NBA: Kevin Durant Says He & Westbrook Were ‘Work Friends’ & Explains Why He Chose Warriors


In case you haven’t noticed, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook have been battling in the media with each of them getting two covers of major magazines (Durant –Rolling Stone/SLAM & Westbrook – Sports Illustrated/GQ) to tell their side of the story.  Earlier today I posted the excerpts from Durant’s Rolling Stone article talking about why he left the Thunder.  In this excerpt, Durant talks about the moments he decided to rock with the Warriors.

I still remember July 4th when Kevin Durant posted the first-person article on The Player’s Tribune announcing that he was leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder for the Golden State Warriors.  I remember checking Russell Westbrook’s social media to see if the outspoken guard said anything about losing his partner in crime.   I also remember seeing the picture of the cupcakes he posted, thinking it was his way of showing he’s unbothered.  Well, it turns out I was wrong.

Since July 4, 2016, the day Kevin Durant declared his independence from the Oklahoma City Thunder, we’ve read and heard various reports about why he chose the Warriors, how Russell Westbrook factored into the decision, and even derogatory remarks about Durant’s personality.  Durant officially went from one of the nicest, most loved stars, to a villain in the league.  In a cover story for Rolling Stone, Durant delved into his childhood, his experiences and gave the most in depth look into a decision that changed the face of the NBA.

Draymond Green is tired of all the criticism Kevin Durant has received since becoming his teammate and fired back yesterday at those who have been talking too much. You already know how it goes. Everyone from sports media to barbershops to just your circle of friends has mentioned back in the day star players would never join forces like that, or people questioning KD’s competitive drive in general for joining a team that just beat him in the playoffs. Paul Pierce has been one of those people talking since the decision was announced and earlier this week he talked about it again during an appearance on SiriusXM NBA radio, where it was clear he must have forgotten he won his only title thanks to a superteam.

The NBA season is almost in full swing and one major topic you’ll hear about ad nauseam is a media created feud between Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.  Durant chose the Golden State Warriors in free agency, leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder and his “brother” Westbrook behind.  Since Durant announced his decision, the media continually asks both KD and Westbrook about each other. Warriors CEO Joe Lacob brought Durant and Andre Iguodala with him for an awards ceremony for the team, and during the presser, Durant talked about why he chose the Warriors.
