It looks like the waters are still rocky off the coast of the Golden State.
Social media continues to be somewhat of a dangerous place for athletes, including a superstar basketball player such as Kevin Durant.
The internet noticed that Durant liked an Instagram comment mentioning a rumor that Draymond Green would be on the trade block once DeMarcus Cousins returns from injury.
Earlier this year, Durant found himself in the same situation when he liked a comment on an Instagram post calling Russell Westbrook “the problem” while both were teammates in Oklahoma City.
He later apologized for the liking the comment, saying it was a “total accident.”
Durant said his heated exchange with Draymond won’t have any impact on KD’s free agency and that he’s ready to move forward and put everything in the past.
““Nah, [it won’t factor],” Durant told Yahoo Sports. “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.”
Durant added: “I was upset, but I know that I can’t hold on to something like this. 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.”
Only time will tell if Durant and Green can mend their seemingly broken relationship, but until then the drama continues.
