Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr says its absurd to cast Kevin Durant as a villain because he left the Oklahoma City Thunder as a free agent and joined the Warriors this summer.To think of Kevin Durant or Steph Curry or any of our guys as villains, its kind of absurd. Especially Kevin, Kerr said Sunday in an interview on ESPN Radios TMI with Michelle Beadle and Ramona Shelburne. This is one of the most likeable people in this league. Hes just an awesome human being. What he did in Oklahoma City was just amazing for that community.Kerr added: Circumstances kind of dictate, I guess, that some people are going to see him as a villain. But its only because he decided to go elsewhere to play. He wanted to change his scenery, he wanted a new challenge. More than anything he wanted to play with our guys. He loves Draymond [Green] and Steph and Klay [Thompson] and Andre [Iguodala]. Seeing those guys in New York, he loved seeing the chemistry that exists and he wanted to be a part of it.Durant said last month that he didnt leave the house hed rented in the Hamptons for 48 hours after he announced his decision because he knew how strongly fans would react to him leaving.For a few days after, I didnt leave my bed, because I was like, If I walk outside somebody might just hit me with their car, or say anything negative to me, Durant said last month at Team USA training camp in Las Vegas.I mean, Ive been somewhere for so long, and then to make a change like that, [which] nobody knew was coming, that nobody didnt think I would do, of course I didnt know how it would be received afterward. But at some point, I just said, Look, man, life goes on. Life moves on, and I cant hide forever, so I just had to face it.Durant was warmly received by his new home crowd at Oracle Arena last month when Team USA played an exhibition game against China, but he was booed at Staples Center before Team USAs exhibition game in Los Angeles a few days earlier. Fans in Oklahoma City notoriously burned Durants jersey after he decided to sign with the Warriors.Durant also has drawn criticism from former players like TNT commentators Charles Barkley and Reggie Miller.I was disappointed. I was disappointed like I was disappointed when LeBron [James] went to Miami, Barkley said on ESPN Radios Mike & Mike last month. Kevin is a terrific player. Hes a good kid. But just disappointed with the fact that he weakened another team and hes gonna kind of gravy-train on a terrific Warriors team. Just disappointed from a competitive standpoint. Because just like it meant more to LeBron to win one in Cleveland, it would mean more to Kevin to win one in Oklahoma than it would be in Golden State.Barkley, of course, was part of a superteam himself during his NBA career when he was traded to the Houston Rockets in 1996 after he said hed retire if the Phoenix Suns didnt trade him to a contender.People are going to view him however they want, Kerr said Sunday. But we all know what kind of person he is and what kind of impact hes had around the league.Kerr was also asked about the recent series of mishaps All-Star forward Draymond Green has gone through this summer. Green had to pay $560 for a noise violation in a plea deal to settle a misdemeanor assault-and-battery charge in East Lansing, Michigan. Then last week he accidentally posted a lewd picture of himself on the social media app Snapchat.Kerr said both he and Warriors general manager Bob Myers have been in touch with Green throughout the summer.With Draymond hes obviously the one guy that sort of walks the line, tows the line, hes had some issues during the season, whether its being demonstrative on the floor or the locker room or whatever, or getting suspended, Kerr said Sunday. But the thing with Draymond, and I learned this from [Michigan State coach] Tom Izzo ... He said Draymond is going to make you pull your hair out sometimes, but hes such a great guy and a team guy and hes got such a huge heart that hes always going to come back around. He said, The big thing with Draymond is challenge him and be up front with him. Dont be afraid to yell at him. Thats the way weve kind of approached it.Draymond and I, weve gotten into it many times ... but theres never any lingering ill will. Bob and I try to keep the momentum going. Every once in a while theres a hiccup and we address it ... but he always gets back on track.As for the lewd photo on Snapchat, Kerr made light of Greens statement at the time by joking, All I know is Im one click away from making a horrible mistake, I know that. Thats what I learned from Draymonds mistake. Were all one click away. Phil Jackson Knicks Jersey . Defencemen Drew Doughty, Shea Weber and forward Ryan Getzlaf also scored for the Canadians, who started their gold-medal defence 2-0. Goalie Roberto Luongo, getting the call in place of Game 1 starter Carey Price, was solid when needed in making 23 saves for the shutout. Damyean Dotson Knicks Jersey . 1 position. The Mustangs (6-0), who beat Queens 50-31 last weekend, earned 17 first-place votes and 287 points in voting by the Football Reporters of Canada. Western was last ranked first in the country in October 2011. http://www.knickssale.com/kids-tracy-mcgrady-knicks-jersey/ . -- Charlie Graham stopped 67 shots as the Belleville Bulls edged the visiting Guelph Storm 6-5 on Saturday in Ontario Hockey League action. Willis Reed Knicks Jersey .Y. - Detroit goaltender Jonas Gustavsson has earned NHL first star of the week honours after winning in his first three appearances of the season. Tracy McGrady Jersey . P.A. Parenteau scored early in the third period to help the Avs edge Toronto 2-1 on Tuesday night. Cory Sarich also scored for Colorado (3-0-0), which is off to its best ever start. Each week, Ill write about the sport I love: college basketball.I love the fact that Virginia and VCU have agreed to play a home-and-home series, starting in 2017. The fans in the state are the big winners. Congrats to coaches Tony Bennett and Will Wade for getting this done.Defending national champion Villanova went 3-0 on a trip to Spain.?Josh Hart took charge for the Wildcats and enjoyed a great trip. Jay Wright had to be happy with Eric Paschall, the transfer from Fordham who played well on the trip. Keep an eye on Villanova again. There is a lot of talent returning.Like father, like son. Kellen McCormick, who transferred from Western Michigan to Georgia Tech, is the son of former Michigan center and TV analyst Tim McCormick.dddddddddddd He will provide another big body for new coach Josh Pastner.Down in the SEC, it will be interesting to see how Cullen Neal fares at Mississippi. He played for his father, Craig at New Mexico but transferred to Andy Kennedys program and will be eligible right away.Fans in Utah will have something to cheer about. Over a three-year span from 2017-19, the Beehive Classic will take place, featuring, BYU, Utah, Utah State and Weber State in a series of doubleheaders. For 2017, the matchups are BYU vs. Weber State and Utah State vs. Utah. ' ' '
