The Golden State Warrior's President of Operations was left in tears following star player Kevin Durant's Achilles injury during the fifth Game of NBA play-offs at press conference in Toronto on Monday.
Bob Myers emotionally described the circumstances of Durant's injury, which has consequences beyond the series.
«He is one of the most misunderstood people. He is a good teammate, he is a good... Еще person, it is not fair,» Myers said.
Durant's teammate, Steph Curry, said he «just feels so bad for him.»
«He gave us what he had and he went out there, sacrificed his body,» he said. «Nobody should have to go through something like that.»
Durant will undergo an MRI scan on Tuesday to determine the extent of the injury, however, it is likely he will be ruled out for the duration of the series.
The Warriors dug out a 106-105 win over the Raptors despite losing Durant to avoid elimination in Game 5 with two games remaining. The Raptors currently lead 3-2.
