Brooklyn Nets star, and DMV native, Kevin Durant has weighed in on resuming the NBA season in the Orlando bubble.
"I probably wouldn't have played," Durant said on a recent episode of Dawg Talk. "It's just so unpredictable. It's easy for me to say right now because I'm injured, but I probably wouldn't have went down there (to Orlando)."
Durant already ruled out his return this season to ESPN's The Undefeated earlier in June while he continues to recover from a torn Achilles he suffered in Game 5 of the 2019 NBA Finals.
"If the guys feel safe enough to go play, that's cool, I'm with them. If they don't feel like they should go down there and play or don't feel safe, I'm with them too. I'm all about what the group wants," Durant said.
Wizards John Wall, also recovering from injury, recently came out in agreeance with Brooklyn's Kyrie Irving, saying players should consider not going in light of recent protests around the country seeking social justice reform.
"For me, if I was playing, I wouldn't want to go to it, to be honest. I just don't feel like it's safe. I just don't feel like it is. I understand why they want to do it and what they're trying to get to, but I wouldn't want to," Wall said.
