Brooklyn Nets' Kevin Durant apologizes for the social media messages that surfaced between him and actor Michael Rapaport. Durant also gives an update on his injury and how he feels about the additions of Blake Griffin and LaMarcus Aldridge to Brooklyn.
In the exchange, Durant wrote out several homophobic insults directed at Rapaport after the actor originally called out the NBA star for how he handled an interview on national television.
Speaking to the media Thursday, Durant said, "I'm sorry that people have seen the language I used. That's not what I want people to see or hear from me." Nets coach Steve Nash also broached the topic, saying that an internal discussion over the messages was had, but the details were withheld from reporters covering the press conference.
Durant took to Twitter on Tuesday to apologize to Rapaport for his actions.
