OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Kevin Durant is apologizing to referee James Williams for behaving like a "jerk" and he also used an expletive to describe how he acted during a victory against the Knicks on Tuesday night, when the NBA Finals MVP was ejected late for a second technical. "It was a great learning experience for me". Luckily, we won and we can move past it and I can kind of own up to it.
"So second half, his whole thing was like he's trying to get me", Durant said, via Melissa Rohlin of The Mercury News. I was being a diva last night.
"And he tried to make a bunch of excuses, and I told him he was wrong, and he went into halftime probably with an attitude. I said in a comment earlier this year before the season where he said he was just as skilled as LeBron [James] and myself, and I was feeling him on that". He said the dispute began in the first half when Williams called him for a carry on a crossover move he uses often to freeze his defenders. I was like, 'Man, I was wondering why he coming at me so hard. He was searching for me, he lookin' to try to tech me up to get me back because he's still in his feelings from the first half. That's one of those calls you don't really get all the time. The 28-year-old lefty forward made the most of his opportunity, finishing 8-of-15 from the floor and a flawless 5-of-5 from the stripe against one of the best defensive teams in the league. A bunch of that. "I gotta keep my head a little bit, but I was upset", Durant said Tuesday night. Williams issued Durant with a technical foul in each half, leading to his ejection with just under three minutes remaining in the contest.
Kevin Durant has the utmost respect for New York Knicks forward Michael Beasley and his game - and that includes backing him in what most consider an outrageous statement. I know the best officials to me are the ones who will talk to me and I also know they deserve my respect. The players are right, the referees have been too quick with the trigger this season, the officials have to let the players vent some and have a dialogue.
