Charles Barkley: Kevin Durant trying 'to cheat' his way to title

Soon after Kevin Durant revealed his decision to leave Oklahoma City in favor of Golden State through five paragraphs on The Players Tribune, Twitter, the Internet, and everyone in the sports world entered a state a shock and disbelief, resulting in volatile reactions.

Professional hot taker, Stephen A. Smith even went as far as calling Durant a coward for his decision to play basketball in another city.
