Durant, Brooks respond to Magic Johnson's comments

Magic Johnson previously spoke about his expectation for both the Thunder and the Lakers this season. In those comments, he still favored the Thunder, despite the Lakers' massive overhaul, bringing in both Steve Nash and Dwight Howard.

Kevin Durant responds:

"I’m just trying to focus on one day at a time...That (winning the title) is so far down the line. It’s easy for guys outside the circle looking in to think that far down the line. But us, we’re just taking it one day at a time. Of course we want to get there. Of course that’s every team’s goal, especially ours. But we know it’s going to take a process. We can’t get bored with it. We’ve just got to take it a day at a time, see where we’re at."

Scott Brooks:

"I don’t look at the word ‘disappointment’ as part of it...We’re no different that any other team in this league. We work hard to put ourselves in a position to win a championship and we feel like we’ve done that throughout the years and last year we came close. We definitely are going to give every effort and energy toward winning the championship, but we don’t talk about it. We don’t put it on the chalkboard or in halftime speeches. We just talk about doing what we have to do to get better and win games, and I think we’ve done a good job as an organization of putting ourselves in a position of competing for championships."
