Kevin Durant opens up about Russell Westbrook, criticism

Oklahoma City has started the season with three straight wins despite Kevin Durant's off-season departure. I love it. I go to work every day. He got married, I didn't. "We're not going to go through this in the media though". I used to get excited all the time because I played on so many teams. Once a beloved icon of the Sooner State, Durant in the eyes of many became a traitor. All that stuff that I'm taking shots at the Thunder or Russell, it's just there to try to separate us.

During KD's tenure in OKC, there were constant rumors that he and Westbrook may not have been getting along and the two had trouble sharing the spotlight. That mark would be 10 more than any other player over the past four years, and Westbrook could join Kemba Walker as the only player to average over 100 touches per game, which Walker did the 2013-14 season.

That hardly means Westbrook hates Durant, and it surely does not imply Durant detests Westbrook. We're boys. My interest went this way, his went that way. He hung with his wife. You know what I'm saying?

I don't care what nobody say.

Clinton: Donald Trump Is "Threatening Our Democracy"
OK?" OH remains too close to call. "By doing that, he is threatening our democracy", Clinton said at an election rally in Ohio. Here are some more of the candidates' best lines from the dinner, followed by both Mr Trump and Ms Clinton's speeches in full.

While many Thunder fans don't want to hear anything Durant has to say, at least he's giving a bit more insight than he did on July 4th when he chose to leave Oklahoma City.

"This is a tough time right now in our relationship", Durant said.

"Where me or Russ comes from (Seat Pleasant, Md. and Los Angeles, respectively), beef - you don't just throw that word around like that". I love his family. The days in which Oklahoma City is seen as one of the three or four true contenders in the Western Conference appear to be gone. Some fans burned Durant jerseys, while others vented on talk radio.

Durant's answers are about as honest and upfront as it gets.

Westbrook is the first player in National Basketball Association history to record 100 points, 30 rebounds and 30 assists in a club's first three games.

UNICEF says school attack a potential war crime
Russian Federation said earlier on Thursday that Moscow was not responsible for the attack in Idlib. UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake called the airstrikes an " outrage ".

While Westbrook's done his best "I don't care" routine, picking and choosing his spots to show he's angry, like a cat that can't stop tipping over your water glass onto the ground because you were gone all day, it seems like Durant can't help trying to fix things. Still, enjoy a good thing while you have it. "They're going to want to beat him really bad, he's going to want to beat them really bad", Green said. They want more suspense and excitement when they turn the TV on.

"It'll be a lot of emotions, but it'll be a fun game to play in". It was always over someone I was riding with, my teammates or my coach. Maybe he needs a few hours to absorb what's ahead.

This season it would be an understatement to say that they plan on coming back for the title. Just the impact he has on the game in so many different areas and just the pressure he puts on defenses just alone is insane. You see that they have guys that are very capable. He's going to come at us, I'm going to come at them. Adams, 23, is the ideal big man for Westbrook: a tough physical presence on the defensive end who sets good, hard screens and is a strong pick-and-roll man. ABOUT THE CLIPPERS (3-0): Los Angeles never looks far for points with the likes of Griffin, Chris Paul, Jamal Crawford and J.J. Redick around, but the team is most impressed with its defensive efforts of late.

He has moved on.
