With the prevailing presumption that Kevin Durant injured his Achilles in the second quarter of Game 5, many fans and analysts alike are thinking about the implications this injury will have on the looming free agency landscape.
However, if one was to direct their attention back to the moment when KD went down with the apparent Achilles tear, you could hear the fans cheering at Durant coming up lame. Steph Curry spoke about that specific moment during his postgame presser where he reflected on his time living in Toronto while his father was a member of the Raptors and essentially said the cheering was unbecoming of the Torontonians.
