Kevin Durant is regarded as one of the best basketball players in the world right now. The Brooklyn Nets star had previously won two championships with the Golden State Warriors and there is no doubt he will win more in the future. It seems he landed himself in trouble once again.
The Brooklyn Nets have been part of a lot of controversies as of late. Kyrie Irving is certainly one of the reasons why. Despite that, the team is still one of the top teams in the NBA.
Kevin Durant is certainly in top form throughout his games, but it seems he has suffered a setback recently. During the last game against Indiana Pacers, Durant launched the ball into the stands and got a technical foul for his actions and could be facing a huge fine.
During the Nets’ game against the Pistons, Kevin Durant was trying to contest a three-pointer during defensive play. However, Kelly Olynyk tried to guard Durant. Due to this, Durant elbowed Olynyk and shoved him to the ground. Because of this Kevin Durant was ejected from the game.
Fans took to Twitter and blasted Kevin Durant for his irresponsible action. Many criticized Durant for even trying to throw an elbow, that could have injured Olynyk in the process.
KD out here swinging MMA elbows smh
Damn can’t even defend the KD in that one… He went high with the elbow…
KD just throwing elbows now man… so soft.
KD should probably get a suspension for those elbows.
It is certainly not a good time to be Kevin Durant from the looks of it. We hope he gets his head back in the game so that Durant can continue to perform at the best level possible.
