“(Durant) is always sending me motivational things, though some things may need to be censored,” Ingram told The Vertical’s Michael Lee.
“He sees a lot in me. He actually told me to block out everything and be the killer that I am. To get a lot of guys around this league that see what I can be, it does nothing but make me want to work harder.”
Kevin Durant is a fucking weirdo. Shout out to Brandon Ingram for putting up with Durant’s unsolicited advice. “Be the killer that you are”. Dude, chill. I’m sure from Ingram’s perspective it’s flattering to get encouragement from a superstar player that you have been compared to physically since entering the NBA.
But Durant is a loser and the most swagless player in the NBA. If I’m in the NBA, I want a text from James Harden saying ‘meet me at the strip club, we need to talk’. I don’t want Durant breathing down my neck like ‘you got this, daddy’. Get Durant OUT of here.
I don’t think Brandon Ingram is going to suddenly transform into the next scoring champ. If anything, he’s probably the next Julius Randle. That’s the most disrespectful thing I’ve ever said and I apologize. All I know is that I don’t want Durant sending my Edible Arrangements with a note that reads “you looked really pretty in your jersey tonight”.
