2019 NBA Finals Afetr successful surgery, Durant faces long road to recovery




OAKLAND — As rumors swirled on the extent of the lower leg injury he sustained in the second quarter of Game 5 last Tuesday, Kevin Durant turned to Instagram to set the record straight.

\”I did rupture my Achilles. Surgery was today and it was a success,\” the Golden State Warriors superstar announced and posted a photo of himself at a hospital bed in the Hoag Orthopedic Institute in New York where he is presently recuperating.

There is no definite timetable for the return of the two-time NBA champion and two-time NBA Finals MVP, but Dr. Alan Beyer, an orthopedic surgeon, told reporters that the entire process could take between eight to 12 months.

\”My road to recovery starts now! I got my family and loved ones by my side and we truly appreciate all the messages and support people have sent our way. Like I said Monday, I\’m hurting deeply but I\’m OK. Basketball is my biggest love and I wanted to out there that night because that\’s what I do. I wanted to help my teammates on our quest for a three-peat,\” Durant added.

Tyson Fury's Dad sets constraints on the AJ-Fury rematch

The “Gypsy King” Tyson Fury (33-0-1) is set to rematch with two-time former unified world heavyweight champ Anthony Joshua (26-3-0) next year but Fury’s dad pushes Joshua vs Wilder first.

Deontay Wilder, “The Bronze Bomber” (43-2-1), former WBC heavyweight champ, is the first American world heavyweight champ since 2007. He defended his title for 10 times.

But, Wilder lost to Fury twice after their trilogy last October 9, 2021 in an eleventh round KO.

John Fury blurted to The Daily Mail that many boxers are ducking Wilder because they are afraid of him. He added that only his son defeated Wilder twice yet he praised the latter’s power.

As of this writing, the said rematch is still unclear however, DAZN reported last September 23, 2023 that promoter Eddie Hearns got an venue offer to stage the fight next year.

“I know how great he is,” James said in the press conference last May 2023 about Jokic.

Jokic won MVP of the Western Conference Finals after he exploded with 27.8 points, 14.5 rebounds and 11.8 assists.

On the other hand, Lebron James felt humiliated with a sweep loss though it is not his first time to be swept. James got swept also last 2018, when his Cavaliers clashed with the Golden State Warriors.

Meanwhile, Lebron is expected to erupt vs the Nuggets.
