During the introductory press conference of Kevin Durant with the Golden State Warriors, he was asked about whether he feels guilty about his decision to leave the Oklahoma City Thunder.
“Nah. We live in this super hero, comic book world where either you’re a villain or a superhero if you end up in this position, and I know that," said Durant, who will turn 28 in September.
"But I know I haven’t changed as a person. I don’t treat people any differently because I made a decision to play basketball in another city. I understand the fans in Oklahoma City and basketball fans around the world are I guess upset. But like I said, I made a decision based on what I wanted to do and how I felt, and that’s the best decision for me so I can’t really control how you. I’m sorry you feel that way but I’m gonna continue to live my life. My life goes on, and I’ve got a short amount of time left to play basketball. I just want to enjoy every single day of it.”
Durant underwent three surgeries on his foot during the 14-15 season in which his entire career was in jeopardy.
Durant and the Warriors will enter the 16-17 season as favorites to win the title.
