Kevin Durant Has A Strong Message of Advice For NBA Draft Prospects

Leading up the NBA draft, the prospects often go through the NBA draft combine in front of scouts from various teams. However, it isn’t a mandatory event for all players to workout. In light of that, Kevin Durant recently voiced a stern message for the NBA hopefuls, according to ESPN’s Chris Haynes.

“Stay your a– home, work out, and get better on your own time.”

“I remember it like it was yesterday. All the strength coaches were laughing at me and s—. They were giggling with each other that I couldn’t lift 185

pounds and I was like, ‘All right, keep laughing. Keep laughing.’ It was a funny thing because I was the only one that couldn’t lift it and I was struggling to lift it. I was embarrassed at that point, but I’m like, ‘Give me a basketball, please. Give me a ball.’”

Durant didn’t exactly have the best pre-draft experience that he hoped to get. The talk around him wasn’t his ability on the court but rather that he couldn’t bench 185 pounds. It became one of the biggest talking points about him rather what his potential in the NBA could be.

Aside from that, there wasn’t a valid reason for Durant to be at the event. He was already locked in as one of the top players to be taken in that draft class. Ultimately, Durant’s advice is that the NBA prospects should work at their own workouts for teams to see rather than one set up by the league.
