"I'm trying to play basketball", said Durant, according to the Athletic's Anthony Slater. And naturally, the main topic was KD.

Kevin Durant's silence could come to an end Wednesday. "He's been very forthright and engaging".

But the Clippers' Tobias Harris trade with Philadelphia-executed late Tuesday night on the West Coast and in the A.M. hours in the East-achieved a similar goal for their ambitious front office and means this is a game of musical chairs now. But let's give him a pass. We talk all the time - just like I do with all the players. He just walk around here, don't talk to nobody.

The conversation regarding the best active player in the National Basketball Association usually revolves around a handful of players. This is what we sign up for. We're all getting questions from fans, like, "What's wrong with Kevin?" I have nothing to do with the Knicks, I don't know who traded Porzingis, it ain't got nothing to do with me. I wanna go to the gym and go home. That got nothing to do with me. "I didn't see any of that coming what happened last night". It's best for Durant to recognize he is in the most ideal situation for a player of his skillset. That's all I'm saying. "And he just walks around here, don't talk to nobody, just walk in here and survey and write something like that, and now you gotta pile on me because I don't wanna talk to y'all about that". But he also acknowledged that the scrutiny Durant receives is part of being a high-profile player in a high-profile league.

"And all the revenue that generates the salary cap, it doesn't all come from ticket sales". It comes from media rights and all kinds of financial streams that are based on people's intense interest in the league. The narrative of him not speaking to the media gained steam when the normally approachable Durant hadn't spoken to the assembled media since the Knicks deal went down and speculation surrounding his future intensified. Why do I got to talk to you?
