Does Kevin Durant Think He Was Fouled By LeBron James?

New, comment

Thursday night's game in the NBA Finals was very, very good. Unfortunately, controversy surrounds the ending because, perhaps correctly, there are quite a few people that believe Kevin Durant was fouled by LeBron James just prior to the Miami Heat holding on for the victory.

It shouldn't be a surprise, then, that Durant was asked about the questionable play during his post-game press conference.

"Are you saying you don't think you got mugged by LeBron on that last play?" a reporter in the crowd asked.

"You weren't fouled?!" the reporter continued increduously, before giving Durant the chance to answer. "You don't believe you were fouled?"

"I missed the shot, man," Durant responded, apparently believing that's all that needed to be said as he began to wait for the next question.

It was probably the more politically correct answer from Durant as opposed to how he was truly feeling, but it takes quite a bit of composure to give that answer to that question considering the circumstances.
