Kevin Durant Stands By Decision To Join Nets, Denies Regret For Leaving Warriors

Kevin Durant has faced criticism for leaving NBA teams in the past, with the narrative being that he cannot win as the top guy of a franchise.

This started when he joined the Golden State Warriors in 2016 and continued when he left the dynasty to join the Brooklyn Nets with Kyrie Irving years later.

Despite winning consecutive championships with the Warriors and being arguably at his best, injuries prevented total domination.

With the Nets, Durant's tenure was more known for the off-court distractions with Irving serving as the ringmaster.

Nevertheless, Durant denies any regret for leaving the Warriors and joining the Nets, saying that he maximizes every day as a player and gets the most out of himself every time he steps on the floor.

He was always going to be vilified by a large chunk of fans after signing with the Warriors, and delivering a title to Brooklyn would have been proof that he can lead a team to the promised land.

With the Phoenix Suns during the 2023 NBA playoffs, the onus will again be placed on his shoulders to prove himself.

Durant remains steadfast in his belief that he can live with the results and the wins and losses, as long as every rep is done with intention and force.

He says he would never consider anything he does a failure, even if they lost 82 games in a season.

Ultimately, Durant's focus is on maximizing his potential as a player, regardless of where he is and what team he is on.
