The Brooklyn Nets hosted the Toronto Raptors on Friday night, the visitors took the win, but what stole all the attention was the situation with Kevin Durant on a strange night for one of the big stars in the league.
Input, Durant was not going to play due to the health protocols imposed by the NBA After being in contact with a possible positive case, he finally did play, but not as a starter and later, when the game was already in the third quarter, it was retired when it was confirmed that he had been in contact with a case of contagion.
Kevin Durant expressed his frustration through twitter with a couple of messages left for controversy, in one he posted:
Later he responded to another where he directly criticized the NBA saying:
“Your fans are not stupid, you cannot fool them with your PR tactics”
To KD’s frustration with the situation he experienced, we add that rHe broke an important streak of games played as a starter, accumulating 866 games, a brand second only to guys like Patrick Ewing, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul.
Everything indicates that Durant will not be in this Saturday’s game against Sixers and we will see how the NBA takes their messages through social networks.
