Kevin Durant On Kenny Atkinson: 'I Really Like His Approach To The Craft' 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sun Sep 29, 2019 12:27 am

Kevin Durant opened up about this reasons for signing with the Brooklyn Nets, saying it was obvious the organization was going in the right direction.


"It's not like I had to do any deep analysis of any player here. Just watching games and playing against them and seeing the continuity throughout the last couple of years, it was pretty easy to figure out what kind of team and what kind of organization this place is," said Durant.


Durant went on to compliment Kenny Atkinson's approach to the craft.


"I was doing a lot of YouTube research on Kenny Atkinson and watching interviews seeing how he talked after the game. I really liked his approach to his craft as a coach …. But once I started getting comfortable (with) how he coaches his craft, it started to make me feel at ease even though I never had a conversation with him. I could just see it through You Tube and clips that he was pretty genuine about the game," added Durant.

Wow, some pretty deep diving research from Kevin Silicone Valley Durant here. He sounds like the kind of guy who would invest in a monorail.

Nice...I love "YouTube research" how fast is everyone getting dumber? Durant...what a muppet.

What... No time to have a chat before you f#ing signed? Glad your YouTube research panned out otherwise Kenny might've been fired and replaced by the coach from Hoosiers.

BTW stop with "the craft" BS already...we know your witches, LeBron started saying it about 4 years ago...just say it KD "I'm a b....witch..."
