3:37 yoo, u a lyin bitch bro, not tell Russ when u left FUCK U KD,. You left Russell Westbrook like, Victor Olidipo(IDK if I spelled it right), and James Harden. U joined a super team that already had a amazing lineup just for easy ring.
Ace Dragon (10 months ago)
Fuck KD. Russ got no business with that bitch ass nigga
JeauSchmeau (10 months ago)
this video acting like everything Westbrook has done was a jab at Durant a lot of the talking points seem overly speculative
Ghost Ghost (10 months ago)
Kevin Durant is fake he couldn't even call the man when he left.
M VGA (10 months ago)
Kevin Durant genuinely is a nice guy. He made a business decision that's all....nothing personal. Russell Westbrook needs to accept KD's decision and be the good friends they once were.
Joshua g (10 months ago)
I watched Westbrook OKC shoot them out of games and pass Durant the ball with two seconds left on the shot clock for years. I don't blame Durant for leaving. In twenty year people will only remember Durant winning chips. Plus it's not like GS was this dynasty that people pretend they are. GS got ONE chip against a depleted Cavs team and then couldn't beat them when the Cavs were healthy. GS needed KD. Also Westbrook is being a petty little bitch. He needs to grow a pair and STFU.

John M (11 months ago)
I know its a business, but you don't leave your brother to go to the enemy team. KD was my favorite player in the league for being Humble, but not after this bitch move man. Westbrook has Heart, KD runs.

KD is probably the biggest cunt in the league

Why was KD discharged from OKC? It seems that GSW has kind of too many star players. ...... I can't listen to this all with full attention. I'd better use PC.

I am a Warriors fan, but I just want them to get back together after this season. Like this if you agree
Bilal Ibrahim (1 year ago)
Complex..... SHUT THE FUCK UP. YOU AND THE MEDIA CREATED THE BEEF AND IT IS NOT THAT COMPLICATED. One left the team, something personal we would never know about goes along in there then, they both hate each other. Westbrook hates him more than he does though becuase it's Westbrook.
Will Jordan (1 year ago)
KD and steph is lowkey fun to watch but not nearly as hype as russ and Durant was

you left out the part when Westbrook said ,"Thank you Kyrie." and ran off during practice because Kyrie hit that game winner against GS over christmas

Jay50 Kicks Any Team Besides Warriors and Cavs Because they have been best Team's in League I Would Not of Mind if He Went to Spurs or Clippers to Challenge Warriors
Music (1 year ago)
here's what I think. On the COURT and in front of cameras Westbrook does not fuck with Durant at all. OFF the court, Westbrook would be cool with KD BUT I'm sure KD is just too 'shy' I guess to confront him off the court.
eb (1 year ago)
bro yall callin kd a bitch yall the real pussies why tf do yall care so fuckin much about another grown man decision . he made a buisness decision that he felt benefited his career , and he did whats best for him and didnt give a fuck about what yall thought . thats sum real shit 💯 medias just tryna make storylines , and yall the reason they keep doin it . he didnt do nothin bad , hes still a good hearted nigga and didnt do nothin but change rings . yall call him a pussy , but he aint listenin . he too busy countin his ring and millys while yall stay hating on social media 🤷‍♂️ this is comin from a clippers fan so dont even say shit to me lol

DeeDeeBeatz (1 year ago)
It's not really that complicated. Westbrook is a family man. Kinda like Garnett. All his teammates are close brothers to him and he does everything he can to push them and keep them united. But once you leave, you're not part of that family no more. You're the enemy, and Westbrook wants to kill you.

The only reason they had beef was because everyone hyped it up. Obviously it makes them competitors but you guys are reaching. Stay out of sports, complex.

DLS (1 year ago)
Bruh kd was at the thunder for so long but you pathetic fans are calling he a snake because he wanted to move on to better years he gave so much to the team but he knew he wasn't winning you can't ask someone to fail for their career and then get made when the prosper salty ass fans bruh
DLS (1 year ago)
Yall keep forgetting this shit is just a sport tho and how have some thunder fans moved on like its happened ages ago is all I'm saying and kd still has people calling him snakes
DrakeSuperFan 123 (1 year ago)
Lol Are You A Dumbass IT's Not that He Left It's that he left to Warriors
Le'Trell Whitehurst (1 year ago)
That would be like if your girl left you for another dude and didn't tell you. You find out about it through everyone else and then she finally sends you a text after she already left. You would probably be very pissed. That's what this situation basically is. Durant is the girlfriend in this situation
Le'Trell Whitehurst (1 year ago)
They're mad at how he handled it. Westbrook had to find out through the media at the same time we all did and a text KD sent after he made his decision. That ain't cool especially if you called that dude your brother. He should've picked up the phone call his supposed "brother " and give him a heads up. If Aldridge had the decency to call lillard and let him know that he was leaving then Durant should've been able to do the same but he chose not to.
Yumi Tokushige (1 year ago)
Long news. If you think of something else than play, you could get injured or ruin your season.

If you think Curry is a better playmaker you're hallucinating. If Westbrook had all those shooters around him he would have 30 assists a game lmao.
