Kevin Durant’s mother, Wanda has her son’s back.
On Tuesday, she shared a message for anyone who second-guessed her son’s heart and dedication to the Golden State Warriors during the NBA Finals.
She wrote, “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.”
Durant had been unable to play due to a calf injury, but made his return for Game 5 of the Finals. However, early in the second quarter, he suffered another injury, which some believe could be an Achilles heel tear. Some Toronto Raptors fans cheered and applauded when Durant fell, and have been criticized by Durant's teammates.
Since the injury, Durant has received support from his team and other celebrities.
