That is an awful setback for Durant.  But I think he can come back from it.  If Cousins can do it, Durant can do it too.

Lowry still gonna catch that slander though lol

 

Draymond getting that ball is not getting the attention it should. You never know if he doesn't get that block.

Geez, that sucks for Durant. Who is gonna sign him? 

 

He will take the players option with the Dubs and be a free agent after next season. Unless a team like the Knicks is willing to give him the max as a gamble.

G-Wiz???

 

That thing looks highly untrustworthy

G-Wiz is a mute, which is fitting because it feels like we're in space and no one can hear us scream sometimes outside the DMV as a fanbase.  He's screaming on the inside, I've seen it in person.

Oh okay, I thought he was an unrestricted free agent, like his contract was finished. The way everyone was talking I thought he was gonna gone after this season.

He was definitely opting out before tonight. Just not sure it makes sense unless a team will still give him a max deal.

Sounds like a prime candidate to black out, pull out a smuggled switchblade and knife a fan in the stands

Durant's injury is a horribly unfortunate situation for him, and it is a warning against max players taking short term deals.  Anthony Davis and Kyrie Irving and Kawhi should take heed.

 

It also alters the free agency landscape so profoundly this summer.

Was his achilles injured originally and they just missed it somehow?  A lot of guys have rushed back from calf injuries and it’s not usual for the achilles to explode because of it.  If that we’re the case a calf injury would be treated with much more caution than it is.  Normally you risk worsening the strain or reinjuring it and suffering a major set back, but it’s not an automatic snapped achilles.  

 

I ask because when he initially hurt it a lot of people, with experience or medical degrees, were sure it looked like an achilles injury.

His reaction made me think achilles, because of popping nature of the rupture.

He had 16 years to take out Ernie, he's quietly broken.  I feel bad for him, he's like a trapped spirit.

Agreed, and I'd be concerned about giving him max until more comes out.  This could get very depressing very fast.

Durant 😥

 

Really hope he can come back but I doubt it.

 

Wanted to see him age naturally, and not in this expedited way.

Honestly I didnt think Boogie should be playing either. Seems awfully quick coming back on a quad tear (!) after coming back from an achilles, and being in terrible shape.

I heard sources on the TV and the radio make it very clear that Durant playing carried no elevated risk of Achilles injury and no minutes restriction.

 

Something doesn’t feel right...
