This may sound like a joke but some residents of the state of Oklahoma are not ready to let go of the hurt and betrayal they feel Kevin Durant is responsible for. There is town in Oklahoma named “Durant” and apparently the constant reminder is too painful to bear for them. An online petition has been started to change the name of the town from “Durant” to “Westbrook” in honor of the hero they feel is loyal.


Oklahoma’s Ryan Nazari created a Change.org petition asking the city of Durant be renamed the city of Westbrook. Here is part of the petition:

“Ladies and gentlemen, the great state of Oklahoma has been betrayed. As many of you know, Kevin Durant has left our state, torn out our hearts, and left our beloved Oklahoma City Thunder in depleted shape. All of this after even being offered a cabinet position for the State of Oklahoma. It is because of this heinous action that I believe the State of Oklahoma has a responsibility to change the name of the City of Durant to Westbrook, the man who is loyal, whom we believe in, and who will lead our team to glory. Yes, it is understood that the city Durant was not named after the evil Kevin Durant, but it is just another hideous reminder of what happened to our community.”

Durant, Oklahoma, is a city of just more than 15,000 people in the southern part of the state. It is the capital of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, and it was named after its Choctaw founder, Dixon Durant.

More than 1,000 people have signed the petition so far but at the end of the day the name will never change. Just another example of the bad blood KD left behind when he moved to the Bay area.
