Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, Golden State Warriors, Oklahoma City Thunder, nba, atbnews
Durant was again asked about Westbrook’s decision to renegotiate a three-year contract worth $85 million that will keep his former running mate with the Thunder for at least one more year beyond next season. “I’m happy to see any player in this league do whatever they want to do,” Durant said. “As long as he wasn’t pressured to do anything and felt like he did everything he wanted to do. And that’s how I feel about every player in this league. It’s good for him, man. It’s good for his family. It’s good for the people in Oklahoma City that love to watch him play and love to have him on their team. “I got nothing but positive energy and vibes for everybody. I don’t have no beef with anybody or wish no ill will on anybody. So if he did what he wanted to do, that’s better. That’s great for him.”

Aside from a text message to inform him of his decision, Durant hasn’t had a chance to actually sit down with Westbrook to discuss the situation. He’s not certain when, or if, that day will eventually come. “That’s a touchy deal. I don’t know,” Durant said. “It’s easy for someone else to tell me what I should do, but you guys don’t know how that whole thing [went down]. I don’t know, man. I’ll see after this is over and once everything dies down. Like I said before, at some point we’ll sit down and talk. But I don’t know when.”

While he respects Westbrook for staying, Durant has no regrets about joining the Warriors. “I felt good when I made the decision. It’s just the outside noise that I just kept hearing, kept getting louder and louder. It was hard to ignore it. And it’s hard to shut it off,” Durant said. “But as time goes on, things get better. It’s still a little different to me. … I haven’t settled down in the Bay yet. I haven’t been around my teammates yet. So all that stuff, I’m still trying to figure out how to make it work and how new it’s going to be. It’s basketball at the end of the day. I can mesh with anybody. And I can play any game. And I can fit into any system. So it’s just a matter of me going out there and getting used to it.”
