Kevin Durant takes court amid boos from Thunder fans

By Vincent Frank

As expected, Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant did not find a positive reception when he took to the court in Oklahoma City on Saturday night.

Durant was met with widespread boos from Thunder fans at Chesapeake Energy Arena, a place he called home for eight seasons before signing with the conference-rival Warriors this past summer.

In no way should this be considered a surprise. Durant wasn’t expecting a warm welcome from his former fans. This is all in the midst of Durant and former teammate Russell Westbrook continuing to have a falling out. Heck, this one Thunder player openly indicated prior to the game that he’s not on speaking terms with Durant (more on that here).

Fans in OKC are also trolling Durant at an epic level.

It should definitely be a fun one between Oklahoma City and Golden State Saturday night.
