Credit is due to Toronto’s Kyle Lowry and fellow teammates who were telling the fans to stop cheering.
DeMarcus Cousins was asked about the fans who questioned Durant’s heart after the first injury and how the Toronto fans cheered during his second injury. Warning: The video contains explicit language.
DeMarcus Cousins kills it here. Even though it should be said there was also a round of applause when Kevin Durant was leaving the court. Salute to those classy fans. You should never cheer any bad luck no matter how much you despise a person. #NBAFinalspic.twitter.com/xey3GblYIf

Kevin Durant’s mom went to Twitter last night to defend her son, saying “For ALL of you who question my son as a man, question his heart, question his integrity and question his LOVE for the game of basketball, you DON’T know him. He has a heart of a true Warrior! This too shall pass. God bless you ALL.”
The Warriors have said they believed Durant suffered an achilles tear.
Our thoughts and prayer are with him for a full recovery.
