Kevin Durant hasn’t suited up for the Warriors since May 8th, and he won’t be playing this Friday night in a pivotal game four finals matchup where they are down 2-1 in the series. It’ll be a months time with barely any news about his calf injury. This tells me it is more serious than we initially thought and he may not come back for the finals at all. Keeping his injury severity quiet is the Golden State way to say thank you.
He’s leaving this summer, for some big dollar signs and a severe leg injury could cost him some of that money. Thanks to Kevin Durant the Warriors pathway to the finals were much simpler. Thanks to Kevin Durant the LeBron James led Cavaliers were just an annoying fly in the room, with life one day, but death the next. Thank you Kevin Durant for making the NBA less exciting than it could have been these last few years.
