After a 2021-22 season and a 2022 offseason full of drama, Kevin Durant is eagerly awaiting to move forward with the Brooklyn Nets.
Durant was asked a number of questions about the events of the offseason, to which he provided assurance he wants to remain in the franchise. He provided insight and clarity on what’s happened in the past and what could come in the future.
He also addressed his relationship with general manager Sean Marks and head coach Steve Nash. Durant addressed the elephant in the room, telling reporters that his frustration stemmed from inconsistency and roster turnover.
“There was a lot of uncertainty around our team last year. I committed to this organization for four years last summer with the idea that we were going to play with that group that we went on that run to the second round with (in 2021)…
“…I want to be in a place that’s stable and trying to build a championship culture and I had some doubts about that and I voiced them to (team owner) Joe (Tsai) and we moved forward from there,” Durant noted.
The Nets superstar also addressed the Brooklyn Nets’ fan during his time with the media providing assurance that he’s focused on winning with the franchise despite what was occurred this past summer.
“Nets fans should know me after three years. The work I put in — we’ve been through a lot and I still go out there and do my job. I don’t feel like I have to prove anything to Net fans after three years.
I’m committed to moving forward with this team, so if (Nets fans) got doubts, I can’t control that, that’s on you,” the veteran star concluded.
