NBA superstar Kevin Durant, in a recent interview with Duane Rankin of Arizona Republic, stirred controversy by making waves with a statement about his exclusion from the GOAT (Greatest of All Time) conversation.

Durant pointed to his tenure with the Golden State Warriors as the primary reason for not being considered among the all-time greats.

“Because I went to the Warriors. Why shouldn’t I be in that? That’s the question you should ask. Why not? What haven’t I done?” Durant stated in an exclusive interview with The Republic.

Despite Durant's impressive basketball resume, including two NBA championships, two NBA Finals MVP awards, and numerous other accolades, he believes the Warriors years continue to overshadow his legacy. 

The debate extends beyond Durant, also affecting his former teammate Steph Curry, who faces criticism for winning championships with Durant on the team.

The narrative around Durant's Warriors stint appears to be a persistent theme in discussions about his career. 
Many argue that winning a championship without the Warriors would solidify his place in the GOAT conversation. 

Until then, Durant remains determined to earn the respect he believes he deserves, with the spotlight on his future achievements and the potential to secure a championship outside the Warriors organization. (Source: Sports Illustrated)
