"Somebody asked me about it a couple months ago, like a hypothetical, if a championship were to happen what I'd do and I think I answered 'I wouldn't go, '" he said. This is my third year here, and we haven't won every game.
"It's just a great group of guys, great community, great arena, great fans", Durant said.
