This quote from Enes Kanter todat on the Jazz and Thunder is pretty jarring: http://t.co/Qw2Uix6Si9
One thing I took away listening to Kanter this morning: No doubt about it, he wants to re-sign with the Thunder this summer.
Enes Kanter on Thunder versus Jazz: "I think the difference is I like playing basketball there. I think that's the most important thing."
Key injuries in West: Rockets, Blazers, Clippers, Thunder & quite possibly Mavericks. That's a bummer.

Statement from Thunder of Kevin Durant's season ending surgery... http://t.co/5m6lesTdwW
Hard to believe for 3 consecutive seasons, injury to one of the Thunder's Big 3 will derail championship hopes (this yr it's KD & Ibaka).
I recall many wondering what in the world the Thunder were doing with Westbrook last season. Seems like that worked out to me.
Also: This decision was made in collaboration with three of the top foot/ankle specialists in the world. This wasn't just a Thunder thing.
Many are going to spin this however they want, but by going with the bone graft, the Thunder are taking a proactive long-term approach.
The Thunder's lost season isn't officially lost, but it's mostly missing and probably for good.
Thunder have now said both Westbrook and Durant had lower body injuries that were healing perfectly before they needed another surgery.
FYI: None of the 6 surgeries on Russell Westbrook's rt knee or Kevin Durant's rt foot will have been performed by the Thunder's medical team
Man. The Thunder are shutting Durant down for the season, and it sure feels like OKC's window is closing.
Thunder announce Kevin Durant to undergo bone graft surgery on right foot. Done for season; return to basketball activities in 4-6 months.
Kevin Durant will miss the rest of the season, the Thunder announce. Durant is expected to return to basketball activities in 4-6 months.
We're going to have a 30-for-30 one day on what could have been for the Thunder, and it's going to be sad.
