Golden State Warriors MVP Kevin Durant suggests the media hype behind James has become a deterrent and could make it difficult for the Lakers to find the four-time MVP a sidekick.
"He has so many fanboys in the media. Even the beat writers just fawn over him. I'm like, we're playing basketball here, and it's not even about basketball at certain points. So I get why anyone wouldn't want to be in that environment because it's toxic. Especially when the attention is bulls--t attention, fluff.
KD pointed to Kevin Love and Chris Bosh, who went from top options to mostly spot-up shooters to fit James' game.
"Kevin Love, he had to totally change his game to fit, to be a shooter," Durant said. "Which, I think, he deserves way more credit for switching his game. Bosh, same way. LeBron is a player that needs to play with guys that already know how they play the game and shooters. Like, young players that are still developing, it's always going to be hard because he demands the ball so much, he demands control of the offense and he creates for everybody."
Not sure why KD is talking about LeBron and his situation in Los Angeles. Is this KD's way of detracting players from going to Los Angeles?
KD should worry about KD, and the circus he's creating for himself with his upcoming free agency.
