Kevin Durant is a free agent next summer and the crazy stories are already coming out trying to forecast his future. Controversial ESPN pundit Stephen A. Smith stated that Durant was looking at joining the Los Angeles Lakers next year by saying the following:
“Regardless of how senseless it may (sound), in one breath I’m hearing that if Kevin Durant doesn’t stay in Oklahoma City, L.A. is his primary objective and landing spot as opposed to South Beach or even his home of Washington, D.C.”
Sounds difficult to believe considering how strong Durant’s drive is for winning and his laid back personality not being one desperate for the big market. Durant made Smith look like a fool by flat out calling him a liar.
Kevin Durant on the Lakers rumors: "I don't talk to Stephen A Smith at all. No one in my family, my friends do. So he's lying."
