Kevin Durant’s season came to an end after tearing his Achilles in Game 5 of the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors.
KD went down at the beginning of the second quarter. His teammates walked him to the locker room as he limped in pain. After the game his injury was confirmed by Warriors GM Bob Meyers.
“Dub nation gonna be loud as f— for game 6. I’m hurting deep in the soul right now I can’t lie but seeing my brothers get this win was like taking a shot of tequlia, I got new life lol.” wrote KD.
Klay Thompson spoke about the impact of KD after the game. “All those talking heads that say we’re better without him, that’s ludicrous, that’s crazy, this is the best player in the world.”
