Boston Celtics reporter bashes Kevin Durant - “I don’t want to win with that s*** head”

Ryan got his wish, as the C's ended up not landing Durant, but it appears as if they will still be competitive next season even without Durant on their roster
Boston Celtics reporter bashes Kevin Durant - “I don’t want to win with that s*** head”

Many were against the Celtics' involvement in the Durant trade saga, including longtime Celtics reporter Bob Ryan

Kevin Durant is staying put in Brooklyn for the upcoming 2022-23 season, despite trade rumors persisting throughout the offseason. One of the teams that was rumored to be quite involved in the Durant sweepstakes was the Boston Celtics. The Celtics were reportedly willing to offer star guard Jaylen Brown in a deal for Durant, which was surprising considering the C's recently made it all the way to the 2022 NBA Finals just last season.

Celtics reporter Bob Ryan lights up the Celtics for their involvement in the Durant trade sweepstakes

Boston's involvement in the Durant trade sweepstakes was a bit confusing. Why would they want to trade away Brown, who is nearly ten years younger than Durant, after he helped lead them to the Finals last season? As Jayson Tatum labored through the Finals against the Golden State Warriors, Brown was arguably the Celtics' best player.

As a result, many were against the Celtics' involvement in the Durant trade saga, including longtime Celtics reporter Bob Ryan. Ryan lit up both the Celtics and Durant recently, saying that he "doesn't want to win with that s*** head" in reference to Durant. It was certainly a fiery hot take from Ryan here, and it drew a lot of attention from all over the NBA.

Ryan's opinions on Durant are certainly controversial

While Ryan pleads with the Celtics not to trade for Durant, he spends most of that clip bashing Durant. Ryan certainly isn't among Durant's top fans and repeatedly claims he "doesn't want to win with him." Ryan enjoys watching the current Celtics squad as currently constructed and would rather see them win now than without Durant.

On the one hand, it's easy to understand where he's coming from. The Celtics went from being one of the most unlikeable teams in the NBA to one of the most likable in the blink of an eye last season. With key additions in Malcolm Brogdon and Danilo Gallinari, they figure to be one of the favorites to make it back to the Finals next season.

Of course, adding Durant to the equation would certainly help, but the Celtics, much like every other team in the league, were scared off by the Brooklyn Nets' asking price. Ryan appears to have gotten his wish, and even though the C's didn't end up landing Durant, they appear poised to be able to put together a strong season regardless.
