If you thought Kevin Durant would pull a LeBron James and go back to the team that drafted him after leaving once, you can now remove that thought out of your brain now.
Durant had a though of returning back to the franchise where made his name, but he recalled a video that his mom saw that made him change his mind completely.
“His mother recalls one particularly appalling piece of video: a Thunder fan firing bullets into a No. 35 jersey. Bullets-after she and Durant and half his extended family relocated to Oklahoma, after they embraced the community, after Durant gave a million dollars to tornado victims.
“I’ll never be attached to that city again because of that,” Durant says. “I eventually wanted to come back to that city and be part of that community and organization, but I don’t trust nobody there. That shit must have been fake, what they was doing. The organization, the GM, I ain’t talked to none of those people, even had a nice exchange with those people, since I left.”
That one fan may have single handily stopped something glorious from happening in the future, all because they let their emotions cloud their judgement.
As far as Durant’s career going forward, he has to sit out the 2019-2020 season as he recovers from the devastating injury he suffered in Game 5 of the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors.
