Kevin Durant Claps Back At Donovan McNabb Over Kyrie Criticism


ESPN’s Jackie MacMullan published a story on Tuesday describing how the new-look Brooklyn Nets came to be and the challenge of incorporating All Stars Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant within the team’s culture.

As part of that story, MacMullan mentioned how the Nets have already had concerns about Kyrie Irving’s sporadic “mood swings,” which included a moment in China that left them “scratching their heads as to what precipitated it.”

Amid the “mood swings” report, former NFL star Donovan McNabb hopped on twitter to question whether Kevin Durant is already regretting his decision to team up with Irving in Brooklyn.

“With everything starting to come out with @KyrieIrving and the @BrooklynNets , when will @KDTrey5 realize maybe I should’ve stayed in Golden State? Boy I’ve seen this happen before,” McNabb tweeted.

Durant delivered a simple, yet hilarious, two-word response to the ex-Eagles QB: “Relax McNabb.”

In discussing Irving’s alleged mood swings, Durant told MacMullan that he views his All-Star teammate as “an artist” who sometimes just needs to be left alone. He made it quite clear that he’s in full support of whatever Kyrie has to do in order to perform at the elite level he’s capable of.


“I look at Kyrie as somebody who is an artist,” Durant says. “You have to leave him alone. You know what he’ll bring to the table every night because he cares so much about the game.

“Now, it might not be how other people want him to care about it. He has his way of doing things. I respect who he is and what he does. He has all the intangibles you want in a teammate and a great player. So, how he gets to the point to be ready for 7:30 every night, I’m supporting him 100 percent.”
