It didn’t take long for Kevin Durant to hear about ESPN’s Jalen Rose’s prediction that the Oklahoma City Thunder star would leave his current team for the Houston Rockets once he had the chance.
His response? Well it was brief, direct and everything you would expect it to be.

Q: Did you hear what Jalen Rose said about the Houston thing?
Q: Do you have any thoughts on that?
Nah, I’m here for the Thunder (laughs). I mean, that’s all I can say. I’m not thinking far down the line at all. It’s about today. Today we got better against the Chicago Bulls. I can’t tell the future. I can’t speak on that. That’s his opinion. I’m just going to keep playing for the Thunder. I love playing here.
Q: People probably will continue to say that for the next three years.
Q: How do you deal with that?
I mean, just let them know I’m not thinking that far down the line, I guess. I mean, I love my teammates. I love where I live. I love playing for this organization. So I’m just taking it a day at a time.
Rose predicted that Durant would leave the Thunder to join James Harden and Dwight Howard in Houston. He also predicted that Russell Westbrook would sign with the Los Angeles Lakers once his contract expired in Oklahoma City, as well.
