Kevin Durant: Today was tough for me. While I support our team's decision 100 percent and look forward to the upcoming season and the future in OKC, Scotty was my coach and a friend for the past 7 seasons. We accomplished a lot together, and those times will never be taken away from us. I grew as both a man and a ball player under his guidance and for that I will forever be grateful. I wish nothing but the best for him and his family who have also been such a big part of this city and organization. I know he will be very successful in wherever his next steps in life are. http://instagram.com/p/1y1SyzTSuL/ Instagram

During home games, he was cooped up at the top of Section 106, constantly seen scrolling through his phone. During road games, he watched from his couch, listening to the broadcast and stewing over the knee-jerk reactions of the social media world. “I’m definitely pissed,” a surly Durant said at his exit interview on Thursday morning. “I've heard a lot of stuff over this time I've been injured from everybody, from different people. So I can't wait for the first game (of next season).” Oklahoman

He gets so worked up over what’s being said that those close to Durant often try to convince him that it’s best to ignore it all together. But he can’t. “I like reading that stuff because I get upset,” Durant said. “And I play well when I get really, really upset.” Oklahoman

“It’s kind of like a balance that I use,” Durant said. “I use it for fuel sometimes because I know most of it’s bull**** and I know most of the people don’t really know the game like I know it…(But) like I said, it’s a balance I have to have in between getting too mad and just letting that distract me and take that away from how I play and using that as fire as well. So I’ve heard it all. And I can’t wait to play again.” Oklahoman

When asked about the NBA’s tricky history of big men and foot injuries, Durant, clearly having read about these comparisons before, shot back: “Well, Bill Walton and Yao Ming had two totally different injuries than I had. And I can remember a lot of people telling me I was too small, too skinny and now all of a sudden I'm a big man?” "Hell no," he said when asked whether he'd watch the playoffs. Oklahoman

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
