KD’s Future In OKC

Kevin Durant made his strongest statements to date regarding whether or not he’ll stay in OKC once his contract is up next year. He told Revolt TV: “I love it here, man. I love my teammates. I love the city. I don’t really think about anywhere else….I love staying in the moment and I’m one of those guys that would love to stick it out with one team my whole career. Kobe, Tim Duncan, Dirk Nowitzki type. That’s awesome.”

He didn’t just deflect the question the way he normally does; that was pretty definitive, so that’s positive for OKC. But I wouldn’t get too comfortable if I were OKC. That comment guarantees nothing. And if they come up short again next season, I’m guessing he’ll be singing a different tune.

As much as he wants to stay in OKC, he also wants to win a title and if he thinks it can’t happen there, I doubt he’ll stay just for the sake of staying. Remember, he’s the guy who said he’s sick of being second and that he’s been second his entire life. Strong statement to be sure, but if they come off the rails next year, it says here, he’s going to take a good hard look around the league. A good hard look around the league. And if 27-year old KD sees a better shot at a ring, hate to say it – but it’s O…K…C-ya.
