Last season provided plenty of drama, but the NBA’s collective microscope was focused on the fractured relationship between Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, after the former’s departure to Golden State in free agency.

12 months have now passed since his decision and according to newly-acquired Oklahoma City small forward Paul George, the pair are back on good terms.

“Whatever went between him and Russ, that’s their business,” George told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on a recent episode of The Woj Pod.

“It’s not my point to want to know or want to figure out what happened. It’s pointless. They are buddies, they are back good again. I’m here to build something different and something special.”

While Durant went on to win the NBA title and Finals MVP, Westbrook was named regular season MVP and perhaps a combination of time and individual success from both parties has accelerated the healing of wounds.

With George in tow, Westbrook now has a running mate capable of challenging the Warriors. We’ll just have to wait to see if the niceties make their way onto the court.
