Hours after Stephen A. Smith ripped him for being increasingly arrogant, disrespectful and dismissive, Golden State’s Kevin Durant took some time to press the flesh with fans in San Antonio. The sweet-shooting forward signed autographs and posed for selfies before sending the Spurs off to summer vacation.
This is totally weird because Smith, who is usually not one prone to hyperbole and has no history of provoking Durant, is usually so spot-on with his analysis.
There’s always the small chance that Durant made sure the cameras caught his spell of good cheer as a response to the comments. I choose not to be that woke.
