Warriors had no problem leaving Kevin Durant on the team, says Bob Myers
The Golden State Warriors had no problem with Kevin Durant’s decision to leave the team last summer, according to the team’s GM, Bob Myers.
Myers and the Warriors wanted to sign Durant again last season, but the latter reached a four-year deal with the Brooklyn Nets.
However, Myers claimed that he only had positive feelings for the two-time NBA champion and the final MVP.
“The guy who came to our team was twice MVP of the final, two championships, three finals. What do you want to happen What do you expect from a human being? What’s the problem with that?
Everyone is so quick to see what’s wrong with a team, and I just focused – and still am – on what was right with all of these things, even if I lost. Even in the effort to win or lose, there are great experiences there … I liked the guy.
Lots of people … would say he shouldn’t have left or shouldn’t have – everyone tells him how to live his life … just because you don’t understand doesn’t mean he’s confused.
Players are allowed to do what they want, whether he or anyone else. In professional sports, you sign contracts and if you are free, you can do what you want. You can’t criticize anyone for that, ”said Myers said Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
