You can call Kevin Durant a lot of things, especially after his move to the Golden State Warriors last year, but one thing you can't call him is dishonest.

In an interview with Durant, Golden State beat writer Anthony Slater asked a question a lot of us have been wanting to hear for a while now - what does KD think about the Oklahoma City Thunder adding All-Star Paul George?

Kevin was surprisingly upbeat about the move.

"I texted him congrats and told him he was going to love it there. It's just a matter of what type of team they're going to be, who's going to do what, who is going to step up."

"But they got Russ and PG and Steven Adams to be their Big 3. I think if they feed off each other, it could be great. I'm a fan of the game, so I can see if something is going to work or not and I think that's going to be a really, really great pairing. It's going to suck for us and the rest of the league. But as a fan of the game, it's going to be tight to see how they work that thing out."​

The full interview can be viewed below.

It's weird how Durant didn't touch on his time with Westbrook in OKC when answering that question though, isn't it? He mentions PG and Westbrook would be a great pairing because he's "a fan of the game," so he can see if something is going to work or not, not the fact that he played with Russell for eight years and he's a nice teammate to have on the court. Strange.
