Report: Several Warriors think Kevin Durant will leave for Knicks
But it doesn’t directly affect most of us.
That’s different from current Warriors, who are trying to pull together an make another title run.
This is why Durant was wrong to lash out at the media for discussing his free agency. This isn’t a media-created sensation. Many people care where he signs – including his Golden State teammates.
Whether or not their suspicions get proven correct, their perception of the situation matters. If they believe Durant has a foot out the door – again, regardless of whether or not he actually does – that can adversely affect chemistry.
For Golden State to threepeat, it’s important to keep this drama on the backburner.
