Kevin Durant and the Brooklyn Nets have to be frustrated following an ugly 3-3 start to the season. The frustration seemed to boil over during Sunday night’s game against the hapless Detroit Pistons.

With Durant and his Nets well on their way to a fourth win early in the season, the two-time NBA Finals MVP was ejected from the game in Brooklyn after getting into it with Kelly Olynyk.

You be the judge whether Kevin Durant should have been tossed from the game. Objectively, we’re not seeing enough for him to have gotten run.

It simply looked like Durant was just trying to make his way through a screen. He did not throw a punch or anything of that ilk.

The star forward ended up finishing the game with 23 points on 10-of-13 shooting from the field. For their part, the Nets led by the score of 96-74 after three quarters.
