The Brooklyn Nets won at the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday in a homecoming of sorts for Kevin Durant and James Harden. Both players started their careers with the Thunder, with Harden being traded to the Houston Rockets in 2012. Durant later left Oklahoma City for the Golden State Warriors as a free agent in 2016.
Following the Nets victory, Durant said he didn't think the Thunder would trade Harden. He also said he never thought the two would team up again.
Durant has had a contentious relationship with Oklahoma City and their fans since leaving. That didn't keep the Nets star from admitting the Thunder "set the foundation for where I am today".
Harden was asked if he's surprised the OKC fans still booed him. Harden said "It wasn't my fault" that he was traded. Harden said it didn't cross his mind that this was the first game he and Durant had played together in Oklahoma City.
