There’s clearly some bitterness between Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.

Durant left for the Warriors, and Westbrook doubled down with the Thunder. There could be issues handling the split.

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports:

In Westbrook’s world, Durant had been deleted like his old teammate’s text message saying goodbye on the way to Golden State.

Did Durant reach out in any other, more personal, ways? Did Westbrook respond before deleting the text?

This isn’t necessarily as harsh as it seems.

But it sure seems pretty darn harsh.
