Kevin Durant on Nets’ current lineup: ‘What are you expecting?’

Brooklyn Nets superstar Kevin Durant touched on  trade request over the offseason, his frustrations with the coaching style and the Nets’ current issues in a must-read interview with Bleacher Report’s Chris Haynes., and claimed that the team’s current starting lineup “doesn’t measure up.”

Durant also seemed to send a clear message to general manager Sean Marks that the roster needs to improve following a 6-9 start, throwing shade at the four starters sharing the court with him.

Via Bleacher Report:

“Look at our starting lineup. Edmond Sumner, Royce O’Neale, Joe Harris, [Nic] Claxton and me. It’s not disrespect, but what are you expecting from that group? You expect us to win because I’m out there. So if you’re watching from that lens, you’re expecting us to play well because No. 7 is out there.

“I’m really having a good time. I wish y’all could hear me talk during the game. If I got mic’d up more, people would stop asking me if I’m happy or not. I’m enjoying every moment I get to step on this [expletive] court, and part of it is because I tore my Achilles. And the pandemic, I didn’t know if we were going to play again.”
