Billy Donovan responds to Kevin Durant’s critical tweets about him
Billy Donovan is taking the high road in reply to Kevin Durant’s Twitter shade.
Speaking at Media Day on Monday, the Oklahoma City Thunder head coach was asked about Durant’s recent tweets criticizing him.
“We did communicate,” replied Donovan, per Royce Young of ESPN. “I enjoyed my time with Kevin. I felt like Kevin and I had a very, very good relationship. Outside of that I don’t think there’s anything more to say.”
You can see what Durant tweeted about Donovan, who coached him during his final season with OKC in 2015-16, here. While the All-NBA forward did not intend to send the tweets from his personal account, that’s still no excuse for what he said, and he has since apologized for mentioning Donovan and the Thunder by name. Hopefully, this officially marks the end of Burnergate.
