Golden State Warriors‘ Draymond Green recently talked about landing Kevin Durant and how far he went to recruit him.
According to DG, he sent endless text messages to Durant in hopes of having him leave the Oklahoma City Thunder.
“ÔÇ£Once July 1 hit, I did. I had sent so many texts to him over those last three days, IÔÇÖm not sure the exact amount of number. I canÔÇÖt even give you a ballpark, I just know it was too many. But it worked, so IÔÇÖm all right with that.ÔÇØ (DraftKings)
Last week, Durant talked about the online backlash he received for leaving OKC for Golden State.
“All that stuff happens on the Internet. I haven’t had one person come to me and say anything negative. … It’s easy for the critics on the outside to tell you what to do, to tell you how to play. I’m the one that’s going through it, so I can’t really worry about the outside noise. The work don’t stop. Everything stays the same.” (The Vertical)
Recently, KD responded to criticism shot his way from former NBA legends Charles Barkley and Reggie Miller for leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder to join the Warriors.
“Those are two guys, you know? TheyÔÇÖve got a voice in our game, and a lot of people probably felt the same way, but they donÔÇÖt have a voice so obviously what they say is translated through a megaphone so it feels like everybody else, you know? If Charles Barkley said it, it must be true. If Reggie Miller says it, it must be true. It just feels like itÔÇÖs bigger than what it is. But they have such a big platform and people respect them so it feels bigger than what it is. But for the most part, I got the support around me. IÔÇÖve got the family that supports me no matter what, that love me no matter what I do. I could be playing tennis right now, and I could retire from the game of basketball and theyÔÇÖre still going to love me. So if I think about that, IÔÇÖll be fine.”

Earlier this month, CB scolded Durant for leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder to join the defending Western Conference champions.
“I’m just disappointed from a competitive standpoint because it would mean more to win one – just like it meant more to win one [championship] in Cleveland, it would mean more to Kevin to win one in Oklahoma than in Golden State. I’m not going to hate on Kevin Durant – I was real excited when LeBron went back to Cleveland because I knew it would mean more to that city. If Golden State were to win again it’ll be like, ‘Well, we expected to win. We just won a championship two years ago. We just won 73 games.’ … I think it’s a scapegoat move. You can use any words you want to. I think it’s a scapegoat move to try to ease your way into a championship. Let’s be honest, Golden State is probably going to win a couple championships in the next three or four years. Just like when they put that Miami team together, they were going to win a couple of championships because at some point it’s going to work and they’re going to be better because all these other kids are going to get weaker at some point also.” (“Mike & Mike”)
