“Golden State made it to the finals, replaced him with Andrew Wiggins and didn’t lose a shot” Kendrick Perkins believes Kevin Durant will have to deliver for the Brooklyn Nets anyway if the Warriors win the NBA title
Kevin Durant had perhaps the most exciting season of any player in the NBA. The Brooklyn Nets were formed with the intention of making an immediate championship run, but their dreams were dashed by teams that were just way, way stronger than them chemistry-wise. Unfortunately, they are eliminated from the playoff race after being swept in the first round.
In the first half of the season and before the injuries, the Nets seemed like a top contender from the Eastern Division, briefly securing first place before edging around the top 5. Kyrie Irving’s absence didn’t seem to be an issue for them as James Harden and KD were in control of win consistency. Although Irving’s absence did not affect the team, he mused the Bart about continuing with a roster he felt was too relaxed.
Why did Kevin Durant leave the Golden State Warriors?
Many people believe Kevin Durant may have left the Warriors after watching all hell break loose over their physical health against the Toronto Raptors in 2019. Finally, speaking about his departure, he said: “I felt like it was time for a change. I wanted to play for a new team.” He also said he wasn’t worried about what he was leaving or even the winning situation he was in at the time.
He later got candid about the event on Draymond Green’s podcast. He said there have been a number of issues with the franchise and the team. He also explained that while there were issues between players, the franchise or the front office hadn’t handled it well, which is why he felt he had to go into a much more welcoming situation.
Kendrick Perkins says Kevin Durant has a lot to prove next season
Kendrick Perkins spoke about what Kevin Durant has to prove without him after the Warriors’ recent success. “Kevin Durant will be under the most pressure next year, especially if the Golden State Warriors win the title. It was his decision to leave Golden State. They made it to the final, replacing it with Andrew Wiggins and not losing a stroke while still healthy.
“Well KD, the performance all season against the Boston Celtics was terrible. He will have the most pressure. All eyes will be on him and what he’s doing with this Brooklyn Nets organization and how far he can go.” It seems the pressure is still on the former two-time MVP’s shoulders.
