Kevin Durant’s first game with the Warriors did not go according to plan. Their first game of the season was a blowout loss to the San Antonio Spurs. Durant scored 27 points and had 10 rebounds but seemed to be out of sync with fellow Golden State superstars.
After the game, Durant was seen taking practice shots on the court. According to reporters, he was talking to himself as he shot. This is what he was saying: “They told me I ain’t have no drive! I’m out here. They called me a coward! Putting in work.”
It remains to be seen wether this is going to be good motivation or an early sign that the pressure of playing for the Warriors is too much. The Warriors next face off against the Pelicans tonight.
