Kevin Durant delivers a championship trophy to his home town, at least for a day. This wasn’t the image of Kevin Durant being feted by his home town while holding the Larry O’Brien championship trophy and riding in a parade that Wizards fans hoped for when Durant was the league’s most coveted free agent last summer. Nevertheless, Durant, who signed with Golden State and helped lead the Warriors to their second title in three years, was the guest of honor Thursday at the first “Kevin Durant Day” in Seat Pleasant.
LeBron James may or may not be “100 percent” certain to leave Cleveland after this season, but the Cavaliers are reportedly already preparing for life without the King. According to Kevin Durant, James has more than earned the right to dictate the terms of any possible departure. Durant was replying to a tweet Wednesday from rapper Lil Dicky, who said, “If I’m Cleveland, I’m one thousand percent trading LeBron.” James actually has a no-trade clause in his contract, which also gives him the ability to opt out in 2018, but the Warriors forward took the tweet at face value, saying that the Cavs “can’t trade a legend.” “He is Cleveland, he gets to hold the cards,” Durant added.
Storyline: LeBron James Trade?
Durant then returned to his exchange with Lil Dicky, who had noted the acrimony between Cavs owner Dan Gilbert and James over the latter’s 2010 exit in free agency. “If I’m Gilbert, I’m getting something back this time,” the rapper said. “I feel what you’re saying,” Durant replied. “Most owners think that way, but then you realize it’s LeBron James.”
The dramatic Cleveland Cavaliers offseason has basically put the entire team’s future into question. Kyrie Irving wants to leave. LeBron James will be a free agent after this season, and some fans already think LeBron’s time in Cleveland is nearing an end. Kevin Durant and rapper Lil Dicky, who once featured KD in a music video, discussed just that on Wednesday.
