Steve Kerr discredits Warriors 'sources' criticizing Thunder's Kevin Durant treatment

Triple-double jeopardy

Triple-double jeopardy

On Monday, Kevin Durant will return to Oklahoma City for the second time as a member of the Golden State Warriors.

Kevin Durant hasn't traveled with the Golden State Warriors since he suffered a sprained left MCL and tibial bone bruise February 28 against the Washington Wizards, but that's about to change.

Last month, Durant played his first game in Oklahoma City since leaving the Thunder for the Warriors last summer in free agency.

"When Kevin made the decision to leave and move on from Oklahoma and the Thunder, we responded in a manner that is consistent with how the Thunder tries to conduct itself, and I am incredibly proud of the people across our entire organization and the professionalism they have demonstrated". So I don't really pay any attention to a story like that unless there's an actual name that's put on.

The Warriors felt, according to sources, that for a player who meant so much to a city - a small-market city at that - a courtesy greeting was in order from top brass, who should have issued their fans a reminder and proper perspective on Durant's role in elevating the Thunder into a perennial championship-contending team. It's nobody with the Warriors.

Sam Presti's a friend of mine. So, we have great respect for the Thunder. "They're first-class, so I don't know where that comes from".

Stephen Curry also refuted the report by discussing it in broader terms.

After Durant went down against the Wizards, the Warriors' public relations department said he would be re-evaluated in four weeks. "Just what can be put on a spotlight during an 82-game year, and at the end of the day we're all just trying to win games and enjoy what we do for a living and that's it".
