Appearing on the “Jim Rome Show” on CBS Sports Radio, Bryant said that he is happy for Durant and that it is the type of offseason move that would bring out his competitive edge.
“I was happy for him. This is something that he wants to do man, he’s happy with his decision,” Bryant told Rome about Durant. “So as a competitor you have to look at that and say ok, how can I figure out, I have to figure out to take apart that team, and so now the challenge becomes how to find cracks within their system within their personnel, how can I take them down.”
