Therefore, when Kevin Durant left what he built in OKC to join the Golden State Warriors, many assumed Westbrook wouldn't be too fond of Durant's move to join the team that most recently knocked the Thunder out of the playoffs.

Clearly Westbrook looks to be in a relaxed setting and was candid in his response, but it'll be interesting to see what he says when he fields Durant questions once the season starts. Knowing Westbrook's on court personality, he'll likely use his former Thunder Buddy's departure as fuel to his competitive fire.
