Meyers said he spoke personally with Kevin Durant for between one and two hours before news broke that he wasn’t coming back to the Bay Area. He admitted he “was sad” when he found out Durant was signing with the Brooklyn Nets.
He also said that he and Kevin Durant parted on good terms and gushed about having had the opportunity to watch the superstar up close for three years.
There have been a ton of reports since Durant left the Warriors indicating he has hard feelings about how he was treated, and about the injury that will cost him most — if not all — of the 2019-20 season.
Clearly, Meyers is doing everything he can to publicly let Durant know that he, and the Warriors, just feel lucky to have had him around when they did.
Of course, the team’s announcement about Durant’s No. 35 jersey shows that as well.
