Kevin Durant is going to be a busy man chirping away on his burners today, because Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett has plenty of thoughts on him joining the Warriors. Like everyone else who doesn’t live in the Bay Area, Myles, who voiced his NBA opinions on 92.3 The Fan, thinks KD made a weak-ass move jumping ship to the team that eliminated him from the 2015 playoffs (via Cleveland.com):
“You hopped onto a 73-9 team and he took the easy way out in my mind,” Garrett said.
“With KD, you just stick him in and he scores. You already knew what they had. They were 73-9 before and you put the second-best player in the world on an already all-time great team and of course you’re going to have success, pretty easy success. Anyone can have an off night and they can still find a way to win.”
A lot of people think KD should pull a LeBron in the future and eventually return to the Thunder, Myles isn’t one of those people:
“Me, I’m too competitive to try and ride on somebody’s coat tails to get a W. But for him, you might as well stay at the spot you’re at now. There’s no point in leaving since you’ve already taken that moniker where he’s been called the snake and cupcake and all that. You might as well stay and just keep on winning.”
Suffice it to say that Myles should be on the lookout for Warriors fans and Twitter eggs blowing up his mentions after this badmouthing. They’ll have plenty of ammo given, you know, he plays on the Browns and hasn’t won a game in the NFL.
