Oh man, a few days after Kyrie Irving opts into his 36 million dollar deal with the Brooklyn Nets, Kevin Durant has requested a trade.
Sucks to suck Kyrie. Kevin is done with your bull shit.
Kyrie: we are running it back now that I’ve opted in!

As soon as the news broke Twitter exploded with takes from every corner of the NBA with scenarios as to where KD could go. Hilariously enough, KD to Toronto and the Raptors started to trend on their own.
This is why. Someone put a sizzle reel together of Kevin Durant saying how much he loves Toronto and Nick Nurse.

Masai Ujiri is a dog and has pulled off a blockbuster that no one thought was possible before. Kevin is a low-key dude who hates the American media. He could come here and chill in Canada with no pressure. We would just be grateful to have him. Also the Drake factor.
Toronto would have to part ways with OG Anunoby, Gary Trent Jr and a boatload of draft picks but as Kevin Garnett says.
In Masai I trust and I truly believe it isn’t as crazy as American media is making it out to be. COME HOME KEVIN!!!
