Default Durant chirps Westbrook

I was listening to ESPN radio early and they said Durant had called Westbrook out on something mid game and they got into bit of an argument. Just wondering if anyone watched the game and was able to hear/see anything?

Westbrook kicked the ball out to Sefolosha, who passed up an open 3, then yelled at him 'shoot the fuckin ball', then Durant tried to calm him down, and it carried over to the sidelines during a time out

Would you trade Westbrook for Stephen Curry?

I have a feeling it's really just Westbrook's bad. He was frustrated with going scoreless and picking up fouls and the heat of the moment got to him. Whether it be immaturity or he's just really competetive, I'm not sure. Apparently it happens all the time between them.

Saw this as well, but I missed the part where they had this controversy. I doubt it will really hurt any team chemistry though. But Chris Webber and crew were talking about that Westbrook might get traded now LOL!
He's still young and developing, so I really doubt hell get traded imo. Was just having a tough night

I wouldn't do that if I were the Thunder. Westbrook has a lot of potential in him yet and is already so good. At the very least, Westbrook is a way better defender.

Does Curry have any real chance of making All NBA 2nd team in his 3rd year like Westbrook did last season?

Not sure I'd do it either because Westbrook is better and has more potential than Curry, but I read this interesting piece on ESPN:

One way or another, he can't be a part of their long-term planning ... Now, about the money. Westbrook becomes a restricted free agent after this season. He's about to get real expensive. And thanks to the new 'Derrick Rose Rule,' which allows players who win an MVP or make the All-Star starting lineup or All-NBA team twice in the first four years, he could be even more expensive. As in, eligible for a contract that pays him 30 percent of the salary cap. Westbrook was second-team All-NBA last season. Rose Rule already bumped Durant's paycheck by an extra $2.5 million a year, and Westbrook could be living in that same $18 million-a-season neighborhood. Depending on what other moves the Thunder make, a huge boost to Westbrook's salary could put Oklahoma City in luxury tax territory next season and beyond. Starting in 2013-14 the tax will be progressively more punitive than the simple dollar-for-dollar surcharge in place now, and there are additional penalties for repeat tax 'offenders.' In addition tax teams have restrictions on their abilities to make trades and sign players to the full mid-level exception. Within minutes of the bench spat Wednesday night Twitter exploded with all kinds of trade suggestions for Westbrook. But I didn't see anyone mention the best idea: to Golden State for Stephen Curry. Curry is still on his rookie contract through 2012-13 (when he'll make $4 million) so he would almost guarantee the Thunder stay below the tax threshold for another year, and he probably won't be eligible for the Rose Rule pay boost, which would keep his maximum salary 5 percent lower than what Westbrook's might be when it's time to re-sign him.
