It’s the only answer he could have given. He could have said he hated Boston, but no free agent in their right minds is going to eliminate one of the biggest potential players before reaching the open market. And, besides, the Celtics might actually catch Durant’s attention.

What’s really tiring is the questions themselves. Beat reporters at Durant’s every stop have to ask them. It’s their job. Even if they know they’re going to get stymied, someone for some outlet has to ask.

My proposal? They get a little more inventive in asking obvious questions that invite obvious answers:
