Westbrook, Durant connect for alley-oop just like old times

When Kevin Durant threw an alley-oop to Russell Westbrook at the NBA All-Star Game people lost their minds online. The two were once teammates on the Oklahoma City Thunder.

And all is well with the world

Durant passes alley-oop to Westbrook and we all sing Kumbaya

For at least a moment Sunday night, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook buried the hatchet to connect on the most talked-about highlight of the All-Star Game's first half. 0:19

They may not be singing Kumbaya but Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant showed some real chemistry at the NBA All-Star Game.

The two former Oklahoma City Thunder teammates barely spoke to each other or about each other when All-Star weekend kicked off in New Orleans on Friday but they put their differences aside on Sunday night.

Fans rejoiced.

When Durant left OKC for Golden State last summer, the two besties split and what could have been an awkward game at Smoothie King Center turned out to be an olive branch between the two.

Looks like time heals all wounds.
