There’s been a lot of talk of Kevin Durant leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder when he becomes a free agent in 2016 and going to the Washington Wizards since he grew up in the area.  Durant has mostly deflected questions about his future but during an interview with Revolt TV, he gave the strongest answer that inferred he would remain with the Thunder.

“I love it here, man. I love my teammates, I love the city, I don’t really think about anywhere else,” Durant told Revolt TV in a recent interview. “I hear it all the time, don’t get me wrong, and once you hear it you’re kind of like [looks up, thinking]. But for me, I love staying in the moment, and I’m one of those guys that would love to stick it out with one team my whole career.

“Kobe [Bryant], Tim Duncan, Dirk Nowitzki type. That’s awesome,” he said. “But you never know what the future holds sometimes and how teams may feel about you after a while, but I love it here and I would love to get my jersey retired here.”

Durant is recovering after going through bone graft surgery and will return to basketball activities in four to six months.
