Andre Roberson didn't come to the Oklahoma State Fair expecting to answer questions about Kevin Durant. Neither did Patrick Patterson or Doug McDermott, two players who have no idea what it's like to suit up for an entire season with the former Thunder star. The world wanted an answer for why Durant wanted out of Oklahoma City. It received one Saturday when Durant posted 40 words in two tweets in reply to a random fan question. On Tuesday at a technology conference in San Francisco, Durant apologized for those Thunder-centric tweets, calling them “childish,” calling himself “an idiot.” The Thunder's response? Roberson said all the team can do it worry about itself — even if he admitted Durant's tweets more than a year after his departure from Oklahoma City in free agency are kind of annoying. “I mean, it's only gonna keep being relevant the more we talk about it, so I just don't like to touch on it,” Roberson said. “Can't control it. We control what we do over here in our organization. “I just leave it alone and it is what it is.” Durant couldn't leave it alone this weekend. When a fan asked him on Twitter to give one good reason why he left Oklahoma City for Golden State in free agency — which was his right to do — Durant went in deep. “He didn't like the organization or playing for Billy Donovan,” Durant replied via Twitter in third person. “His roster wasn't that good, it was just him and russ(ell Westbrook). Imagine taking russ off that team, see how bad they were. Kd can't win a championship with those cats."
How does the Thunder feel about Kevin Durant's comments?
