Kevin Durant referred to the incident with Draymond Green, stating he has to let it go and move forward.
Here is what the Warriors’ star said, per Yahoo Sports:
On the altercation with Green: “I never really felt like it was a problem, because I know Dray and he says some crazy [expletive] out his mouth all the time.
But on top of that, it was just that there was so much coming with it from the outside, and so much stuff that we have to answer now.”
On how he is planning to deal with this: “I was upset, but I know that I can’t hold on to something like this. I know that I’ve got to make a choice with myself, like how long are you going to be upset about this to the point where you’re going to let it affect what you do on the floor or how you approach the game?
Once it gets there now, I got to make a grown-man decision and tell myself, ‘Look, man, no matter what, you still got to come to work every single day. It’s going to work out. It’s going to figure itself out.’ And I think everyone’s been handling it the best way they could and we’re just trying to move forward with it.”
On whether this incident will affect his decision to remain with GSW: “Nah, [it won’t factor]. Because at the end of the day, I’m just a ballplayer that’s just trying to be in a great environment to play basketball and groom my skills every day.
And I want to compete on a level that once the game starts, I’m just totally comfortable with my surroundings, with just going out there and being me.”
