Former Michigan State star Draymond Green comments on Kevin Durant saga
Former Michigan State basketball player Draymond Green commented on Kevin Durant’s recent beef with the Brooklyn Nets on his podcast ‘The Draymond Green Show’ per Chris Rosvoglou of The Spun. Durant is looking for a new team after requesting a trade recently.
One of the problems with Durant wanting a trade is that he is still locked into a 4-year contract. Green and Durant last played with each other on the Golden State Warriors in 2018. Durant averaged 29.9 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 6.4 assists last season for the Nets.
Green was supportive of his former teammate, calling the NBA’s reaction a double standard:
“If Kevin Durant says, I actually don’t wanna be here anymore, I wanna go to somewhere else, why does it matter? Why does that make you weak? Why does that make him – means he’s running from something? I don’t understand that,” Green said. “That’s the next step in his career. Again I always go back to saying if someone leaves Google to go to Apple after three or four years, and then they leave Apple after two years to go to Tesla… No one is going to say that person ran.”
