In a shocking twist, Kevin Durant helped pitch the positives of his former team the Oklahoma City Thunder when talking to Paul George. The comments of George today about joining the Thunder saw him claim he will look to remain in Oklahoma City if they have a great season.
One of the reasons George is excited about joining the Thunder is the praise Durant gave the organization in conversations during the trade talks.
“KD was like, ‘That place will blow you away. He told me, ‘They can offer what other teams can’t in terms of the people and the preparation and the facility, down to the chefs and the meals.’ He was pretty high on them. He thought it was a first-class organization in every way.”
Despite the bad blood, Durant still has a lot of love for Oklahoma City. We may be witnessing another LeBron/Cleveland situation with an eventual reunion.
