Kevin Durant on Charles Barkley: I don't know why they still ask for this idiot's opinion

Now, in a recent Instagram post, Durant was less reserved in his criticism of Barkley. BasketballNews.com’s Etan Thomas posted about Barkley’s recent comment that NBA players “deserve some preferential treatment” when it comes to the COVID-19 vaccine because of how much they pay in taxes. “Yea, that’ll go over well Barkley smh,” Thomas wrote in the caption. In the comments, Durant responded: “I don’t know why they still ask for this idiot’s opinion.”
To say that Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban regrets letting Steve Nash walk away from the Mavs back in 2004 would be a complete understatement. So much so, that the billionaire still has one specific calendar note from nearly two decades ago that he’s refused to remove since that fateful day. Cuban recently opened up about how he continues to punish himself from what he considers to be the biggest regret he’s ever had as a team owner: “We made them what we thought was a great offer but Phoenix just came in and beat that offer,” Cuban said about the Mavs’ initial offer for Nash, via Etan Thomas of BasketballNews.com. “I’ll never forget it because he just called me up and he goes ‘They just offered me more than Mike Bibby’. You know Bibby just got a new contract and I have in town this calendar on my office still in the arena that I refuse to move and it’s still there and it says ‘Nash = Mike Bibby money’. My biggest mistake ever. Nash hated me for a long time because of it.”
Etan Thomas: He focused on their education, enforced discipline and structure, and educated them about society and being a Black man in America. He was a father figure in that he actually cared about his players far beyond wins and losses (although he definitely wanted to win). He made sure he stressed that his players graduate and not squander their time allowing the system to use them. Of course that was the coach and program I wanted to be a part of. Also, he coached one of my favorite players, Alonzo Mourning – someone who I wanted to pattern my game after. He also coached Patrick Ewing, one of my favorite players growing up (as a New York Knicks fan). I wanted to be able to block shots like Dikembe Mutombo and have defenses literally draw plans to avoid bringing the ball inside. I wanted to carry on the tradition and wear No. 33 at Georgetown (which is one of the reasons why I wore No. 33 at Syracuse, but I’ll explain that later).
