Kevin Durant: “Who Cares About Detroit”
The Oklahoma City Thunder have not taken their loss to the Detroit Pistons on Tuesday night very kindly. First, Russell Westbrook had some words for Reggie Jackson, and now Kevin Durant had some choice words for Jackson and the Pistons.
In these quotes from Erik Horne of the Oklahoman Durant says, “It’s Detroit. You know, who cares about Detroit.”
Durant says this after the Thunder lead by MVP candidate Russell Westbrook were not able to beat the Pistons.
Then, Durant on Reggie Jackson’s end of game celebration:
“It was bush league in my opinion. Jumping up and down, running around… I understand you helped them win the game, but our whole team didn’t play.”
He then said, “We’d have beat the hell out of them if we did(Himself and Serge Ibaka play), you know?”
Durant finished, “They won the game. Congrats.”
The Pistons have gotten into the Thunder’s heads, but the Thunder have many more problems to deal with other than the Detroit Pistons. They still haven’t figured out how to compete with the Golden State Warriors or the San Antonio Spurs.
It will be interesting to see how the Pistons respond to this, but Detroit may have found their Western Conference rival.
