If you follow the NBA, chances are, you’ve got an opinion about Kevin Durant.
Of course, his basketball ability is undeniable. Durant is one of the purest offensive forces the game has ever seen. His combination of height and guard skills is practically unmatched in league history.
Still, he’s divisive. It’s hard to deny that Durant prefers to team up with superstars. If you’re of the belief that NBA players shouldn’t “run from the grind”, he may not be your favorite player.
First, Durant won championships with a Golden State Warriors squad that had already won a ring. Then, he teamed up with James Harden and Kyrie Irving.
Flashforward to the present day and Durant is left to carry a Nets squad that doesn’t feature any other star players.
Could the Nets change that by acquiring Zach LaVine of the Chicago Bulls?
