.@ColinCowherd: Did KD and Draymond have a simmering resentment in their relationship?
“I would be lying if I didn’t say that wasn’t a factor… There was a point where Kevin Durant just stopped talking much to his teammates. He was on an island.” — @ChrisBHaynes pic.twitter.com/kF36BTJy8f

“There was a point with Kevin Durant when he just stopped talking to his teammates,” Haynes said. “He was really on an island and didn’t have somebody that he was close with on that team. The only person he was close with was Quinn Cook, because they’re from the same area. But Quinn is a younger guy that doesn’t have much clout within the franchise.”
Durant was worried about leading his teammates on and divulging too much information to the media, which is what ultimately led to his radio silence.
“After the Draymond stuff went down and then the New York Knicks chatter started going haywire, Durant just stopped talking,” Haynes said. “He felt like if he said something, it would give a lot of credence to people saying he’s only thinking about free agency. You would see Durant leaving the arena by himself and entering the arena by himself and really not speaking to anyone.”
Draymond and KD are just too different to play alongside each other.
You need thick skin to deal with Draymond’s antics all year long.
And KD is not known for having thick skin.
