Kevin Durant would never admit that he regrets making certain comments.
But the Warriors star probably regrets what he said to Trail Blazers shooting guard CJ McCollum back in July.
While appearing on McCollum's Pull Up podcast, Durant said the Blazers "aren’t going to win a championship" and told McCollum not to "worry about what goes on at the top of things."

Well, now the Blazers will meet the Warriors in the Western Conference finals, so they’re on the same level as the defending champs at the moment. And if Portland can upset Golden State, it will have a chance to win an NBA championship.
So, McCollum and the Blazers are making Durant eat his words.

Durant, who is recovering from a strained right calf, has yet to be cleared to play, but he will be re-evaluated this week.
Game 1 of the best-of-seven series between the Warriors and Blazers takes place Tuesday night in Oakland.
