In a season where the Warriors have a chance to cement themselves as one of the greatest dynasties in NBA history, what could happen this summer is stealing headlines.
Especially if you're Kevin Durant.
Even when the Warriors star forward won his second NBA All-Star Game MVP, all anyone could talk about over the weekend was a video that surfaced of Durant and Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving. Here's the gist of the clip: two superstar friends are laughing and having a conversation with each other.
Oh, and both players could be free agents this summer and join up as teammates.
Irving was asked about the video Wednesday and a frustrating exchange ensued between point guard and reporter.
From the social media uproar, Irving goes on to say, "This is the stuff that doesn't make the league fun."
The following is the full transcript and video of his responses.
The good news for both players is this -- basketball is back. The All-Star break is over and games can again be the focus when talking about both of these players.
