Kevin Durant faced a lot of flak when he left OKC Thunder for the Warriors. The two teams were considered to be some sort of rivals. However, in his recent interview on All The Smoke, Kevin Durant claimed that he did not give much thought about the 'rivalry' between both the NBA teams. Kevin Durant said that all he cared about was developing his own game. He thought the best way to do so was to join the Warriors and play alongside the likes of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.
