OKLAHOMA CITY – It seems Russell Westbrook is done talking about Kevin Durant.
In July, forward Kevin Durant announced that he would be leaving the Thunder to join the Golden State Warriors.
His departure sent shockwaves throughout the entire NBA community.
After switching sides and moving to the West Coast, Durant has been asked a lot about his new team.
Last week, the superstar was criticized by ESPN’s Steven A. Smith for comments he made about the difference between Golden State and the Oklahoma City Thunder.
“It’s not a knock on Oklahoma City. It’s not a knock on my past teammates or that organization… I mean, it’s different here. It’s fun here. It’s fun playing where I was before but that book is closed,” Durant said.
Now, it seems a different comment is fueling the fire.
“In terms of being a family, you can feel it when you walk through the door,” Durant said about the Warriors. “I feel really grateful to play for a team like that with a bunch of players who are selfless and enjoy the game in its purest form.”
On Thursday, Oklahoma City Thunder’s Russell Westbrook was asked about that quote.
“That’s cute, man. That’s cute,” he said. “But my job is to be able to worry about what’s going on here. We’re gonna worry about all the selfish guys we’ve got over here, apparently. We’re gonna figure that out.”
While Westbrook responded to that question, he says he is done talking about Kevin Durant.
