers for the New York franchise and for him, Kevin Durant was therefore forced to reconsider its decision. This scenario would have been the one envisaged by the net from the start, according to information from Shams Charania : “ the Nets set an incredibly high price because they didn’t really want to trade Kevin Durant. I heard from many executives that Brooklyn didn’t want to move KD, which explains this very high consideration. Despite that, I still think teams like the Boston Celtics, or even the Toronto Raptors had a real chance of signing him. “, did he declare.
“I have no desire to win with this stupid face”
Among the franchises that have tried their luck in this file, there are in particular the Boston Celtics. The latter had proposed a package comprising Jaylen Brown, Derrick White and a first-round pick. An offer rejected by netwho wanted Marcus Smart is included in the trade. An eventuality not at all to the liking of Bob Ryan. The famous columnist, formerly at Boston Globegave his opinion on the possibility of seeing Kevin Durant arrive in the Massachusetts and he didn’t go overboard. ” I don’t need him! I’m happy like that! I don’t want to win with him. I don’t want to support him. I prefer to support the group that we currently have, and that we have seen being assembled and growing together. Plus, now that we’ve added (Malcolm) Brogdon and (Danilo) Gallinari, I love this team! I have no desire to win with this stupid face! And I honestly think it is! “, he confided in the podcast of CLNS.

“I don’t want to win with this guy”
Bob Ryan has followed : ” most people don’t look that far, and they just want to see their team win, no matter who the players are. Me, I’m sorry, but I must have lived too many titles. I’m lucky ! But I don’t want to win with this guy. Fuck him! Let’s keep the group we have. He is good enough to win on paper, knowing that we were two games away from winning in the last Finals. I don’t want to win with this guy! “Statements that should not please Kevin Durant.
