When the Golden State Warriors face the Oklahoma City Thunder tonight at 7:30 p.m. PST, there's little doubt that all the national commentators will be focusing on the relationship between former teammates Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.

Since it's election season -- and, not to mention, the most ridiculous campaign in my lifetime -- the crew at Any Given Wednesday with Bill Simmons created presidential campaign style ads for Durant and Westbrook.

And I can't lie: I laughed at the opening of the Durant one.

This early in the season, it's hard to be mad at people focusing on the interpersonal drama instead of the game on the court so we'll just have to bear with it. But we might as well take a second to laugh about it -- it's hard to foresee the reports of friction between the two going away any time soon, especially if the Thunder remain near the top of the standings.
