  • Published: 08 October 2019
  • Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant showed up to Ebro in the Morning to have a conversation on why he decided to sign with the team, if he ever considered playing for the Knicks or his hometown Washington Wizards, his time with the Golden State Warriors, whether he feels he returned too early from injury and more.

    He also gave us an update on his health, and whether Nets fans can expect him to get on the court.

    Before leaving, he named his top 5 rappers right now & who he feels deserves more of the spotlight.

                          Listen everyone, please don’t twist what I am saying. KD is a great player. He simply isn’t the greatest. Y’all need to stop the madness. He is ranked 36th in scoring while Lebron is ranked 4th - just passed Jordan! Y’all off the hook. He ain’t even pass D Wade or Iverson or Reggie Miller blah blah blah. Plus he isn’t a leader and doesn’t make others better - look at OKC. Therefore he is overrated. Guys what I say is true not personal. He is still a great player just like D Wade and other great players but not the greatest or the best. Kawhi is even better

                          Bella yes I agree with you. His numbers took a hit and so did Klay’s numbers and also Curry’s numbers. He is a great player. If you read what I wrote, it will confirm that I’m only saying he is overrated. I don’t know how else to say it it he is. He is somehow the greatest or the best but he is not and that is an over statement. He is not a winner or a leader of others and doesn’t make others around him elevate. He had to join the record setting splash brothers just to win. How does that make him the greatest? Y’all only see personal stats for some reason. He is overrated

                          He couldnt win without Steph and Klay who are arguably better shooters than him. They are already proven and gave him their shots. They didn’t need him, just any other decent shooter. He needed them. GS handed him 2 chips.

                          940 Jae You would be the high school drop out cussing on my post because your mad KD is overrated. Kawhi is better. KD is not a leader. OKC was built around him and he failed failed failed them. Who cares about scoring titles? So I guess Tre Young is the best in the game since he leads the nba in scoring - morons. Scoring is a solo stat. Did they win? No. Y’all look pathetic and all in y’all feelings right now. KD does not make others better. He doesn’t make others elevate their game. He had to join 4 great nba record setting Allstars just to win. Smh. All truth

                                “I think that I’m a flawless basketball player”... I’m sorry but that goes to Kawhi. KD can’t lock down everybody like Kawhi does. I don’t care if he can shoot the ball from 30 feet consistently his defense most definitely lacks in some areas.

                                  What Ebro said at 4:25 is exactly why I can't listen to him at times. He outright lies. KD asks him why he doesn't play underground hip-hop on the radio. His answer? "It's not politics." Thanks for checking him Angie! This dude...all he worried about is money to that station...which I get, but don't lie about it. They PAY you to play mumble rap. You talking about people in their cars wanna hear this, that. It's the STATIONS that constantly force feed certain artists down the masses throats, and that's not politics? In the meantime, KD bumping the OG's of hip-hop on premium headphones like me and many of our gen. Anywho, I digress. On with the interview...

                                      KD says leaving a team is the nature of the sport. That is untrue. Nature of the sport and a true team mentality is loyalty. MJ understands the nature of the sport. These guys these days just want money or to play with their buddies. If your not one of their buddies then they will be looking to go somewhere else. Thats how the game is today. No more loyalty from teams or players. Teams used to have loyalty, then the players started doing all this and they literally are forced to do whats best for the team. Because you have plauers that could care less about "the team"

                                        U sound dumb bro? Why do u think Jordan never left chi? Cause that’s where the most MONEY was. Plus it was his best his best chances at another run after he retired with them adding Rodman. We know what KD can do. We saw that in OKC n Golden State. At this point in his career he’s just doing what he wants which is playing with Kyrie and with a flourishing young team w a good market. The NBA is a business

                                          Nah his legacy whether you like it or not will be “champion” and finals mvp. Lebron took an easier route too. Don’t compare how which was EASIER or whatever. He validated his decision when he carried them in the finals BOTH times. You as a fan don’t get to validate a championship because you can’t argue it
