Chicken-Fried News: Loyal Durant

Can you imagine Kevin Durant in a Washington Wizards jersey?

Having recently suffered yet another physical setback and undergoing a minor procedure on his right foot, the normally reserved Thunder star expressed his displeasure at an even deeper setback in an interview with GQ Magazine: the front office’s team management.

Durant stated that he has had to endure a drop in supporting team talent the past few years during his quest for an NBA championship. He also said that he was done saying the “right things” to conceal his frustration about it.

Whoa now, non-PC KD. What are you suggesting?

You see, a few questions pop up when it comes to free agency, like ‘If a player might leave, what could make them stay or where they might go?’ Also, Durant’s own free agency might come soon in the face of consecutive disappointing season finishes.

There is speculation that his hometown team, D.C.’s Washington Wizards, might be the next natural pick for Durant if he isn’t kept happy with the Thunder.

The past few seasons have been rough for the Thunder, but hardly mediocre. Though plagued by injuries to Serge Ibaka, Russell Westbrook and Durant, the team has made consistent runs at division titles.

Despite a terrible start to this season, OKC seems once again bound for the playoffs, but with a championship drought dragging on, it’s possible that only a ring will tell if OKC will get another chance with Durant at the helm.
