Charles Barkley has called Kevin Durant a ‘bus rider’ on a number of occasions. Most recently he said that the pressure is on the two-time NBA champion to bring a title to Phoenix.
Durant says that he has nothing but respect to Barkley for what he accomplished as a player, but he does not agree with his analysis.
According to the Suns superstar, the term ‘bus rider’ only stuck because it was specifically used to describe him.
“He’s a f*cking legend that I’ve got nothing but respect for… I’m gonna play with pride knowing that he put blood, sweat and tears into this organization. … As an analyst, I don’t really fuck with your approach,” KD said, via Boardroom.
