Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook have admitted to being more brothers than friends.

Recently, Durant shut down rumors and called everyone who assumes that he and Westbrook are feuding, “disrespectful.”


Durant and Westbrook have been known as an intense dynamic duo in the NBA for at least three years. They have shown their closeness and strength as friends, supporting each other through each’s own injuries, both on and off of the court.

Durant was particularly offended by comments made that suggested the two were feuding or not as close as portrayed.

He went on a small rant during an interview with The Oklahoman saying that he takes offense when people think he or Westbrook is jealous of the other.

“How can you tell? That’s my whole question. What are you basing that off of? Because he shoots more than I do one game? That don’t make no sense. We don’t like each other because he shot more? That don’t make no sense.

And it’s really disrespectful to me or to us because you think I’m that selfish of a person. I don’t like this guy because he shoots more than me? That’s disrespectful to me. Because if I’m a friend, I’m genuine. I’m there, no matter what. Good days, bad days, more shots. I’m a real friend.”

Durant is usually a pretty low-key guy when it comes to drama and bad press, but clearly he was feeling some type of way of the rumors between him and Westbrook.

Durant is set for free-agency after this season with the Oklahoma Thunder and questions of what his next move will be are starting to circulate.
