Fans Argue Over Whether Kevin Durant Is A Traitor

Screencap via

Kevin Durant has joined the Golden State Warriors, and Oklahoma City Thunder fans are figuring out how to process the news. Some are thankful for what he did during his nine years in Oklahoma City, others are burning his jersey, and still others are crying and would punch him in the face.


But the best video I’ve seen so far features a Thunder fan in a Durant jersey with “traitor” taped over the name, standing outside the Thunder arena holding a “Golden State?! That’s FucKD” sign, getting yelled at by a woman who thinks that Durant put Oklahoma City on the map, and a grown-ass man is allowed to make whatever decision he wants.

Happy Independence Day!
