The Thunder plays the Wizards tonight in D.C. and the story line will undoubtedly revolve around Kevin Durant’s return to his hometown.
KD, whose contract is up after this season, has repeatedly deflected questions surrounding his future. Durant is focused on the here and now, but that won’t stop Wizards fans from attempting to court him.
Expect to see signs, banners, KD jerseys and to hear a lot of cheering when Durant touches the ball. Durant may not want to talk about it, but he can’t avoid the hype.
