Kevin Durant Responds To CJ McCollum's Criticism On Twitter

Adjust Comment Print

Kevin Durant is not buying C.J. McCollum's assertion the Portland Trail Blazers are championship contenders. Golden State NBA games this season.

McCollum told KD that he was "hot" when he found out about the Cousins signing. Many of Durant's Warriors teammates also chose to miss this two-day camp, for various reasons.

Apply to Blue Man Hoop.
. "Anything is possible. We can win a championship, bro" - Durant couldn't stop laughing. I done did the work, I done showed you what I do.

Durant: But so I'm the upset one because he responded to something I said? I gotta play you MFers all the time anyways as it is, over and over again. "I mean... you know you guys aren't going to win a championship".

McCollum: "We can have both of them". I like ya'll two (McCollum and Damian Lillard), you're hard to stop. But if you feel a way about it, then, I mean, I don't understand why. "You can be upset about this".

Durant's interactions with the media felt like a pseudo-therapy session (for him) as much as they did a campaign for his own justified reasons for clapping back at McCollum. Naturally, the subject of his brief Twitter tête-à-tête with Portland Trail Blazer guard CJ McCollum from Wednesday came up. I'd love to hear more about what makes him the way he is on Twitter, what compels him to burrow in his at-mentions and shield up the way he does. It drew laughs from the crowd, and a small smirk from Durant, but no real answers were ever truly found.

The Warriors star unleashed his frustrations with the media and "everybody running with" the things he chooses to say on social media after Team USA Basketball practice in Las Vegas on Thursday. The Trail Blazers had an impressive regular season a year ago as they finished with a 49-33 win-loss card before being swept by the New Orleans Pelicans.

Juve Target: I Want To Leave Man Utd
Speaking to a number of national newspapers, Darmian said: "I want to play more regularly. Obviously when I got to United, there was definitely something that wasn't right".

McCollum: "Some unfortunate situations happened in the first round".

KD: But how'd you play? Know what I'm saying?

There's a lot to unpack in this podcast conversation.

Reporter: No, I guess he was upset first. Maybe McCollum was mad about something Durant did.

"So, I would get into a gang fight, lose, plot on my brother for two months in our home and then go get the gang we lost to and beat him up?"

Durant faced plenty of scrutiny since leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder for the Golden State Warriors in 2016.

A Sirius radio host chimed in to agree with McCollum about Durant's switch to Golden State. Durant surely knows what it's like to be on a good team that just can't get over the hump, so he's enjoying his time on top.
