Kevin Durant ready for not-so-friendly reception in return to OKC

Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant knows he’s in for a real treat in his return to Oklahoma City.

Durant,as you know, bolted Oklahoma City after 9 years and signed a two-year, $54.275 million deal with the Warriors.

“I know what’s important [to Thunder fans] and their team is way more important than just one player. … I’m not going in there acting like I’m going to be praised, I know how it’s going to be,” Durant told ESPN’s  SportsCenter on Tuesday.

“I know they’re going to be rowdy in there, man,” Durant told Stein. “I’ve been a part of some of the loudest nights in that arena. So I know it’s not going to be the friendliest welcome, but, like I said, I can’t wait to see the people that I really built relationships with over my time there and, you know, I’m sure fans that I got to know throughout my time playing there, even though they might not cheer for me out loud, I’ll give ’em a wink and they know what we had deep down inside.”
