Last week, Kevin Durant threw a bit of shade at his Brooklyn Nets teammate by questioning their skill level. KD made it clear that he did not mean any disrespect, but he did say that fans should only expect so much from a starting lineup that featured himself, Edmund Sumner, Royce O’Neale, Joe Harris, and Nic Claxton.

Durant was just being brutally honest. However, it seems that his teammates took their superstar’s comments as a bit of a sleight. They did not appear to take offense, though, but instead, they upped their level of play. The Nets responded by logging two straight wins right after KD made his statement.

For former Nets star Kevin Garnett, he believes that Durant’s comments worked wonders for the squad.
