    Will Kevin Durant leave or stay with the Warriors?

      I think he and and Klay should both stay free agents. They won't play next year anyway; why would an organization pay money to someone who cant play?

      He is staying now. But after the 2019-2020 season, he's a goner.

      KD should go to the spurs, they have a vacant spot if they believe in his injury. Or go to Lakers join LeBron.

      When your calf muscles do not work properly, the other muscles have to work harder in order to compensate for those injuries. And if he already had prior injuries to the Achilles it is only bound to rupture if you keep playing.

            Enough of the lies by teams about injuries. For the players protection the league must have teams tell the truth about injuires out of the gate. Enough of the lies to the media about player injuires.

              Your calf is your Achilles. It's the tendon of the muscle.

              They're essentially saying you hurt your knee not you ACL there's no risk to the ACL 😒

                        Not only is Kerr lying they got KD lying for them 😤 bc if the ice is on his Achilles and it clearly shows each time that it is then even the doctors knew, even his agent 🤦🏾‍♂️ people need to believe in karma she's an energy that returns yours

                            idk why people think kd would even come close to passing kareem. Only lebron can do that at this time. I'd be surprised if KD can reach over 31000 points at this point

                              Chris no credibility remembering your tweet questions that KD previous champion ships. You are the one who said KD is just not necessary you are the one who said Kd is Luxury and now you are trying to question about Kd injury people are sick of your nonsense lies saying you text kd for hours knowing that you don’t have his number no way to trust you any more.

                                      No one in the media said KD should play with an Achilles injury. Not unfair either for the media to question if golden state warriors was better without him. Warriors? KD? Agent? Someone there needs to take ownership for him playing

                                        Chris is exactly right. Its what I thought all along, the second scenario. He knew he needed surgery one way or another, and it was the achillies. But KD wanted to play if his team needed him, and keep Toronto guessing. My feeling is the initial injury was almost just as bad as the second. IOW its the same injury. Or at least surgery would be required. I think KD will be fine. He has a good all around game.

                                          Golden State values rings more then their players. KD achilles, Thompson ACL.

                                            I agree with you, but there are just “what if’s” with Klay. The guy was playing amazing and scoring very effortlessly. It was just unfortunate what happened. If Danny Green never bumped him and everything played out then we wouldn’t be here discussing this.

                                            @Edwiiwii with the hamstring injury as an athlete you start to over compensate and strain other muscles. If you see on the dunk he didn't have a lot of lift so the little bump through him off but fully healthy that never happens. Also If he tears that hamstring he's out a year. They just didn't have his best interests in mind. They just wanted another ring.

                                            I’ll give you KD, but Klay??? Did you not see what happened to him? He was fouled by a RAPTOR player on a play and landed very awkwardly which was unfortunate. Klay’s initial injury was his hamstring which doesn’t correlate to the ACL.

                                            I knew that was an achilles. I'm not a doctor. He never should have played. I don't know who's fault it is but Kawaii Lenard show's what a player has to go through when they are great and hurt.

The mistake they made this year was manegment got cocky and had a bunch of young uproven players. And by the way Congrats Raps you all played Great. All these fools writing GS off.
