Kevin Durant on Oklahoma City: 'I Don't Trust Nobody There'

In a recent, wide-ranging interview with the Wall Street Journal, KD shed some light on the number change, revealing that he chose 7 because it stands for completion in the Bible.

Durant touches on a number of topics, most notably his sometimes hatred of the "circus" of the National Basketball Association, and his assertion that he'll never be attached to Oklahoma City again after their "toxic" behavior following his exit in 2016. Sometimes I don't like being around the executives and politics that come with it.

Kevin Durant has not been back to the Bay Area since June, when he left the Warriors and signed with the Nets on a four-year, $164 million max contract. "People making videos in front of my house and burning my jerseys and calling me all types of insane names", Durant cited as reasons for his disassociation with Oklahoma City, as well as how he felt he was treated in his return with the Warriors in February 2017.

Still, Ielpi sees the president as a get-things-done leader and hopes he can eventually work out a deal - if it's a stringent one.

"I'll never be attached to that city again because of that", Durant says.

The most newsworthy portion for Warriors fans, however, involves Steve Kerr's motion offense and Durant's belief that it's not a system without flaws. No NBA career is flawless from end to end, and Durant will have to take his the way it comes - now able to write another chapter with the Brooklyn Nets, once he has recovered from a devastating Achilles tear that ended his season during Game 5 of the NBA Finals. "And just the organization, the trainers and equipment managers, those dudes is pissed off at me?" I'm like, Yo, this is where we going with this? "I eventually wanted to come back to that city and be part of that community and organization, but I don't trust nobody there", he said. Ain't talking to me?

"As time went on, I started to realize I'm just different from the rest of the guys". That shit must have been fake, what they was doing.
