Kevin Durant Says Workouts With LeBron James Blown ‘Out of Proportion’

by October 08, 2012

Kevin Durant and LeBron James met up this summer to train — as they did last summer — and for some reason, people lost their minds this time around. According to Durant, it was no big deal at all. Per the Oklahoman: “A lot of people blew (it) out of proportion,’ the reigning three time scoring champion said. ‘It was just one day.’ Still, some had a problem with Durant recently traveling to Ohio for the second consecutive summer to train with James. Durant, though, doesn’t see the big deal. ‘I’m a competitive guy,’ Durant said. ‘I’m sure you guys have seen that in me. I just wanted to work out. That’s what it was all about. I’ll work out with anybody. I would have worked out with Kobe Bryant. I would have worked out with Carmelo (Anthony). I just wanted to work out and get better.’ This year’s visit, unlike last year’s lengthier trip that was dubbed ‘Hell Week,’ was unplanned. Durant said he took two to three weeks off following the Olympics and James reached out to him. ‘He was the first guy that called me and I said ‘Hey, why not?’ Durant said. ‘And I went out there and worked hard. So hopefully I have a good season this year.'”
