In an interview with J.R. Moehringer of the Wall Street Journal Magazine, Durant talks about his decision to leave Oklahoma City in 2016, and his surprise at the reaction that followed. Speaking to the Wall Street Journal, Durant described his feelings for his former city.

Durant touches on a number of topics, most notably his sometimes hatred of the "circus" of the National Basketball Association, and his assertion that he'll never be attached to Oklahoma City again after their "toxic" behavior following his exit in 2016. He is expected to miss most - if not all - of next season after sustaining a torn Achilles tendon in the NBA Finals.

"People coming to my house and spray-painting on the for sale signs around my neighborhood", Durant said.

He hasn't forgotten fans burning his jerseys and calling him "all types of insane names" after his decision, or the way he was greeted upon his return with the Warriors. "And just the organization, the trainers and equipment managers, those dudes is pissed off at me?" Then the next two rounds we're going to have to mix in individual play.

"I'll never be attached to that city again because of that".

There were also on-court reasons for Durant's departure from Golden State, including the fact that he felt the team's offense was limited, especially in the latter rounds of the playoffs. "The organization, the GM, I ain't talked to none of those people, even had a nice exchange with those people, since I left". "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.

If you thought Kevin Durant would pull a LeBron James and go back to the team that drafted him after leaving once, you can now remove that thought out of your brain now.
