Kevin Durant jumps into Twitter Space convo titled ‘Kevin Durant is not top 5’

Durant jumped into a Twitter Spaces conversation. Twitter Spaces is a forum through Twitter that allows users to host, join and participate in live audio-only talk shows. This particular Twitter Spaces conversation was hosted by online personality “LegendOfWinning,” and the conversation was titled “Kevin Durant is not top 5.” To the surprise of some — but not all — Durant himself jumped in and argued with the speakers. He appeared to join in after about 40 minutes. Then he told off the hosts for the way they view the game. “I just think how y’all even look at the game is whack as f—,” Durant said. “I just think how you all consume the game is trash. Are you good or not? Some things can be that simple.”

The KD spaces happening right now is the first worthwhile spaces convo I’ve heard in a long time… – 8:53 PM

With #Cavs, Emoni Bates doesn’t need to be the ballyhooed teenager on the cover of Sports Illustrated. He doesn’t need to be “Kevin Durant Jr.” He doesn’t need to be a star or the answer on the wing. For the first time in years, there are no expectations.…4:20 PM

I see everyone talking about Dariq Whitehead taking KD and Joe Johnson’s number, but what about Nets legend Boki Nachbar? – 12:57 PM

#Nets are up next with the 21st overall pick.
This is the first of the four first round picks Phoenix traded to Brooklyn as part of the Kevin Durant deal.
The other three are in 2025, 2027 and 2029. #Suns #NBADraft10:23 PM

“Kevin Durant on steroids” and the potential to be “one of the all-time greats.”
Fair praise for Victor Wembanyama from ex-NBA assistant coach Bill Bayno, who hasn’t seen as much anticipation for a No. 1 pick since LeBron James.…10:04 PM

Cason Wallace said the KD-Russ Thunder were one of his favorite teams and that he played with them frequently on 2K – 9:48 PM

Mikal Bridges as a Net:
26.1 PPG
4.5 RPG
1.0 SPG
Only Kyrie and KD have averaged more PPG as a Net. PM
Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
A reminder: Pick swaps are not the same thing as owing a team an outright first-rounder. Barring injury, can’t imagine the Suns’ picks in 2024 and 2026 will be more valuable than Wizards’ picks, and in 2028, it’ll be the worst pick between PHX, BKN and PHI because of the KD trade – 4:30 PM
Ben Anderson @BensHoops
Phoenix is the most all in on a title I’ve seen a team go since the Nets with D-Will/KG/Pierce etc.
Owning zero draft capital for the better part of the next decade with KD and Beal who are going to be hard to flip for more than they paid means it’s truly all or nothing. – 3:47 PM

Is KD right when he says Harden, Kyrie and Westbrook are 3 of the most influential players? Rather build around Ohtani or Judge? & more! Guests: @adaniels33 @EphraimSalaam @martinweiss

Free agency officially begins in July with an opportunity for Rose to upgrade the roster via trade. The Knicks were reportedly involved in negotiations with the Wizards for Bradley Beal, who ultimately chose Phoenix and waived his no-trade clause to form a Big-3 with Kevin Durant and Devin Booker. A source shot down another rumor Thursday, saying “there was nothing to” the reported talks between the Knicks and Clippers for Paul George. -via New York Daily News / June 23, 2023
