Kevin Durant gave a candid interview to the Wall Street Journal where the new Brooklyn Nets superstar opened up about his time in OKC and Golden State and his eventual departure from both franchises. While Golden State fans may not be as salty over him leaving The Bay, considering they won a championship without him, the same can't be said for the OKC Thunder fan base. Durant expressed his displeasure in how he's been received in Oklahoma City since leaving and Thunder fans went at him on Twitter over his comments. While most star players would ignore the vitriol, KD embraced it as he engaged with Twitter users over his remarks.
Durant told the Wall Street Journal, "I eventually wanted to come back to that city [Oklahoma City] and be part of that community and organization, but I don’t trust nobody there," adding, "That sh** must have been fake, what they was doing. The organization, the GM, I ain’t talked to none of those people, even had a nice exchange with those people, since I left."
That comment set off a series of tweets directed at KD asking why does he continue to talk about Oklahoma City despite having moved on. One user analogized Durant's feelings about OKC to a person that broke up with their partner and began dating their best friend yet still wants the ex to love them the same as before. Another user tried explaining why OKC fans feel the way they do, which prompted KD to respond, "I can feel how I want about it too. it’s not harming u, you’ll be aight tomorrow."
