Draymond Green Compares OKC Fans To an Ex-Girlfriend For Treatment of Kevin Durant
KD’s Mom Upset OKC Fans Called Son a P*ssy, Coward, B*tch, Sellout, Snake & Cupcake
Last night at Chesapeake Energy Arena, OKC Thunder fans threw every type of insult at Kevin Durant as he made his return to the city for the first time since he bolted in free agency and joined the Golden State Warriors.
Kevin Durant may have been able to play through it, but his mom, Wanda, was not feeling all the hate in the stands as she cheered on her son from the stands.
“The most vicious things you could say, they said about my son tonight. It’s hurtful,” Wanda told ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne following the Golden State Warriors’ 130-114 victory over the Thunder at Chesapeake Energy Arena.
“We poured our heart into this place. Not just him. Our family. This is basketball. This is not whether or not you’re going to make it into heaven.”
Wanda was seated behind the Warriors bench and many times throughout the night, she stated OKC fans felt the need to approach her and insult her son in front of her face.
“They called him a snake, a sellout, a b—-h,” she said. “It’s just a sad day. I understand that they loved him. I do understand it. But the name calling. The people with the cupcakes on their backs … It didn’t have to be like this.”
Wanda said that after the game was over, she went and hugged her son with tears in her eyes.
“This is not the first time I’ve been back since Kevin left,” Wanda said. “This is maybe my fourth or fifth time. Every time that I’ve been back, people seem like they are afraid to say something nice to me. People will whisper, ‘There’s his mom. Ooooooh!’
“There are people who tell me they still love him. But then you have the people who shot his jersey up. My son poured his heart and soul into this place for eight years and for them to treat him like this because he decided to go someplace else to play is really tough.”
