Here’s another backstory. When Durant first announced his departure, Westbrook was mum about it the day that it happened. But now it has been reported that he did throw a subtle shot at him. In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Westbrook said that their former teammate Kendrick Perkins used to call players “cupcake” in the locker room if they were acting soft.
On the day that Durant made his announcement, July 4, Westbrook happened to post this picture as well.
Westbrook started his 2016-17 NBA season with a victory over the Philadelphia 76ers last night. Oh, and he got flipped off for it.
