        KD expects OKC fans to build a statue of him when he basically abandoned them to join the Warriors. The very same team that they were about to eliminate to get to their first NBA Finals. Seriously, they were 1 game away from beating GS and instead of running it back he jumps ship just 2 months later. Worst of all, he joined a team that clearly did not need him and was attempting to monopolize the NBA. How did he not know this was gonna leave OKC and the rest of the NBA fans with a bad taste in their mouths?? Stephen A is right, he just needs to own it and embrace the decision he made because he's clearly insecure about it.

          KD: I never choked.
          Blew a 3-1 and turnovers in G6 final minute wasn’t choking i guess. 😂😂😂

                        Of course he feels hurt....he feels guilty.....because he knows he cheeped his way out to achieve unearned NBA legacy.

                        He bailed on a city that was fiercely loyal to him since before day 1

                        Joined a championship dynasty that eliminated him in the playoffs,

                        Won two championship rings by coasting and reaping the fruits of Curry/Thompson/Green/Iguodala hard earned battle tested success.

                        Bails on the team that welcomed him to their dynasty to reap the rewards, because he didn’t fit in.

                        He then joins the Brooklyn Nets to join Kyrie Irving (who also happens to act how KD always acts...entitled to an easy route to cement his legacy. He believed he was better then LeBron and could win a championship elsewhere, but quickly realized how hard it is to get to that level of excellence to the NBA Finals.) and with DeAndre Jordan to prove to themselves that they can win a championship by earning it.

                        See as they now realize that their legacy is slowly getting tainted despite the fact that they both won championships with already Hardened Champions that earned their reputation....while of both KD and Kyrie merely reaped and benefited from the success with little work.

                        They will realize how they ruined their legacy because they won’t make it far in the they time they’ve figured how to play together time and age will catch up to them and no longer will they have the talent to implement new found experience, wisdom and knowledge to know how to win a championship.

                        They’re own legacies will be associated to the narrative that:

                        Kyrie coasted to a championship with LeBron James arguably the greatest player of our generation.

                        KD coasted to two championship with one of the top greatest legendary teams in NBA History to have ever played the game of basketball. Reaping a legacy that owns a prestigious record of 73-9 winning record and 4 championship titles in a mid to late 2010s.

                        Basically KD is entitled and is about to have a rude awakening that will quickly humble him and appreciate the NBA...because he will be living humiliation after that and will try to cope through life with it forever and always.

                          A. Villares if you think that kyrie thought that he was better than Lebron.... you don’t know what you’re talking about, why can’t that man be happy and play wherever he wants too? He has the right to do whatever he wants why should he stay unhappy in a unfavorable situation (from that season there was rumors that lebron was planning to dip and join another team and leave him with the scraps) why must kyrie deal with that?? Kyrie been preaching that he wants happiness and that’s what I think he’s achieving right now by going home ain’t nothing about being entitled at all

                        KD is a joke. Wasn’t a leader on either team. Definitely all the talent in the world but he’s a diva

                                Darant is the Antonio Brown of the NBA. Only in this sense, he's angry & wants to be apart of "something" where he's cuddled like A BABY, but wants to be THE MAN.

                                    KD literally talks about how he's treated by the media, but he's the one that keeps using the media to push narratives about him that we all know aren't true. He doesn't like when he gets push-back because he's a (say it with me) *C U P C A K E.*

                                      He wasn't drafted by okc but Seattle supersonics there's a fucking big difference. Stop confusing people Stephen A, and stop lying about KD by the way 😊.

You can never ever say that you hate something that gives you a life or takes care of your family. So what if OKC hates you you left your fault but never blame a organization that brought you in and took care of you and developed your skills like OKC did.
