Are Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant "cool" with each other or nah? Well, here's what is going on in the latest episode of As the World of Westbrook and Durant Turns.

Earlier this month, Durant attended a Nike event where the state of his relationship with Westbrook was brought up. "We're still cool. We're going to compete against each other at the highest level," KD told the crowd. "We're gonna have fun against each other. We're still cool." On Friday, the Thunder held their annual media day, and when a reporter mentioned Durant's assessment of where they currently stand, Westbrook took a completely different route, saying, "I haven't talked to him." 

Since announcing his decision to sign with the Golden State Warriors, Durant's relationship with Westbrook has been strained, to say the least. After KD claimed that he informed Russ of his desire to play with the Warriors, reports surfaced that Westbrook was under the assumption that Durant was staying in Oklahoma City. However, Durant countered, saying that the report is "false."

Westbrook has been relatively silent about his feelings towards Durant, opting to just laugh it off. However, the same can't be said for Russ's teammate Enes Kanter, who has been tossing subs at Durant every chance he gets.
