Kevin Durant was widely regarded as one of the most promising players in the NBA back in 2016. Kevin Durant, who won the NBA Rookie of the Year award in 2008, made the move to San Francisco Bay where he lined up alongside Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Steph Curry in 2016. The NBA star won two titles while playing for the Warriors before suffering an ACL injury in the NBA 2018-19 Finals playing against the Raptors. While Durant bagged plaudits while playing for the Warriors, there were a lot of stories about his attitude off the court and a lack of camaraderie with his teammates. Outspoken Warriors GM Bob Myers fired a shot at Kevin Durant in a recent interview while talking about Steph Curry and co's 2018 NBA championship run.
