Thunder’s Durant: ‘I Love Playing Here’
It didn’t take long for Kevin Durant to catch wind of the comments made by former NBA player and current ESPN analyst Jalen Rose. Speaking with Bill Simmons for the website Grantland.com, Rose predicted that Durant will leave Oklahoma City to play for the Houston Rockets at the end of his current contract.
Q: Did you hear what Jalen Rose said about the Houston thing?
Q: Do you have any thoughts on that?
A: Nah, I’m here for the Thunder (laughs). I mean, that’s all I can say. I’m not thinking far down the line at all. It’s about today. Today we got better against the Chicago Bulls. I can’t tell the future. I can’t speak on that. That’s his opinion. I’m just going to keep playing for the Thunder. I love playing here.
