Kevin Durant May Be Too Soft For NYC if Patrick Beverley Gets in His Head
Listen to Nick Wright discuss Charles Barkley’s recent soundbite concerning Golden State Warriors superstar Kevin Durant’s impending free agency that could include the two-time NBA Finals MVP taking his talents to New York City.
While talking about a possible scenario of Durant playing for the New York Knicks, the always outspoken Barkley said KD is way too thin-skinned to play in the nation’s largest media market and made it clear that he didn’t have the ‘mental makeup’ to play in New York.
Check out the audio below as Wright told Colin Cowherd that he disagrees with this notion that the Big Apple boasts this terrifying and blood thirsty media in 2019 that all athletes should fear. Nick says this isn’t the 80’s and 90’s anymore where newspaper headlines would define the city’s lifeline, and says KD is more concerned about what he’s reading on Twitter instead of what random sportswriters in NYC are saying.
