KD comments on Ben Simmons joining the Nets, selects Rudy Gobert over James Harden in All-Star draft
Kevin Durant is currently getting thrown into the fire during TNT’s All-Star Team Draft tonight. KD and Lebron James are captains for the Eastern and Western Conferences, and after today’s blockbuster trade that sent Ben Simmons, Seth Curry, and Andre Drummond to Brooklyn for James Harden and Paul Millsap, the TNT crew couldn’t help themselves.
While looking over the players that were available on the board, Lebron James comments that Harden hasn’t been healthy, which Charles Barkley quickly corrected him letting him know that “he’s healthy now.” James couldn’t control his laughter, with KD was also laughing, shaking his head and probably thinking “shit..”.
KD discussed the trade in general and said said that both sides of the trade “got what they wanted.” Barkley then asked him if he had a full time psychiatrist on staff to help guide him through dealing with Harden, Kyrie Irving, and now, Ben Simmons.
From there, KD was left with two options for his final pick to the Eastern Conference All-Star team. The final two options were Rudy Gobert and James Harden (lol). Lebron James was laughing his ass off, as KD ended up taking Rudy Gobert of Harden.
Cheers to KD, who played it off perfectly and actually gave a reason for picking Gobert over Harden, but there was absolutely no way in hell he was taking Harden after he picked up and headed to Philly.
