I never like to see grown men crying on camera after a loss because it makes them look mentally weak. Nothing with crying once you are alone and in private but not on TV for the world to see. As a star player after a loss in the Finals, he is supposed to show ANGER not Sadness because it would show how mentally strong he is and how he wants to get back to the Finals next year. And what's up with hugging his mom after a loss anyway? He has done that the last two games and I;m sorry but I lost a little respect for him after that because you only cry after a WIN.

I never ever seen Magic, Bird, or Isiah cry after a loss in the Finals. Very disappointed in Durant after seeing that last night.

You're reaching with this comment. he's only 22 years old, he could only legally buy a beer last year. Let that dude grow and mature.

If anything, to me it showed just how bad he wants it, and how disappointed he might be in himself. Either way, Durant is probably the most humble player in the NBA.

Oh, so you're the one who wrote this bulls**t on insidehoops.com last night. Don't be ridiculous; it's clear you've never played an organized sport in your life. I hope this thread gets locked, for eff sakes.

I thought he was 23? For years I was under the assumption that men only cry when they win the title like Jordan. I was surprised Lebron didn't cry last night

You talk as if every single superstar cried after they loss in the Finals which is not the case which is why the stars below is my favorite players of all time.

Magic
Drexeler
Isiah
Bird
Barkley.


And yes I played organized sports and lost but held my emotions in until I was alone not around other people

I don't give a rat's azz about which superstars have and haven't cried; everyone handles things in their own way. But it hasn't a damn thing to do with mental weakness. Toss this in the bin with the rest of your moronic statements.

Well I guess we will just have to both agree that some superstars are stronger than others and handles things a lot differently after a loss.

It's easy to criticize someone else's experience that you yourself have never been through. And who are you to tell someone how he should or should not respond to a situation? Durant doesn't know who the f*** you are and doesn't care.

Unless Mommy and Daddy beat that into your head. When I read such "tough love" statements like the OP, my parents came to mind.

Crying isn't a sign of weakness though, maybe in your little world. Thanks for wasting space on the forum with this garbage.

Well maybe we come from different parts of the country but where I come from if you are a grown man and your mom is standing there emotional after you lose a game you have to be strong for her and not break down. But like I said maybe that's not the case where you are from but I know being from Philly it's a completely thing.
