Kevin Durant is a professional athlete used to taking smack talk from fans, but his mama doesn’t have to keep quiet when it comes to defending her son.
Wanda Durant took to Twitter on Tuesday morning and announced, “For ALL of you who question my son as a Man, question his Heart, question his Integrity and question his LOVE for the game of basketball, you DON’T know him.”
Wanda added, “He has a heart of a true Warrior! This too shall pass. God Bless you ALL.”
She’s responding to critics who questioned Durant’s dedication and desire to support his team after missing the first 4 games of the series between the Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors.
KD came back Monday night for game 5, but unfortunately left in the 2nd quarter after suffering a nasty Achilles injury. The Warriors ended up winning by one-point and will still get a shot at the Championship with Game 6 back in Oakland this Thursday at Oracle Arena.
It’s unclear if Durant will be able to make a return this season, but the chances are extremely slim.
