Oklahoma City fans didn’t wait until tipoff to let their departed superstar know how they felt about his decision to join conference rival Golden State last summer.

From the moment he exited the hotel, his former supporters made it crystal clear.

Graphic signs, loud boos and even insulting costumes deriding Durant’s defection to the Warriors were in full force throughout the city and, in the hours leading up to the game itself, in Chesapeake Energy Arena itself.

The chilly reception continued during the game, when Durant was booed in introductions and whenever he touched the ball on offense. The Warriors dominated the game to win 130-114.

After the win, Durant told ESPN’s Lisa Salters he expected the boos to be “a little louder.”
