Kevin Durant dumped Oklahoma City this summer to join the Golden State Warriors. So why does he still talk about it?
Like an ex who just wont get over it, the former Oklahoma City Thunder basketball star couldnt help but talk smack to Rolling Stone in the magazines Oct. 19 cover story.
It felt like that whole thing was set up for me to leave, especially after they blew a lead in the finals, because I damn sure wasnt going there if theyd won, he told the magazine. But after Game Seven, I called up my agent and said, Damn, dude, Golden State what if?
This summer, his mother Wanda Durant said Durant simply couldnt go on being the beloved star of Oklahoma Citys professional franchise.
She said her son told her, Mama, I cant do it anymore. Theyre not in this thing with me, were not together like we were I feel like I need something different, the magazine reported.
And he got it. He signed a two-year, $54.3 million deal with the Oakland, California-based Warriors.
Its early, but Durants Oct. 25 Warriors debut didnt go so well. Though he scored 27 points, the team fell 129-100 to the San Antonio Spurs.
But we wont gloat. After all, Oklahoma City is totally over KD.
