  • KD bevballing ..he got bunch HATERS...we love u Kelvin...okc!!!!

  • Is this professional sports or high school?? No other profession has managers wishing for happiness of employees Stop treating these guys like pampered babies.. No wonder they never grow up and feel entitled

  • A.I.D.S.

  • Maybe I'm a dinosaur but can you imagine Larry Bird or Michael Jordan being so soft during their playing days?

  • Magic Johnson what's the CD4 count on that thing

  • Durant never gonna be the same prime KD ever again, he is getting older and slower not faster, he is coming off the most devastating bball injury which will slow him down further and take away some of his hops as well. You will see a noticeable difference in his game next year

  • KD summed up: “I’m not as good as Lebron, never have been and never will be, period, EVERYONE knows it, and I can’t handle it.” KD will not be happy until he realizes and accepts the undeniable fact that he simply isn’t on the Lebron. MJ level. Perhaps if he LEADS two different teams who weren’t good until he got there to 8 straight Finals them we MIGHT consider mentioning him somewhere in the same vicinity or ballpark as GOAT James. But not until then. And KD doesn’t like Kerr because of Kerrs statement that MJ and Lebron are the two best players that he’s ever seen.

  • happiness isn't alway's there it's a constant pursuit.

  • durant just want to hoop and get stats, kyrie too; winning no longer matter!

  • KD the greatest and Kylie a killa the nets ain’t gon b nothin to fk wit once they get right...

  • Kd I think is in a retirement state.. that might be his only happiness..Still got a lot of life in him but if you mental state ain't there, then your game not either

  • One day Kevin Durant will come out gay.

  • KD is Gay. He needs to comeout of the closet.

  • Stop sleeping on Golden State I'm sick of it also I really do hope KD find happiness like magic said a lot of the team step back for KD

  • He wants adulation, and that comes from play and personality. He only has one of those.

  • SAS is stuck on stupid. The Lakers are NOT the favorites.

  • Ego never finds happiness.

    • Please What ego do you see... Besides that Draymond incident at the Clippers game You had Bob Myers at the championship parade saying What he Said Was Disrespectful to KD...Who didn't say anything, That man stated he just wanna play

  • It's hard to be as great as he is and find happiness we bmneed the puss and the drive

  • KD ... it’s not going to win another championship..... without the Warriors ... KD... at best would be like TMAC.... phenomenal player but would have never won no championship ..... I mean KD ,Westbrook and harden with serge couldn’t win one..... Nuff said.... you’re different from the rest of the Warriors cause you’re not a forever grateful to chef curry KD!!!!!!!

  • It works cuz there was 4 allstars on the floor in there prime

  • She looks bored shitless

  • Magic may want him to find happiness, but I want him to find a woman and stop being such a mommas boy !!!

  • KD wants to have a balance conference,! west is stack stars! he will be the number one player in east aside giannnis

  • Lol its funny because KD benefited the most with the spacing provided by klay and steph... lol soon he will realize scoring wont be as easy once hes out of golden state..

  • Well said Magic about KD.

  • He said it’s not a bad thing idiot why y’all so concerned with how another man feels

    • Facts Brother.... It's about putting yourself in the best position to win and Give you Pleasure to be there...Stephen A Act to emotional Alot

  • Why Ate You So Loud. His Name is Jesus. Trust Him. Read: Isaiah Chapter 59.

  • Durant is so sensitive that he can't even stand people wanting him to be happy

  • Them titles dont mean nothing he should of just bought them

  • if the 🐍 isn't happy @ all,then he should go to the rockets & reunite with westbrook & harden ...... & ask ibaka to join them too ........ 😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂 ......

  • Warriors even offered him the super max. Not enough.

  • Find happiness ninja,!! 😂😂

  • Durant lacks the champion gene, he’s not a leader and never will

  • Translation: Magic is happy KD is out of the Western Conference. Magic gave the entire Laker team the hiv. Dwite Howard came back for seconds.

  • Kevin Durant is one confused brother

  • I lost some respect for Magic.

  • KD needs to comb his hair, perhaps he will find happiness. KD. wants it all KD. need inner peace ☮️ with him self to be happy 😃 l hope he don’t win. another dam championship. To ungrateful. Go GSW. Champions 2020. much love S.Curry . Honey Golden State is your team.

  • He is justifiably unhappy. What he did was unprecedented and therefore people who think to do the same in future need to observe and take note....Its makes you happier when you build things yourself rather than jump on what others were building before. Which doesnt mean he should not be happy, it is good he is not happy as it would not be a good look for him to be happy with just being given 2 easy titles!

    • @Sydney Cole What wuld have been more impactful Ewing and Barkley joining and putting 2 losses on Jordan or KD Joining GSW and putting 2 losses on Lebron? Add to that KLAW Joining TOR and do what Lebron wasnt able to do

    • Don M wade won finals mvp before lebron got to Miami

    • @Sydney Cole And what did Wade/Bosh win together before? They formed a team not join a championship team that held season 73/9 win record. Two different things all together, thats not even a strong as two champions like KD and KI linking up! They all built the team just like KD will have to do now with KI

    • Don M So lebron joined wade and Bosh........

  • I wanted the same for magic but instead he found aids

  • He knows he didn’t earn those 2 rings

  • Let's all gather around to figure out how to make someone happy who is a millionaire. I think we should make this a running series.

  • The key to happiness is staying true to yourself. Stand and fight like a man and lose every year with Westbrick like everybody else!

  • He needs Jesus

  • Durant need to find his real happiness team, by not going other team.

  • magic talk truth

  • How tf you gonna find happiness if youre not happy w/ yourself?

  • Canadian Parliament Member Garnett Genuis made a motion for Senate Bill 240 on the House floor on Tuesday. The bill, an act to amend the Criminal Code and the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (trafficking in human organs), was thus first read in the House of Commons.

  • He is not happy with himself inside and shows

  • Having a conversation like that in front of such a huge crowd doesn't seem a bit....idk....cringey?...or its just me?

  • Nobody is happy.

  • How did this become about happiness???

  • SAS: that’s good point Max but you are wrong and this is why lol

  • Durant should just come out & say how he feels, all this double talk got him looking dumb. He hates Steph Curry, his place in basketball, his image & the way ppl praise him. Durant said he hated "ball movement offence" translation just give me the ball. He hated being "part of the team" and really thought by now he'd eclipse be THE guy in GS. His plan was to divide & conquer, to dismantle GS as we knew it. He wanted the Warriors staff & team to praise him & felt away when they kept it moving, considering they were all already winners.

    • @Sydney Cole Ahh -ha, he's a better at doing what he does, but Steph is definitely better than KD in terms of importance to a team/any team.

    • Ricky Runks Kd is WAAY better than curry

  • Bring back seattle sonics where he first started his career and was happy playing ball.

  • Clippers coming out before the lakers do 🤷🏽‍♂️sorry magic

  • Kevin and kyrie are gonna win a ring together , Russ and James are gonna win a ring together , Kawhi and Pg are gonna win a ring together & Bron and AD will win a ring together . I don’t think we will see anymore back to back champs it’s gonna be a new finals each year for the next 5 years

  • I agree with you Mr Johnson with exception of if it's not Golden State than there is no place else.. I think the Nets have a good shot to flourish with KD and he could lead them to that stage. But yes, Golden State is loaded and this makes move makes NBA More COMPARATIVE.

  • KD is gonna pull a Robin William's out here. Someone reach out to that man.

  • KD is just a sensitive giraffe

  • Magic Johnson is still alive ?!? did he have HIV, AIDS ??

  • Kevin Durant’s attitude is the reason he’s not happy. If he changes that, then there is hope for him. If not, he’s not going to find it, especially not in Brooklyn.

  • Kareem is an introvert

  • Dono why I think magic should just stfu

  • If you making millions and winning, who cares "who tean" it is because in reality its the owner(s)

  • <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="176">2:56</a> that one poor warriors fan who only cheered for golden state

  • “...Whoso trusts in the Lord happy is he.” Pr <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="980">16:20</a>. This man is rich and famous. But until you find rest in your soul - nothing is going to satisfy. That’s how you are made.

  • #23 on trending

  • Quitter

  • Watch kd come back and nets be a bust , he’s not a leader like Jordan or magic

  • KD you’re selfish brat, you lost your mind fool.

  • Lol I’m sure that man is pretty happy.

  • Happy sit "

  • A lot of speculation in the comments section

  • Durant needs to buy a tuna fish sandwich on a bread stick

  • Why is this out loud with the audience?

  • This guy does not look like a guy with the mental fortitude to be able to battle back from this very serious injury. He could very well be done.

  • The boy, Kevin Durant, needs to man-up and shake that matriarchal energy off of himself and stop being in his feelings so much. Tell that boy to be a leader and play ball, get paid, and win NBA championships.

  • This is what happens when you spend your whole nba career trying to be somebody else until he gets the recognition lebron has gotten he won’t be happy and he gave that up when he joined gs now with his injury he won’t be the player he was the nets is going to be kyrie’s team and he’ll be bitter about that

  • Question: When did KEVIN DURANT say he WAS NOT HAPPY?

  • Durant best offensive player o the NBA Probably top 10 defender
