Durant Done for Summer
Just as suddenly and unexpectedly as he joined the team for the Orlando Summer League, Kevin Durant is done with it altogether.Reportedly, after much deliberation, the summer coaching staff has decided it would be best if the franchise player didn't risk injury in trivial summer development games.
Kevin did hint earlier that he would like nothing more than to play against the Miami Heat and long-time friend Michael Beasley. However, all hopes of a friendly match-up between the talented #2 picks are gone now.
I can't help but think that it's for the better. One game was good, but two or three I think would be maddness. Hey, it was a nice publicity stunt I suppose, but when you get down to the business of basketball, it just wasn't a wise decision to keep him in there.
Say goodbye to all hopes of winning the summer league chamionship. How depressing.
