NBA players react, send love to Kevin Durant after Game 5 injury
It was devastating to anyone who is a basketball fan.
Just 12 minutes into his return from a month off with a calf strain, Durant tried to plant for a drive, then went to the ground grabbing his leg.
Outside of a couple of idiot fans in Toronto that cheered at first (they were waived down by the Raptors players and eventually the majority of the crowd applauded and chanted for KD as he walked off), everyone felt for Durant, who pushed himself to get back on the court in the Finals only to go down.
That includes NBA players. Here are some of their reactions.
MAJOR RESPECT for KD wanting to rush back and try to help his team win a Championship... Get Back Healthy Bro🙏🏽— Trae Young (@TheTraeYoung) June 11, 2019
