NBA: Kevin Durant Fires Back At Reports That He Promised Westbrook He Was Staying In OKC

IFWT_KD

There were reports earlier this week by ESPN reporter Royce Young, where he insinuated that Kevin Durant had promised Russell Westbrook that he was definitely coming back to the Thunder in a meeting prior to free agency beginning. On the surface it sounded like a pretty foul move on the part of KD to promise his running mate of the past eight years that he would be back, only to ditch him for the Warriors. Durant decided to speak on it during team USA practice in Chicago yesterday, where he denied ever doing that. The same reporter has also since clarified his own statement.

We have yet another report about the Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook relationship.  The first report said Westbrook was “ticked off” that Durant left and he is ready to lead the Oklahoma City Thunder by himself.  In the second report, Durant himself said he and Westbrook did not talk about Russell’s future prior to his departure, that he hasn’t really spoken to Westbrook since he left and that their relationship will probably never be the same.  The third report said Westbrook was angry that Durant left and he was hurt because KD didn’t tell him personally that he was leaving.  This latest report now says Durant told Westbrook he was coming back to continue playing with OKC.

Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder had a messy breakup as he left for the Golden State Warriors in free agency.  Durant wasn’t just the star player of the team, he was a big part of the community including his philanthropic acts and his ‘southern cuisine’ restaurant called “KD’s”, located in the heart of Bricktown — right in the middle of the Oklahoma City metropolis.  Now that Durant is gone, the restaurant is to, but not completely.


NBA Report: Russell Westbrook is ‘Angry & Hurt’ Kevin Durant Left & Didn’t Tell Him Personally

Kevin Durant’s decision to leave the Oklahoma City Thunder essentially moved Russell Westbrook’s free agency up a year.  Westbrook officially becomes a free agent next summer but with Durant gone, the Thunder are trying to lock Westbrook in now rather than letting him walk for nothing like KD  With Dion Waiters signing a $2.9 million deal with the Miami Heat, the Thunder now have enough room to sign Westbrook to a max extension.  Should he refuse, he could see trade talks begin.  While everyone else has been talking, Westbrook has remained silent.  A recent report said Westbrook was “ticked off” that Durant left and a new report says he’s angry not only because Durant left but also because he didn’t tell Westbrook personally.

The 2015-16 season ended with an epic seven game NBA Finals series that saw Lebron make maybe the most famous block in playoff history, which was then followed up by a dagger three pointer from Kyrie Irving to win it all. Those were only two great plays from this past season but there were many more. Today, the NBA released the top 100 plays of the season, a 26 minute video that you won’t want to stop watching. Lebron’s block as you might expect landed at the top of the list but the other plays from guys such as Kyrie, Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and many more will have you wishing it was next season already.

Last night was Team USA’s first exhibition game leading up to the Olympics and they made easy work of Argentina, defeating them 111-74 without much effort. Last night was also the first time Kevin Durant got to play a real game with some of his new teammates from the Warriors in Klay Thompson and Draymond Green. It’s still scary to think just how good they will be together next season with Steph Curry but at least for last night, the new mates didn’t think much of it.

Some people in Oklahoma are not in the mood to put any type of RESPECK on Kevin Durant’s name, or jersey for that matter. KD left Oklahoma City behind for the Bay Area but stores still have plenty of Thunder merchandise with Durant’s name on it that they need to get rid of. One store is taking extreme measures to do so by selling a normally $69.99 jersey with a heavy discount of 99% off, making them .48 cents!
