Durant shook the entire NBA world at the start of free agency when it was revealed that he wants to be traded from his Nets to…just about anywhere.
Following that breaking news, we didn’t hear a lot of information from the Nets and it looked like a trade wouldn’t come together.
But Durant made his desires clear again just a few days ago, once again telling the organization that he wants to be traded or he wants the team to let go of head coach Steve Nash and General Manager Sean Marks.
This latest move got a lot of people talking – and they weren’t using the kindest words about Durant.
Kevin Durant not liking the Nets vision when they did everything to accommodate KD’s vision of the Nets is absolutely poetic, pathetic and 100% hysterical.

“Kevin Durant not liking the Nets vision when they did everything to accommodate KD”s vision of the Nets is absolutely poetic, pathetic and 100% hysterical,” Damon Bruce said on Twitter.
He’s not alone in that assessment: a lot of people are confused by Durant’s demands.
The Nets we see today are a result of Durant’s desires and his massive pull within the NBA.
When he was wooed by the team a few seasons ago, he made it clear that he wanted to play alongside Kyrie Irving – so the team moved heaven and earth to make that happen.
Again and again, the Nets have tried to create a team that would make Durant happy.
That obviously didn’t work.
Durant has every right to be frustrated with his team but he shouldn’t forget that he is the one that helped put it together.
