But not everyone in the crowd – sure to contain Wizards fans – was inclined to cheer Durant. Some even went to the other extreme.
JP Finlay of CSN Mid-Atlantic:
Wizards fans preemptively booed Durant in Washington before he signed with the Wizards. Seeing Durant actually spurn his hometown team didn’t soothe any hurt feelings.
Maybe a few boos were always inevitable in a large crowd. But it’s still surprising to hear anyone so aggrieved that they’ll boo Durant while he’s be celebrated for winning a gold medal for the USA.
Perhaps, Durant knew something when he sulked inside for two days after choosing Golden State.
