There has been plenty of pregame trolling between Golden State and Oklahoma City heading into Kevin Durant‘s return to OKC Saturday night in the most watch game of the week. None of it from Durant or Westbrook, but there has been trolling.
Some of it was really funny, like the Warriors’ official Twitter putting Andre Roberson in the picture.
Then there was Kevin Durant having a little trouble booking a restaurant. And of course, there are great T-shirts all over Oklahoma City.
At shootaround, Steven Adams had a great response to if he talked to Kevin Durant.
Westbrook himself never goes there. He is the one who had the bond with Durant, who offered to change or do whatever it took to keep him, it is Westbrook who should be the most spurned, but he has taken it in stride and seems ready to move on. Will the two ever reconcile and be tight again?
It’s interesting because Durant doesn’t seem to see their relationship as damaged to the degree Westbrook does. Where does Westbrook see that relationship, is he hurt?
Some day the two will be honored together at events and past scars will be forgotten, or at least overlooked. For right now, Westbrook and Durant are just on different paths.
Durant’s path just leads him back to Oklahoma City tonight.
