@Waldorfsfinest then directly asks KD: “You couldn’t score 81 if you were jacking up shots like Kobe?” Durant responds with a series of Tweets, basically defending the degree of difficulty of scoring 81 in a game. Translation: This stuff isn’t easy. The NBA is hard. Give Kobe his props. Oklahoman

When you sensed that lack of energy and said Durant wasn't himself, did you or Coach K or anybody on the staff have a conversation with Durant about it? Jerry Colangelo: We kind of looked at it and, in conversation with him, never addressed that issue, but asked him questions: 'Everything OK? How's it going? Anything on your mind?' Of course, there's been a lot of things circulating about his business dealings. New representation, Nike, Under Armour negotiations, just a lot of stuff. And Kevin's the kind of guy, at least in my relationship with him and getting to know him, he doesn't need a lot of clutter in his life. CBSSports.com

He loves being on the floor, and he loves to play with great passion. And if he's not playing like a free spirit, which is who he is, that's a load on his shoulders.

Kevin Durant's rumored move to Under Armour appears to be a foregone conclusion, multiple sources with knowledge of the negotiations told InsideMDSports.com.

Sources told IMS earlier Under Armour's proposal could be as high as $325 million over 10 years. InsideMDSports.com
