Everyone that watches the NBA knows that the Golden State Warriors are the current kingpin of the league. After winning three championships in four seasons, Golden State is in the midst of a dynasty. But a lot of that has to do with Kevin Durant, who has been a huge reason for two of those titles.
After leaving Oklahoma City for Golden State in the summer of 2016, Durant became the most-hated man in the league. The former MVP was joining the team that stopped him from making his second trip to the NBA Finals at the time. Now two titles and Finals MVP’s in, Durant is garnering more disgust with his decision.
Add Browns defensive end Myles Garrett to that list of those disgusted.
Garrett, in his second year with Cleveland, was on 92.3 The Fan on Thursday morning and had some choice words for Durant and his antics.
“If I were him I would’ve never made a move like that in the first place,” Garrett told Ken Carman and Anthony Lima, the two hosts of The Ken Carman Show With Anthony Lima. “Me, I’m too competitive to try and ride on somebody’s coattails to get a W. But for him, you might as well stay at the spot you’re at now. There’s no point in leaving since you’ve already taken that moniker where he’s been called the snake and cupcake and all that. You might as well stay and just keep on winning.” [h/t cleveland.com’s Mary Kay Cabot]
While Garrett isn’t the first to speak out on the matter, it is to no surprise that a Cleveland athlete would be vocal considering the NBA Finals just ended. It sure helps Garrett’s case for being one of the most likable players in town.
