Steve Kerr defends Kevin Durant's heated exchange with media

Steve Kerr defends Kevin Durant's heated exchange with media

I have nothing to do with the Knicks, I don't know who traded Porzingis, it's got nothing to do with me.

"Now when I don't want to talk to y'all, it's a problem with me".

He implored the media to "grow up", and specifically directed his comment at someone in attendance and reiterated "yeah you, grow up".

Ask anyone with a vested interest in the National Basketball Association who the league's best player is and the answers will be different for the most part. "What's the problem? What am I doing to y'all?"

The perception among fans around the league is that Durant took the easy way out in order to achieve his success in the league, and pairing up with multiple All-Stars is not an effective way of solidifying oneself as the top player in the league.

"Kevin Durant is an interesting character but he has got to understand you can't blame the media when you feed the media".

Savage’s birth certificate says he was born in London borough
A third auto on the scene, which was operated by Kalil Smith , was reportedly found to contain an M4 rifle with a muzzle. As the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports, it is unlikely that 21 Savage will be allowed to attend.

KD: "So? Who are you?" "Tell me. Is that gonna help me do my job better? Nah". And so you just kind of have to deal with that and go along with that.

"I didn't feel like talking the last couple days", Durant said. So, everybody's trying to figure out what's going on. Yes, we all get paid for either our coaching ability or playing ability, but we also get paid to be part of the soap opera and the machine, whatever you want to call it.

"I just don't trust none of ya'll", Durant added.

Durant, who previously ripped media reports stating he wouldn't want to play with LeBron James, could be subject to penalty if he continues avoiding the press until next Saturday, when the National Basketball Association holds All-Star Media Day in Charlotte. "Every time I say something it's getting twisted up and thrown out and in so many different publications, trying to tear me down with my words that I say".

And it caught Kerr by surprise: "Even though he wasn't speaking with the media for the last week, I just thought he just needed a break". And then when I don't say nothing, it's a problem. That's all. Is that a problem?
