Do Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook like each other again? Maybe…
The former Oklahoma City Thunder teammates are set to play on the same team at the All-Star Game tonight. Both were drafted by LeBron James.
Durant and Westbrook were on the same team last year, too, and shared a cool moment during the contest. Outside of that one play, though, there didn’t appear to be a ton of interaction.
Their relationship appears to have improved. Westbrook and Durant (along with Kyrie Irving) were yucking it up on the court prior to tonight’s contest.
Check out this video from The Ringer:
That’s pretty cool to see. Maybe we’ll see Westbrook and Durant on the same team again some day…probably not, though.
Meanwhile, we’re minutes away from tipoff at STAPLES Center. It looks like the game will start at about 8:20 p.m. E.T.
The contest will be televised on TNT. It’ll be Team LeBron against Team Steph.
