Kevin Durant's free-agent departure to the Golden State Warriors in 2016 brought the ire of the Oklahoma City Thunder fan base.

His mother recalls one fan even fired bullets into Durant's jersey, and it was those hostile acts that pushed Durant away from the city in which he spent eight seasons.

"I'll never be attached to that city again because of that," Durant told J.R. Moehringer of The Wall Street Journal. "I eventually wanted to come back to that city and be part of that community and organization, but I don't trust nobody there.

"That shit must have been fake, what they was doing. The organization, the GM, I ain't talked to none of those people, even had a nice exchange with those people, since I left."

The response to Durant's return to Oklahoma City as a member of the Warriors still remains a sore spot for the forward after almost three years.

Members of the Thunder organization didn't speak to the superstar while fans greeted him with chants of "cupcake" throughout the game.

Former Thunder big man Kendrick Perkins frequently used the word "cupcake" to call out his teammates when he felt they were acting "soft."

"Such a venomous toxic feeling when I walked into that arena," Durant said. "And just the organization, the trainers, and equipment managers, those dudes is pissed off at me? Ain't talking to me? I'm like, "Yo, this is where we going with this? Because I left a team and went to play with another team?'"

Durant averaged 27.4 points, seven boards, and 3.7 assists across 641 appearances for the Seattle SuperSonics/Oklahoma City franchise. The 30-year-old also made seven All-Star appearances and led the team to the NBA Finals during the 2011-12 campaign.
