Knicks'intend to keep De Andre Jordan potentially to recruit KD

I don't cause no problems. I play the right way, or I try to play the right way.

The conversation regarding the best active player in the National Basketball Association usually revolves around a handful of players. And I think he's doing a great job of that. "Most people within the Warriors either think Durant is leaving or profess not to know one way or the other", Strauss had written, echoing the Bleacher Report's Howard Beck, who quoted an unnamed National Basketball Association executive who said the Knicks' trade "means they're pretty sure they're getting KD".

"I just don't trust none of ya'll", Durant added.

"It's unnecessary", Durant said of all the noise surrounding his decision.

He just give his whole opinion on stuff and make it seem like it coming from me. Just walk in here, survey and then write something like that, and then now y'all piling on me because I don't want to talk about that.

Asked to comment on Golden State's form following their 141-102 win, Durant abruptly walked out of the press conference. Dealing with the media is part of his job.

Speculation over Durant's future has intensified during the free agency window after the Knicks traded Kristaps Porzingis and other players to the Dallas Mavericks on February 1. "Every time I say something it's getting twisted up and thrown out and in so many different publications, trying to tear me down with my words that I say". So, if I don't say nothing, it's a problem. "We talk all the time, just like I do with all the players". "I just ain't feel like it". That's all. Is that a problem? Durant already draws tons of criticism online for absconding to the Golden State Warriors as a free agent, so Kanell and Botkin discuss whether or not Durant is treated fairly.

"All right. I'm done".

While some have couched the Durant saga as a media boycott, he has conducted one-on-one interviews, eschewing press conferences and group sessions after shootarounds and games. Someone like him, especially a legitimate superstar like him, should also know that there's a lot more to today's NBA than just playing basketball, which is an element of the sport from which Durant and a whole host of NBA stars benefit. "Naw, man. I didn't feel like talking".
