Durant, who was officially named the 2013-14 NBA Most Valuable Player on Tuesday, and the Oklahoma City Thunder are currently battling the Los Angeles Clippers in the second round of the playoffs. Instead of being happy for the team, one Seattle television station—KIRO 7—is refusing to acknowledge the existence of the "Thunder."
"The former Seattle SuperSonics are in the NBA playoffs. Throughout their run, KIRO 7 promises you we won’t say OKC or their team name in our newscasts," the station posted on its Facebook page.
If the Thunder go on to win the 2013-14 NBA championship, it will be interesting to see how the television station treats the "former Sonics."
