Durant tackles unruly fans

Durant, who scored 42 points Sunday in the 141-66 victory over Brooklyn, didn’t hold back with his comments about the recent behavior of some loud fans. At some point, fans have to grow up, Durant said, according to SNY. I know that the year and a half in the house under pandemic conditions made a lot of people nervous, caused a lot of people stress. But when you come to these games, you have to understand that these people are people. We’re not animals, we’re not in a circus. Your attendance at a game doesn’t just depend on you as a fan. Have respect for the game, for these people and for yourself. Your mom won’t be proud of you if you throw water bottles at the basketball players, spit on the players, or throw popcorn. Grow up and enjoy the game. It’s bigger than you. We didn’t even talk about it (the water bottle thrown at Irving). We know how these people live in Boston. We know how much they love Kyrie in particular. They still hold a grudge. That’s no reason for them to act like children, but we don’t need to talk about that. We already know what’s going on here. I’m glad we won. Hopefully we won’t have to come back here this year. Follow the Heavy on Nets Facebook page for the latest news, rumors and stories from Brooklyn!

Steph Curry bets on Durant

ESPN NBA’s Twitter account picked up a snippet of that quote and posted a tweet that obviously doesn’t capture the essence of Durant’s message. We know what these people are like in Boston….. We are glad we won and we hope we don’t have to come back here this year. -Kevin Durant pic.twitter.com/kizm61knPh – NBA on ESPN (@ESPNNBA) May 31, 2021 Chad Finn of the Boston Globe then made sure Durant’s message came across clearly by tweeting the quote in its entirety – not the worst version, as Finn wrote. Here’s the full quote, not the worst possible edit: https://t.co/pB9xnMj1Lb pic.twitter.com/MuIfDlpWzq – Chad Finn (@GlobeChadFinn) May 31, 2021 Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry Durant’s former teammate, heard about Finn’s tweet. He wanted to make sure Durant understood it too, so he tagged him in a tweet to that effect. @KDTrey5 https://t.co/XzdSpMEIuZ – Stephen Curry (@StephenCurry30) May 31, 2021 A fan asked Finn for his interpretation of the motive behind Curry’s tweet. In a comment, Finn said he was looking forward to reuniting with his former teammates who won two NBA championships together. I was pointing out the KD situation, I think, and how it was taken out of context. Honestly, I’m just happy to be able to help with the Superteam Warriors reunion in any way I can. – Chad Finn (@GlobeChadFinn) May 31, 2021 READ MORE: The Nets decided not to trade Spencer Dinwiddie, and he responded in hilarious fashion [LOOK].
