    No Malika physical appearance??? DISLIKE!!!

    KD is a real GOAT


    Truth be told you expect a player to come back after almost two years off, and match the playoff intensity of teams? The playoffs are more physical and the intensity is through the roof...why save him for the playoffs instead of playing now?

  • Sovi

    man there really juicing this, KD playing just 20 mins is not bad for a first step of return

  • MIDNightPT4

    How much rest does KD need


      Peace! Interesting good point he is most likely fragile physically..

    • MIDNightPT4

      @Kam Scott I did and did not need this much rest

    If James stop doing those step backs he wouldn't have a hamstring injury lol

  • EccentricNICK

    Durant is about to be the greatest role player of all time, that leg injury changed him forever

  • ティアタイロLkr

    I really want to know who's better.. Kevin Durant or king James???!!!

    Kd playing 20 mins a game is better than 90 percent of the league.

      @LedLoaf dudes probably just resting and taking it easy. He did just come back this year and playing 30 plus minutes every game isn't a good idea. Same thing happened to drose and he just kept injuring himself.

    • Did my inner peace disturb your Demons
      Did my inner peace disturb your Demons

      No he not

    • LedLoaf

      Why is he out even? Did I miss the part where he got injured again? Felt like one day he just stopped playing games. Obviously, because of the previous severity, but did something clearly happen during a game?

    He should be on minutes restriction. Not necessarily super low but he should be on the same minutes restrictions he should have been on from the start of the season instead of playing 50 minutes in an overtime game. Then slowly get his minutes up. This is the last chance they have to do this right before playoffs start.

    I'm on a "minutes restriction" with Malika Andrews.

    • Kam Scott
      Kam Scott

      Yup you only get no minutes

  • caper087

    If the warriors get in the playoffs they could knock off a Denver or Utah team if Steph goes off.. if they match up with Lebron they be cooked tho lol

  • Buster Smith

    KD can't win unless the team is completely stacked from top to bottom

      You right because he learn from Lebron

    Is it just me or does every time I hear a report or news about the Nets whether it’s “this player will not play tonight” or “Kevin Durant is returning tonight” it’s always reported by Malika Andrews

    • lepidoptery

      well she covers the new york teams (for espn), so....

  • wikedwun

    This reminds me of that Laker team wit Kobe Shaq Malone & Payton. They might meet a well gelled cohesive team and go down in the East

    • Lou ELastic

      Karl Malone was 40 years old bro...


    Scripted This is part of their plan they want their star player to take their rest as long as they can 🤣 So when playoffs come there is no injury anymore Very Good idea

    If i am going to be honest with you ,in my own humble opinion without being sentimental of course, without offending anyone who thinks differently from my own point of view,but also by looking into this matter in distinctive perspective ,i would like to say i have nothing to say

    It's amazing how BKLYN players played a bit for a while together and they're winning games is crazy too.

    • Gabriel Morales

      They got 3 all stars that can all go for 35+ points a game so even when only one of them is in the lineup they can still win 🔥

    KD missed last season and just about this whole season. If he was fully healthy he would play alot more. They aren't saving him for the playoffs they know that his body is fragile and may not hold up..

    What a surprise - a 7 footer coming off a major achilles injury on a minutes restriction? There is a reason most achilles injuries don't work out well at all for a player going forward. Not only does a player risk blowing it out again, he risks another major I injury due to over compensation issues.

      He need to adjust to his skills and not do too much

    KD is definitely getting 18-5-5 if he's on minutes restriction but if not he'll get 26-7-8 if he gets full minutes in his return.

  • He got Game

    He’s on minutes restriction because he’s scared of zion

    KD is the most versatile all around scorer of all time. Period.

    • alexann

      @Tyrese Tomlin never said he was wrong

    • PutSomeOnionsOnThatBeach

      I put Kyrie as 1b cause being his size and scoring on ANYONE in the league, while using up more energy compared to KD (less dribbles, 7 feet tall), and giving you similar scoring outputs. Kyrie is right there

    • Bill Pap.

      @Bryant Royster that's debatable for sure

      @alexann okay well whose the most versatile scorer of all time then? Kd started out playing the 2 then the 3 then he played some 4 and at times small ball 5. He can score from all 3 levels so tell me a more versatile scorer 😂. Don’t discredit the man bc u don’t like him

      @Naquan Jones They had a second scan and realize he had more bleeding that he should’ve. There’s different levels to a hamstring strain and KD’s was probably different than Harden

      @J Th true but hamstring is still a very significant injury
