Durant blasts media amid free agency, Knicks rumors: 'Grow up'

A typical answer followed. "And especially when certain narratives have been created in terms of where you are in your career". In reality, Durant's abnormal silence has been louder than likely anything he would have said in the nine previous days.

"I don't think about that type of stuff, that's your job", Durant said. The Los Angeles Times reported the Knicks are the favorite among National Basketball Association executives to land Durant in free agency.

Then Durant, visibly frustrated, uncorked a long response at the media and the reports attached to his free agency. They got nothing to do with me. Now y'all piling on me because I don't want to talk about that.

The postgame fireworks went off as Durant broke his silence over speculation that he would land with the Knicks, who traded young star Kristaps Porzingis to the Mavericks last week. It has nothing to do with me. Let us play basketball, that's all I'm saying. Y'all come in here every day, ask me about free agency, ask my teammates, my coaches. "Now that I'm not talking to you all, it's a problem with me". Come on, man. Grow up. Strauss also wrote that Durant was taken aback that he wasn't vaulted over LeBron James after his performance in the 2017 NBA Finals. Grow up. Yeah, you, grow up. I come in here and go to work everyday, and I don't cause no problems. Well, I try to play the right way. I try to be the best player I can be every possession. And then when I don't say nothing, it's a problem. KD, who was "tired of being second" way back in 2013, was still stuck there reputationally, even in ultimate victory.

The letter follows concerns raised past year by the Huawei Cyber Security Evaluation Centre (HCSEC) in its annual report . Australia and New Zealand have joined the USA in banning the use of Huawei products in their 5G mobile networks.

I know that people criticize athletes no matter what they do, but I appreciate Durant's bluntness here. I think everybody here has done a great job of that. "I didn't feel like talking".

The main thing that the media should do is help the fans understand the game that they just watched or about what is happening in practice that week or how the player is dealing with an injury that may have occurred.

Luckily, though, what would have normally commanded a week's worth of nationally syndicated coverage was just a blip on the ticker as players around the league where on the move like Carmen Sandiego. "Every time I say something, it gets twisted up and thrown in so many publications try to tear me down with my words I say".
