In an interview on ESPN's Mike & Mike Show, Kevin Durant was asked whether watching the impact of LeBron James returning to his home area of Cleveland could influence his decision on possibly signing with the Washington Wizards.
Durant will become a free agent in 2016 and there has been speculation that he might leave the Thunder for the Wizards.
"I really haven't thought about that, to be honest," said Durant. "I hear it a lot. But I think I can make an impact on the community I grew up from anywhere. So I think I'm doing a good job of that in Oklahoma. My friends, my family, the kids in my neighborhood are seeing that. I'm inspiring them from Oklahoma City. I really haven't thought about it. I love where I am. I know that sounds cliche and the answer everybody gives, but that's really true from my side of it. I'm sure everybody's watching from afar."
