When the Brooklyn Nets landed Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving three years ago, who would've thought we'd end up here?

According to longtime NBA reporter Marc Stein, "One team executive believes Kevin Durant is more apt to retire than play again for the Brooklyn Nets."

This one got NBA Twitter buzzing.

"He will then retire as a ringless fraud," one user commented.

"Hi this is known team executive Devin Kurant," tweeted Tyler Dunn.

"Bro what."

"This would be hilarious, but don’t hold your breath," said The Dream Shake.

"Gimme a break with this nonsense," replied Carlo Colaiacovo.

"What????" asked D'Courtland Christian.

"Y’all seriously expect us to believe this?" another asked.

Brian Windhorst believes KD and the Nets could be headed for a training camp holdout, so things could get even messier before this is over.
