Yeah how would someone not know that tearing an achilles isnt good? When you were talking about his free agency I assumed you meant his money not his on court success, definitely agree that a terrible achilles injury will affect his basketball success.Maybe he didn't want to stay in GS? Maybe he wanted to go somewhere else, and recruit another star player to go with him? Who is going to follow KD now, wait around for a year, and pray that he comes back the same player that he was before the injury?
… Do you know the statistics regarding a torn achilles? And this is his plant leg, where he gets all of his explosion from.
There is a change... a HUGE chance... that he will never be Kevin Durant again, and everyone around the league knows it.
