Kevin Durant is apparently back to being PC again.
Just a few days after blowing his top with the media and saying he no longer feels the need to be politically correct in his responses, the normally level headed NBA star apologized for the remarks.
Durant had grown upset in an interview during All Star Game Weekend after reporters asked him about the job security of his coach, Scott Brooks.
In a tense exchange with reporters, Kevin Durant grew angry and told the group, “You guys really don’t know s***.”
Durant remarked that he didn’t like the questions, so when a reporter asked what kind he would like to answer, Durant laid into the group.
“To be honest, man, I’m only here talking to y’all because I have to,” Durant said.
“So I really don’t care. Y’all not my friends. You’re going to write what you want to write. You’re going to love us one day and hate us the next. That’s a part of it. So I just learn how to deal with y’all.”
But on Wednesday the Oklahoma City Thunder star apologized for the outburst, noting that until that point he’d had a great relationship with the press.
“Let’s be real. Let’s look at the whole thing,” Durant said. “I’ve been in the league eight years. The media and myself have had a great relationship for eight years. And I said something, two days in a row I said something. Am I allowed to be upset one time? Am I allowed to be mad? Am I human? Do you look at me that way? Do you look at me as if I can’t say nothing wrong? We had great communication for eight years, and it’s still that way.”
Kevin Durant added that he simply “had a moment” and while he regretted the way it came across, he was not ashamed of speaking up against what he felt was an attack on his team and his coach.
