Two-time NBA champion forward Kevin Durant, who signed to a four-year, $164 million max contract with the Brooklyn Nets this offseason, talked on his return to Oklahoma City as a Warrior in 2017:
Per Wall Street Journal: “Such a venomous toxic feeling when I walked into that arena. And just the organization, the trainers and equipment managers, those dudes is pissed off at me? Ain’t talking to me? I’m like, Yo, this is where we going with this? Because I left a team and went to play with another team?”
“I eventually wanted to come back to that city and be part of that community and organization, but I don’t trust nobody there. That shit 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.”
This past season, the 30-year-old averaged 26.0 points, 6.4 rebounds, 5.9 assists and 1.1 blocks per game.
