He’s had more than one run in with the media in the past, but Kevin Durant loves them. That’s the words from the Oklahoma star himself, who looked to clear the air shortly before the Thunder’s victory over Miami at the weekend. Durant questioned those who have said that he hates the media, suggesting that his interaction with journalists and the mainstream press is evidence of his affinity to them. Meanwhile, Kobe Bryant has confirmed he won’t be playing for Team USA at this summer’s Olympics in Brazil. The Lakers legend is set to retire at the culmination of this season and has said he won’t extend his career to have a shot at winning another gold medal. It’s previously been speculated that he’d round off his time on-court in Rio, but, no dice.
