Steve Kerr talks at length about Kevin Durant's awkward media session

Kevin Durant lashes at media amid Knicks rumors

He implored the media to "grow up", and specifically directed his comment at someone in attendance and reiterated "yeah you, grow up".

So, it makes sense that Durant would want to silence the media, and I think he made his point crystal clear. And now when I don't wanna talk to y'all, it's a problem with me.

There has been nonstop speculation about what's in the future for Durant, and if he'll be sticking with the Warriors for the long haul. I come here to work every day and cause no problems. The topic of the day was Kevin Durant's postgame press conference on Wednesday, but the conversations were really about much more than that.

The two-time National Basketball Association champion has chosen not to speak to reporters since before the New York Knicks traded away dominant bigman Kirstaps Porzingis last week, in a move that clears out enough cap space to chase Durant and another free agent this summer. "Most people within the Warriors either think Durant is leaving or profess not to know one way or the other", Strauss had written, echoing the Bleacher Report's Howard Beck, who quoted an unnamed National Basketball Association executive who said the Knicks' trade "means they're pretty sure they're getting KD". Initially, Durant asked reporters why they cared that he hadn't spoken but then acknowledged that he just didn't want to talk recently.

Dozens of political parties that make up Venezuela's opposition have failed to mount a viable political challenge. It's unclear what will break the standoff playing out at the Venezuela-Colombia border.

However, the regular season Warriors are not of interest to just about anyone outside of Oakland. "I didn't see any of that coming what happened last night".

It's part of the grind that can wear down a player, something Durant alluded to. He reportedly called Durant a "b--" and said, "We don't need you".

What also seemed to have triggered Durant's emotions was a column written by the Bay Area News Group's Dieter Kurtenbach, in which Durant's future with the Knicks was discussed. Will it help me do my job better... Durant, who is active on social media, spent Sunday liking many tweets that opposed the article. "I didn't feel like talking".
