Durant blasts media amid free agency, Knicks rumors: 'Grow up'

Kevin Durant Shows that the Noise Still Gets to Him Tells Media to'Grow Up

We now take you to a real-time view of the Kevin Durant recruiting room, with the Knicks playing the part of Frank and the Clippers filling the role of Annie. I think you guys would agree he's been really good with the media, with you guys. And now when I don't wanna talk to y'all, it's a problem with me.

In reality, Durant's abnormal silence has been louder than likely anything he would have said in the nine previous days. Come on, bro. I come in here and go to work every day. Perhaps the fallout from this tantrum will be overshadowed by Thursday's National Basketball Association trade deadline, but Durant certainly didn't do much to nip this in the bud by acting the way he did.

"Durant was particularly incensed by a controversial article by The Athletic's Ethan Strauss which suggested many figures around the National Basketball Association believe Durant is headed to the Knicks, prompting the 6'10" superstar to call out Strauss by name.

Asked to comment on Golden State's form following their 141-102 win, Durant abruptly walked out of the press conference. "Naw, man. I didn't feel like talking".

As hard as Durant and the Warriors have tried to push the speculation away, the reality is that his free-agency decision has hovered over everything the group has done this season.

It's part of the grind that can wear down a player, something Durant alluded to. I don't think about that kind of stuff. We want to see that KD every day. So all the other stuff, I wouldn't call it a distraction, it's just more so from his standpoint frustrating. Sources say that Durant believed his besting of LeBron James in the 2017 Finals would get him hailed as the game's top player, a mantle he's craved for some time.

Patrick also warned Durant that he must treat the media with more respect.

"Kevin Durant is an interesting character but he has got to understand you can't blame the media when you feed the media". Tell me. Is that going to help me do my job better?
