Kevin Durant Describes the Environment Surrounding LeBron James as 'Toxic'

Kobe Bryant Takes Massive Shot At Warriors & Their Bandwagon Fan Base Kobe Bryant takes shot at Warriors fans 'who came out of nowhere'

Following that, they will play six of their next seven games away from Los Angeles.

Among the multitudinous NBAers asked about the topic, Kevin Durant had some noteworthy ideas. Instead of people asking "why couldn't Durant go prove himself elsewhere with the Lakers", people will say, "he couldn't join that toxic situation".

Durant thinks it's much easier for role players to fit in with LeBron. It's not LeBron's fault at all; it's just the fact you have so many groupies in the media that love to hang on every word. Even the beat writers just fawn over him. "I think the difference here is that you have a collection of players with a lot of talent all young". "The tough part is when I'm on the road and they're doing those things as well, so that's a tough part, but the availability when I'm here and they're working, I get to relax-a little bit". Especially when the attention is bulls-- attention, fluff. So we got guys who just want to continue to develop and guys that continue to get better and better just from experience.

A subsequent email suggests users wouldn't need to be prompted to give permission for this feature to be activated. It deliberately made it harder for users to be aware of this happening in order to avoid bad PR, the MP stressed.

"It depends on what kind of player you are", Durant told Bleacher Report, which published its story early Wednesday. "Like, young players that are still developing, it's always going to be hard because he demands the ball so much, he demands control of the offense and he creates for everybody".

As basketball fans well know, there are a number highly coveted All-Stars set to become free agents in 2019, including Kevin Durant, his teammate Klay Thompson and Kawhi Leonard. Because Kyle Korver in Atlanta was the bulk of the offense, and he's not a No. 1 option at all, not even close.

But that doesn't mean James, who hasn't missed more than eight games in a season since 2003/04, believes the extra rest will help him much. Moreover, LeBron's style of play doesn't bode well for players used to having the ball in their hands.

In a medical first, baby born from a deceased donor uterus transplant
Currently, only 10 known cases of uterus transplants from deceased donors exist, but all had failed to produce a live birth. Her uterus was removed and transplanted into the 32-year-old during a complex surgery that lasted 10 and a half hours.

After rebuilding through the NBA Draft, the Lakers eventually established a talented young core that was enough to lure the game's best player in the first of a two-year window to make a splash in free agency. "They don't need another guy".

"He's very unselfish. He's won multiple championships with other superstars. He's a victor and he's an incredible player and he's unselfish", he said.
