"I looked at a couple of techs, and the plays, and I was being an a- hole last night", Durant said after practice Wednesday.
While Durant hasn't typically had these reactions throughout his career, he already has 10 technical fouls this season (he had eight in 2016-17), and he has four ejections after being thrown out of just one game in his first 10 years.
Durant slammed Williams after the game in his press conference, saying, "He was looking to tech me up to get me back because he was still in his feelings from the first half". I could be better. "It was a great learning experience for me".
Warriors forward Kevin Durant said his ejection Tuesday was the result of official James Williams getting personal, something Durant believes is part of a trend in the National Basketball Association.
With a night to sleep on it, Kevin Durant has realized he was in the wrong for his actions and comments during and after Tuesday's game against the Knicks. I get upset. But, I will move on. He was searching for me.
"So second half, his whole thing was like he's trying to get me", Durant said Tuesday.
Sure, Durant and Beasley are from the same area, but the Warriors superstar said he believes deeply in the often-misunderstood Knicks forward who signed for the veteran's minimum in the summer on recommendation of associate coach Kurt Rambis. "I was being a diva last night". "I kind of just owned up to". I was like, 'Man, I was wondering why he coming at me so hard. Then I watched the plays and I was like, yeah, I looked like a jerk out there.
Ironically, Draymond Green played peacekeeper, suggesting his Warriors teammate to walk away from the turmoil and back into his defensive spot before he warranted another technical, though it was all for naught.
Tension between players and officials has been a dominant theme this season, with multiple star players criticizing the manner in which they have been treated by the referees. "I think that's what's been irritating a lot of guys. All of these refs have been around for so long, and it's never been this bad".
"Yeah, the irony", Durant said. I said, 'That's what a crossover is for.
