Right now, one thing is clear:
Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook are not on the best of terms.
But according to Kendrick Perkins, the two superstars will fix things eventually.
"I don’t think it’s a real beef there," Perkins told The Oklahoman. "I think it’s just more so maybe feathers being ruffled, just feelings being hurt. I don’t think either one of them got hard feelings. I done been around them for going on four, five years – numerous group messages to dinners to card games to whatever – and I know both of them really care about each other."
Things got heated last Saturday night during Durant's return to Oklahoma City.
During a timeout, Durant and Westbrook exchanged words as they went towards their respective benches.
"I think more so it’s the outside world that kind of blow it up and keep adding fuel to the fire," Perkins added. "If you look back on it, either one of them never commented and said nothing negative about either one of them.
"I think in due time, they’ll mend. I was just talking to Russ, and Russ don’t have any hard feelings toward KD, and KD feel the same way. So I think in due time, they’ll get back on point where they’re talking again and get that relationship back."
Perkins, Durant and Westbrook were teammates in Oklahoma City from February 2011 to February 2015.
