maybe we’ll just dunk everything instead.

I got a lot of respect for [Durant]. I’m a fan of him as a basketball player, but people took it like I was going at him, which I wasn’t. What I was saying was about myself, it wasn’t about anybody else. I was saying joining other big time players and joining a team like Golden State is that something I couldn’t see myself doing. We play this game to win and if that’s what somebody is willing to do to win, and if that’s what they want to go and do, then that’s fine. It’s not against the rules. We can’t be mad at anybody for joining whatever team they want to join, but what I was saying, I’d rather do it with the team I have. I’d rather build it up to being a championship team.
