The beef is real. Once teammates and best friends it now seems that Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook are not on the same page, or reading the same book for that matter. This past week the pot was set to a low boil when Durant served up some subliminal shots in Westbrook's direction while attending a open forum event at Stanford's Graduate School of Business. The quote is in relation to the family atmosphere in his new home, Golden State.

"You can really feel it when you walk in the door, in the practice facility, everybody is just together. That's something that I can appreciate as a basketball player and someone who values relationships. You can tell that's what they stand on, that's what we stand on. I feel really grateful to play on a team like that, with players who are selfless and enjoy the game in its purest form. They make it about the players, they make it about the environment, so it was really an easy choice."

Thursday, Westbrook was asked for comment, and here's what he had to offer.

The NBA season can't get here soon enough. The good news is we won't have to wait much longer until Westbrook and Durant share the floor once again. Thunder play at Golden State within the first 10 days into the season, on November 3rd.
