Kevin Durant offers rare hint on future: It's 'toxic' around LeBron James

But the four-time NBA MVP showed no sign of distraction as he scored 42 points in the 121-113 win over the Spurs, helping his team to overcome an eight-point fourth-quarter deficit, before telling reporters his performance had nothing to do with silencing critics.

He began by stating what type of players work with LeBron.

Among the multitudinous NBAers asked about the topic, Kevin Durant had some noteworthy ideas.

"I think the business side of it is obviously really fascinating to me", Durant said.

"So much hype comes from being around LeBron from other people", Durant told the website. It's not LeBron's fault at all; it's just the fact you have so many groupies in the media that love to hang on every word.

"And I just think I don't like when negative articles come out like that, even if it's not about my teammate, but about my teammate, somebody who carries teams the way he does, I just think we're nitpicking". After all, James is one of the players that advocated - and possibly even planned - for Chandler to join the Lakers.

Suns' Booker departs loss to Lakers with hamstring injury
Booker had scored scored six points in 17 minutes before leaving with a strained hamstring in the second quarter. The Suns listed Booker as questionable to return.

Following the Lakers game against the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday night, James was given the opportunity to comment on what Durant said but he declined to do so saying he wanted to get a chance to look at what Durant said in full and not just one clip. Especially when the attention is (B.S.) attention, fluff.

Last month, a Twitter user claimed the Lakers were in trade talks with the Wizards over Wall and were offering three players in return - Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.

"If you're a younger player like a Kawhi, trying to pair him with LeBron James doesn't really make sense. Like, young players that are still developing, it's always going to be hard because he demands the ball so much, he demands control of the offense and he creates for everybody".

"Guys similar to [LeBron], why would they want to play with somebody who does all the same things?" A lot of young players are developing that skill. Bosh, same way. LeBron is a player that needs to play with guys that already know how they play the game-and shooters. Why not? Especially somebody who's gone through it and been through just about everything as an National Basketball Association player, outside of getting traded, I've been through pretty much everything. Ariza said. "I can see why they would want to play elsewhere".

"I'm past the personal stage", James said.

"He's very unselfish. He's won multiple championships with other superstars. He's a victor and he's an incredible player and he's unselfish".
