Kevin Durant abruptly ends his news conference due to an unusual noise

BY Nunzio Ingrassia • June 6, 2017

Usually a player will storm out of a news conference because of a reporter’s question, but Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant had an unusual reason for abruptly leaving Tuesday’s media availability.

As Durant was being asked a question about teammate Draymond Green, the air conditioning unit above Durant began making a loud, strange sound. It was so unnerving it startled the reporter and caused Durant to look up at the ceiling multiple times.

“It’s scaring me a little bit,” Durant admitted. “Yeah, that thing’s shaking a little bit, buddy.”

Durant wasn’t willing to wait out the disturbance and opted to leave early.

The four-time scoring champ obviously prescribes to the better-safe-than-sorry philosophy.
