It’s no surprise that there are some strong reactions to Kevin Durant signing with the Golden State Warriors. Fans are burning jerseys and analysts are giving their hot takes. It wouldn’t be a newsworthy story if ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith didn’t give his burning hot take on it and he was not holding back on Durant and his decision to go to the Golden State Warriors.

Without considering LeBron James’ move in 2010, Stephen A. goes full hater mode on Kevin Durant:
He didn’t mention LeBron joining his own super team in 2010 when he went to the Miami Heat and said they would win several championships — I believe the number was seven — and just went off on Durant. Of course he backed it up on Twitter too for good measure.
Is it as weak as the move Stephen A. made when he went from hosting his own show to becoming an NBA beat reporter? You decide on that. Either way, this decision will change the league, and more specifically the Western Conference, for years to come.
