The Morning Brew: Kevin Durant is still a little salty about OKC
Durant still talking okc
Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant has been gone from OKC for a year now, but he's still got the city he once called home on the brain.
In a new interview with Bleacher Report Durant dished on a variety of subjects, including Oklahoma City fans who he doesn't think are appreciative of his contributions to the city's image.
...because just a couple months before, I was the greatest thing since sliced bread because I was playing for your team. Your team is on TV every day, playing late into the playoffs and you get to brag about how good your city is to some other people around the country. It was all good when I was doing something for you. It was all good when I was representing you.
While Durant doesn't seem to care much what OKC fans think of him, he does hope to mend fences with those he played with in OKC.
"Those people really mean a lot to me to this day. No matter if they talk to me or they're mad at me. Whether it's Sam Presti or Troy Weaver or Russell Westbrook or Nick Collison. Whether it's Wilson Taylor or Clay Bennett and his family, I love them from the bottom of my heart. We're not talking, but eventually we will.
The Warriors and Thunder meet in OKC next week.
