In case you missed it, the drama began after a clip of ESPN’s WOJ speaking on Durant’s current mindset with the Suns. WOJ highlighted Durant’s apparent frustration, a sentiment not uncommon for any elite player witnessing their team struggle on the court.

Responding to this narrative, Durant took to Instagram to clarify his position, engaging with an unrelated user to set the record straight.

Sharing his perspective on the matter, Nurkic remarked, “It’s ridiculous because you’re competing against people like that and media kind of put perspective who they are and then you meet them and you be like, damn, that’s has nothing to do with him.”

The Phoenix Suns hold a 3-8 record in the month of December; they are currently riding a three-game losing streak.
