Kevin Durant instantly regretted joining the Golden State Warriors last summer. The backlash to Durant’s decision actually saw him call his agent and curse him out. Durant didn’t feel comfortable about the hate until his peers showed him love during the Olympics.
An interview from Durant and his agent with San Fransisco Magazine revealed the following:
The flak he was taking from people in Oklahoma City who had once professed deep affection for him was overwhelming. “To have so many people just say, ‘F— you,’ that really does it to you,” Durant tells me, still clearly anguished. “Because I truly had invested everything I had into the people I played for… And for those people that I know and love and trust to turn their back on me after I was fully invested in them, it was just… more than I could take. I was upset.
We were all messed up on jet lag,” Kleiman says, turning to me, “and I was up at 6 a.m. and he calls me and says, ‘Yo, are you up?’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah, what’s up?’ And he’s like [yelling], ‘Why the f— did you let me do this to my life?’ And I’m like, ‘Ohh s—, I’m coming over to your room.’”
That hotel was rock bottom,” says Durant.
No word if KD teared up when Russell Westbrook made that savage cupcakes Instagram post.
