KD Says He’s Sorry, But Not Sorry & Then Deletes Apology Over Kawhi Tweet

Kevin Durant needs to stop being wishy washy. Stop tweeting and Instagramming things then deleting them five minutes later. I would hate to see him trying to order from McDonald’s. The entire thing is silly. He gave his opinion on Kawhi and Paul George.   Nothing wrong with what he said, just giving an opinion. Who cares if anyone agrees or disagrees with it, he is entitled to...
