Warriors were "furious and bewildered" how Thunder treated Kevin Durant's return to OKC on February

NBA
The Warriors will play agains the Thunder tonight. And despite the injury, Kevin Durant traveled with the team to OKC where, last February, he got now a too warn welcome back after his decision to leave the franchise to join the Warriors in the summer.

Per Chris Haynes of ESPN, The Golden State Warriors organization was furious and bewildered about the inactivity from Oklahoma City Thunder leadership leading up to that first Durant return contest on Feb. 11, league sources told ESPN.
Sources say the Warriors were of the mindset that someone from ownership or management should have addressed the media on Durant’s behalf to help ease the tension upon his return….
The Warriors’ belief, according to sources, is that the Thunder’s silence contributed to the raw emotions, outrage and indignation that created an unsettling, hostile atmosphere for a player many consider to be the franchise’s all-time best. The Warriors felt, according to sources, that for a player who meant so much to a city — a small-market city at that — a courtesy greeting was in order from top brass, who should have issued their fans a reminder and proper perspective on Durant’s role in elevating the Thunder into a perennial championship-contending team


This is what Thunder management had to say about that.
