«I just think the way they look at the game is amazing,» Durant said in a recorded clip of the session.
«You take into account the success of the team when you talk about the players. I just think that the way they consume the game is rubbish, like are you good or not?»
KEVIN DURANT APPLAUDES AFTER LATEST CHARLES BARKLEY CRITICISM: ‘I DON’T NEED ANY CREDIT FROM YOU ALL’
Durant appeared to enter the chat about 40 minutes after it started.
Durant added that, from his point of view, NBA player ratings are meaningless.
«I mean, some things could be that simple. Are you good or nah? I mean, a lot of people have seen it for a long time bro, and it’s okay. These lists don’t really mean anything anyway, so why Are you so upset about them?»
Although Durant has had an impressive career and won two championships with the Golden State Warriors, some critics have argued that he benefited from being on a team filled with talent.
NBA legend Charles Barkley, one of Durant’s most vocal critics, also noted that the Warriors won championships before his arrival.
Durant left Golden State to play for the Brooklyn Nets. In February, he was traded to the Suns. He hasn’t made it to the NBA Finals since he left the Warriors.
The Nets advanced to the Eastern Conference semifinals in 2021.
Durant’s decision to jump into a Twitter Spaces discussion as himself is a departure from his previous behavior. In 2017, he appeared to use a prepaid account to respond to people who criticized him for leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder.

He later apologized for mentioning Billy Donovan, his coach at Oklahoma City.
«I don’t regret clapping for anyone or talking to my fans on Twitter,» Durant said. «I’m sorry to use the name of my former coach and the old organization I played for. That was childish. That was idiotic. All those kinds of words… I’m sorry I did that and I apologize for doing it.»
Durant also admitted that he has a secret Instagram account for his «friends and family.»
