But regardless of his free-agency decision, Durant says he will “always be a part” of Washington. “That’s who made me who I am,” Durant said. “I walked those streets. I took that subway to the MCI Center, back when it was the MCI Center where the Washington Wizards played and the [WNBA’s] Mystics [played]. I’m always going to be a part of that community no matter what. That’s where I grew up. That’s where I honed my skills. That’s where I became a man.”

Washington Wizards guard John Wall said he wasn’t sure if he’d be able to play in Sunday’s All-Star Game after suffering a bruised right knee in Thursday’s 99-92 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. Wall said he suffered the injury in the first quarter when he collided with Bucks guard O.J. Mayo. He stayed in the game and received treatment on his knee at halftime and after the game, according to the Washington Post.
