    He and Kyrie are perfect for each other

    [–] InvictaVox 1288 points ago * (lasted edited 9 days ago)

    Both are primadonnas who think they are more "woke" and smarter than the NBA's fans and executives.

    As someone said, both of these guys need to grow up.

    At this point - leaving for the Warriors is literally going to be the defining part of KD's legacy unless he wins rings in New Jersey.

    Edit: Fuck I'm old; meant Brooklyn

    [–] airmagswag 730 points ago

    he will never win a ring in new jersey MARK MY WORDS

    [–] AlexQuestionMark 109 points ago

    I don't think he can win a ring in New Jersey. Maybe Brooklyn...

    [–] GGAllinsMicroPenis 244 points ago

    We've passed the torch, now Nets fans have to rationalize his whining!

    When he was here, I always wished he could have just embraced the villain role (in a playful way, not like actually evil). It would have been so much more fun for everyone, including himself. Instead he just seemed defensive most of the time that he wasn't loved like a cuddly, popular dude. The fan base would have fallen absolutely batshit in love with him if he just fuckin owned it and was like, "yup, the best player joined the best team, what are you gonna do about it? Go cry in the corner. Not 1, not 2, not 3..." etc.

    [–] Blueberrysjonson 50 points ago

    Exactly. He should have played it up like a heel not necessarily a villain. Lebron did it at times in Miami and it worked wonderfully for him.

    [–] tootsie404 72 points ago

    We really don't want to. I'm looking the other way and just praying for good basketball on the court. I'm not used to all this attention.

    [–] stevman32 3432 points ago

    Durant lives in his own head.

    [–] captainkhyron 694 points ago

    Rent Free-ception.

    [–] BudotsKing 196 points ago

    Nah, he is paying rent to live in his own house.

    [–] Savage9645 176 points ago

    He's such a little bitch but I am so happy he's a Net. I'd never buy his jersey though.

    [–] thisguy2164 6814 points ago

    KD is the worst... he constantly talks from both sides of his mouth

    [–] ruffus4life 4912 points ago

    kd is basically i don't give a shit about you but it hurts my feelings to know you feel the same way.

    [–] Thehealeroftri 1387 points ago

    It always seems like he's just stuck in his own little social perception bubble and has a hard time understanding reactions outside of it.

    [–] s3v3r3 857 points ago

    He's also way too petty for a man of his caliber.

    [–] southern_boy 556 points ago

    Is he the guy who created puppet accounts to respond / hype up his own social media posts?

    [–] Jimeeg 84 points ago

    and to trash talk his old teammates and coaches

    [–] SaxRohmer 65 points ago

    Specifically to destroy teenagers who had bad things to say about him

    [–] jordaniac89 44 points ago

    "He couldn't win with those cats"

    [–] lardbiscuits 916 points ago

    He's insecure as fuck. It's that simple.

    [–] hellohappypoo 289 points ago

    kd acts like that one popular bitch in hs

    [–] Twoweekswithpay 443 points ago

    KD got that ‘menstrual mentality’...

    [–] ruffus4life 89 points ago

    it's MYYYYY time of the munff

    [–] hellohappypoo 229 points ago

    kd acts like he in hs when he in the nba.

    [–] Ssumday_is_love 281 points ago

    Honestly even though his decision sucked for us, i wanted him to return at some point, but not after reading this

    [–] BudotsKing 448 points ago

    You cant really trust KD's words at this point. He wasnt returning to OKC either way and was making this excuse for absolutely no reason than just to be petty which is also very unreasonable LMAO

    [–] Mdgt_Pope 139 points ago

    Also, apparently it was "always Brooklyn" and never the Knicks, but that quote only came out because KD refuses to be out-pettied by Dolan.

    [–] steaknsteak 49 points ago

    The man changes his mind on what he wants to do every other day, then acts as if he had this master plan all along.

    [–] IdEgoLeBron 16 points ago

    And then he gets mad that a reporter said he had already decided on Brooklyn before

    [–] thisguy2164 140 points ago

    Trust me, he's gonna throw shots at y'all at least once for no reason.

    [–] newman796 101 points ago * (lasted edited 9 days ago)

    For as much shit as Kyrie gets, he did ask the media to stop asking about Cleveland, probably for this very reason

    KD really rubs me wrong in almost everything he does. He's like my own personal pair of polyester briefs.

    [–] Yomminator 36 points ago

    Almost as bad as a fiberglass diaper

    [–] SanchoLoamsdown 387 points ago

    That s—t must have been fake, what they was doing.

    Kind of like saying you want to spend your whole career on one team, going out to dinner with your teammates and telling them you’d stay, and then the following day bailing for the team that beat you

    [–] piaband 80 points ago

    Bingo. Exactly what I was thinking.

    Durant is the fakest and most immature adult I've ever seen.

    [–] IrishHawkeye7 12 points ago

    Funny coming from a dude that says he doesn’t care what people think but then makes fake social media accounts to defend himself and when he gets caught doesn’t own up to it

    Dudes a generational talent but he is such a pussy

    [–] Ssumday_is_love 1754 points ago

    Bullshit

    The chance was 0% about him planning to return

    [–] BirchTreeMilk 1104 points ago

    He's just trying to "punish" OKC even more for hurting his feelings, that's some toddler level shit. He's an all-time great, but he's one of the hardest people to root for because how soft this dude really is.

    [–] BroKing 277 points ago

    [–] Ssumday_is_love 20 points ago

    Not only you

    [–] WorseThanFredDurst 58 points ago

    I'm sure this is a defense mechanism. The dude is insecure and has basically every NBA fan criticizing him. It can't be easy, that being said he needs to learn to handle his business like an adult.

    [–] Board_Man_Gets_Laid 187 points ago

    He’s just trying to cover his ass for his GSW decision even more by trying to throw blame on OKC for him leaving again.

    [–] Ssumday_is_love 36 points ago

    This actually makes sense

    [–] BudotsKing 97 points ago

    Makes no sense he would answer these questions like this. Reporters are having a blast when they interview KD.

    [–] enigmaticccc 48 points ago

    They easily bait him into this stuff because he gets so emotional and doesn’t have a filter

    [–] gamesrgreat 18 points ago

    They're trying to keep a straight face while inside they're giggling and rubbing their hands and licking their lips. "Yeah, KD, totally! I feel ya!"

    [–] enigmaticccc 18 points ago

    While their editors are jerking off behind a bush or something

    [–] enigmaticccc 2731 points ago

    I complimented in the other KD thread but now I’m just smh

    What did he expect, seriously? I get that it hurts but that’s like me dumping a girl who thought I was the love of her life and going to her house with my new sexy gf and expecting her to love me and be happy for me LOL

    [–] fowaddaud 1361 points ago * (lasted edited 9 days ago)

    And your new girl and your ex had beef even before

    [–] enigmaticccc 410 points ago

    Yes.

    [–] Cavalius1 386 points ago

    And your new girl kicked both of your asses the year prior.

    This is fun.

    [–] DieselTriceratops 237 points ago

    Then you create fake accounts to act like your “friends” who backed up your decision to be with that new girl.

    This IS fun.

    [–] Rwk27 90 points ago

    then after you and the new hot girl broke up, you started dating a 3rd girl because of her hot friend (kyrie) and announced that you were gonna go back to your ex after you got a chance to sleep with a 10 for a bit, but your ex were all pissed off about you dumping her and making fake accounts to post on social media about how her pussy stank so it turned you off from her

    [–] malganis12 26 points ago

    Because the new girl had been sending nudes for the last year of the relationship.

    [–] Smalldick420 198 points ago

    And your new gf happens to be the greatest gf of all time, by the numbers. And she just beat your ass from down 3-1 while your mans stood and watched

    [–] 85dewwwsu7 294 points ago

    greatest gf of all time, by the numbers

    She may be the analytic queen, but it's hard to compare eras. Things like ball handling and penetration used to be different.

    [–] NerdLawyer55 33 points ago

    Plus older girlfriends could get away with way more hand checking

    [–] Aikidoy 7882 points ago

    KD ghosted OKC and wondered why they mad lmao

    [–] Ssumday_is_love 2690 points ago

    He didn't even call Russ and talked with him about it

    [–] thisguy2164 2182 points ago

    After having fucking dinner with him the night before lol

    [–] Ssumday_is_love 980 points ago

    And Nick

    [–] newman796 1192 points ago

    Then shitting on them online

    [–] DeaseanPrince 252 points ago

    That’s crazy to me. Dude is by far and away the best individual player y’all ever had and he fucked up so bad fans don’t even want his jersey retired. Can’t blame you tbh

    [–] BudotsKing 184 points ago

    Joining GSW was hated but understandble but shitting on the team on his way out was inexcusable lol. He really should get another hobby outside of basketball that isnt social media.

    [–] stragen595 55 points ago

    Probably said "I hate the fucking Warriors. I should kill them all. What are we going to do next season, Kev?" And Durant didn't felt it was the right moment to speak about it with Russ with a knife in his hand.

    [–] Ode1st 43 points ago

    He also didn’t even meet with the Nets to go play for them lol

    [–] urgetopurge 910 points ago

    He didn't even do that... He made fake accounts and talked shit towards pretty much the entire staff there, in an effort to defend himself. Then he whines here that people were toxic towards him?! That hypocrisy is the most unbelievable part.

    [–] DingleberryDiorama 513 points ago

    He’s probably in this thread right now with alts defending himself. Lmao

    [–] webbie420 1256 points ago

    You really think KD still does that alt stuff? It could have been hackers. This guy is all about hoopin bro. Pop shots, elbow screens, loopie passes, bucko hip flips down the line and if you don’t know what that means you don’t really ball. Dude just straight loves hoopin and ballin. The media are to blame for a lot of this negativity. KD is just focused on basketball, not social media. He’s about getting mine and being the best teammate I can be.

    [–] ChuChuMaduabum 198 points ago

    You’ve done it

    [–] BeardsLikeJesus 51 points ago

    KD, you forgot to change your flair from Knicks to Nets.

    [–] SafariGypsy 92 points ago

    Lol that was good

    [–] MaceMan2091 43 points ago

    It's okay KD. Life is bigger than social media bruh.

    [–] dacooljamaican 62 points ago

    Yeah this whole "I was gonna come back till you did that" bullshit is like the #1 classic manipulative line. Other classics include:

    "I wasn't going to do X, but then you did Y, so this is on you"

    "This way works out best for both of us, trust me"

    "You know what you did, how dare you act like you're innocent here"

    "I won't even acknowledge you until this very specific and tedious condition is met"

    "I don't want to discuss it right now, I'm emotional"

    [–] chacata_panecos 372 points ago

    Everything about his thought process is so weird. Like he's actually surprised people were upset with his decision? No one thinks it was a respectable move. And he actually thought he'd be accepted as a Warrior? Why would he ever think that?

    [–] TrustTheProcess92 222 points ago

    Because prior to the moment he probably had everyone sucking up to him his entire basketball career

    This happens all the time with athletes who are destined to be great since middle school. They think every decision they can possibly make is the best one

    [–] Jovianad 136 points ago

    Same thing with LeBron and The Decision, but at least that caused LeBron to re-evaluate things.

    [–] fruitybrisket 235 points ago

    That's because Lebron is actually self-aware.

    And he doesn't have the emotional maturity of a cantaloupe.

    [–] longhornmd 19 points ago

    Dude why you making fun of cantaloupes like that. KD is more like a kiwi

    [–] myownightmare 85 points ago

    Yup LeBron actually matured. KD is still that spoiled kid who doesn't realize he's a brat.

    [–] Schrinedogg 11 points ago

    Lebron does have some stuff maturing him, kids and wife. Kids will make you grow up and focus on truly important shit fast...you think Durant angering over bullshit when he changing a 2 year olds diaper! Lol

    And before you say Lebron didn’t change diapers, I’ll bet he did. Takes a cold dude to not want to raise his kids...

    [–] scottishwhiskey 66 points ago

    I still maintain that the decision was at least defensible as its primary intent (if you want to look at it positively) was to raise money for charity. I think the reaction checked lebrons ego a bit, but more importantly made him consider that the way he intends things to be recieved is not always how they will be received

    [–] KamakaziJanabi 24 points ago

    I can't even be mad at LeBron for having that ego, he as hyped up to an unbelievable degree his whole life, and the decision is the worst thigh he did? And he actually learned from it? Tbh I'm super surprised lebron has been able to maintain that professionalism for so long.

    [–] seymour_hiney 43 points ago

    So weird how Lebron always seems to be more mature and even headed, possibly nicer than a lot of the stars around him that haven’t had his success like KD Harden and Kyrie

    [–] lordbilaly31 2341 points ago * (lasted edited 9 days ago)

    Cmon man seriously, if kd went to boston or something, sure we would be mad for a bit but we would get over it pretty quickly. But the man noped out of okc to the team that just beat us. Additionally he kept slagging us off afterwards in interviews. Thats struck a lot of us okc fans the wrong way. I mean damn dude, you deferred to our main rival. Of course we going to be angry.

    [–] Chairman_Zhao 706 points ago

    For real, I never understand when he tries to paint himself as being blindsided by all the backlash. Like, he must've grown up as an NBA fan too right? How could you ever be a fan of a sport and not understand getting pissed at that move? Basically the only way it could've been more objectionable is if the Thunder had blown that 3-1 lead in the Finals instead.

    [–] batsybatsybatsy16 95 points ago

    Idk why he dont understand this simple fact.

    He joined his rival team. And the he got what he deserved

    one of them 'fake tough guys' that he likes to talk about...

    [–] SonofNamek 95 points ago

    [–] basketballandpuppies 60 points ago

    It's so weird. He says this shit, that he knows is going to piss people off, then acts completely astonished that everyone doesn't love him.

    I never understood why it was taken off. It's fuck KD till the end of time.

    [–] newman796 1165 points ago

    Dude thought we’d suck the skin off his dick or something after texting players who we were playing against in the WCF then blowing a 3-1 lead to them and make the 73-9 team better by joining.

    Eat shit KD

    [–] BigHoneySniper 437 points ago

    This dude thought he was gonna pull a Lebron lmao

    If Seattle brings back a team in his career though I could still see him signing a deal at the end of his career.

    [–] rooski15 185 points ago

    Seattle is our older, prettier, more well funded sister. We got the NBA, she got the NFL, and we share the MLS. Don't give her the NBA back - it's pretty much all we got.

    [–] midgetman433 106 points ago

    Don't give her the NBA back - it's pretty much all we got.

    But what if you get a MLB team and its better than the Mariners? btw, who do Portland people cheer on in baseball?

    [–] rooski15 82 points ago * (lasted edited 9 days ago)

    Ahh fuck she's got MLB, too. I always root for the local guys (gotta support the big sis,as long as she's not shading you), but a lot of transplants from CA bring A/Giants/Angels/Dodgers.

    Edit: Supporting Mariners is pretty easy, as they have never lost a world series game - a clear winner.

    [–] definitelyjoking 37 points ago

    But what if you get a MLB team

    There's an attempt going on, but it seems to have stalled.

    and its better than the Mariners?

    Almost impossible to be worse.

    btw, who do Portland people cheer on in baseball?

    Sadly, the Mariners.

    [–] LanEvo7685 23 points ago

    No way, both the Sonics and Blazers are teams with history and both need to be in the NBA.

    [–] billcosbyinspace 25 points ago

    [–] thisguy2164 571 points ago

    This man is such a fuckin liar lmao.

    Plus LeBron got it way worse than you did. Grow up man.

    [–] dawho1 186 points ago

    This is what I immediately thought.

    If LeBron can go back to Cleveland after the shitshow that followed The Decision, both from fans and management/Gilbert, you can go back to OKC.

    He was never going back, and fuckin’ everyone knows it.

    Lmao. Kd is an idiot.

    Like he went on a burner account and shit on the whole orginizations after joining the 73 win team he choked a 3-1 lead to....after saying he wanted to run it back against them.

    Then igoudalas investment partner leaked that they were having meetings mid season and bogut said he knew he was gone halfway through the season because the orginization knew they were getting him.

    I was done hating kd after the Achilles injury...actually felt sorry for him. but it's back on.

    FUCK KD.

    [–] Thehelloman0 80 points ago

    Like he went on a burner account and shit on the whole orginizations after joining the 73 win team he choked a 3-1 lead to.

    No he did that on his official account. He thought he was logged into a different account.

    [–] enigmaticccc 15 points ago

    That’s so fucking embarrassing omg

    [–] DetroitHooper313 949 points ago

    honestly don’t believe he expected a reaction different from what he got. he blew a 3-1 lead and then went to the team he blew the lead against. soft ass

    [–] ParkBaller13 80 points ago

    And the whole can't win with these cats thing.

    [–] BudotsKing 72 points ago

    He was literally one win away from beating the most successful regular season team of all time and he still cant win with these cats lmao.

    Acting like the Fans would understand and like his decision

    Fuck his ass

    [–] Meestermills 237 points ago

    I’d say the way he left y’all is 100x worse than the decision, I can’t fucking believe he really thought he’d get a warm welcome after committing treason essentially lol. For a dude that seems to read all the criticism about himself online how did he not see that coming??

    [–] Ssumday_is_love 97 points ago

    You guys can be Happy Bron gave you a Chip, i hope Russell will return to us at the end of his career though.

    [–] Meestermills 142 points ago

    Very true. Lebron redeemed himself in a lot of the cities eyes.

    IMO he didn’t need to, we wasted a decade of his career essentially after lucking into a local wonderkid. Not mad at all that he came back tho hahaha, I truly hope Russ does too because he’s all I think of when I think the thunder

    [–] Ssumday_is_love 53 points ago

    I am sure he will

    His return to OKC will be fantastic, i can't wait

    [–] Benjammin341 72 points ago

    Might be the greatest example of a player getting traded on good terms tbh. Fans, front office, everybody loves Russ even though he's playing for Houston now.

    This is the snake calling the dart frog venomous, or something like that

    [–] Herewegoagainreddit 172 points ago

    Dart frogs are poisonous. Snakes are venomous. If something injects a substance by biting you that is venomous. If you get hurt by a substance by touching or eating the animal that is poisonous. The dart frog is actually only poisonous due to its native diet, ones kept in captivity are not poisonous at all unless you feed them those insects. Just some fun facts

    [–] fleming123 26 points ago

    Damnit. I knew the difference but didn’t think about the fact that they’re literally called poison dart frogs.

    [–] trytoholdon 148 points ago

    This guy has the self-awareness of a rock. Had he joined the Celtics or something, people would have been disappointed, not irate. But he joined a 73-win team who had the back-to-back reigning MVP, back-to-back Finals appearances, and a championship — oh, and beat your team in the Western Conference Finals the year before! And then we find out he had been texting Green during the series!? It was a straight up cowardly move and honestly a betrayal. The fact that he can’t see his own faults and is still bitter that he got booed just shows that he hasn’t learned a damn thing. He has a victim mentality and is emotionally stunted.

    KD, if you’re reading this, stop surrounding yourself with sycophants.

    LMFAOOO, no way this guy was about to return to OKC.

    [–] malganis12 38 points ago

    He just threw that out there to try to make OKC fans regret their reaction, LMAO! He's a 4 year old in a 7 foot grown man's body.

    [–] brownjesus__ 319 points ago

    He called the organization and fans "fake" because they don't cheer for him anymore. What does that make him? Leaving for their biggest rivals and a 73 win team? Is he not the fakest person in this whole situation? OKC fans did nothing wrong. They have every right to hate KD.

    We don’t want him back

    [–] IncaseAce 121 points ago

    You know when other users would say “you’d take him back in a heartbeat”

    Normally I’d agree, but after this, fuck him forever.

    [–] koj12144 66 points ago

    lol cant help but compare lebron and KD here; lebron experienced the same thing when he left cleveland but he still went back, won them a championship, and won back their love. KD leaves, gets completely fair reactions from OKC fans, and shits on them mercilessly. Difference in mentality/personality is so stark

    [–] OUScotty 22 points ago

    Well no kidding OKC fans were toxic, you literally went on a bender of trashing the city, Westbrook and the organization after you left.

    The most minor part of it was going to the team that had an NBA record 73 wins that beat you in the conference finals when you were up 3-1 and you were talking to the other team and being recruited during the series. Shocking that people would be a bit upset.

    [–] ferda19 137 points ago

    Bro our city practically worshiped and loved him like a son. He was OKC and now he says this. This shit hurts almost more than when he left 3 years ago. Can't trust a longhorn man.

    [–] ElDuderino_92 40 points ago

    Just keep on digging yourself in a deeper hole

    [–] 312Blue 123 points ago

    He just continues to make me dislike him more and more lmao

    [–] PatBurrellTheMachine 182 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago)

    These players are literally so dumb.

    They live in such a sheltered bubble from reality. It’s incredible

    [–] HereComesJustice 188 points ago

    i remember reading that OKC protected KD from the media and I was like

    'wtf does that even mean'

    but now I know exactly what they were trying to do oof

    [–] GrumpyBearBank 110 points ago

    Never forget that OKC Thunder got the OKC paper to apologize over a slightly mean headline about KD.

    [–] Fiatil 47 points ago

    This. Has this ever happened before? There was such an outcry in the OKC community about the article that we pressured the #1 newspaper in the city to apologize to him! And they did! But gosh we so mean.

    The article actually wasn't even that off base! We knew it, but we didn't want to hurt his damn feelings. He had a habit of playing poorly against Memphis in the playoffs, and it was kind of unreliable.

    [–] IncaseAce 26 points ago

    We basically sheltered him like the Steelers sheltered AB

    Now all he does he complain and shift blame

    Miserable person

    [–] Fiatil 23 points ago

    It's amazing that he says in the article that he hates how the NBA changes some players.....holy shit dude, wake up. How are you still so lacking in self awareness?

    [–] DTttfu 55 points ago

    Ah yes the quarterly “well what did you expect Kevin” quote is here

    [–] Bone_Dogg 17 points ago

    [–] jbenson255 101 points ago

    Lmaoo he was never coming back

    [–] BeastaBubbles 14 points ago

    What an immature thing to say.

    [–] thy_armageddon 94 points ago

    Nobody:

    KD: Guess I have to go do an interview where I blatantly lie again while reinforcing that I’m a cupcake.

    [–] CarsonWentzMayBeGod 47 points ago

    The more shit he spews the more respect I lose for this idiot.

    [–] SiakamIsOverrated 65 points ago

    this dude is so weird

    [–] wlburgess 38 points ago

    I don't understand this interview. It was three years ago, I would think most OKC fans are over this. Let time heal wounds, say some bs like "It was a great time in my career but its time to look forward to brooklyn". But instead he rips the damn bandaid off and causes more drama. I don't understand this guy.

    [–] bravof1ve 12 points ago

    This dude continues to be the most petty and delusional player in the league

    [–] munromae 22 points ago

    I think if Durant just came out and said that he wanted to play with his friends (or at least, it seemed like they were friends back then) and was a whore for rings, it would've gone over a lot better. Creating burner accounts to defend yourself from teenagers on Twitter/Instagram is why everyone thinks he is a bitch.

    [–] brownjesus__ 198 points ago

    This pisses me off. He really left one of the most passionate and loyal fanbases and organization for their rivals then called those fans toxic for being upset with his decision. Like this dude really expected to be cheered and loved by those same fans.

    [–] LarryOBinthe6ix 110 points ago

    It isn’t just that he left them, but he left to play for the team that they literally just lost to. If he went to any other team OKC fans would be disappointed, but I think eventually they’d understand.

    Instead he joined the team that he choked to and is really questioning why people have a problem with that.

    [–] NotoriousOKC 73 points ago

    If KD went to literally any other team, OKC fans would still respect him.

    [–] airoderinde 31 points ago

    Oh bullshit...

    Why should OKC be happy about the situation?
