Markieff Morris on Kevin Durant’s Decision: ‘That Ain’t Right’

by July 07, 2016

Washington Wizards forward Markieff Morris added to the chorus of opinions about Kevin Durant’s defection to Golden State.

Morris says that KD signing with the already-loaded Warriors strikes him as somehow being wrong.

Morris argues that Durant should have wanted to beat the Dubs in the Playoffs instead of joining them.

Per the WaPo:

“I don’t think it’s right, but it is what it is,” said Morris, who joined the Wizards in February after the club dealt a protected 2016 first-round pick, DeJuan Blair and Kris Humphries to the Phoenix Suns at the trade deadline.


“The money is going to be there for anything,” Morris said. “It’s not about that. It’s the whole situation. It’s like, man, come on. You don’t do that.”


So Durant should have stayed with the Oklahoma City Thunder, right, especially after coming within one game of beating Golden State in the Western Conference finals this past season? […] “I wouldn’t say that,” Morris said. “I wouldn’t have went there [Golden State] for sure. First of all, they just beat us, so that’s more important. It would have been a fire inside me to beat them next year, but a lot of guys are different. I just didn’t expect that from Durant. I know him a little bit, and I didn’t expect that.”
