Kevin Durant creates controversy with a tweet… about Giannis!

Eliminated from the title race, Kevin Durant spends more time on the net than on the court. This Tuesday, he also fired up Twitter with a rather lively message, in which he specifically mentions Giannis Antetokounmpo!

Terror on the court most of the time, Kevin Durant it is perhaps even more so on social media. Very active on the web, the Nets leader often tends to loosen up when he discovers a point of view that doesn’t suit him. This has been the case again in the last few hours, and prompted him to throw out a very tongue-in-cheek response involving… Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Kevin Durant quotes Giannis to dismantle a received idea

A few hours after power chat with LeBron James on Twitter about an all-time debate, KD came across a message whose content did not really appeal to him. Topic ? The American basketball development system, criticized by former NBA player Dan Dickau. To make the latter understand that he was wrong, Slim Reaper referred to the Giannis case like this!

Dan Dickau: I’m sure some people won’t like it, but the American model of basketball is dysfunctional when it comes to the development of young players and the importance of rankings. The three possible best players in the world (Giannis, Jokic and Luka) certainly wouldn’t have given a damn about the ranking or maybe they wouldn’t have even known there was one.

Kevin Durant: Hasn’t Giannis upped his game more in the States than he did across the Atlantic?

After having he won over the European players and provoked Evan Fournier’s reactionDurant, therefore, does it again with a new diatribe of the genre. In short, he wants to defend American-style training and its very particular mode of operation. For example, he was placed as a great support for the AAU circuit, also attacked very often:

Freddie L. Barnes: But the overall picture of the AAU is more harm than good for youth development, especially when it comes to overuse leading to injury.

Kevin Durant: I disagree man. I’d say he does more good than harm.

Proud of his journey through adolescence and the basketball education he was able to receive there, Kevin Durant continues to defend the American development system body and soul. For him, it was the US coaches who, for example, did most of the work on Giannis!
