"I will miss Oklahoma City, and the role I have had in building this remarkable team. I will forever cherish the relationships within the organization — the friends and teammates that I went to war with on the court for nine years, and all the fans and people of the community. They have always had my back unconditionally, and I cannot be more grateful for what they have meant to my family and to me." -Kevin Durant

Fans weren't the only ones disappointed. Stephen A. Smith executed the best Stephen A. Smith temper tantrum to date.
Don't give a damn what anyone says: weak move by KD. You go to GSW, the team who beat you, when you're already on a title contender? Please! — Stephen A Smith (@stephenasmith) July 4, 2016

I heard my friend @stephenasmith call it the weakest move ever by a superstar. FWIW, I never disrespected SA when he left Philly Inquirer. — Mike Wise (@MikeWiseguy) July 4, 2016
This means the Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant love story is over.
