Myles Garrett Slams Kevin Durant For ‘Riding Coattails’ To Win Title

Having been drafted by the Browns, Myles Garrett may not know much about winning, but he does have an opinion on the right and wrong way to do it.

The defensive end and Cleveland resident blasted Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant on Thursday coming off the teams third championship in four years.

“KD broke the league,” Garrett told ‘The Ken Carman Show with Anthony Lima’ and 92.3 The Fan when asked he watched the finals.

“You hopped onto a 73-9 team and he took the easy way out in my mind,” Garrett said. “It’s different when LeBron left. He went to Wade and Bosh but it wasn’t something that was already guaranteed, something you already knew was going to have immediate success. [James] had to gel and work things into place.

Garrett was of course referring to the then Oklahoma City Thunder free agent’s decision to join the team he had just lost to in order to set himself up to finally win a title.

“With KD, you just stick him in and he scores. You already knew what they had. They were 73-9 before and you put the second-best player in the world on an already all-time great team and of course you’re going to have success, pretty easy success. Anyone can have an off night and they can still find a way to win.”

“If I were him I would’ve never made a move like that in the first place,” he said. “Me, I’m too competitive to try and ride on somebody’s coat tails to get a W. But for him, you might as well stay at the spot you’re at now. There’s no point in leaving since you’ve already taken that moniker where he’s been called the snake and cupcake and all that. You might as well stay and just keep on winning.”
