  1. KD is injury prone because he rather sit out of games than helping his teammates. Because it's more about his teammates helping him than him helping his teammates. Because KD is obviously not a team player and that's why.

  2. I'm glad KD in Brooklyn. I enjoy watching him play. But I can tell you this. SAS ain't lying. After assembling a team like that together with that offense, he better win it all if the big three is healthy come playoff time. If not he will never live it down.

  3. He went to Brooklyn so he don't have the pressure of being a New York Knicks win that championship nothing less look what happened if they just lose a game to the New York Knicks in the regular season the reaction

  4. What is amazing is how all u people in these comments plus Max and Steve some how can read KDs mind and down talk him for living his own life…But ya'll not about to let another mf dictate your life…smdh…

  5. Who cares what KD thinks? He joins another stacked team that doesn't play defense. Nash and D'Antoni system is more offense oriented. We know defense wins games come playoffs. Offensive strategy Still hasn't proven to win chips. Well see come playoff time.

  6. "You gotta close the deal". Didn't Durant close the deal already TWICE on LeBron's head? Durant came to Golden State and took over, he didn't just hitch a ride to a championship.

  7. KD, just like LeBum, is all about stacking the team and then thinking it's big deal if you win a ring. Show us process in normal team. Imagine bragging about the process when you have 4 all stars on a team. Woow, so hard. Kobe's late 2000s Lakers were a process, Dirk's MAVS were a process, pre-KD GSW were a process. Now it's not a process, it's just buying a ring and taking easy way out. What Utah and Bucks were doing for the past few years is a process. What Denver, Sixers and Celtics were doing for the past 5 seasons is a process. I hope one of these teams wins this year, NBA would be much better.

  8. Stephen A does not believe anybody. KD is telling you how he feels. KD don't care about Stephen A Smith believes or etc.

    Stephen A swears he knows what everyone is saying. Mama Durant be putting him back in place

  9. Those 2 titles got the media off KD’s back in the sense of becoming an NBA champion. He’s accomplished that. If KD wants all-time top 10-15 status though, he needs a title somewhere other than GS

  10. KD is moody, and sensitive and so what…aren't we all , aren't we all KD because he's a superstar not entitled to express his honest sincere feelings about his approach to the game with out alot of misrepresentation. KD is what a true champion is all about…even after winning 2 chips and MVP's he constantly wants to improve his game and develop…what more can you ask for in a player…or of anyone in any endeavor

  11. If KD was about the process they would never have gotten Harden. If would have been him and Kyrie with all those surrounding pieces they had building something. They got Harden with a championship in mind
