Magic Johnson shows his support for Kevin Durant and the Brooklyn Nets
After weeks of speculation and trade rumors, Kevin Durant has decided to stay in Brooklyn to honor his contract with the Brooklyn Nets. Owner Joe Tsai and the front office took a look at potential offers this summer but reportedly didn’t like any of them. The situation is being compared to Kobe Bryant’s predicament with the LA Lakers in the 2007 offseason when he eventually decided to stay with the franchise.
Magic Johnson tweeted after the Brooklyn Nets announced Durant’s decision to stay with the team:
“I’m happy to hear that Brooklyn Nets owner Joe Tsai worked out a deal with the dynamic superstar Kevin Durant and his agent Rich Kleiman that made KD happy and want to stay with the Nets to try to bring a championship to Brooklyn!”
Kevin Durant’s ultimate decision is certainly unconventional. He doesn’t appear to be a player who will throw a hissy fit or refuse to play. It appears that he will just accept the situation and decide to hoop.
However, the issue is much deeper than just Durant’s availability. He reportedly demanded that the franchise should choose between him or coach Steve Nash and general manager Sean Marks. It remains to be seen how Durant will sort out his differences with the coach and the manager in the coming days.
