After losing Game 1 of the 2019 NBA Finals, Steve Kerr was asked about Kevin Durant and his reply says they got enough,
“It doesn’t matter until he’s out there, So if he’s out there, he’s pretty good, but if he’s not out there we play with the guys we have and we have got enough. We have won the last, whatever, six games without him, fixe, six games. So we have enough, but you play with the guys who are helathy and you go. so we’ll see what happens.”
For everyone who is against the Golden State Warriors they would hint that Steve Kerr is sending a message that Kevin Durant is not needed.
However we know that is not the case, Steve Kerr
would have the same answer regardless who is injured as he doesn’t want to give the other team a lot of confidence and he would want to send a message of positivity to his team, fans and his opponent.
Let us not blow this out of proportion, Kevin Durant is a Warrior and he will back in rotation having the same importance as everyone in the organization.
