You can relax now, Thunder fans. Yesterday, we put up a post featuring a video of Jalen Rose predicting that Kevin Durant is going to leave Oklahoma City and join the Rockets when he becomes a free agent in 2016. But according to KD, who just got wind of Rose's prediction, he is not going to Houston in '16. Er, at least, he's not thinking about leaving for Houston just yet. He just responded to Rose's prediction.

"I'm here for the Thunder," he said. "I mean, that's all I can say. I'm not thinking that far down the line at all. It's about today…I can't tell the future. I can't speak on that. That's [Rose's] opinion. I'm just going to keep playing for the Thunder. I love playing here."

Okay, so he didn't come right out and say, "I'M NOT GOING TO PLAY FOR THE ROCKETS…EVER." But at this point, he's still three long years away from free agency. So what do you expect him to say? Our best advice for Thunder fans: Just relax and enjoy KD's greatness. There's no sense in worrying about what's going to happen or where he's going to end up three years from now.
