    When he says "I am not thinking that far down the line in the future," it means that there is a chance, maybe even a good chance, that he's leaving.

    what the hell...I wasn't expecting that at all. By saying "I'm not thinking that far down the line" means there is actually something to it. Either he leaked this to Jalen so that Presti would get the message to up the thunder or he really is considering it.

    KD is one of the most loyal and classiest guys in the NBA, hard to see him leave.

    "People probably will continue to say that for the next three years."

    KD did not say anything to stop me from talking, interesting.

    Yea. A guy like KD is super loyal. I expected him to just be like "No." He didn't dismiss it 100% like I expected, meanign he is trying to send a message to management and is still loyal, or is actually considering it.

    Then again you guys have to consider that saying "Thunder 4 Life" will have put him in the same situation as LeBron James in Cleveland. He's saving his own ass by saying what he just said. Just in case he intends to leave.

    Look if Steven Adams turns out to be a beast then OKC might be a very good team with reggie jackson off the bench im sure that will change his whole mindset but if they suck for some reason, he gone

    So it means he is at least contemplating leaving.

    From what I read, I don't feel 100% sure that he's gonna stay in OKC. He didn't rule out leaving for me. Maybe I'm reading too deep in to it, but maybe not. Come on here KD, after we beat you in the playoffs though. I'm still salty about him saying, "This my city!" last year in the playoffs. Picking on the 8th seed smh.

    He can't say he'll never leave. He can't say he's thinking about leaving. It's a no-win situation. What he said was probably the best he could do. And I agree with him: "Unfortunately."
