Kevin Durant has had a mixed season so far. After making a return from a long layoff due to an Achilles’ injury, KD looked like he hadn’t missed a beat. But subsequent injuries to his hamstring and now his thigh has kept him out for multiple games this season.

While his on-court performances have been absolutely terrific, his behaviour off the court has raised multiple eyebrows. Be it his multiple feuds on Twitter to even calling out pundits, Durant has been pretty vocal about his thoughts.

Kevin Durant has played with some quality teammates in his NBA career. While he might have played with some quality players, only a handful might be better than Steph Curry.

With Steph, KD formed a formidable duo and led the Dubs to 2 championships. While there were no cracks visible in their relationship, Durant’s recent activity suggests something else.

Recently, KD caused a stir among fans as he liked a controversial tweet which was rather demeaning to Steph Curry.

This is not the first time Durant has been at the center of a controversy. Recently, KD had a rather public feud with NBA analyst Shannon Sharpe.

While the 32-year-old might be accustomed to constant criticism, his recent off-court activities surely haven’t reflected well on the 11-time All-Star’s reputation.

Can Durant silence his critics with a championship?

While his off-court antics have been rather questionable, KD has the perfect opportunity to silence his critics by winning the championship.

The Nets might have James Harden and Kyrie Irving on their roster, but Durant is certainly the key piece to this puzzle.

The 32-year-old finds himself in a rather favorable situation with a loaded star cast around him. But the competition this time is much tougher than the last time KD and his team were the favorites.

The Nets have enough firepower to obliterate any defense in the NBA. While competition is fierce in the league, the biggest problem the Nets might face is health. Two of their superstars are out with Durant suffering a thigh contusion and Harden suffering a hamstring injury.
