New Report of How KD Told Westbrook He's Leaving Shows They Weren't Friends at All

Russell Westbrook claims he found about the Kevin Durant news of him leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder for the Golden State Warriors just like how everyone else did: KD's post on The Players' Tribune and reports via ESPN, TV and more.

However according to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, KD did inform the point guard he was leaving, just not in quite the way you would expect.

According to Woj via BSO, it's implied that KD basically broke up with Russ via text message:

When Russell Westbrook traveled to Oklahoma City to meet with general manager Sam Presti in the aftermath of the franchise’s lost weekend in the Hamptons, Westbrook held no interest for a post-mortem on Kevin Durant. For a front office still mired in angst and anger, Westbrook delivered a sobering splash of ice water: What’s next?

No nostalgia, no reflection and no regret: In Westbrook’s world, Durant had been deleted like his old teammate’s text message saying goodbye on the way to Golden State.

Breaking up almost any kind of relationship over text message is definitely considered something you should not do. If you do that, you really don't care about the person as much as people perceive you did.

With how KD supposedly delivered the news as well as previous reports regarding their situation, it doesn't look like these two were friends at all despite what we may have seen on the court when they were teammates for the past eight years.

It looks like their relationship was just strictly business. Yes, even this:

That's why he has Cameron Payne for that.
