Kevin Durant Describes the Environment Surrounding LeBron James as 'Toxic'

Kevin Durant Says LeBron James-Led Teams Are ‘Toxic’

Bucher interviewed a fair share of stars, role players and even former Lakers players to provide context but Chandler thought his quotes came across negatively, which he never meant to do.

Among the multitudinous NBAers asked about the topic, Kevin Durant had some noteworthy ideas.

So playing alongside someone like James is a huge selling point, right? It's not LeBron's fault at all; it's just the fact you have so many groupies in the media that love to hang on every word. Even the beat writers just fawn over him. After all, James is one of the players that advocated - and possibly even planned - for Chandler to join the Lakers. "... I know people want to tie me into Seattle a lot, and I love being part of that, but I'm not just waiting for that opportunity".

"Especially when the attention is bullsh- attention, fluff", Durant continued.

Tackling climate change could save millions of lives, report says
Some of the nations most at risk from climate change will have the chance Monday to plead the case for immediate action. This reverses a trend from 2014 until 2016, when global Carbon dioxide emissions leveled off after decades of growth.


Last month, a Twitter user claimed the Lakers were in trade talks with the Wizards over Wall and were offering three players in return - Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. "They don't need another guy".

Considering James and the Lakers, back in action when they visit the Spurs on Friday night (8:30 p.m. ET - watch on fuboTV with the NBA League Pass extension), are focused on improving their current team, I doubt LeBron will ever fully acknowledge Durant's criticism of him.

James is one of the few players in the National Basketball Association that genuinely ages like a fine wine. "Like, young players that are still developing, it's always going to be hard because he demands the ball so much, he demands control of the offense and he creates for everybody".

"If you've got LeBron, you've got to make it all about LeBron".

He told The Chronicle in his press conference: " For us, we have experience of this ". Because the players, they know that they have to perform, that's it.


But while Durant says he'd love to potentially be involved in some kind of National Basketball Association ownership, he won't be holding out for such an opportunity to arrive.

"Which, I think, he deserves way more credit for switching his game". "LeBron is a player that needs to play with guys that already know how they play the game - and shooters". Who know's what's going to happen in the playoffs?

Of course, not much was made of the rumor at the time because the source had no credibility, but Kevin Broom of BulletsForever.com chose to ask around if there was anything to it and learned some interesting details.

"He's very unselfish. He's won multiple championships with other superstars", Walton said. Again, I haven't read the article so I can't comment on that, but what you're asking me, to me the question is, why would you not want to play with LeBron?
