Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports
According to ESPN, NBA MVP Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder has withdrawn on Thursday from Team USA before the FIBA World Cup, citing "physical and mental fatigue."
quote:

Team USA managing director Jerry Colangelo said Durant reached out to him and coach Mike Krzyzewski on Thursday afternoon and "expressed that he is just physically and mentally drained from the NBA season and his attention to his many responsibilities."

Durant had participated in the Americans' training camp in Las Vegas last week.

"This was an extremely difficult decision as I take great pride in representing our country," Durant said in a statement. "I know that I owe it to my USA Basketball teammates to be totally invested in the experience. After going through training camp with USAB, I realized I could not fulfill my responsibilities to the team from both a time and energy standpoint.
His withdrawal comes less than a week after Paul George's gruesome injury.

Do you think Durant's withdrawal is a result of what happened to George?
