Kevin Durant not 'moved' by pursuit of being basketball's GOAT While the quest to be the best ever is a mantra that rings true with athletes across the sports world, Kevin Durant claims to not be one of those athletes. Is that because he knows he’s already too far behind to catch up to the likes of LeBron James or Michael Jordan? Or because he knows it’s an argument you can never win? Either way, at least KD is using social media in a much more positive way now.

As Kevin Durant walked by, a female Oklahoma City Thunder fan unrolled toilet paper close enough for Durant to see his face on each square. Thunder fans should never stop booing any star from another team scoring at will against their own beloved squad.

It wasn’t just the fans. Durant says the Thunder have also acted “fake” to him, and he has not maintained a positive relationship with anyone in the team’s front office since his departure.

“I’ll never be attached to that city again because of that,” Durant said. “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 s— 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.”

Enes Kanter Believes Kevin Durant Will Be Big Brother Kyrie Irving ‘Needs’ Enes Kanter has been a busy man since joining the Boston Celtics. Aside from being excited to watch his teammates participate on the U.S. men's national basketball team in the FIBA World Cup and appearing on WWE , the center is giving his opinions on Bleacher Report's "The Full 48" show. Kanter already won Celtics' fans over when he took a jab at former Celtic Kyrie Irving by saying "I want to be the reason no one else will wear it," when asked why he chose to wear No. 11 at his introductory press conference.

Fans reacted similarly when LeBron James left Cleveland the first time, but he still chose to return to the Cavaliers and deliver on his promise of bringing the franchise its first NBA title. Durant has no interest in doing the same in OKC.

In addition to the vandalism and jersey burning, Durant’s mother Wanda has also spoken about the nasty treatment she has dealt with from Thunder fans. KD is extremely close with his mom, so that is likely a factor as well.

Durant has a tendency to hold grudges and can be very thin-skinned, so it’s no surprise he wants nothing to do with Oklahoma City. Fans can be irrational, but Durant isn’t the type of guy to overlook being disrespected.
