Turns out, you don’t even have to play to be a poor sport.
After watching his team win without him, Kevin Durant congratulated his Warriors teammates in the tunnel following Game Two’s 114-111 comeback to beat the Blazers. KD dapped Draymond Green, and ripped the Blazers, saying “Finals?…They don’t wanna go there.”

Of course, Durant is out with a calf strain, and before Game Two it was announced he will not be traveling to Portland for Games 3 and 4 of the series.
He is the two-time reigning NBA Finals MVP, and a phenomenal basketball player, but if anything, this postseason shows that the Warriors not only can win without him, but play a higher quality of basketball without him as well.
That won’t keep KD from making as many sly remarks as possible, though, in a series he has nothing to do with. That’s par for the course for the man known as the Snake.
The Blazers will look to bounce back and take Game Three of the Western Conference Finals on Saturday at 6pm from Moda Center on ESPN.
