The Golden State Warriors star was involved in a heated back-and-forth discussion with reporters after helping his side beat the San Antonio Spurs.
Durant had gone silent for a week, refusing to talk to any members of the media, as speculation ramped up regarding his next move.
Many believe that he will opt out of the final year of his contract and become a free agent, with a potential move to the New York Knicks being touted.
But the 30-year-old refused to comment on any speculation over his future, instead insisting that he just wanted to talk about matters on court.
However, in his press conference, the questions came up again, leading the superstar to erupt at reporters over why they kept pressing the subject.
Then, when asked about the game, he stormed out, saying: “You know you don’t care about that.”
Speaking to ESPN on Monday morning, he elaborated more on why he felt so frustrated at the constant speculation.
“When you have beat writers that come into practice and the games, you build relationships with these guys in person,” he explained.
“[I] Just wanted to let them know how I approach the game as a player, knowing that I have to talk to media.
“If I get the opportunity to talk to media, I want to give the fans my perspective about the game, not about business — stuff that I can’t control at this point.
“So I was just letting them know what I want to talk about when I come into practice or before shootaround or after a game.
“They’re around you every single day, and they see the pattern of who you are as a human and as a basketball player.”
Durant took a particular disliking to two stories written by The Athletic writer Ethan Strauss, in which it was alleged that Durant felt he became the best player in the world by beating LeBron James in the NBA Finals, and another which alleged that Durant had decided to join the Knicks next year.
“So I just want guys to be truthful, especially if they’re gonna walk up to me in the locker room after games and then go behind my back and write stuff like that,” he continued.
“At least come talk to me.
“But it was good to get that off my chest and let everybody know in the building – if you’re covering the team – what I’m about.
“And I think everybody understands and we’re moving forward from it.”
