Kevin Durant spoke with the media and expressed his opinion on whether the Golden State Warriors play better without him.

Here is what the two-time reigning NBA Finals MVP told reporters:

“That’s not facts. It’s been that way since I got here, that it’s the Warriors and KD. I understand that, and I felt like my teammates and the organization know exactly what I’ve done here off and on the court to become a part of this culture, stamp my flag in this culture and this organization.

I know what I bring to the team, but I also know a lot of people on the outside don’t like to see us together, and I get it.”

The two-time defending champions have won five straight playoff games since Durant got injured on May 8.
