Fans already have their theories.
It was no surprise that the LeBron James-less Los Angeles Lakers lost 108-90 against the Golden State Warriors last night. The Lakers are a lost cause, while the Warriors look like they are well on their way to a fourth championship in five years. While the game itself wasn't a big story, the conversation that occurred between James and Kevin Durant became the talk of the night. During a timeout, both players covered their faces and sneakily had a conversation that led some people to believe that LeBron was trying to recruit Durant to the Lakers or maybe even Space Jam 2. Of course, Durant is a free agent this summer.
After the game, KD made sure to dispell all of the rumors that were going around. Durant isn't one to entertain rumors so it's no surprise that he ended up downplaying the whole thing.
“Everybody wants to know what we’re talking about,” Durant said. “It wasn’t even that serious. Just laughing and joking and catching up. Everybody is so interested, especially in LeBron. So whoever he talks to, the lipreaders are going to try to figure that out. You guys are infatuated with that whole thing. It’s fun. People try to figure it out.”
As of right now, Durant hasn't confirmed where he wants to go next season, so it only makes sense that fans would be speculating this hard.
