“I like where I’m at right now. I enjoy playing for OKC,” he said. “As of today, I love it there, man. I want to be there. I love the fans, I love my team, I love everything about the city. I don’t have any plans to move.”

There were already sparks making their way towards the fire when you signed with Jay Z’s Roc Nation Sports but then you go an add the ‘as of today’ part?
Granted, it could have been a slip of the tongue and meant nothing. It really does seem that Durant enjoys playing for the Thunder and likes the ‘small market’ feel rather than playing in a city like Chicago or New York, but the ‘as of today’ part did seem a little weird.
He’ll have three years to figure it out as he’s signed through the 2015-2016 season.
