Durant: Comment from ESPN's Smith not true

Kevin Durant said Friday that a comment from ESPN's Stephen A. Smith indicating the Thunder forward would consider Los Angeles his "primary objective" if he didn't re-sign in OKC isn't true.

One ongoing camp battle for the Thunder is at starting shooting guard, but there may be a few things to read into already. Russell Westbrook was asked about what it's like having Andre Roberson defend him and said Roberson has never really guarded him because they're always on the same team in practice. Billy Donovan was asked what he's looking for most in a starting 2-guard and talked about defense, which is Roberson's specialty. Hmm...

Billy Donovan on coaching Russell Westbrook so far: "One thing I'd say about Russell, it's amazing when you're out there on the court with him, he's been in the league for a while but the stuff that I'm throwing out at him on offense, he knows his position and he knows the four other positions and I think that speaks volumes how cerebral a guy he is out there on the court, how much he sees. As a coach that's great, because I can get a lot of feedback from him."

Billy Donovan on getting his offensive scheme installed: "I’d say that yesterday and today, my philosophy and my feeling was to really get a lot in and be able to play a game by tomorrow. I’m not saying that we would do anything well, but to at least have the shell and the concepts where there’s underneath out of bounds, there’s side out of bounds, there’s halfcourt offenses, our defensive system as in pick-and-roll coverage packages, that sort of thing. Like if we had to play a game right now, there’s some things we could go to."

Kevin Durant: 'I'm the same player I was'

"The most humble way I can say it is I’ve always got feel," the Thunder's star said after the team's first practice. "Every time I step on the court I feel great. I know how to play the game. My body might say a little different, but I always feel like I’m in rhythm." Durant missed 55 games last season and hasn't played in an NBA game since Feb. 18 after undergoing three surgeries to repair a Jones fracture in his right foot.

Kevin Durant asked if he wants Thunder fans to lobbying him all season: "That's something I can't control. I'm not one of those guys looking for praise or looking for people to lobby me or whatever. I've never looked for stuff like that. I just enjoy playing the game of basketball and I enjoy these wonderful fans here and I just want to give them the best version of me I can. That's all I can do. I can't control everything else."
