With Kevin Durant's jaw-on-the-floor, Twitter-on-fire decision to ditch OKC and join the Golden State Warriors, you might be wondering – what does KD's longtime partner in crime Russell Westbrook think about all this?

Well, we don't really have any idea. The 27-year-old point guard – known for his "Space Jam"-level intensity – hasn't said anything publicly about Durant leaving him. There's been nothing on Twitter, but here's his lone Instagram:

And a few screengrabs of the three Snapchats he's sent out:

Something you might notice – not once does he mention Durant, or basketball.

What's next for Westbrook and OKC?

This is one of the most interesting big questions now.

Thunder General Manager Sam Presti had this to say:

Thunder beat writer Anthony Slater says, from an organizational standpoint, Oklahoma City needs to figure out if Westbrook can and wants to be the top banana on a title team. And if he might leave, then they should tear it down to rebuild.

He's only got one year left on his contract, and OKC could consider extending him now – giving him a raise and locking him up for the future, ESPN explains.

But NBA reporter David Aldridge tweeted there's "no chance" Westbrook will be open to that right now.

And if that's the case, ESPN says other league executives believe Oklahoma City will think about trading the All-Star.
