Washington Wizards fans aren't exactly hiding their desire to have hometown kid Kevin Durant return as a free agent.

Durant, though, isn't exactly a fan of their actions, calling them "kind of disrespectful" to current Wizards players.

Max Kellerman agrees. But the SportsNation crew wasn't unanimous. And apparently some Wizards fans didn't take too kindly to Durant's words, reportedly booing him when he touched the ball during Tuesday night's game between the Oklahoma City Thunder and Washington.

The Golden State Warriors are 5-0. They cruised past their first four opponents, then stormed back from 10 points down in the fourth quarter to top the previously unbeaten Los Angeles Clippers.

Could this team, which won 67 games and then an NBA title a season ago, actually be better? SportsNation guests Guy Torry and Braylon Edwards say absolutely. "You're winning with Luke Walton as your coach right now," Torry said in the video above, before comparing the team to "Pretty Woman."

Lebron James & Carmelo AnthonyDavid Richard/USA TODAY Sports

Carmelo Anthony started to get a little wistful Wednesday morning while talking about ex-teammates Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith.

"It seems like LeBron [James] took all my family from me," he said hours before the Knicks-Cavs game.

It was a funny line in a light-hearted moment from Anthony.

But he has a genuine bond with Shumpert and Smith, who were traded to James' Cavaliers last January.

Anthony watched both players -- and his buddy LeBron -- with the pride of an older brother during the NBA Finals last season.

"It was more kind of [like] seeing your family out there than anything," he said. "I didn't watch it kind of from a competitive standpoint. I watched two guys -- J.R., I've known him, I've been with him for almost 10 years; Shump is a guy who came in and was kind of a little brother to me; and of course LeBron, who I've been with, kind of connected to since high school. So to see all three of those guys competing at that level, it was more watching my family out there."

'Sports are boring' -- Gregg Popovich

The Kansas City Royals closed out their World Series win over the New York Mets on Sunday night, coming back from 2-0 down in the ninth inning and winning 7-2 in 12.

So, with the San Antonio Spurs in NYC to play the New York Knicks on Monday, coach Gregg Popovich was asked if he watched Game 5.

No he didn't.

"If it's nighttime, it's dinnertime. Dinner and wine. No baseball, no football, sports are boring. I'm serious. You think I'm being funny. Why would I want to watch a baseball game when I could go to dinner and relax with friends and enjoy it?"

Classic Pop.
