Nets' Kevin Durant addresses social media fight with Michael Rapaport and hamstring injury

0


The Brooklyn Nets star has not played an NBA game for nearly seven weeks. That left Kevin Durant fielding plenty of questions about his strained left hamstring, which has kept him sidelined for the past 20 games and counting.

“I feel great,” Durant said Thursday before the Nets played the Charlotte Hornets. “I feel like it’ll be soon that I can be out there with my teammates.”

Yet, Durant did not just address his injury and subsequent rehab. Durant also apologized for having an argument with comedian Michael Rapaport on Twitter via direct message, a private conversation that Rapaport made public because of Durant’s frequent personal insults, homophobic slurs and profanity.

“I’m sorry that people have seen that language I’ve used,” Durant said. “It’s not really what I want people to see and hear from me. But hopefully I can move past it and get back on the floor.”

Durant is active on his social media accounts and often responds directly to media members and fans that criticize him.
