He’s going to take heat for this from some of you. The same way Chris Bosh did last year. It’s not manly to cry. He is a mama’s boy.

You say that and you would be wrong.

What we want from our stars is for them to care. To care about the team, to care about winning, to not just be playing for the money and the fame, but with passion.

Kevin Durant is showing you how much he cared. How much he wanted this. It hurts and if you are a Thunder fan — a basketball fan — you should be proud of him. He’s going to learn from this and the Thunder will be back.
