I guarantee KD wanted to play


But that's when the medical team and other personnel should be there to look out for players. Every player want to play in the FInals. Sometimes, they just can't, and shouldn't. There is noway you can tell me this injury (most likely torn achilles) is not due to the injury he has been nursing. This is just a very very bad look at the GS organization imo.

No one forced KD to play. Let’s put this nonsense to rest. The only person that makes that call is KD at the end of the day.

Remember when Kerr said earlier today that there was only a risk of reaggregating the calf? Lying sack of ****.

Naw. They almost certainly missed a strain or minor tear IMO.

Horrible. Genuinely feel terrible for KD. He gained a ton of respect from me tonight. Hope he makes a full recovery.

Might change the landscape of the league for years to come if it’s an Achilles tear (and not a strain).

Myers is such a drama artist. You knew what KD had and still put him in the game. Now you're gonna try crying your way out of it? Disgusting. Warriors put their interest in a championship ahead of a player's well being imo.

Judging by his emotional reaction, it's looking like a full rupture.... This is bad

Wow, feel bad for KD. He knew the risk but gutted it out anyway. You have to respect that...
