Green elaborated further, adding how he cannot take Durant for granted. “I felt like it would be great for us to have that conversation publicly because I publicly f*** it up. … And so, I wanted to have that conversation publicly because people publicly saw it, and they needed to, No. 1, understand that we are brothers and amongst Black men, we can reconcile.”

The both of them did talk their problems out, and are finally in a space they needed to be. “And then I also felt like he was ready to talk about it. I’m sick of hearing everybody’s narrative that was wrong.” In the end, Durant, too, was tired of what people had to say.
