Dirk Nowitzki on Why Durant Should Stay In OKC


Dirk Nowitzki won’t be recruiting Kevin Durant to Dallas — in fact — he’s one of many who believe KD won’t leave the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Dirk’s reasoning is simple — the Thunder are “loaded.”

“He wants to play to win,” the Dallas Mavericks veteran told reporters Tuesday at his children’s basketball camp. “He’s got a great group of guys there in OKC … He’s got a superstar player next to him. They’re loaded where he’s at.”

If Durant does stay put, it could be more about maximizing his deal — and less with his belief that the Thunder can get over the hump out West.
