    KD summed up: “I’m not as good as Lebron, never have been and never will be, period, EVERYONE knows it, and I can’t handle it.”
    KD will not be happy until he realizes and accepts the undeniable fact that he simply isn’t on the Lebron. MJ level. Perhaps if he LEADS two different teams who weren’t good until he got there to 8 straight Finals them we MIGHT consider mentioning him somewhere in the same vicinity or ballpark as GOAT James. But not until then.
    And KD doesn’t like Kerr because of Kerrs statement that MJ and Lebron are the two best players that he’s ever seen.

    He is justifiably unhappy. What he did was unprecedented and therefore people who think to do the same in future need to observe and take note....Its makes you happier when you build things yourself rather than jump on what others were building before. Which doesnt mean he should not be happy, it is good he is not happy as it would not be a good look for him to be happy with just being given 2 easy titles!

    Durant should just come out & say how he feels, all this double talk got him looking dumb. He hates Steph Curry, his place in basketball, his image & the way ppl praise him. Durant said he hated "ball movement offence" translation just give me the ball. He hated being "part of the team" and really thought by now he'd eclipse be THE guy in GS. His plan was to divide & conquer, to dismantle GS as we knew it. He wanted the Warriors staff & team to praise him & felt away when they kept it moving, considering they were all already winners.

    I think the Nets have a good shot to flourish with KD and he could lead them to that stage.
    But yes, Golden State is loaded and this makes move makes NBA More COMPARATIVE.
