Someone sent Kevin Durant flowers to apologize for fans cheering his injury

Skip Bayless speaks on FS1 Golf: Woods feels Durant's pain after Achilles injury

Whether that is still the Warriors' plan in the wake of Durant's injury in Game 5 remains to be seen. We play the game, basketball is just a game, but you have more stuff, life is more important than basketball. I was watching the game and felt disgusting, it was a total disgrace.

When Kevin Durant went down with his second-quarter Achilles injury, much of the packed crowd at Scotiabank Arena reacted by cheering.

'He was cleared to play tonight; that was a collaborative decision, ' Myers said.

Woods, who suffered an Achilles injury in 2011, said he could empathise with Durant, who nearly certainly now faces several months of rehab to regain fitness.

Adrian Wojnarowski appeared on ESPN's Get Up on Wednesday morning and laid out the options in front of Durant, explaining that returning to the Warriors on his current contract really isn't in the cards for now.

Three is switching on a 'true' 5G network in August
Some people have questioned whether there are health risks from 5G, but experts and regulators say there is no evidence of danger. Three hopes to offer 400 percent improvements in speed and capacity, in addition to using "advanced antenna technology".

'And to tell you something about Kevin Durant, Kevin Durant loves to play basketball, and the people that questioned whether he wanted to get back to this team were wrong, ' Myers said.

The Golden State Warriors were prepared to pitch Kevin Durant on a long-term contract this offseason with the understanding that they would grant him a trade should he wish to leave the team at any point, according to a source that spoke with Frank Isola of The Athletic.

If Irving knows the chances of playing with Durant are remote, maybe he considers staying in Boston, where the chances of winning are higher than in NY.

The issue with Durant is what kind of diminished asset would the Knicks be bringing in and if his injury will prevent another star such as Kyrie Irving or Kawhi Leonard from joining the team. He was diagnosed with a mild Achilles tendon strain the following year. Achilles tears can take from 8 to 12 months to recover.

One person with a positive outlook is Durant's mother Wanda, whom he dedicated his NBA MVP award to during an emotional speech in 2014. 'He has a heart of a true Warrior!
