Tomorrow, Oklahoma City visits Golden State in a match up that's going to be all about Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.
Durant stunned the sports world when jumped from OKC to the Warriors this offseason. His former running mate Westbrook seemed just as surprised as the rest of us by the move.
Durant spoke on his relationship with Westbrook in a new interview with The Mercury News.
"I love Russ. I don't care what nobody say. I don't care what he say or what the fans say. Like, this is a tough time right now in our relationship. But I love Russ. I love his family. They all know that. I never did anything morally wrong. I never back-stabbed him in real life, never did anything behind his back, never told anyone anything about his character. Never did any of that. I just left teams. I just switched teams. Everyone on the outside is looking at it as, 'Oh, you must not have liked him.' Hell no. C'mon man. Nobody understand that part. I'm trying to find out who I am. He knew who he was. He knew what he wanted to do. He got married young. He met his girlfriend in college. I didn't have none of that. I didn't have two parents in a home with me. I'm still trying to search and find out who I am. We end up going this way (splits arms again) as far as off-the-court personality wise. And that's not a bad thing."KD also pushed back on the notion that he and Westbrook have beef.
"It just shows the way of the world right now. Like, a beef? Bro, I don't beef with nobody. I've seen beefs go the wrong way. We've all seen it. The wrong way—real life wrong way, so you can't say beef around me. I'm not into no basketball beef.As for the game ...
Westbrook is averaging an amazing 38.7 points, 12.3 rebounds and 11.7 assists for OKC, who have jumped out to a 3-0 start.
Something tells us he's going to be extra motivated to try to top that on Thursday.
