Kevin Wayne Durant (born September 29, 1988 in Washington, D.C.) is an American basketball player who is currently under contract at the Brooklyn Nets. He came to the NBA as a Small Forward / Shooting Guard, but is often used as a Power Forward due to its size. Durant, among other things, is characterized by its strong ball treatment with a height of 2.08 meters.
James Harden started with the Brooklyn Nets disappointing to the season and can not build on his usual achievements. After defeat against the Miami Heat, the 32-year-old explained that this also has to do with his offseason.
Hards curled over the summer a thigh injury, which he had pulled himself last season. So far, he has not found his rhythm again, even at the 93: 106 bankruptcy against Miami, he came only to 14 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists.
According to information of espn Stats & Info, harden has now laid up 15 points or less for the first time since 2011/12 in three games. The superstar asked in the episode for some patience. I have to become a self-confident, be aggressive, Harden said after his 4/12 performance.
It s going to be better with every game. So I just like to hang up again 30, 40 points, I can not. I would obviously like to do it.
James harden asks for patience
The MVP of 2018 comes in the previous season to an average of 16.6 points, last season, it had been 24.6 counters in the jersey of the Nets. However, he could already participate in the playoffs only very limited and not working in the summer as usual at his game.
I had no ways to make any games this summer, Harden said. Everything was rehab for three months, from an injury that I suffered three times in a season. This was my fifth game against real opponents. So I d like to rush everything and simply watch it s time, you have to let time be time.
The Nets do not yet manage to compensate for hardens of weak shape, even because with Kyrie Irving the third star in the league is missing. Irving does not want to vaccinate so far and therefore can not complete home games in New York, the franchise meanwhile did not only have him for away games as part-time power.
Kevin Durant: Yes, we miss Kyrie
I know what you want to hear from me, Kevin Durant said after defeat against Miami, after which his team is now at a 2-3 balance. Yes, we miss Kyrie. Of course, he s part of our team.
Meanwhile, it was about to seek to look for his rhythm in an unfamiliar situation. I was blessed by my career. I did not need any operations or the like. That s why this whole process was very frustrating and powerful last year, Harden admitted.
It was fortifying for me to know that I could not just be myself. But I m coming back there again. It just takes a lot of hard work. But it will happen. You just have to fight on, and I ll do that.
