Yesterday, there was a report that Russell Westbrook was angry at Kevin Durant for not giving him warning that he was going to bolt Oklahoma City for Golden State, and that the two haven't spoken since.
Royce Young, the ESPN writer who broke the story, expanded upon the rift in a recent podcast, explaining that Westbrook had every reason to think KD was staying.
"Three weeks ago, Kevin Durant's sitting there at dinner, telling him "Hey, I'm coming back, man. Don't worry about it," Young explained. "And now, Russell Westbrook has been kind of thrown into this in having to decide his future a summer earlier than expected. Kevin Durant, more so than even that, was telling people, "Hey, yeah, I mean I'm coming back." Like I said in there, a week before Kevin Durant sat down in the Hamptons, he was in Oklahoma City ready to make an offer on a multi-million-dollar house. So, the guy was pretty serious about coming back, and then things turned rather quickly for him to leave. And there's no doubt that the organization felt a little bit burned by this."This could get interesting on the court.
