So, before I even begin, let me make something clear: I honestly believe that Kevin Durant is the second best basketball player in the world. I mean, I still have LeBron James in the number-one spot, but keeping it a buck, Durant be giving James work, son. In any case, ever since Durant left the Oklahoma City Thunder, his views on the situation confuse me, man. All in all, OKC has every right to fucking hate him, fam.
Ok, for those who missed it, Durant gave an in-depth interview to The Wall Street Journal. Now, during the course of the conversation, he spoke about a lot of different topics. He spoke about shit like his rehab process, his issues with the Golden State Warriors‘ motion offense and the general nonsensicalness of the NBA. But, it’s his take on OKC that left me thoroughly perplexed, bruh.
Look, I’ve said it multiple times on this blog. Real talk, I don’t blame him for leaving the Thunder, son. Frankly, the dynamic between him and Russell Westbrook was doomed, man. Like, their respective games didn’t match each other and it impeded the team from winning, fam. Anyway, that still doesn’t excuse him from going to a conference rival, bruh.
Now, for those who don’t remember, the Thunder were one game away from the Finals in 2016. They had a 3-1 lead over the 73-9 Warriors and fucking blew it, son. Listen, people love to blame Westbrook for the lose, but Durant also played like hot dog shit, man. On top of that, it took a God-level performance from Klay Thompson in Game 6 to salvage that series for the Warriors. All I know is, that incarnation of the Thunder could’ve done some serious damage, fam.
Instead, Durant decided to skate out of town and join the very team that dashed his championship hopes. In addition, the Thunder haven’t won a playoff series since. The point is, WHY THE FUCK WOULD THEY TREAT HIM KINDLY?! For God’s sake, he ruined the franchise’s trajectory and he’s surprised that the fans don’t fuck with him? All I can say is, that’s the most delusional shit in the world, bruh. The fans have every right to be furious with him, son.
In the end, Durant just needs to learn to let this shit go, man. Ultimately, OKC will probably never fuck with him again. By and by, I can understand him having a beef with the actual Thunder organization. However, the fans were devastated by his departure and had every right to be. At the end of the day, Durant needs to get out of his feelings, stop arguing with people on Twitter and be satisfied with his accomplishments. That is all. LC out.
