Many NBA players and coaches will tell you that Energy Solutions Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah, boasts some of the loudest crowd noise in all of sports, but not Kevin Durant. The Oklahoma City Thunder’s poster boy even went as far as to say that an empty Chesapeake Energy Arena (home of the OKC Thunder) was louder than the Jazz’s arena at full capacity. OUCH! This is per J.E. Skeets of the Basketball Jones: “Nah. It’s not even as loud as an empty OKC arena.” — Durant on if EnergySolutions Arena is one of league’s loudest arenas #KDIsNotNice — J.E. Skeets (@jeskeets) February 13, 2013 Perhaps Durant was a bit slighted towards Jazz’ fans after he claimed he and his teammates were poorly treated on the visitors bench during their 109-94 loss in Salt Lake City on Tuesday night. Durant seemed upset with what some of the fans behind OKC’s bench were doing and or saying to the Thunder during the game. I love playing in Utah, just upset at how the fans treated us behind our bench….we don’t deserve that..but I’m movin on — Kevin Durant (@KDTrey5) February 13, 2013 This could be the hangover from a tough loss to a western conference foe, or maybe Durant just had a bad experience with some rowdy fans. Either way, as an NBA Superstar, he’ll need to learn to shake this sort of thing off and focus on the next game. Fans can be brutal. Especially when you play for a juggernaut of a team. Expect opposing fans to give you a little extra smack talk in their own building. After comments like these from KD, don’t expect Jazz fans to get any nicer the next go-around.   The post Kevin Durant takes a jab at Utah Jazz infamous crowd noise appeared first on Pass The Pill.
