Kevin Durant Explains Why He Chose The Nets

Kevin Durant would like everyone to know that he has no hard feelings towards Golden State, revealing his reasoning in a new interview on why he left for Brooklyn.

The All-Star forward told Yahoo Sports’ Chris Haynes that he would have only picked the Nets, explaining, “They got the pieces and a creative front office. I just like what they were building.”

KD says no one from the Warriors pressured him to come back early from his calf injury in Game 5 of the NBA Finals, admitting it was his decision.

As for those Raptors fans cheering his Achilles rupture, Durant claims that he not only didn’t hear them, he jokes, “It will probably be the last time they will be in the Finals.”
