To me this is pretty cut and dry.
If the Thunder make it to the Finals and KD can get some assurances that Russell Westbrook won’t leave he will stay.
If they flame out in playoffs and Russell can’t give him those assurances he is likely to go somewhere else.
He didn’t sugarcoat that he likes feeling wanted in his comments to Yahoo Sports.
“I will tell you one thing, it’s great to feel wanted,” Durant said. “… I’ve heard so many rumors or whatever. It’s good for people to say this team wants me or that team wants me. That’s what you want as a player is for everybody to respect you and really admire how you play basketball.
KD says for now the majority of his focus is on the Thunder, but that will change when the offseason hits.
