Hindi na masasaksihan sa aksiyon kahit na maipagpatuloy ang naudlot na season ng NBA si Kevin Durant.
Ayon sa Tweet ng Bleacher Report, nagpaalam na ang ilang beses naging miyembro ng Dream Team na si Kevin Durant at tuluyang inalis ang pagbabalik para sa inaasahang magbubukas na 2019-2020 season sa Hulyo.
“My season is over. I don’t plan on playing at all,” sabi ni KD.
Una nang naglabas ng kanyang pahayag si Durant hinggil sa kanyang “black pride is stronger than ever.”
“This is about our culture,” sabi ng 6-foot-10 NBA All-Star at Brooklyn Nets forward patungkol sa pagkamatay ni George Floyd sakaling makapaglaro para sa Nets.
“The black pride is soaring with the way African Americans are demanding respect in a trying world in the aftermath of the tragic death of George Floyd. I’ve seen the care, love and attention we have as a community. With everything going on right now it makes me have a lot of pride.”
“We have a lot of stuff on our back, but we keep fighting through. It’s beautiful to see everybody coming together as one right now for what we all believe in, which is equality. The black community always sticks together through tragedy. But to see everybody support us in their own way is cool,” sabi pa nito.
