Kevin Durant on Russell Westbrook: ‘I Don’t Want Any Other Point Guard’

by September 26, 2011

Star teammates Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant have spent the summer answering questions about their relationship, and according to both guys, everything is just fine. KD says that Russ is his point guard of choice. Per Yahoo! Sports: “For all the talk about Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook not getting along, at times, during the playoffs last season, Durant denies there’s a rift between the Oklahoma City Thunder’s two stars. And he wants to make sure Westbrook stays in OKC. ‘We butt heads just like any other players because we are both competitive, we both want to go at it, we both have ideas,’ Durant said. ‘That’s going to happen. But I support him 100 percent. Of course, I hated when people were saying the stuff they were saying, and he hated it as well. I didn’t want it to get to his head. I hate when people try to creep into the group and try to break things up. I enjoy playing with Russell so much. I hope he understands that, and I’m sure he does. I’m looking forward to next season already. The last thing I’ve been worrying about is what people say about Russ, and I’m sure that’s the last thing he’s worrying about as well.’ … Durant said he is ‘confident’ that Westbrook will stay with the Thunder. ‘I don’t want any other point guard,’ Durant said. ‘He’s perfect for us, the type of guy he is, the type of player he is, the type of teammate he is. We’re all competitive, especially me and him. We get the best of each other in practice every day, and we want to go at each other and make each other better. We are going to have disagreements. That’s what all good players on good teams do.'”
