I’m taking two weeks of vacation starting tomorrow and I’m going to try my damndest not to do a single piece of work in that time. In other words, expect resolution on the Kevin Durant situation by noon tomorrow. – 9:14 PM

The KD ruined the league talk by going to the Warriors is always so funny to me especially when looking at ratings. The first year he went to the Warriors, the NBA finals had the most viewers since 1998 & the 2022 Finals had 3M less viewers than KD’s last season with GS. – 11:23 AM

More on this storyline

If Durant hasn’t been traded by then, there is a growing expectation in league circles that he will continue trying to cause as much of a ruckus behind the scenes to try to prod the Nets into lowering their asking price at last to facilitate a deal. If it wasn’t apparent by now, he really wants that trade to Phoenix or Miami or maybe even Boston or Philadelphia, no matter what it does to his reputation when he hasn’t played a single game yet under the four-year, $194 million contract extension signed in August 2021. -via marcstein.substack.com / August 15, 2022
