Kevin Durant has been able to avoid reporters for a few months now, which is why we haven’t heard from him about his plans as far as free agency goes in the summer of 2016. Earlier today all that changed as he had to sit down with reporters after his Team USA shoot around, and accordingly, he was bombarded with questions about free agency. His response was one no one seen coming. Instead of worrying about whether or not he’s staying or leaving he seems more worried about getting cursed out on court next season by teammate Russell Westbrook than where he will be playing in 2016.

We can kind of see why Durant is worried about getting cursed out by Westbrook. He’s a fierce and passionate player, and I don’t doubt him cursing KD out from time to time. October can’t come fast enough, we all miss basketball.
