KD's decision to pass the world championship is understandable and justifiable. Anyway, there are other players worthy of being included in Team USA for Spain.
Durant is on a mission. Not only for his team but to himself. It's been years now that the OKC is a strong contender for the NBA title but every time they fell short. The Thunder can not afford a Paul George injury.
It's not being selfish or unpatriotic but being logical.
