Responding to the post, Durant did not hold back, explaining that nobody should feel sorry for “the professional basketball player who got everything he ever wanted.”
Please don’t ever feel bad for the professional basketball player who got everything he ever wanted. Somebody else needs your well wishes way more

Despite a somewhat turbulent season for the Suns, largely due to injuries, Durant’s support comes at a time when the team is showing signs of improvement.
The Suns have won 8 of their last 11 games, and recently erased a 21-point 4th quarter deficit, proving that, when clicking, they can overcome anything.
