Oklahoma City's scorn for Kevin Durant leaving the Thunder to join the Golden State Warriors is beginning to set in.
On Tuesday morning, less than 24 hours removed from KD's announcement, the Thunder removed a blown-up portrait of their former superstar from their Chesapeake Energy Arena.
This comes after Thunder GM told ESPN that he only found out about KD's decision minutes before his post on the Players' Tribune went live Monday.
"I found out a few minutes before the media," Presti said. "He called me with his agent and business manager, and we had a conversation. Kevin was great."
While the Thunder organization is taking the high road over KD leaving OKC to join the Warriors less than two months since they blew a 3-1 lead to lose to Golden State in the Western Conference Finals, many Thunder fans are doing the opposite.
Peep this Thunder fan, who made it a point to visit KD's house in OKC.
And check out this father, who drove his son to tears letting him know that KD had left OKC to play for the Warriors.
Is OKC going too hard on Durant after he gave them nine good years or does this kind of reaction come with the territory following a splashy move like this?
We understand it, considering KD came within a game of defeating the Warriors, only to join them. And this is a Warriors' squad that went an NBA-best 73-9 with back-to-back MVP Stephen Curry, and fellow All-Stars Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.
