    He also gave us an update on his health, and whether Nets fans can expect him to get on the court.

      KD gonna have two jerseys retired

    2. Doogin 01

      KD a legend

    3. BroshioTV

      KD all the best #35 #7

    4. raymond balboa

      Something about KD personality rubs me the wrong way.

    5. MTWENTY

      “I think that I’m a flawless basketball player”... I’m sorry but that goes to Kawhi. KD can’t lock down everybody like Kawhi does. I don’t care if he can shoot the ball from 30 feet consistently his defense most definitely lacks in some areas.

      1. CAM

        MTWENTY he’s actually 6’10 after the new rule change name another player that y’all that can do what he does , or even better name a perfect player in the nba since he’s not perfect 🤦🏿‍♂️🤦🏿‍♂️

      2. MTWENTY

        @CAM but hes 6'9" lmao. KD is an incredible player, but hes not flawless is all I'm saying.

      3. CAM

        If rather pick the 7 footer who can dribble and shoot 😂

      4. Jo Momma

        Bro what lol? He he has been a great defender the last several years.

    6. neptuneniq

      EBro offers nothing to these interviews....Rosenberg has to carry him all the time

    7. Gangster Lebron

      Kevin Durant said he can up any team,put him on the cavs 2018 team they ain’t making playoffs

      1. I Perspective-

        @Trill Kevin Derrick Rose and IT was after that season

      2. Trill Kevin

        Gangster Lebron stupid as hell yall lebron fanboys be saying anything look at all the people they had before Lebron traded all them and they all did good after they left Derrick Rose balled out with the timberwolves IT did alright he still was hurt with the nuggets and wade balled out with the heat. Then when Jordan came his points and everything went down same thing with Rodney hood I don’t want to hear that bullshit y’all be saying

      3. Eternal drakkon

        Exactly he think he slick i jus watch the show with surge ibaka he said knicks wont contenders...he can easily fuk do sumthin wit nets they gd jus missin few pieces

    8. WizManBallin

      What Ebro said at 4:25 is exactly why I can't listen to him at times. He outright lies. KD asks him why he doesn't play underground hip-hop on the radio. His answer? "It's not politics." Thanks for checking him Angie! This dude...all he worried about is money to that station...which I get, but don't lie about it. They PAY you to play mumble rap. You talking about people in their cars wanna hear this, that. It's the STATIONS that constantly force feed certain artists down the masses throats, and that's not politics? In the meantime, KD bumping the OG's of hip-hop on premium headphones like me and many of our gen. Anywho, I digress. On with the interview...

    9. ev_camper

      Damn, I'd love to talk hoops all day with KD, cool dude.

    10. Justin Crimaldi Knowledge & Wisdom Playlist

      KD says leaving a team is the nature of the sport. That is untrue. Nature of the sport and a true team mentality is loyalty. MJ understands the nature of the sport. These guys these days just want money or to play with their buddies. If your not one of their buddies then they will be looking to go somewhere else. Thats how the game is today. No more loyalty from teams or players. Teams used to have loyalty, then the players started doing all this and they literally are forced to do whats best for the team. Because you have plauers that could care less about "the team"

      1. Domo Finesse

        But MJ quit on his team though.... for 2 years. 😐

      2. Gabriel Angelo Sanchez

        Teams have been trading players from the beginning. wtf are you talking about.

      3. Trill Kevin

        Plemp Templeton facts like what are these dumbass be saying

      4. Robert Tiongson

        goes both ways man... teams nowadays would trade the franchise players in a blink of an eye.

      5. James Matthews

        WizManBallin damn so true but in this career changing teams can literally effect the whole state lol 😂

    11. Mamadou Diallo

      He look like offset w no braids and he talk like him to

    12. LLEM PRODUCTION

      Nawll he act like he got fucked over by some close people to him and now he's growing up and tightening up loose strings

    13. J Del Rey

      He’s calm when he speaks !

    14. Bryce

      Him in DC would've been so nice.

      1. WizManBallin

        Nah, DC would suck KD dry. Too many needy fans here at the mo...thought if circumstances were right? Yes.

      2. Lyndon Simmons

        Noooooo wouldn’t be good for him

    15. 31 Hoops

      14:50 Kevin Garnett... Wow!

      1. 1BrotherMack

        Crazy disrespect !

    16. Grant Jackson

      Kevin durant will never be a respected champion, he shouldn't even be a champion he just sold out so hard it was guaranteed rings, its like going to the gas station and buying some ring pops bro. his legacy will always be remembered for selling out and losing that 3-1 to then later join them

      1. Milad •

        Opinions over statistics of course

      2. Meek Bethea

        The man got finals mvp. He won at least one of those!

      3. Juggernaut X

        Grant Jackson and u talkin bout sum that occured 4 seasons ago. Lmaooo

      4. Juggernaut X

        Grant Jackson i mean ring or no ring he still was gonna be top 15

      5. John G

        It’s not like he asked to be traded to GS he was a free agent but I get what you sayin

    17. Odell Georgia

      Brooklyn's finest "Ray Mula - RAF" just drop tune in

    18. TheeChronicle

      Pop97

    19. Sly Fox

      1. Odell Georgia

    20. GodLovesXans

      Youngboy the hottest rn y’all tweaking

      1. James Matthews

        lil baby really the goat tho

      2. Denise F

        Yeah okay

      3. Fuck Your joke

        GodLovesXans talent =/= being the hottest

    21. heyySeco

      lets not ignore how he said kevin garnett in the first 10 seconds lmaoo

      1. TOAST Thoughts Of A Stoner Tube

        😂😂😂

    22. Donny Martin

      “I’m just a normal guy to be honest”

    23. Kelly Huffaker

      its so refreshing hearing these guest athletes cuss

    24. xxxB13xxx

      I am a bias warriors fan, but glad KD is chilling in New York. Thinking his journey is more mentoring the younger kids.

      1. Jose Fuentes

        xxxB13xxx I compared the rosters and the warriors are the younger team by a good amount if you check the whole depth of both teams. Curry is the oldest on the team at 31. This meaning kd didn’t take that as another reason to leave because it wouldn’t make any sense.

    25. mm mm

      ebro is terrible at talking. he trying to be annoying

      1. matthew wilkinson

        mm mm he’s so trash

    26. rosan ghale

      🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍

    27. Amir Cobb

      very humble

    28. Nate

      It’s kind of hard to believe whatever KD says anymore, given how much he reacts to. Losing a 3-1 lead, and a chance at going to the NBA Finals, isn’t in his top 5 losses in his career?? All the other ones he mentioned weren’t nearly as bad.

      1. Trill Kevin

        Obongo SLAT SLIME Otongi you sound dumb as hell he already a legend y’all be saying anything y’all weird as hell 😭😂

      2. Obongo SLAT SLIME Otongi

        Yeah he’s absolutely a fraud. He himself knows he hasn’t really accomplished any great feats in the NBA yet and yet he tries to force everyone else to believe it. He says it out loud so much he’s trying to make himself believe it.

      3. Juggernaut X

        Nate tru but like they 73-9 regardless

      4. King Ligon

        Nate I was thinking the same thing 😭😭😭. Like that’s bullshit you were up 3-1 one win away from the finals, your 2nd finals ever

    29. Osman Syed

      they didnt evn ask about russell and james teaming up again

      1. Prime Ghostt

        Yeah that would have been a good question. They should have asked if the 3 of them thought of teaming up again.

      2. thanos first of his kind

        Why would they? That's irrelevant

    30. jeff blackman

      14:49 Kevin Garnet bro lmao

    36. Tyler Grant

      3:54 when th third wall in radio comes down you see how ebro unviels th politics of radio he created at hot 97 to kill hip hop ..in new york ..smfh

    37. md riverrdale

      Signing Kevin Durant might be one Of the greatest ripoffs in the last century He will never be the same And the Dr. That cleared him I would sue for MALPRACTICE. Hey Nets are you interested In buying the Brooklyn btidge.

      1. Obongo SLAT SLIME Otongi

        What’s wrong with the bridge... 😐

      2. Lyndon Simmons

        md riverrdale man kd will be perfect fine let me tell you why he a shooter mid range long distances so with that alone he’s good plus he’s kd the best player in the world

      3. md riverrdale

        @مقبرة الغزاة what does bias have to do with it. This is a medical opinion on Achilles tears. Why do you think it takes A year to recover?

      4. md riverrdale

        @Lyndon Simmons it is a major Injury and 90% of athletes lose a step.when they reach the thirties. You may disagree with my diagnosis however I assure you I have not lost it as of know

      5. مقبرة الغزاة

        You sound so bias and closed minded. Just be man enough to admit that you were wrong when he comes back and dominates

    44. Marvid Eladiv

      The Knicks Magement of Steve Mills and Steve Perry are the two of the biggest liars on the Planet besides Republicans and Donald Trump. The Lie was that Porzingus asked to be traded or that he would not play for the Knicks. That is the bigus lie that the kn8cks management want knicks fans want to believe. The Knicks traded Porzingus to clear cap space so they could get Khyrie Irvin and Kevin Durant. What is the difference between trading one star who was recovering from an injury and having two stars whom are oftern injured and now recovering from injuries? The problem is the gullible Knicks fans will believe any lie. Perry and Mills tell the fanbase and support the Knicks and the knicks fans will still buy Knicks tickets to support the Knicks. Wake up Knicks fans you have been lied too and been bamboozled and hoodwinked. Porzingus will become a star on The Mavericks and Kevin Durant and Khrue Irvin never wanted to be Knicks which they see as a losing team without Star players. The Knicks hope to recover but these type of lies and mismanagement from Perry and Mills will impact the Knicks for many years to come.

    45. PRINCE KD

      3. M l

        Westbrook would not have allowed it to happen. KD was the better player, but Westbrook still took the most shots. He's already top 50 on missed shots KD #63. www.basketball-reference.com/leaders/fgx_career.html
