I expected this back and forth between KD and Westbrook and it as cute as the simple comment the Thunder’s Guard had for Durant’s recent Warriors evaluation.
Kevin Durant recently made a comment about the Golden State Warriors, praising them for their “selfless” environment.
“That’s cute,” Westbrook said. “Cute.”
Durant was asked earlier this week why he chose the Warriors during free agency.
“I feel really grateful to play for a team like that and play with a bunch of players who are selfless and enjoy the game in its purest form,” Durant said. “They make it about the players, they make it about the environment, so it was really an easy choice.”
Westbrook, after being read Durant’s answer verbatim at shootaround on Thursday, was asked whether he felt like it was a shot at him or the Thunder franchise.
“But my job is to worry about what’s going on here,” Westbrook said. “We’re going to worry about all the selfish guys we have over here apparently. So we’re going to figure that out.”
And when asked Thursday whether it’s difficult not to take every comment Durant says as a jab at the Thunder.
“I don’t care,” Westbrook said. “To me, it doesn’t matter. My job is to worry about here. Honestly, I’m really tired of talking about it. So, anytime anyone asks me another question, I’m just not going to answer.”
The Thunder and Warriors play Nov. 3.
