Did Kevin Martin take shot at former Thunder teammate Kevin Durant?

For 77 games in 2012, Kevin Martin teamed up with NBA All-Star Kevin Durant as teammates on the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Apparently, it wasn’t too fun for Martin as he took a shot at the NBA’s poster boy recently, suggesting that Durant is more concerned with his stats than anything else.

Martin, who signed a four year, $28 million dollar deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves this past offseason dropped the not so subtle shot in a recent interview:

Kevin Martin on playing with the Wolves: “This is such a fun team to play on. Nobody is trying to lead the league in scoring here.”


Now granted, Martin will likely attempt to swing damage control by saying he was just speaking in a general term, but Martin likely wasn’t thrilled with being regulated to a bench role and made a third/fourth offensive option when he’d always been a top dog in Sacramento and Houston. Then ten year veteran once nearly averaged 25 points per game as a member of the Kings.

Either way, Martin clearly had a purpose with that little dig.
