Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant said Sunday he does not actually hate the media. 

Friday, Durant criticized the media, saying “they don’t like [the Thunder” and “nitpick” Durant and teammate Russell Westbrook. He went on to say “[the media] don’t mean nothing.”

The comments were not the first time Durant had been critical of reporters, telling them at last year’s All-Star game “you guys really don’t know [expletive].” Westbrook also has a long history of stonewalling reporters.

Entering Sunday, Durant was averaging 26.5 points and 7.7 rebounds per game this season. The Thunder are third in the Western Conference behind the Warriors and Spurs.
