During a visit to Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic, John Wall was asked if he was going to try to persuade a certain Washington Redskins fan to leave Oklahoma and return home after the upcoming season.
“There’s gonna be an opportunity to throw a pitch at him to try to get him to come back home,” said Wall about Kevin Durant. “But I know one thing of just knowing him he’s going to be very focused on taking care of Oklahoma City this season, and I’m going to be focused on taking care of the Washington Wizards,” Wall said. “But when the time is right and he can get away from all that, yeah, we’ll probably have some conversation and throw a pitch.”
That news should get supporters of the “KD2DC” movement excited but these statements by KD to Revolt TV might be a bit of a bubble buster.
“I love it here, man. I love my teammates, I love the city, I don’t really think about anywhere else,” said Durant. “I hear it all the time, don’t get me wrong, and once you hear it you’re kind of like [looks up, thinking]. But for me, I love staying in the moment, and I’m one of those guys that would love to stick it out with one team my whole career.”
“Kobe, Tim Duncan, Dirk Nowitzki type. That’s awesome,” he said. “But you never know what the future holds sometimes and how teams may feel about you after a while, but I love it here and I would love to get my jersey retired here.”
Regardless of where Durant ends up after this season, all supporters of KDnOKC should be excited at the fact that KD is back and will show why he was the 2014 MVP.
