Kevin Durant Denies Draymond Green Incident Will Impact His Free Agency

Published

on

Kevin Durant put an end to rumors surrounding Draymond Green exchange pushing him to leave Golden State.

According to an interview with Chris Haynes, Durant downplayed his argument with Green. He made it clear it had no impact on his upcoming free agency.

“Nah, [it won’t factor],” Durant said. “Because at the end of the day, I’m just a ballplayer that’s just trying to be in a great environment to play basketball and groom my skills every day. And I want to compete on a level that once the game starts, I’m just totally comfortable with my surroundings, with just going out there and being me.”

KD has a player option for the 2019-20 season that he’s expected to decline so he can enter free agency next summer.

“I never really felt like it was a problem, because I know Dray and he says some crazy [expletive] out his mouth all the time,” Durant told Yahoo Sports. “But on top of that, it was just that there was so much coming with it from the outside, and so much stuff that we have to answer now.”

Durant gave his perspective on his mindset after the confrontation.

“I was upset, but I know that I can’t hold on to something like this,” Durant told Yahoo Sports. “I know that I’ve got to make a choice with myself, like how long are you going to be upset about this to the point where you’re going to let it affect what you do on the floor or how you approach the game? Once it gets there now, I got to make a grown-man decision and tell myself, ‘Look, man, no matter what, you still got to come to work every single day. It’s going to work out. It’s going to figure itself out.’ And I think everyone’s been handling it the best way they could and we’re just trying to move forward with it.”

Dwayne Wade And Lebron James Share The Court One Last Time

Published

Dwayne Wade and Lebron James played their final game against each other in the Staple Center on Monday night.

This is a bitter-sweet moment that both players have been dreading since Wade announced that this would be he would be retiring at the end of the year.

James spoke to ESPN about the impact that Wade had on his career. “Obviously, without D-Wade in my career, I wouldn’t be sitting here with this résumé that I have,” said James. “Individually, I think I would still be doing my thing individually, but as far as me accomplishing the team goals that truly mean most to me? Twenty-seven wins in a row. Four straight Finals. Two back-to-back championships. It goes without saying. I wouldn’t be able to accomplish it without him.”

Wade had a chance to send the game into overtime, but Lebron was able to force him into a bad shot from the arch.

“He knew my move at the end that stopped me from getting to my shot,” Wade said. “That’s how well we know each other, man. Just two competitors who enjoy the game of basketball, who love each other and love competing. So I’m glad that in my 16 years that we were on the court together, we was in this game, we’ve made a big impact on and off the court.”

It was clearly tough for both players and great moment to witness.

With no timeouts and 60 yards to go, the Dolphins called a Lateral. The one play that even player dreams off pulling as a kid.

Gronk was back playing deep expecting a Hailmary. What he didn’t expect was for the team to go for a pull off three laterals. Kenyan Drake took a lateral 52 yards to the end zone. Drake was able to speed pass Gronk for the amazing play.

Dolphins won the game 34-33 with no seconds left on the clock.

Carmelo Anthony might be heading to LA.

A new report from  Joe Vardon of The Athletic, says Lebron James and his camp believe that Anthony, who was told by the Houston Rockets that he no longer had a future with the team just 10 games into the season, can help the Lakers if given the chance.

Anthony, 34, is estranged from the Houston Rockets – still on their payroll for the league-minimum $2.4 million but gone from the team after the two sides decided he was not a fit after just 10 games.

Melo can’t be traded until at least Dec. 15, and sources said there had been no request made by James to Lakers president Magic Johnson or general manager Rob Pelinka to make a deal for his friend.

Lakers are still trying to find the right pieces to surround James with. Let us know what you think about.
