Few basketball players have been more critical of Kevin Durant‘s decision to join the Golden State Warriors than Paul Pierce. Back in October, Pierce called out Durant and everyone else who has formed a superteam, saying “Guys I don’t think they are as hungry or competitive as my generation was, and that’s why you’ll probably see more of that.”
Fast forward a few months and Durant’s Warriors are a few days away from playing in the NBA Finals. Should Golden State win, it would mean that Durant got the championship that he so badly wanted when he joined the team.
But for Pierce, it’s still kind of gross that Durant joined Golden State. The now-former member of the Los Angeles Clippers appeared on ESPN’s The Jump and used a metaphor to explain why he’s still against Durant’s move.
