The KD-Russ story line never dies.
Former Thunder legend Kendrick Perkins was on TNT’s Area 21 as part of TNT’s Game 4 coverage of the Warriors and Jazz. they had a Boston Celtics reunion show. Tons of former Celtics were on the show.
Perkins caught everyone’s attention as the decided to talk about the relationship of Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant.
“I was trying to figure out a way to make them talk again. I felt like the outside world was putting a beef there that really wasn’t too serious, you know what I mean?”
Leave it to Perkins to being the mediator that he was always in Oklahoma City.
“I think the night that Russ actually broke the record, I had text KD the next day. He was talking about something, and he sent me a text and was like ‘Hey, man. Me and Russ had a nice conversation.’”
Perkins then went on a bit of a ledge and said this:
“I wouldn’t be surprised if KD went back to Oklahoma cause, in my opinion, Russ isn’t going nowhere.”
While many Thunder fans are really scorned by the loss of Durant, as were the Cavs fans when LeBron James left, they would equally welcome back Durant if he were to return in more humble terms. People grow and change.
However, Durant has stated that he’s probably never going through free agency again (even though he’s eligible to be a free agent this off-season). If our on court blow ups are any examples, I don’t know exactly how much Russ and Durant talk. Probably not much.
