Kevin Durant has left Oklahoma City. Now, it's time to scrub the city of his image.
That will be a long, painful process, and it starts with the banner of Durant raised on the outside of Chesapeake Energy Arena, where the Thunder play. ESPN reporter -- Royce Young was on-hand to watch as a lonely employee did the dirty work of removing Durant's face from the exterior.
Like any divorce, this one looks like it's going to be messy.

For Oklahoma City, the work to be done isn't just cosmetic. After losing Durant, the team will have to decide whether it wants to retain Russell Westbrook, or if the best solution is a full teardown and rebuild. Tough times in OKC.
