Kevin Durant has a response to Jalen Rose's prediction that he'll leave OKC for Houston.
Jalen Rose continues making his sensational predictions - earlier he "predicted" that a 50 year old Michael Jordan would play one game this season - and said that Durant would bolt for the Rockets when his contract was up with the Thunder...in 2016.
Asked about this claim that he's headed to H-Town, Durantula responded saying it's so far down the line (which it is), and that he loves playing in Oklahoma.
Q: Did you hear what Jalen Rose said about the Houston thing?
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.
James Harden and Dwight Howard haven't even played a single meaningful minute together yet, and Rose is already making this absurd prediction. Sure, if the Thunder don't make progress towards a championship there's a possibility KD will leave, but to assert that he's got one foot out the door already is ridiculous.
