Kevin Durant was asked about the city of Boston ahead of Wednesday's game against the Celtics.
The Celtics will have maximum cap space available to sign Durant but they're considered a longshot.
“I like the city a lot,” said Durant. “It’s cold, but they love sports here. It’s a family atmosphere I feel when I walk around the city, so yeah, I like it a lot.”
Durant hasn't played a game in Boston since Nov. 23, 2012 due to various injuries over the past few seasons.
“It’s been a while, right?” he said. “Before this game, I was hoping everything goes well our last game so I can finally play here.
“It’s been three years since I played here, so I’m really looking forward to it. Some of the best fans in the world, and they definitely support their team, so I’m looking forward to it.”
