Russell Westbrook on Durant's Warriors are 'selfless' comment: 'That's cute'
Thursday October 13th, 2016

Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook took a moment to reply to Kevin Durant's recent comments that he is happy to play for the Golden State Warriors, a team he called ‘selfless.’

“I feel really grateful to play for a team like that and play with a bunch of players who are selfless and enjoy the game in its purest form,” Durant said according to the Mercury News.

Westbrook, who played with Durant from 2008 until his recent departure, responded by simply calling Durant's comments “cute.” 

“My job is to be able to worry about what's going on here,” Westbrook said. “We're gonna worry about all the selfish guys we got over here apparently. So we gonna figure that out.”
