Oklahoma City Thunder Rumors
Marc Stein: Kevin Durant just announced that he’s a credentialed photographer at the Super Bowl with his work to be published via the @PlayersTribune
However, according to a person close to Griffin, there’s no guarantee he’d embrace returning home to play. The possibility hasn’t been discussed within Griffin’s camp, but as one prominent player operative noted, “Some guys don’t want to play at home. Too many distractions.”
The benefits of playing in a small market like Oklahoma City — less glitz and glamour, fewer media responsibilities, an organization that has proved to be protective of its stars — would be canceled out for Griffin. For him, Oklahoma City would be like New York on steroids. This factor must be considered, especially since Griffin has a player option for the 2017-18 season. “I’ve seen him there; it’s like Michael Jackson walking around,” the person close to Griffin said.
