The years they spent playing together were always special, but the relationship went south very quickly once Durant decided to join the Golden State Warriors.
One forgotten matter in the situation was the dinner conversation between the two stars the night before.
According to Ramona Shelburne of ESPN, Westbrook hoped to convince his teammate to stay prior to his free agency period.
With a little help from assistant coach Royal Ivey and Nick Collison, Westbrook offered to change whatever was needed to make things work out.
Durant eventually bolted and the reports of the severed relationship began surfacing immediately.
The last straw broke when the Thunder conceded a 3-1 lead to the Warriors in the Western Conference Finals before Durant eventually called it a career with his old team.
