The regular season has yet to begin, and already, Kevin Durant is sick and tired of answering questions about joining the Golden State Warriors.
KD is now offering a very simple reply to reporters who want to probe his psyche and decision-making process.
When asked about the Dubs’ team culture, Durant made sure to point out that things weren’t all that bad in OKC.

Per the Mercury News:
“I just did what I wanted to do,” Durant said. “It’s really that simple. No bells and whistles. No shows. I did what I wanted to do.”
But why? […] “I just wanted to play here,” he said. “Nothing more than that.”
A few questions before that, Durant was asked about the successful culture surrounding the Warriors. Instead of just straight praising it — like he’s done in the past, sprouting headlines — Durant was more measured, making sure to compliment the Thunder within his answer. […] “I’ve been part of a great culture before,” he said. “You’re dealing with different people, different personalities. But when you’ve been around good people, winning basketball already, it makes coming here less of a, I guess, shock value is not as high as if I was coming from a losing organization.”
