Kevin Durant has always had the persona of a nice guy on and off the court. He always seems to maintain his composure. However, in recent games we have seen frustration get the best of the three time scoring champion. Over the course of three games, Durant has been given three technical fouls including two technicals against the Brooklyn Nets that resulted in his first ejection ever. Feeling that he let his fans down, Durant took to his Twitter and apologized for his recent performance. “3 techs in 3 games, not like me…@KendrickPerkins is a bad influence on my life lol jk..I will be better, sorry guys.”
It was a classy gesture by a great player and guy. However, could it be frustration setting in? Most likely. During that Brooklyn game, the Thunder weren’t playing well. They actually played horrible. I wouldn’t dwell on this. Durant is still a great player and more importantly respects the game of basketball. I wouldn’t look too into this. The Thunder still sits atop their division at 26-7.
