Kevin Durant Reacts to Milwaukee Bucks Winning NBA Finals, Devin Booker & Bucks Joing Team USA
Durant on the Bucks: “Nothing but respect for them”
Fresh off an NBA Finals appearance, Jrue Holiday and Khris Middleton of the Milwaukee Bucks, and Devin Booker of the Phoenix Suns will now travel with Team USA to play in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant, who has played in multiple Finals and Olympics, gave some thought as to some challenges the incoming players may face right after a grueling six-game series.
“I think there is definitely going to be an adjustment, you know? Just a quick turnaround. But those guys knew what they were getting themselves into when they committed to it a few weeks back.”
“We’re looking forward to those guys coming,” Durant continued. “But we understand that it will take a while to get their legs back under them.”
“Can’t wait to have them around,” he concluded.
As for the champion Milwaukee Bucks, Durant and the Nets had them in a 2-0 stranglehold in the Eastern Conference semi-finals. Derailed by a couple of key injuries, the Nets went on to lose the series, but Durant isn’t making any excuses.
“We understand how good we are and our job wasn’t just to push the Bucks. It was to win it. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen. Congrats to the Bucks. They’re an amazing team who fought through a lot the last few years to get this point. Nothing but respect for them.”
