The Brooklyn Nets have been all over the place without their marquee scorer Kevin Durant. Managing to pose the longest losing streak of seven, and slipping to the 6th seed in the Eastern Conference. As a result of which, the Brookly Nets and Philadelphia 76ers have been up to talk about the potential trade of Ben Simmons and James Harden before the trade deadline of February 10. So, what are the thoughts of Kevin Durant on this matter? Those were revealed by Woj most recently.
As astonishing as it may sound, the Big 3 of Brooklyn Nets – Kevin Durant, James Harden and Kyrie Irving have only shared the court together in 16 games since the 2020-21 season. Now, with the whispers of the Beard partying ways getting louder, it seems like KD has come forward to reveals his true feelings upon the same.
What was opinionated by Kevin Durant?
“Here’s where Durant is on James Harden, I’m told,” Woj said. “He believed that they would win, could win multiple titles with Kyrie Irving and James Harden. That’s why Kevin Durant pushed so hard to get Brooklyn to make that deal with Houston last year. And he still believes that. But he also believes this very strongly: that Harden, everyone else in Brooklyn is going to have to be as committed to this as he’s been.”
Woj went on to say that Kevin Durant expects everyone on the Nets to be on the same page as him with regard to their level of commitment towards winning a championship. We all know how laser-focused Durant is and his strong play whenever he’s available, at least, serves as a clear testament to this fact.
That being said, there has been no team in NBA’s history who have been able to win the championship after posing a losing streak of seven games. Will the Nets be the first team in the league to do so? Remains to be seen. But first the drama approaching the trade deadline is going to be intense, especially to know alongside which player(s) Harden will be placed.
