The Golden State Warriors had no problem with the decision of Kevin Durant to leave the team last summer, per the GM of the team, Bob Myers.
Myers and the Warriors wanted to re-sign Durant last offseason, yet the latter reached a four-year agreement with the Brooklyn Nets.
However, Myers claimed he only had positive feelings for the two-time NBA champion and Finals MVP.
“The guy came to our team, was MVP of the Finals twice, two championships, three Finals. What do you want to happen? What do you expect out of a human being? What is the problem with that?
Everybody is so fast to look at what’s wrong with a team, and I was just so focused on — and still am — on what was right with all those things, even in losing. Even in the effort you make to win or lose, there are great experiences there…I liked the guy.
A lot of people…would say he shouldn’t have left or he shouldn’t have done this — everybody’s telling him how to live his life…just because you don’t understand doesn’t mean he’s confused.
Players are allowed to do whatever they want to do, whether it’s him or anybody else. In professional sports, you sign contracts, and when you’re free you get to do what you want to do. You can’t criticize a guy for that,” Myers told Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
