I don't know if it's getting out in front of why Kevin Durant was playing tonight considering the severity of the injury, but there are some real issues here.
While some Toronto Raptors fans could be heard cheering when Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant went down with an Achilles injury in Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Monday night, one citizen from the famously polite country made a decision to send flowers instead.
So when Kevin Durant limped out of game five of the NBA Finals on Monday just 12 minutes into his comeback, the former world number one knew it was serious. "And we saw it last night with Kevin". "He just told me he was going to be okay and not to worry". I know what it feels like.

According to The Toronto Sun, the campaign likely won't get as much worldwide media coverage as the crowd celebrating Durant's Achilles injury, even though it deserves to, since "the truth is, no one around here was enjoying Durant being hurt". However, he may not be in almost as much contract trouble as some people believe. Those were lonely days for Woods, and he knows that's what could lie ahead for Durant.
"If he popped it, then that's six to nine months of rehabbing", said Woods.
"Why do we do it?"". Because we're competitors. As athletes our job is to make the human body do something it was never meant to do and to do it efficiently and better than anybody who is doing it at the same time. "When you are emotional, you can sometimes forget, but the good thing about it, the crowd was cheering his name and to me that's most important".
Prior to the injury, Durant was expected to command well over $30 million a season on a new deal. Golf and basketball require vastly different skill sets and place vastly different physical demands on their players, obviously.
