The new Brooklyn Nets star, Kevin Durant, has received a lot of criticism for some of his decisions. Although it has been a few years since he moved to the Warriors from OKC, the Nets fans and analysts continue to show their hatred. However, former Miami Heat legend, Chris Bosh has a solution to this problem.
Durant was huge in the Oklahoma City Thunder. It was the franchise he spent the first nine years of his NBA career with. But his timing of leaving the Thunder was a disaster, and nobody was going to applaud him for that. Just a few months ago, Thunder had blown a 3-1 lead against the Warriors in the Western Conference Finals and as soon as Durant entered free agency, he joined the rival team.
On the outside, it looked like Durant was taking the easy way out and got tagged as a ‘ring chaser’. The small forward is now with the Brooklyn Nets, but his actions have not been forgotten yet. Well, it looks like Chris Bosh has some advice for Durant.
On Complex Load Management’s Podcast, Chris Bosh agreed that nobody expected Durant to move to the Warriors. It took everyone by surprise, which is why he got so much criticism for his decisions. But he claimed that he thinks Durant wouldn’t take it back even if he could. “He learned from the whole experience and it will go in his resume.”
“I am pretty sure that’s why he went to Brooklyn too. He wanted to get a restart and kind of do it another way,” said Bosh. When asked if one title would silence all the critics, Bosh stated, “Yeah, it really would,”.
It is time fans let go of Durant’s decision. He is just another guy who got offered a lot of money to play in one of the best teams in the NBA, and he took it. And now, with the Brooklyn Nets, he is ready to team up with Kyrie Irving, Caris LeVert, and Steve Nash. This is a group whose results people are dying to witness on the court.
While most believe that having such ball-dominant players in one team could be a tremendous disadvantage. But only time can tell. Do you think Durant has a chance of winning a title with the Brooklyn Nets?
