Kevin Durant has had enough.
He went on to say how Warriors fans won't ever accept Durant like they do the other players - when the offense doesn't work, it's KD's fault.
Despite winning two straight championships since then, including being awarded consecutive Finals MVP awards in the process, Durant has regularly defended his move and himself from critics both in interviews and on social media. Area fans may remember McCollum for scoring 30 points against Duke in the first round of the NCAA Tournament and leading No. 15 seeded Lehigh to an improbable first-round upset of the No. 2 seeded Blue Devils in 2012. "It's just because I do it", Durant said, via Yahoo's Shams Charania. However, in an appearance on The Lowe Post podcast (h/t Uproxx), Rachel Nichols of ESPN revealed that there were some people within the Warriors organization who thought Durant would leave the Warriors this offseason. Of course, I'm on my Instagram, on Twitter, just like the rest of my peers. "Snakes in the grass boy I tell ya", said Durant in a reply to McCollum's tweet.
"I should shut the [expletive] up, right?"
McCollum: "I can be upset because Cuz was a free agent, which means he could've - this is also why I was upset - he could've came to Portland".
McCollum: "You know how I felt, bruh, I was hot". I suggest you just keep playing man and don't worry about what goes on at the top of things. And you get used with what I said, but I'm the guy that's sensitive?
"Really, how's your word more valuable than mine? It's just because I do it". "CJ, I am going to have some wine with him in NY when he gets back from China and take a picture if you all really don't believe me". I just don't get it, and I know people will call me sensitive for even talking about it, but hey, that's just who I am.
While the tweets between Durant and McCollum have dominated the headlines, the podcast covered a wide range of topics from Durant joining the Warriors to the battles between the Warriors and Trail Blazers.
