On Tuesday night, Kevin Durant was ejected for a league-leading 4th time. That is a big number due to the fact that during Durant’s last 10 season’s he was only ejected once. In a season where the players have not been shy about poor officiating, Durant’s rant is just the latest.
During Wednesday’s media availability Durant seemed to be more apologetic took back his comments. Durant told reporters that upon reviewing his actions he
“was being an a—hole last night, I was being a jerk… I shouldn’t have slammed the ball like I did.”
Durant also added
“I can go back and say I was being a jerk last night and I deserve whatever the league is going to throw at me,” an apologetic Durant added.
Durant has yet to be fined but he can almost certainly expect a letter from the commissioners’ office with a hefty fine attached to it.
