Kevin Durant Embraces The Role Of The Villain And Roasts Former Teammate


Thursday night’s matchup between the Golden State Warriors and Oklahoma City Thunder was hyped up as a showdown between Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. However, only one of the two former teammates really wowed those watching.  Durant scored 39 points and tied his career high with seven 3-pointers.  Westbrook, on the other hand, scored just 20 points on 4-15 shooting.

Despite the media’s focus on the Westbrook vs Durant “feud”, the real verbal altercation came from elsewhere.  While lining up for a pair of free throws, Durant got into a back and forth with former teammate Enes Kanter who was sitting on the bench.  Watch what Durant had to say about the interaction  below:

It seems that Durant is embracing his role as the villain of the NBA.  Following a loss in their opening game, the warriors, and specifically Durant, have looked red hot.  There won’t be much of a rivalry between the Thunder and Warriors if the coming games end up as one sided as this one.
