Charles Barkley on whether he’ll ever join Twitter: "Probably not. I saw Kevin Durant arguing with people not too long ago. Kevin Durant is a great, great player and great guy. So some kid he played against in high school made a thing that he kicked all of these NBA guys’s butts in high school and he put KD in there. Meanwhile, this guy is like a plumber. So Kevin Durant and this guy are arguing with each other and I am reading this in a newspaper thinking, 'Dude, you are Kevin Durant. Why are you arguing with a plumber? (There’s nothing wrong with being a plumber, I might add) but you are Kevin Durant!' Same thing with RGIII and Colin Kaepernick. I’m like, 'Dudes, why are you arguing with someone on the Internet?' I always use this analogy when it comes to sports fans: Just because you watch Grey’s Anatomy doesn’t mean you can perform an operation." Sports Illustrated

Kevin Durant made some of his strongest comments yet about his future free agency, going as far to say he wants to have his jersey retired in Oklahoma City. "I love it here, man. I love my teammates, I love the city, I don't really think about anywhere else," Durant told Revolt TV in a recent interview. "I hear it all the time, don't get me wrong, and once you hear it you're kind of like [looks up, thinking]. But for me, I love staying in the moment, and I'm one of those guys that would love to stick it out with one team my whole career. ESPN.com

Several teams — including the Los Angeles Lakers, Washington Wizards, New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets — have already set up their salary structure to make a run at Durant next summer, when the league will be overwhelmed by significant increase in the cap. And Durant has been constantly pestered by fans, reporters and even associates about his future plans. “I hear it all the time, don’t get me wrong, and once you hear it you’re kind of like,” Durant said, looking up and thinking. “But for me, I love staying in the moment, and I’m one of those guys that would love to stick it out with one team my whole career.” Washington Post

“We give these people hope here, because when you think of Oklahoma City before us, it was the Oklahoma City bombing, natural disaster,” Durant said. “If we ever win a championship, I feel we’ll be heroes. I feel like we’d resurrected a city that was down and that felt like nobody cared about them. It’s beautiful because they don’t take us for granted… I got confidence because our fans are going to back us and I’m never going to take that for granted.” Washington Post
