KD on his $10-million paycut: it's my money. It's my decision. I can do what the hell I want with it

Kevin Durant on the critics about his paycut

Kevin Durant was criticized last summer when he left the Thunder during the free agency to join the Warriors.
In his first season with Golden State KD won his first NBA title and was the Finals MVP.
This summer he has been criticized again because he accepted a paycut to allow Warriors to re-sign Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston.

Per The Athletic, Q: Let's shift to free agency a few weeks later. Everyone knows what you did, taking that nearly $10-million paycut. Was it an ‘Oh, if Andre (Iguodala) needs this much, I'll take this much' kind of situation? How did that decision come together?
DURANT: Well, I'm a smart guy and I want to keep this thing going and looking at Andre and Shaun (Livingston) and Steph (Curry) — they all should make the most money that they can make and get what they deserve. Because they were all underpaid and I knew at some point they'd want to get what they deserve. So I just took a step back and let the chips fall where they may. Then I took it in my hands. I wanted to keep the team together and I thought it was going to help the ownership bring all the guys back. And on top of that, it's my money. It's my decision. I can do what the hell I want with it.
