“Those people really mean a lot to me to this day,” Kevin Durant says. “No matter if they talk to me or they’re mad at me. Whether it’s Sam Presti or Troy Weaver or Russell Westbrook or Nick Collison. Whether it’s Wilson Taylor or Clay Bennett and his family, I love them from the bottom of my heart. We’re not talking, but eventually we will. “I didn’t have that perspective at first. I didn’t have it when I went back to OKC. I was like, ‘F–k all of them.’ I didn’t have it when they gave my number away. I was, ‘F–k all of them.’ My best friend works for the team, I told him, ‘F–k all y’all. That’s f–ked up.’ Then I had to get out of my head, tell myself, ‘It’s not that serious, it is what it is.’ I understand it’s not my number anymore, they can do whatever they want with it, but you hand that number to a two-way player, you’ve got to be, like, ‘Nah, we’ve got too many good memories with this number, man.’ But at some point, that thing’s going to be in the rafters anyway; it’s all good. I did something they didn’t like. They did something I didn’t like. S–t happens. If I was on my death bed, I guarantee you Sam Presti and Russell Westbrook would come check on me. So I’m going to look at it that way rather than the other way.”

Collison, 36, told The Oklahoman that his future is still up in the after this season, which will be his 15th in the NBA. “I don’t know for sure,” Collison said when asked if 2017-18 is his final season. “I know I’m a lot closer to the end than the beginning. It’s hard to ever close a door. You just never know for sure. “I’ll be 37 when the season starts. I don’t want to totally close the door, because you never know, but it very well could be. I’m just gonna try to be ready for it, enjoy it, and as the year goes on, make a decision at the end of the year, I guess.”
