Kevin Durant just couldn’t find himself away from rumours and speculations. He is set to become a free agent this summer and we shall continue our reports on the latest NBA Draft.
Now, according to the Fox Sports reports the recent obsession with Durant has led us all into linking him with the San Antonio Spurs, the Golden State Warriors, the Boston Celtics, as well as his hometown Washington Wizards.
But all these speculations have led Durant to demand the LeBron James treatment during his free agency.
The Yahoo Sports writes, “Durant is looking forward to being recruited, to being courted, to being treated like the biggest free-agent prize since LeBron James six years ago. The chances of Durant sending a simple tweet again announcing his return are virtually nonexistent, but the Thunder remain hopeful that his decision, regardless of how this season ends, is the same.”
Last week when Durant went to Boston he was specifically asked about the city. The ESPN quotes, “The premise is easy to understand: Big market, big team, big future free agent. You can piece that puzzle together.” He even went on to say that he liked the city a lot.
He is an excerpt from News Everyday of what he said last week.
“I like the city a lot.”
“It’s cold but they love sports here. It’s a family atmosphere I feel when I walk around the city. So yeah, I like it a lot.” He continued saying, “Before this game I was hoping that everything goes well our last game so I could finally play here. It’s been three years since I played (in Boston), so, yeah, looking forward to it. They’re some of the best fans in the world and definitely support their team.”
So now, should we start relating him to the Boston Celtics instead of the Spurs?
You might want to hold on to that thought. But things are not looking to sway in the Celtics’ favour. Durant returned to Oklahoma City this week and said, “It’s home.” He further exclaimed, “It’s home.”
“I’ve always felt that this place meant so much to me,” he said. “It has a special place in my heart and my family’s heart as well. And we want to do our justice by giving back and giving to the less fortunate. That’s how I was raised, that’s how my mom taught me, how my grandmother taught me, is to give back. I’ve been blessed with so much I want to be a blessing on someone else.”
Chances are that he still stay with the City team.
