Commentary on Kevin Durant’s ultimatum at the Brooklyn Nets: A black mark on the legacy

Kevin Durant has apparently given the Brooklyn Nets an ultimatum: either general manager Sean Marks and head coach Steve Nash should go – or KD is gone. However, this next level of escalation after his trade request only produces losers. A comment.

In the past few weeks, something like hope has germinated in the Nets camp. Could Kevin Durant be persuaded to stay? After a meeting between team owner Joe Tsai and KD, who was willing to change, the answer could not have been clearer: only about the “corpses” of general manager Sean Marks and head coach Steve Nash.

The 33-year-old hit his (still) employer with an ultimatum that only produces losers. The Nets, because they must finally let their superstar go – Tsai clearly positioned himself on the side of his GM and coach in a tweet – and thus lost one of the best basketball players in the world. And Durant himself, creating a black mark on his legacy.

Nobody should make the mistake of questioning Durant’s sporting legacy in light of the summer drama: two-time champions, two-time Finals MVP, twelve-time All-Star, four-time scoring champion, and and and. Durant already belongs in the ranks of the top 15 all-time.

But away from the parquet he loses more and more friends.
