Kevin Durant Quits Team USA for Emotional Reasons

Kevin Durant Team USA FIBA

If I had a 10-Year, $350 Million deal from someone sitting on the table from Under Armour like KD and I just saw Paul George’s bone sticking out of his leg, I’d be emotionally stressed to about playing for Team USA too.

KD has a lot of on his mind.  The shoe deal, the KD Watch 2016 and then seeing a teammate leg shattered, it might be best he takes a little time off the grid.

That spotlight is hot, he needs to chill and cool off for a bit.  OKC has a two-year window to win a championship before I believe he leaves, so they are probably happy he decided to quit the team.  They need him focused and ready to go when the season starts.

Here is what KD had to say.
