    Kevin, we don't care...STHU.

    This dude has to be one of the most insecure sports personalities that I have ever seen.

    I think his “fans” have changed more than he did

    When you work in a physically-demanding field, any injury is potentially career-ending; therefore, you're well-advised to make whatever you can, as early as you can. That goes for everybody from professional athletes to pipeline welders.

    I fully support (and would even encourage) college players leaving for the pros at their earliest opportunity just because of the possibility of a career-ending injury. It would really suck to see a multimillion-dollar career end while you're still playing for "free" at OU. You can come back and finish your degree after your injury.

    I think that most people fully understand and can sympathize with his reason to leave in free agency. The way he handled the situation is what lost him many people's respect.

    It's now two years later and he is still playing the victim through every media outlet available, using fake social media accounts to attempt to justify his actions, denigrate former teammates, etc. Like I said previously...he's an extremely insecure and immature individual. Kevin Durant was (and still is) a phony IMO. He hit the nail on the head.

    It is my personal opinion Mama Durant is responsible for that. She has done everything she could possibly think of to keep her cash cow close and it has messed with his self-esteem in a multitude of ways. He was bound to start acting out eventually. To be honest, I'm surprised it took this long.
