As one of the most talented players in the NBA, Kevin Durant has been able to use his skills to become one of the most popular as well.

With a successful shoe line and an MVP award under his belt, a lot of interest has been put into the OKC Thunder star’s personal life. However, he’s spent most of his career dodging the questions. But in the March issue of GQ, Kevin goes there.

Check out some excerpts from the interview below.

On his “nice guy” reputation:

“I’m a dick. I don’t talk to the other team. If I fall on somebody, I throw them to the ground. I’m not helping them up. I just don’t like other teams or other players. I can’t sit there. I feel like I’m supporting them by watching it. I hope you have a bad game. Because I’m such a hater! I thought it was a bad trait I had. I was like, Man am I jealous? Why do I hate this guy? But I hope both of the teams lose! That’s how I feel.”

On speculation that he will leave the Thunder in 2016:

“I was loyal, if it comes down to that, I mean: I was. My deal’s up in 2016. I’ll have been here nine years. I could easily have wanted out. I could have easily not signed the extension after my rookie contract. I could have not played as hard every night. But people tend to forget. Players are paid to do their jobs, no matter who’s on the court. And as superstars, you gotta lead what you have…You gotta do your job, and you gotta trust that the front office is going to do their job. It’s hard, though. You know what I’m saying? Because it’s like, shit, I want to win. Obviously our players aren’t as good as, you know, than they were before. But you have to figure it out.”

On breaking off his engagement to WNBA player Monica Wright:

“I didn’t really know how to, like, love her, you know what I’m saying? We just went our separate ways. I go to sleep at night, like, ‘Am I gonna be alone forever?’ … I feel like there’s no hope. But I still gotta have faith.”

Gotta love his honesty. The Kevin/GQ issue hits newsstands on February 24.
