Durant will only speak with Westbrook 'if it happens organically'

Kevin Durant isn't planning on making up with Russell Westbrook this weekend, but he's open to the possibility.

The former Oklahoma City Thunder co-stars haven't been on speaking terms since KD announced last summer he was joining Golden State Warriors, and they had an intense matchup last weekend in OKC.

They're set to share a locker room for the first time since last season - this time as teammates on the Western Conference All-Star team.

Asked if he'll use the opportunity to make amends with his ex-teammate, Durant said he doesn't know.

"It isn't even something I'm thinking about, to be honest," he said Friday on SportsCenter. "If it happens organically, it does, but I'm not planning to do anything. ... If it happens, it does. If it doesn't, it's no big deal."

Instead, the former MVP's priority is to enjoy the weekend's festivities.

"I'm going to handle All-Star weekend like I always do. Get in and get out. Do everything I'm supposed to do. Play the game and have some fun. I ain't come here for it to be any drama or have a heart to heart with anybody," he explained.

Durant, who was booed and viciously trolled by OKC fans last Saturday, also opened up about going from hero to villain in the eyes of the Thunder faithful.

"It's hard," he admitted. "It's a thin line, because you care so much about the fan base and the support that they give. But at the same time, you can't live your life solely based off of what other people want for you. Even your family, even your friends, you gotta make a decision for yourself. That's what I did. I respect anybody that does that.

"It is a fine line between knowing that you represent a fan base and they care so much about you. That's what made it so tough, but sometimes you gotta make the hard decision."
